It is the PSD format problem. GIMP uses XCF as it's native format and
it is the only format which supports ALL gimp's features. You should
always save your images as XCF to avoid any data loss (such as text
formatting, composition modes and so). If you need to reuse the image
in PS afterwards you should save to PSD only after you are not likely
to edit the image in GIMP again. If you don't need to use the image in
photoshop then there is no point in saving to PSD.
