Embedded Path in JPG not available
Hi, j pgs can contain paths info.
In Photoshop you'll be able to get that path.

We use it alot for packshots, this way we can save a JPG, but with an embedded outline Path, this way you'll always be able to "cut out" the packshot by selecting the path.

Sadly it does not work with gimp =/

RE: Embedded Path in JPG not available
Ok, i might be wrong about JPG's are truky able to embed a Path..don't know how it do it.. but it works..and it's very useful

Here's an example of a JPG, if opened in PS you can select a Path in Paths tab.

Ok, do-able, but sounds a bit complicated, and you'll end up dealing with more than one file..import paths seperately etc. atleast thats how i read it.

Thanks for elaborating!
