Free image viewer for PSD files
PSD Viewer is a free program that allows users to view PSD files – Photoshop Documents ending with the .PSD extension. The program also allows users to rotate and resize these images as well as convert and save them using common image formats.
Viewing and converting PSD files
Adobe Photoshop is the world’s most widely used image editing program; image files are increasingly stored in this lossless format due to its ability to store additional information, such as layers, masks and colour profiles. Photoshop’s popularity comes with a hefty price tag, so many are left searching for a simple – and free – way to view PSD files. That’s where PSD Viewer comes in. Interacting with the program involves opening a PSD file in the file browser or just dragging and dropping it directly onto the viewer. From there, users can view, zoom, resize and rotate the image or convert and save it in a number of common file formats. Given its focused functionality, the program’s user interface is as simple and intuitive as one would expect, but if you do need help, the developer provides a basic tutorial.
Lives up to its name
Overall, PSD Viewer is easy to use and delivers exactly what its name suggests. However, if you’re looking to do extensive editing, you’ll need to buy Photoshop or download a free alternative that can handle PSD files.
