Now Krita would be able to load Grayscale PSD as well

Hiya Planet!

After long time i am back again for commits πŸ™‚ So yesterday i pushed some code to open Grayscale PSD in Krita.


Please send me the PSD that dont open. I will try to make them work. A lot of work has to be done yet actually its never ending because of so many features πŸ™‚

“Hack the Planet” GSOC 2011 Krita Import and Export of Photoshop PSD File in KRITA

Heya Planet!

I am Gsoc student for KDE many of you already know about me πŸ™‚

So here is my update as i promised and asked you all to stay tuned

Krita can now load PSD [ Any Size , 16 bit Depth, RAW DATA, RGB, Single Layer or the Base Background Layer]

Here are the screenshots πŸ™‚

Some Parts are Under Construction πŸ˜›

I tried loading these 2 psd files. Now for this week i have plans

1) Support for RLE Encoded PSD files

2) Loading PSD file which has n number of layers

All of GSOCers Happy Hacking on KDE Projects πŸ™‚ wait for my next update

The PSD Code (Krita import/export gsoc 2011)

Hi Planet! πŸ™‚

Just small update about PSD and Krita.I have started working on it for almost 2 weeks and i have been in contact with my mentor Boudewijn RemptΒ  and He is helping me a lot with my questions so far i have got all the needed information about PSD and Krita I just wanted to tell planet where i am upto with that.So here are my notes below.Code for reading Header in PSD works fine the problems starts to occur where it goes into reading Image Resource Block in PSD which is bit more complex to handle so i am working on it and trying hard to get that done this week.I am almost there to read that stuff so far i have tried my bits and pieces of code with other code to read file and that has started giving some results, but the code that is there in krita psd completly fails to load layer 😦 Task of doing this is tough i must say but exciting to work on and definitely not impossible πŸ™‚

So stay tuned with my post for next week

Krita and Google Summer of code 2011

Hiya Planet,

I have been lazy writing a blog as i didnt had much to say πŸ™‚ but here is my introduction and some briefings about my project. I am Siddharth Sharma from India (irc:siddvicious/h4xordood) i did last summer plasma dashboard for skrooge and now its one more too much interesting project “Psd (Photoshop Document) import / export support in Krita”. I was at at kde conf in Banglore (March 2011) as speaker where i met interesting people, cool kde hackers. It was my first conference and was so much exciting to meet KDE Folks. I got started with Calligra as i met Inge Wallin and Boudewijn Rempt in Bangalore. I started of with minor bug fixing. so i am discussing everything related to my project with my mentor Boudewijn Rempt for this gsoc 2011. Psd import and export is very interesting project for me to do as i would be learning many new things and would be diving into code more deeper. My mentor has been helping me with understanding Krita code and explaing code which would be helpful for me during the project. Soon i will have something interesting to show as our coding period starts just 2 days left.
