psB file support? (BIG photoshop format)
Just installed gimp 2.8.10 (Windows 7 64bit) and tried opening a PSB (photoshop's big format for files over 4GB).

It says "unsupported file format version 2"

Should gimp open PSB files? If not, is there a plugin that would add the support?

I tried google'ing first, and found posts from years ago saying PSB wasn't supported in gimp. But, figured after several years of development, it was worth checking in again.

RE: psB file support? (BIG photoshop format)
According to this thread:

I don't think its possible to open a .psb file even with the plugin [in Gimp]. You can open .psd files though.

*But, I believe imagemagick can open & convert .psb files, worth checking out @ imagemagick org
