Cannot get PSD file to work
When I try to open a PSD file in GIMP, it breaks - the color is lost.

Here is what it should look like:

This is how it appears in gimp:

Here is the original, if any one can convert it to a format that actually works???

RE: Cannot get PSD file to work
PS .psd is a proprietry format, with secrets only known to Adobe Wink even worse, each new version has a slightly different format.

This is in my old PS7 and you can see the many 'effects' layers that gimp does not have an equivalent. http://i.imgur.com/IVYfX.jpg

One way is just to convert the psd image to another format, I used XnView for this bottom image. (& to get the colours)

If for some reason you want to keep the Gimp layers. Maybe something like this.

1. working on Layer 1, use the color selector but select transparency, invert the selection and fill with the darker green.
2. on the Color dot layer, same procedure but fill with the lighter green.
3. on the Havoc layer, same procedure, fill with black.
4. Not too sure what Layer 2 is for, some sort of highlight. Turn it off?
