Hello!
I have the problem that files exported from AFFINITY Photo for Windows as PSD are opened as flattened in the iOS version of Pixelmator. Also PSD files from Photoshop CS2 are affected the same way.

The file itself is always quite simple, layer 1 = background color, layer 2 = logo. Complete size 2,5MB, so simple and less memory.

Photoshop Windows (old Version, CS2) and Affinity Photo Windows opens the file correctly but I would love to work with Pixelmator for iOS as well on the iPhone


Anyone got an idea?
Thx for your help!

Hey there, could you share the PSD with us at support@pixelmator.com? That will give us a much better idea about what could be going on!

Looks like it is a problem due to CMYK file and pixelmator iOS app cannot work with CMYK layered files.

Ah, yes, the CMYK color mode isn't currently supported in Pixelmator for iOS so this can indeed happen with those files...
