    yes, you dont even need to import.
    gimp can open .PSD files as others like JPG or BMP.

    If someone asks you to sudo rm -rf anything, don't do it, and don't run any command with rm in it unless you know exactly what you're doing. See here for more info

    Gimp can open PSD if file is in RGB. File in Gimp will loose text information, layers blending, layers folders and all features which aren't supported with Gimp.

    Thanks everyone.

    Now another question. Does PhotoShop exports in GIMP format?

    Thanks!

    Interesting question. Would love an answer to it as well. I am afraid the answer is no though...

    A proprietary software company supporting an open format?!! I guess if that were to happen, the Universe would collapse unto itself!!

    The universe tends towards more entropy. And the chaos of closed formats = teh entropy. Open source formats would tend towards less entropy, hence contrary to the nature of the universe...

    Re: Can GIMP import PSD

    Gimp can import PSD files, losing the following:
    1. Layer comps
    2. Layer effects (shadow, glow, etc)
    3. Vector objects
    4. Layer masks

    So, if you have a web design in PSD, you can almost 100% be sure that the imported file will not be as intended.

    Photoshop exports to a number of intermediary formats, reducing the functionality and rasterizing the effects, where possible.
