A file extension - Alpha Channel image data file

What is a file? How to open a files?

File type specification:

Graphics file type icon Graphics file type

The A file extension is associated with the Alpha Channel image data format.

The Alpha Channel is this nifty storage area in your image's file for non-visible picture elements. Think of it as your picture's own little private utility closet/filing cabinet. The .psp picture file has these extra goodies stored in its Alpha channel that can just travel around with the picture (unseen until you need them) as a part of the file.

Major items of interest that get stored in the Alpha Channel are Selections, Masks and Creator Information. We can save this stuff to the Alpha channel and then dig it back out later to reuse for editing that picture or using in our other images.

Help how to open A files:

This file type is not meant to be opened directly, there is no software that could open and work with it directly, or there is no information available in public sources about opening this file type. This is usually the case of some internal data files, caches, temporary files etc.

How to convert file with extension A:

As far as we know, this .a file type can't be converted to any other file format. This is usually the case of system, configuration, temporary, or data files containing data exclusive to only one software and used for its own purposes. Also some proprietary or closed file formats cannot be converted to more common file types in order to protect the intellectual property of the developer, which is for example the case of some DRM-protected multimedia files.
