  • How do we feel about image format tags such as , or ?

  • And what about file formats like or ?

As an example, I just tagged this question with EPS.

    I thought we already had most of them. Definitely yes! Also, just an idea - we could add links in our tag descriptions to other SEs that have the same tags with a snippet about their scope around it. Extra helpful for everyone.

Generally, I think it would be good with more tag diversity. Format tags would be good, provided it is relevant to the question in the sense that discussing some effect in Photoshop does not require a .psd tag. It will of course have a photoshop-tag.

It would have to have some relevance to the question, not generally Photoshop = .psd.

On tag diversity in general, I think i would be good with a Meta post with some brainstorming.

I see tags as a fairly hierarchical structure, where you go from the most general to as specific as possible in five tags. Example; someone has trouble with layers and saving:

  1. bitmap
  2. photoshop
  3. layer
  4. save /file-type
  5. .psd

So, I am all for it.
