I am stuck in trying to find a software which can render PSD files properly under Ubuntu. I have tried GIMP and Krita but they both have problems with that - especially the clipping mask functionality.

Is there a working solution for Ubuntu?

If you are interested only in viewing them. This page: http://blog.pixarea.com/2011/10/opening-photoshop-psd-files-in-ubuntu-11-10-oneiric-ocelot seems to suggest that LibreOffice will do the trick. If you need to edit them, you may have to resolve to Photoshop via Wine.

You could try buying and installing Adobe Photoshop using a tool called PlayOnLinux: http://www.playonlinux.com/en/ CS6 seems to be Silver (applications with minor issues that do not affect typical usage) in Ubuntu 13.04 - http://appdb.winehq.org/objectManager.php?sClass=version&iId=25607

Failing that you're just going to have to put up with GIMP (despite the problems) sorry.

  • +1 for GIMP. Getting selected layer position as simple as writing python script (NO.)

  • Gimp is a piece of **** legacy with a not friendly UI.
