I have a problem (which I had previously on completely another Ubuntu and older versions of Gimp [now I have the latest - 2.8.10]). When I open PSDs with transparent layers, they get displayed in a wrong color and kind of shrinked.
I did set image mode to RGB. In Photoshop it displays properly with RGB color profile.

Here are the examples:

What could be the issue?

    What does "render the PSD" mean in this context? And is "they" the layers or the whole image? Maybe you can add examples/screenshots to improve your question. – Michael Schumacher Dec 23 '14 at 11:48
  • @MichaelSchumacher, I added photos. By 'render' I meant just 'open'. – user36159 Dec 23 '14 at 15:12

    The first is how it is supposed to look like, the second how it looks like in GIMP? – Michael Schumacher Dec 24 '14 at 17:23
  • @MichaelSchumacher, yep, exactly (except for pics of course:-)) – user36159 Dec 24 '14 at 17:29

    GIMP doesn't claim to support PSD fully, so this could be any number of reasons. However, those templates usually assume that you know a reasonable subset of Photoshop features inside out, so maybe you are just expected to show of hide some additional layers. Note that GIMP does not support adjustment layers. – Michael Schumacher Dec 25 '14 at 10:27
