This morning I was asked to change the text on a button appearing in our
software. I don't have Photoshop, but do have Gimp 2.4.7 installed.

The original art was a TIF that had three layers, I was told. I couldn't get
GIMP to show them to me.

When we went to another user's PC and opened the TIF in Photoshop CS3
Extended, there were the three layers and the text was easily changed for
each of the three layers.

Is displaying/editing TIF layers a function that GIMP does not yet include?
