For me, one of the greatest hindrances to migrating to GIMP is its inability to handle layered TIFF files. I have a large number of such files, with zip compression, and I really don't wan't to have to change this format, because for one thing my preferred picture viewer can handle layered TIFF files but can't handle GIMP format (at least, not yet. I have put in a request to the author and it is possible that in future this capability may be added) and for another thing, TIFF with zip compression seems to provide the most compact lossless format for layered files. Any chance that the ability to load/save layered TIFF files (with zip compression) might appear in a future version of GIMP?
