Strictly speaking, as I understand the product, Genuine Fractals isn't
completely lossless, perhaps I'm wrong about that though, if I could
find my GF manual it might explain that. However the disadvantage for
the STN file format is that it is only an 8 bit image format,

I don't know anything about Mr. Sid where can one find info about it?
