Opening a PSD image...

I'm using a template for creating printed buttons that I downloaded off a website, only problem is it's a PSD image and Gimp isn't able to open it... because (according to the message prompt) that it can't open a CMYK and that the plug-in isn't able to.

Is there a plug-in that I can use so that I can upon the image in Gimp?

I should also mention that I am a very new user to Gimp... I've been using Photoshop for the past few years and according to my brother (The Computer Guy) I can't use it on our new processor.

Many thanks. :)

There is a plug-in.. I don't know how succesfull you can get but http://www.blackfiveservices.co.uk/separate.shtml has a limited support for CMYK. I don't guarantee it but good luck! -- Some GIMP Tutorials

Hi, I try to open a PSD fil too, but a have a "no ghostscript" issue...

Is this is PSD file (common file name extension: .psd) or a Postscript file (common file name extension: .ps)?

to download GhostScript and install it.It is free and installs quickly and effortlessly.
Just Google it for a download from Sourceforge.
Gimp doesn't use postscript it uses Ghost Script for printing docs (like PDF.EPS.and others).

I've downloaded it but I can't find any .exe in the folder.
What file should I deal with? I've uploaded a screenshot here: http://www.id-meneo.com/img/Ghostscript-install-trouble.html
