Import from Pixelmatr via PSD is not working

Recommended Posts

I have been using Pixelmator (PM) for several months and I would like to use Affinity Photo (AP) instead. To do this, I must convert all my Pixelmatr documents to an AP-compatible format.


Since there is no direct import of PXM files, I exported the files from PM to PSD and then opened them up in AP. I get a warning message that the "sRGB IEC..." profile was assigned to my file, but nothing shows up on screen. I can see most of the layers in AP, but some are missing and turning them on or off has no effect on showing the image.


I just purchased Affinity Photo v1.3.4 via the Mac App Store and I have OS X Yosemite 10.10.3 as well as Pixelmator 3.3.2 Limestone.


Any help getting this resolved would be most welcome.

In Pixelmator, before exporting, go to Image -> Color Profile, and change it to Universal.  Doing this allowed me to open the PSD in Affinity Photo without issue.

Can you upload an example of a PSD file you exported from Pixelmator that does not open in Affinity?  Then I can test the importer.


Also, does your PSD open in Photoshop?  We have seen PSD files exported by a number of third party apps that Photoshop wouldn't actually open.
