Export .xcf

Post  Emre Bahis on Sun 22 May 2016, 10:21 pm

Hi,
As you know GIMP is an open source image manipulation software and .xcf is native format its.
Do you have any plan for exporting to .xcf ?
Thanks in advance

Since GIMP can open .PSD, you can already export to GIMP from Expresii with layers.
Is there any advantage of using .XCF over .PSD?

EXPORT .XCF

Thanks for your reply,
Ofcourse, this is regarding the usage practice.
I am using GIMP and xcf. When I need then I can convert my works.

I'll see if there're more ppl demanding .XCF export support. So far, I'd like to keep things simple. :-)
BTW, if you don't need layered structure nor alpha, you can simply use copy and paste to export RGB images from Expresii to other tools.

EXPORT .XCF

Post  Emre Bahis on Tue 24 May 2016, 8:58 pm

I need alpha channel always. When I use export in Expresii, I check alpha and no paper. If I need layered work, I export my work step by step with png and then I open every png files on GIMP then save one file with xcf.

I have a small problem with png. Forexample, I aranged square work space 6 x 6 unit and I painted only underside. When I exported the work with png then the top of right part of the work is always white.

Sorry for late reply. For exporting with layers, you can choose .PSD. I was able to output a 1.5 GB .PSD (always in layers) and was able to open it in GIMP.

And the half-paper white issue should be fixed too since a recent version. Smile

Sorry for the large size of PSD. In next version we'll add a little compression, but it still won't reduce too much. For now, please use GIMP to export to another .psd which would be much smaller.
