I'm trying to find information on how to load a .psd file.

I want to be able to use .psd as a texture format. Does anybody know how the file is structured, or have any information on it. My searching has proved useless, I keep getting articles about texturing inside Photoshop.

Thanks.

"PSD file format specification" returns [url="http://www.adobe.com/devnet-apps/photoshop/fileformatashtml/"]official documentation[/url].

Note that PSD is very unwieldy for production use since supporting just the basic subset of features is a huge pain, not to mention that individual parts are mostly meaningless, since you'd need to reimplement entire photoshop to get accurate rendering.

[url="http://freeimage.sourceforge.net/"]FreeImage[/url] supports .psd's -- although I'm sure just a subset of the format.
