    Question how do you make a photoshop cs2 file open in photoshop 6?

    Hi all,

    I've been working on a design layout for a website in Photoshop CS2, but the web developer I'm working with only has version 6 and cannot open the file. Does anyone know how you convert files to work with previous versions of photoshop? I've been searching the web and I cant find the answer anywhere...

    Is the file a PSD? If so you are out of luck. Alot of Early PS versions work with Later, but not vice versa.

    are you positive? i saw this mentioned in the support section of adobe.com (http://www.adobe.com/support/techdocs/332271.html ):


    Set Maximize PSD And PSB File Compatibility to Ask

    Maximize PSD and PSB File Compatibility increases the size of your file by attaching a flattened copy of your image when you save your image. In past versions of Photoshop, you didn't need to keep this option on. In Photoshop CS2, however, a small amount of extra data is included in the file when you choose this option that ensures that PSD and PBS files saved in Photoshop CS2 will open in previous versions. Additionally, when this option is on, and you open a Photoshop CS2 image in a previous version with a feature in it that cannot be supported by the older version, Photoshop will display a warning message.

    If you are saving files in Photoshop CS2 for use in older versions, then save them with this option on (that is, set to Ask or Always)

    --

    to me this indicated that it was possible, but i dont see how it works. the box talking about max compatibility always pops up when i save the file and i hit okay...but obviously im not understanding the functionality of it.

    i need this other person to be able to open it and work with the different layers i made. i just want to be certain it cant be done before i have to recreate the damn layout in version 6

    using elements 2 and cs2 at school, using psd i never had any conversion problems... except when I had selection masks saved/turned on, the mask wouldn't appear as a layer and would just be there, a red opaque field of whatever the mask was... kinda lame, although I could load it up in cs2 and turn it off and it'd be fine when i opened it at home, the mask would also still be available in cs2

    the easy answer would be for the web developer to download a trial copy of CS2
