Can Mac Photoshop 7 save file as a Mac Photoshop 6 file? - Adobe Photoshop Mac CS, CS2 & CS3

I do not have access to Photoshop 7. Does anyone know off the top of their head if Photoshop 7 native file can be read by Photoshop 6? Or, is there a Photoshop 6 "Save As File Type" in Photoshop 7? Thanks....

    Yes. but if there are any PS7 features they will not be available in 6

    PS7 file needs to be save with maximum compatability

    So you are saying there is no "Save as 6.0 file" in 7.0....just perform a default save in 7.0 and the format is the same as 6.0? Yes I realize that commands I may have used in 7.0 I do not have in 6.0...but if the format is the same, the images and layout should be identical.

    Rich,

    That's right, Photoshop PSD files are backwards compatible all the way back to version 3.0. The only thing you won't have is any later features not included in the version you are using to open the file, for instance Layers if you open a file with layers in a version prior to when Layers were first introduced.

    A minor exception to the above is that a bug in Photoshop 6 prevents some files created in Photoshop8 (CS) from opening in Photoshop6.
