Information about XCF file format

MIME type image/x-xcf
Developed by eXperimental Computing Facility of the University of California at Berkeley
Type of format Image File
Description The XCF file format is an image file created by the GNU Image Manipulation Program (GIMP), a freely distributed image editing program. XCF files resemble a Photoshop PSD, supporting layers, channels, transparency, paths, and guides. The XCF file format is backward compatible (all versions of GIMP can open earlier versions' files) and, in some cases, forward compatible. However, using XCF for data interchange is not recommended by the developers of GIMP, as there may be format changes in future versions, and XCF reflects various internal data structures for GIMP.
Technical details The XCF format is designed to store the entire part of the state of the Gimp that is specific to one image, apart from undoing data. An XCF file is a sequence of bytes that describes a stack of layers and channels on a canvas, which is effectively just a rectangular viewport for the layers and channels. It contains a series of data structures, with the main image structure coming at the very beginning of the file. The first 9 bytes of an XCF file are the ASCII string "gimp xcf".
