I have a layered PSD file that I want to open in GIMP.  It gives an error citing that it cannot separate cmyk.  Not good.  Assistance is greatly appreciated.

Scribus with a
good ICC profile will convert the RGB components to CMYK automatically.
The developmental version of Scribus, 1.5.0, will also convert to the
PDF X/1-a:2001 format required by LSI and other printers.
