Design files are imported via scanner, 24 bit or 8 bit formats from other systems including digital cameras, internet design archives or other stored design archives. There are 36 formats available to read in data. Tiff formats and JPEG are very common formats for exporting and importing data.

The designers create also their own libraries of ideas and effects during the years. The design data is image enhanced, modified by working within the design or by bringing in data from other designs.
