Electric Image (part of Optional Multiplugin)

The ElectricImage Multiplugin format plug-in allows you to read and write files in the ElectricImage picture format. ElectricImage 3D rendering software uses this format.

The HSL&HSB plug-in allows conversion from RGB > HSL (Hue, Saturation, and Lightness) and back, and from RGB > HSB (Hue, Saturation, and Brightness) and back within Photoshop.
