DescriptionA PSD file is known as a Photoshop document and was developed by Adobe in order for Graphic Designers to create layered images. PSD is the propiertry format that Adobe uses to allow these files to be saved in, they can then be either opened in various versions of Adobe Photoshop or if a user wants to send them to others they can be flattened to PNG, JPG or other more standard image formats. You can't however re-convert a JPG/PNG file that has been converted from a PSD back to a PSD file - it loses it's layers.
