Version: 1.6.0 (using KDE 4.5.4)
Wishlist: DigiKam currently only supports display of 8 bit PSD images. 16 bit PSD images are not viewable. This is highly desirable - as many photographers use Photoshop (yes, with Wine) and process and archive their images as 16 bit. Otherwise, digiKam is a beautiful program - my compliments to the developers.
Steps to Reproduce:
Attempt to view a folder of 16 bit PSD images.
Generic icons are displayed in place of thumbnails of the actual images.
Thumbnails of the 16 bit PSD images should be viewable
Can you provide some PSD image files to test
Or better, a documentation of newer PSD format?
Hum, PSD is a proprietary format from Adobe. Ther is no doc avaialble, only reverse engineering work, as ImageMAgick PSD loader for ex :
There is also FreeImage loader :
A beta libpsd exist too, as beta :
The KDE/QImage image loader (8 bits) can be also adapted to digiKam:
digiKam do not have code to handle PSD image. It's delegate to KDE image IO component.
