You can open the QML file in \QC for editing. By default, the export scripts
generate Qt Quick 1 files. To edit the files in \QMLD, change the import
statements in the export scripts to import Qt Quick 2. Or, you can change
the import statement in each file after generating the files.
If you edit the file in Adobe
Photoshop and export it to the same directory again, any changes you made in
\QC are overwritten. However, you can re-export graphical assets without
recreating the QML code.

The script has been tested to work on GIMP 2. You can download GIMP 2 from

To use the export script on Microsoft Windows, you also need to install the
GIMP Python extension (Python, PyCairo, PyGobject, PyGTK). However, GIMP is
not officially supported on Windows, so we cannot guarantee that this will
work.
