I got an idea to make a new portable 2D image format. I know that there is already BMP, but this one will support layers, frames, masks, many compression methods, etc.. I was just wondering if this is a good idea, and if I should go on with it. If so, I will make conversion tools and libraries to handle them in programs, and maybe more. If I do go on with this, I will open up a web site for it. Here comes the Thnikkaman!

TIFF and PSD already support the exact same things. Source, documentation and libraries are already freely available, as are programs that support them. I see no need to re-invent the wheel yet again. (Hmm... doesn''t the Gimp also have a native format of some sort? Or were I hallucinating about that?)
