psd file

Hi, What software can I use to edit a psd file. I have windows xp paint and Jasc paint shop pro 7, neither of which will open them. Please help

Adobe Photoshop - very expensive.

Paint Shop pro (later versions) will open it, and so should this click here (free)
You could then save it as something else and use PSP.

PSD is a file created in Photoshop, I don't have one at the moment, but are you sure PSP7 wont open it, there is an entry for psd in the Open dialog box of PSP7.

Paint shop is saying an undefined error 565 has occured and wont open it

May depend on the age of the psd. If a new file it may have problems. That's why I suggested a later version. Get hold of the 30 day trial to see if it works.

I have Photoshop and am able to open a psd picture without problem in Paint Shop Pro 7.

Make sure that you have this format associated with PSP7. To do this:

Open PSP 7, click on file, select preferences, choose file format associations and make sure you have a tick against the entry Photoshop (*.psd). Then click OK.

Nope still doesnt work, annoying because I can preview it but not open it

If that does not work, perhaps the psd file is corrupted.

My version of Photoshop is quite recent, (CR2)

What programme are you previewing it in?.

PSD is an uncompressed, unflattened file format, allowing many different elements, layers etc. to be re-manipulated/edited when the file is re-opened later. Depending on how complex the image make-up is, you wont be able to open it without Photoshop, as ventanas has said already.

I have Photoshop 7 and PSP 7.

I have only got 5 psd files on my PC.

Photoshop will open all 5 but PSP will only open 1 of them. The other 4 PSP reports "Not a valid psd file" and won't open them, strange that.
