I'm a new user, trying out GIMP. I have a requirement to edit some
files in geotiff format. When I open the file, I get an alert dialog
about unrecognized tags (which is OK as long as the data in them are
preserved) but these files are in 8,8,8 color and when GIMP loads them,
they are in 8 bit greyscale. So far I have been unsuccessful in
figuring out why the 3 layers aren't being preserved.
