A free software plug-in has been released that makes a treasure trove of archival astronomical images and spectra accessible to home astronomy enthusiasts. Now anyone with a desktop computer running Adobe Photoshop can try their hand at crafting astronomical images.

Take a look at these news stories for more info:

perhaps I'm missong the point, but doesnt this just let you manipulate FITS images in photoshop (and the expensive full version at that)?

gimp ( www.gimp.org/ ) lets you view and manipulate fits images for free.

Pity it only works with Photoshop 7 and CS and not Photoshop 6 which I have. I did try but the plug-in application file does not detect Photoshop on my computer, so is obviously incompatible with older versions.
