Frequently Asked Questions
Which export file types support layers?While ArtRage’s PTG format fully supports layers, the only file type that will also support layers when exported is PSD (Photoshop). All other file types will flatten the painting down to a single layer when exported.
What image formats does ArtRage use?ArtRage uses the custom file type “PTG”, and all paintings will be saved in this format. It’s always a good idea to keep a copy of your work in Artrage painting format (PTG), as this format supports layers, paint thickness, paint wetness and so on. However you can also import and export your work as other standard image types.
To save a painting in a non-PTG format, go to File > Export as Image (ArtRage 2) or File > Export Image File (ArtRage 3 & later), then select the format you wish to use.
To load a non-PTG file as a new painting or as a new layer in an existing painting, go to File > Import Image File or Import Image File to Layer.
