File formats that will import to PE

It says the program is compatibility with psd, tiff, and jpg files.  Do these files have to be 8 bit only or will it take 16 bit files?

No Data
  • 8 bit only, and no extra complicated stuff - no adjustment layers, no editable text, no nested layer groups (groups inside of groups), no clipping layers; I don't remember if painter essentials supports layer masking, but it's safer to avoid those as well for stability and performance reasons.

    hope this helps!
