I'd like to load multi-layered images into AS3. I used an psd-to-as3 parser (github.com/warrenseine/as3-psd-parser) and it works fine, but is INCREDIBLY slow. It perhaps takes 8 seconds to parse a 2MB PSD file. Unsurprisingly, reducing the file size reduces the time taken to load the image, but no way near as this would be achieved if I just converted all the layers in the image to PNG and loaded those individually (with bulkloader).
I thought to see if TIFFs were also similarly slow to be loaded, but have yet to find a small enough add on collection of classes to let me do so.
Any suggestions would be appreciated
