Review PSD Viewer
Have you been sent a file in PSD, the Adobe Photoshop format, and as you don't have this application on your computer, you can't view it? You must know that some platforms try to solve your problems in these cases. Although there are several efficient ones, probably one of the easiest is PSD Viewer, thanks to which you can open all these contents without any limitations.
The truth is that Photoshop is undoubtedly the leading image editing service nowadays, used by a considerable number of users all over the world. However, if we do not have it installed on our PC and are sent a file in PSD format, the only possible alternative seems to be to download it to the equipment in question. Thanks to PSD Viewer, this will not be necessary since you can visualize the image without any inconvenience.
With PSD Viewer, you can open any file that has been made with Photoshop. Although it is not a utility that offers too many other functions, it fulfills its central premise without any problems. Some of the tasks you will be able to carry out beyond the visualization of the images have to do with their rotation, zooming in certain parts, or modifying their size.
In this sense, we can say that PSD Viewer works similarly to WindowsImage Viewer , even though it is specially adapted to all the contents that have been developed using Photoshop. In this sense, it is possible that, at times, you may feel that it is a program that falls a little short of its potential, or at least that is what we felt when we tried it out.
The most beautiful thing about PSD Viewer is that we can also use it as a converter since although we can only open files of type PSD and others such as AI and EPS, the options for exporting them are more attractive. So, when you have installed this application on your computer, you will not need a converter compatible with Photoshop files.
As you can see, this application does not work only with Photoshop. Still, it is also compatible with the images we have modified using Adobe Illustrator, so its usefulness is double to call it that way. It is clear that not as many users use Illustrator as Photoshop, but having software at hand that handles both contents is a relief.
Fortunately, it works with the most popular formats, among which we can mention, for example, TIFF, GIF, BMP, PNG, or JPG, so in general, there is no compatibility problem. This support for exporting the original Photoshop images in many of the most common formats these days is undoubtedly one of its best features.
However, one error that we have found, and that seems a bit unforgivable, to be honest, is that after doing any minimal editing on top of the images, it does not allow us to save them again in the original format PSD. This does not make much sense and forces us to look for another alternative if we want to edit them but not save them in the traditional formats of images that we have discussed in the previous paragraph.
The user interface of PSD Viewer, meanwhile, is a true reflection of what the program itself is since, although it is straightforward to use, it is also a consequence of the very few options available to users. Unfortunately, we find that the simplicity of use, in this case, is not due to the excellent work in terms of design but rather to the little it has to give us beyond the basics.
If we had to mention the main strong points of PSD Viewer, we would have to talk without any doubt about its compatibility with many of the most powerful editing programs, such as Photoshop or Illustrator. To that, we must add that it allows us to save the images in any famous format and modify their size or rotate them.
Of course, there are also some issues with PSD Viewer that we didn't like, such as the fact that it doesn't allow us to see the different layers of the image, nor does it allow us to save the files in the original PSD format once we have modified them, something quite profound. Then, in general, as we mentioned before, we have felt this tool was not as well used as it could have been.
In conclusion, we can say that PSD Viewer is the ideal tool if you only intend to see the content of a file made in Photoshop or convert it to another format, although it doesn't offer much more than that. Anyway, it is a utility that installs in seconds and that could get you out of trouble without too much difficulty, so we believe that, in many cases, it can be helpful.
