Full .TIFF support (= layers included)

I really hope you support .TIFF-files with layers in the next time. Currently On1 Photo Raw can show them, but better no one try to open it in an editor. He will loose all his work (layers). It’s a pitty that the Mother of image files is cutted. Instead this just .PSD is supported fully. I don’t no why.

On1 Photo RAW has the best developer for Fuji-RAWs actually, but currently I must open .TIFF-files with included layers in an editor with my windows explorer – no good idea, I think.

Cheers Mark

    I too would prefer to save in tiff, especially to exchange photos with other users who do not use PS.

      In my opinion it is stupid to support proprietary files like PSD fully. It is like going on knees before Adobe.
      I decided to to work with Capture One in future. The answer of On1 is inadmissible.

    I doubly agree with this as I use the Topax filters are well which work best with TIFF.

      TIFF is the first and oldest file format for graphic content. It is open an not a proprietary file like PSD. Basically there is no need to discuss but On1 think different.

    Definitely need to be able to have TIFF fully supported. When I use(d) Lightroom and Photoshop I always save files in TIFF format to stay away from Adobe proprietary formats (PSD). Trying to fully switch to using On1 is painful because it doesn’t open and in fact seems to compress all the layers in my elaborately created TIFF files into on flat layer. This is unacceptable for a program that is trying to become a dominant force in photo editing.

    Agree with everything said.
    Used Tiff files for many years now and the ability to have these files fully supported would be a big selling factor for the product.
    If I use PSD I may as well use Photoshop.

    Would really like to see layered TIFF supported. No way to get these directly files into On1, and prefer to save my layered files in this format.

    For those of us who don’t want to use adobe standards, the lack of Tiff layers is a shame.Please let us use On1 as a true Adobe alternative

    Absolutely ridiculous not to support layered tiff! How am I supposed to effectively get away from Adobe by going to your product if you force me into Adobe’s proprietary world?

    Am I reading this correctly… That this topic has been “declined”? Adding TIFF files would greatly enhance the workflow for many of us who scan our old photos. Most scanners on the market, particularly Epson products, allow you to choose TIFF or JPG files. TIFF is the way to go if one wishes to edit fully as a RAW file.

    Please reconsider this request. It is extremely valid. Thanks!
