    Poll: Do you use PNG files for templates?

    It seems like more and more people are using the PSD files for templates instead of the PNG or TIFF files. I thought it would be fun to do a poll and see how much interest there still is in the PNG and TIFF files that are usually included with a digital scrapbooking template. Let me know what you thing by participating in the poll. :)

    This is a great poll to run Anna - especially for template makers like yourself.

    I don't use the .png files. I can grab them from the .psd or .tiff files if I just want to work with one. Since I have so little space on my HD, I usually just keep the .psd folder to work with.

    I was surprised to see the comparison with the psd and tif templates that the tif files were so much smaller. However, with some other layered files (not templates with the simple large colored shapes, but with more typical layered files for a layout) being very much bigger than the psd files. What's up with that? Is that because they were saved without any compression? I did a test with a 4-layer layout, saving as both psd and tif (LZW-RLE compression), and the psd file was 79.4 mb, the tiff file was 64 mb. Is this more typical?
