Importing PSD results in flattened image

Recommended Posts

OK, this is really weird, so maybe it’s something I’ve done. But what seems to have happened is that importing (from Pixelmator as) a Photoshop file seems to make the image come in as a flattened image (no layers).

 

It all seemed to work at first. In Pixelmator on iPad, I would choose export, then select Photoshop format, then select Affinity Photo, and it would import with layers and everything.

 

Then, in one image in Affinity Photo, I chose to merge 2 layers.

 

Now, every time I try to import an image, it comes in flattened!?!?!?! I killed both apps and tried it again, and still the same thing. Did I set some flag or something? Is this a bug? Is this an iOS 11 beta bug? Any help is appreciated. I’m using iOS 11 Beta (5? 6? Whatever the latest is) on an original (2015) iPad Pro 12.9”. Thanks.

Hi Puca

 

The only flattening option we have for PSD is for text. Although we are not able to import absolutely everything 1:1, so there could be something in the file we don not understand causing it to be flattened. Are you able to provide an example file for us to look into?

 

Thanks

Never mind! 

 

I somehow switched my workflow, and was exporting the images the wrong way.

 

I’ve retraced my steps and now all is good again.

 

Sorry to bother you.
