Psd is default file format of Photoshop. Saving your files is really helpful in the saving your work where you left your work in Photoshop. However, a lot of people are not ready willing to spend the money for this expensive image editing photo suite. Whether your friend send you an important file, or you downloaded a PSD file from the Internet.
Today i am going to show you How to open psd files without using Photoshop ?
1. Use Paint.NET
Paint.NET is an image and photo manipulation application. Every feature and user interface element was designed to be immediately intuitive and quickly learnable without assistance. In order to handle multiple images easily, Paint.NET uses a tabbed document interface. The tabs display a live thumbnail of the image instead of a text description. This makes navigation very simple and fast.
To open a psd file, you need to add a Paint.NET PSD Plugin in Paint.NET.
2. Use GIMP :-
The GIMP is a multiplatform photo manipulation tool. GIMP is an acronym for GNU Image Manipulation Program. The GIMP is suitable for a variety of image manipulation tasks, including photo retouching, image composition, and image construction.
Similar to Paint.NET, GIMP can be extended by a wide array of plugins. However, for Photoshop PSD support, none of those are needed. GIMP supports the PSD file format out of the box, so you can jump right in after installing the application.
3. Use IrfanView
IrfanView is a very fast, small, compact and innovative Freeware (for non-commercial use) graphic viewer for Windows. it supports all major graphic formats, including BMP, DIB, JPEG, GIF, animated GIF, PNG, PCX, multipage TIFF, TGA, and more. With Irfan you can also open the psd file.
4. Use Google Drive :-
If your file is stored in Google Drive, you can directly see the preview of the file using Google Drive file viewer. Google Drive supports many image formats including PSD. If you only need to see the content of PSD file, you can store it on Google Drive and then see the preview of it.
5. Use PNG PSD Viewer :-
PNG PSD Viewer is a program with a name that perfectly describes its functionality – it allows you to view image files with the PNG and PSD format. It can be handled even by less experienced individuals.
The interface of the application is simplistic and intuitive. Image files can be imported via the file browser or “drag and drop” method.
