An updated Photoshop (.psd) import filter is now available for Adobe® InDesign® 1.5.2. This filter offers enhanced support for importing Adobe Photoshop® 6.0 (and earlier) files, including RGB, CMYK, LAB, Index, grayscale, and bitmap images. On import, InDesign 1.5.2 flattens the Photoshop image data, while leaving the original file untouched. The following settings are automatically included in the flattened image:
* Image data stored in layers, grouped layers, layer sets, and hidden layers
* Layer masks
* Layer blending modes/ranges
* Layer opacity
* Layer effects
* Adjustment layers
* Composite transparency
* Vector masks
* Text layers
* Patterns and styles
* Alpha channels and paths, which by default are converted into editable InDesign clipping paths

To use the Photoshop 6.0 import filter, you must have InDesign 1.5.2 for Mac OS installed (InDesign 1.5.2 runs on Mac OS software versions 8.5.x, 8.6, and 9.x).
If you are running InDesign 1.5, you can at no charge by downloading the appropriate language update.
After downloading a ".hqx" file on a Macintosh, use StuffIt Deluxe or StuffIt Expander to access the file's contents. StuffIt Expander is available as a freeware product.
NOTE: Please ensure you have the latest version of StuffIt by Allume Systems, Inc.

The updated Photoshop import filter is compatible with all Roman language versions of InDesign, including Universal English, French, German, Swedish, Spanish, Italian, Dutch, Finnish, Norwegian, Danish, and Brazilian Portuguese.
