Interested to help GIMP improve support for PSD file format? Recently we merged updated PSD plugin code from last year's GSoC branch. The plugin was ported to GEGL and got high bit depth support in the importing part.
Unfortunately it seems to be broken (layer data is not correctly preserved), and we are somewhat out of contributors to work on it at the moment (the GSoC student is currently unavailable). Hence we'd appreciate, if someone could have a look at what the code is doing, and then patch it.
For testing purposes (that is, to see what happens now) you can use builds from http://nightly.darkrefraction.com/gimp/dev/
on Windows, or just build the code from Git master branch on Linux.
The source us here: https://git.gnome.org/browse/gimp/tree/plug-ins/file-psd
Additionally, it would be great to get public API for handling text layer data. This would make it possible to plug the existing code that parses text layers in PSD to the API and hence make it possible to preserve and edit text layers in PSD files.
If you feel like doing any of the above, feel free to drop by at #gimp
. Or there's always the gimp-developer@ mailing list, of course :)https://mail.gnome.org/mailman/listinfo/gimp-developer-list
