Probably also related.
If you try to use mage.preview.icon_id as parameter of any UI component such label or operator you get an empty result using PSD and TIF files. Only jpg and png works. Also PNG at this case don't have transparency as it should.


for image in
            layout.label(text =, icon_value=image.preview.icon_id)

There is a known limitation for PSD files that has been described on T70495.

We do not support loading PSD from from memory as happens for packed files, since that is not supported by OpenImageIO.
We could work around this by writing the memory block to a temporary file on disk and then reading that.

The problem must be related.
