Resource files are files sent to Post-production teams to aid in retouching but are not required to be returned to Creative Force. They can be used to create composite images, for stacking, or just as general support files for the retouching teams. Sending resource files with Creative Force couldn’t be easier.
How to send an image as a Resource File
In Kelvin, simply drag and drop your resource file to the position it will be used to support. Next, right-click the resource image and select ‘Covert to Resource’:

You have the option to convert transferred assets to resource files if Final Selection is taking place in Gamma rather than Kelvin. Simply right-click the image you’d like to send as a resource file and select ‘Convert to Resource’
