What is PSD file?

The .PSD file type stands for Adobe Photoshop Document. The .PSD is one of the most used file types in graphics today. Most of the graphics designers design their work using Photoshop software which is used to encode these designs and save them in the form of .PSD documents. The .PSD documents are also used widely by web programmers to implement the design and convert them into html format. The .PSD file format supports layered design which makes it unique for the designers adding sophistication to their designs. The .PSD is a proprietary file format of Adobe Inc.

We hope we helped you solve the problem with the PSD file. If you do not know where you can download the application from our list, click on the link (which is the name of the program) - you will find more information there on the location where to download the secure setup version of the required application.

What else may cause problems?

There can be more reasons which determine that you are not able to open the PSD file (apart from the lack of the proper application installed).

First - the PSD file may be incorrectly associated with the application installed to support it. In this case, you need to change this association by yourself. To do this, right-click on the PSD file that you want to edit, click "Open with" and then select the program from the list that you have installed. After this operation, the problems with opening the PSD file should be solved.

Second - the file you want to open can simply be damaged. Then, the best solution is to find a new version of given file, or download it again from the same source as before (maybe for some reason in the previous session the download of the PSD file has not been completed and it cannot be opened properly).
