I found these great skin textures on ShareCG in PSD format, but, apparently, they were exported from Paint Shop Pro and GIMP cannot handle them.

Does anyone know how I can convert them so I can get them into GIMP?

It comes in two Versions PS and PSP if your Gimp can read psd files for Photoshop you should be able to use them.

The PSD files will not open in GIMP.  That IS The problem.  I even downloaded PSP and exported the PSP native files to PSD and those did not work either.

What I’m trying to avoid doing is dis assembling the files in PSP and reconstructing them in GIMP… I have PSP for 30 days and will not buy it (I love GIMP).  If worse comes to worse, I’ll learn to do exactly that, but I’m hoping to just get the files into GIMP without all that labour…

There is something in the saving info or age of the file as I cannot load it in to GIMP 2.8.2 either but if I resave the PSD from Photoshop Elements then I can open it up in GIMP.

I would be gald to BUT for this comment (4th down from your comment)

You cannot redistribute the PSD’s as a whole. you are allowed to make a single layer Texture using this as a tool.

however if you contact the vender I would be happy to send them or you (if they say it is ok) the newly saved PSD’s if they are willing. I just wouldn’t feel comfortable doing it the wrong way.

Funny…I can get the torso to open, but not the face or limbs.

I’m hoping Daniel will add the XCF files I now have to that zip. They work exactly the way they’re supposed to.

It’s all good.  And yes, I did get permission.  The file is being offered as an MR.  And the way they’re set up, you could do one whole hell of a lot with them!  Especially in combination with other MRs
