Why convert .PSD files to .PNG files

PSD is a file extension associated with Photoshop documents, built-in Adobe Photoshop. While PSD files can be occasionally opened in other applications, they work most successfully when opened within Adobe Photoshop itself. PSDs are layered image files that store the individual layers used to construct the image, meaning they are editable within Photoshop itself. Designers often use PSDs for designing templates, digital painting, editing digital photos, and graphic design. Although editing PSD files is restricted to Photoshop and a small amount of other software, PSDs can be exported to and saved as a wide variety of other file types.

PNG - Portable Graphics Format - is a type of raster image file widely used across the internet. They are widely compatible with plenty of software applications. Unlike JPG files, PNG files have lossless data compression, which means they can be reduced in size without losing data and overall image quality. They also have the ability to read transparent backgrounds, making them great for logos and other icons that tend to be displayed over pictures. You’ll find that most online applications support PNGs, and they are commonly used for digital photographs as well as graphics.

PSD files are similar to PNG files by supporting transparent layers. The main difference is that PSD files are editable in Adobe Photoshop, whereas PNG files are flat, compressed images. So what if you have a PSD with a transparent background, but it’s too large to upload or share? Some PSD files can be nearly 3GB. Try converting a PSD to a PNG. This will create a PNG file, which will overall be much smaller but still retains the transparent background. This is a great file to then upload to a webpage or something similar.
