    Hello all :)

    I've been working on a PSD file for quite some time. It's almost near completion, but today when I went to open it, the message

    "Error loading PSD file: Unsupported compression mode: 65488"

    appeared. I've been searching the web for a bit trying to find answers or plugins to help solve the problem because I really would rather not start over on my project. I'm running GIMP 2.6.3 on a Mac using X11. I will be happy to supply any other info that could help solve the problem.

    Thanks so much for your help!

    I have the same problem: open psd file, editing in GIMP, then save and close. And can't open it again.

    Re: Error loading PSD file: Unsupported compression mode: 65

    First off let me say I completely sympathize with this exact issue. I have lost hours and hours of work and just now I found the answer to this problem:

    Go to <a class="postlink" href="http://www.datanumen.com/apsr/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;">http://www.datanumen.com/apsr/</a> (my anti-virus software deemed it safe and it has not given me any issues) Download it and it will ask you to select the corrupted psd file. It will copy your original file and splice all your layers into new files. (dont worry) When you go to your program (for me, gimp) open up all those files. It will then smash them all back together into one. UNFORTUNATELY you won't have your layers seperate anymore. But hey, it's better than starting over, right?

    HOPE THIS HELPS!!
