Nope, photoshop using .png format transparency, not separate alpha channel. So people who use photoshop with alpha channel for gamedev purpose (eg unreal engine) are screwed.

Takkaria, thanks, but I as I noted above this is deeper problem: when you open .png in photoshop it doesn't show alpha channel for it, it's got only RGB channels; cause it define alpha as .png format transparency. So after you edit the file in photoshop and wanna save it - it 'writes' in .png channel 'transparency', not alpha.. So it makes transparent pixel as white ones (as in my 1st screenshots)..

I've downloaded GIMP - when you open .png with this program - it shows separate alpha channel there, so it's working alright... But GIMP isn't really comfortable, so much photoshop functions doesn't work there
