So I decided to try to write GdkPixbuf loader that would let applications like gThumb or Eye of Gnome open PSDs. After some time it seems to be working, but it's still far from complete. Anyway, the loader handles RGB images with 8bit color depth - I assume these are most common (at least most PSDs on my hard disk are such ones). It is possible to add support for CMYK, Grayscale and others."
Hey Jan you are my personal hero at all and i will support your development by a donation that i promised once. You can grab a Deb package that works with Ubuntu Hardy and Ibex at the Google Code page.
