What is a .COLZ file?

The .COLZ file extension refers to an Adobe Collage File, which is a type of file created using Adobe Collage. Adobe Collage was an application designed to help users create modern moodboards, which are visual presentations or collages that compile images, text, and other elements to convey a particular style or concept. These files can include various types of content such as graphics from .PDF (Portable Document Format), .PSD (Photoshop Document), and .AI (Adobe Illustrator) files. Additionally, .COLZ files can contain unique elements like hand-drawn graphics created with a pen tool and text.

To open a .COLZ file, you need to use Adobe Photoshop, but it requires a specific script called the Adobe Collage COLZ script. This script enables Adobe Photoshop to import and work with .COLZ files. You can open these files in Adobe Photoshop CS4 or later versions. Once the COLZ script is installed in Photoshop, you can import a .COLZ file by navigating through the menu: File → Scripts → Import Adobe Collage.

Furthermore, .COLZ files can be uploaded to and shared on the Adobe Creative Cloud platform. This allows for easy sharing and collaboration among different users who can access the moodboards and contribute or make changes.

It's important to note that Adobe Collage, the original application for creating these files, is no longer available as an Android app. However, the files can still be used and shared through Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Creative Cloud with the appropriate setups.
