How does GIMP 2.10.4 load the layers of the PSD file?
#1
Question 
GIMP 2.10.4 In order to display the PSD file correctly, the "Merge" function is activated! 
But how should I show all the layers?  Sad

It is explained here: https://www.gimp.org/news/2018/07/04/gim...provements

There are the two options in the Open File dialogue. At the moment all I can suggest is set the file type to photoshop image (*.psd), see if it makes any difference. 

   

If you can post a link to the problem file, even better. I picked up a free psd but do not know if it is 'maximum compatibility' or not

Just use the PSD saved by GIMP, but now the PSD saved by GIMP can't see the layers again.
So I can't edit the design on a layer.

I do not know, I use .psd files once in a "blue-moon" as the saying goes.

I was referring to opening the .psd not saving. Gimp will save whatever it loaded.

Maybe Gimp 2.10 will automatically merge without regard to if photoshop image(*.psd) or photoshop image (merged)(*.psd) was selected. I do not know without a definitive psd image.

With the psd I just downloaded, I see no difference between Gimp 2.8 and Gimp 2.10 Any adjustment layers/fx layers, if they were there, are gone.

Using a Gimp 2.10.4 linux flatpack here so I can keep Gimp 2.8.22 as an alternative. If you can give a link to the problem psd maybe someone can find a solution.

For anyone this is the report https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/gimp/issues/1825

They add a bug tag for just about anything. Do not hold your breath.

This is your procedure:

Quote:1. Create 3 layers in GIMP 2.10.4 and export them as PSD files. (Draw a few strokes on each layer as a marker)

2. Then use GIMP to open this PSD file with only one layer. At this time, there are 3 layers in the PSD file, but GIMP will display the layer as a merged effect.

Must confess I do not understand that, I suspect a language issue.

I make an image with 3 layers, export as a some-name.psd
Close image
Open just saved some-name.psd file.
It has the 3 layers as original.
Nothing merged. Using a Kubuntu 16.04 + flatpak Gimp 2.10.4

Re: rich2005
I just installed flatpak-GIMP, but opening the PSD file is still a layer merge effect @v@
(The operating form of 1 and 2. )
---------------------------------------------------
I have found the cause of the problem.
The problem is the interface language of GIMP.

I tested use Simplified Chinese, Traditional Chinese, Russian interface. ⊙﹏⊙‖∣°
(Opening the PSD file is a layer merge effect.)

Use English (en_US), Korean interface. O(∩_∩)O
(effect is normal, all layers will be displayed.)

Are these indexed images? Indexed color images will flatten the image
