PSD imported from Photoshop: Can't see layers properly.
Hi,
I hope I cam explain my question correctly.
I have a PSD made in Phoshop. In this file I have layers named button which has a blue gradient color:
1. Created a round rectangle tool.
2. Under styles menu, I chose another style which I downloaded from the web (n ASL file).

The problem is that in GIMP I can't see the colors in the layers and only see the base style which is black and white.
Wandering in the web I have downloaded the three scripts from http://registry.gimp.org/node/186 into the plug-ins directory of GIMP, but still it looks like I can't import an ASL file into GIMP.
The weird thing is that opening the PSD in a simple picture viewer (Gwenview) I can see the colors perfectly but I obviously can't work with the layers,

Does anyone have any insights that might help?

Thanks,
Guy

You can see in the attached files a snapshot of the picture as supposed to be (orig.jpg) and as seen in Gimp (gimped.jpg)

This is because Gimp & Photoshop are two different programs, while Gimp acts like a chameleon & try's its best to import cross-platform programs, it has a different style system, so that can get lost on the transfer over from photoshop,

as explained nicely in this thread: http://registry.gimp.org/node/25628

The above thread also has a possible workaround you can try (in photoshop first, if you ever need to start in photoshop again)
