View PSD (Photoshop) files on Linux Desktop with GNOME using gdk-pixbuf-psd
If you are often handling PSD files on your system, you might have issues to preview those on your Linux Desktop system.
For the GNOME Desktop, the file-manager does not display thumbnails of the images nor do those preview with the eog image-viewer.
However this project never had an official release and it appears distributions did not pick this nice feature up.
He also stopped working on the project.
Therefore I took the sources, added a proper build system, " then "zypper in gdk-pixbuf-loader-psd"" href="http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/FunkyM:/gimp/">packaged it for openSUSE and created a first release of gdk-pixbuf-psd 0.1.0 for download.
The loader handles:
- RGB and CMYK images
- RLE compression
- 8 and 16 bit color depths
Perhaps now some distributions are going to pick this up for their base installations now…
