Photoshop file plug-in

Here you find my Paint.NET plug in for loading and saving Photoshop files.

The plug in does not support every feature, which is provided by the file format (there are lot’s of them). I have implemented only the stuff which has it’s counterpart in Paint.NET or if it is useful for converting the image to the Paint.NET internals.
