J117 Posted October 18, 2020 Share Posted October 18, 2020 I have a folder of 100+ .PDN files from an artist that I need to use for a project, but unfortunately my workflow doesn't support .PDN, only .PSD/.PSB and multilayer .TIF. I've done a lot of searching already but can't seem to find a way to easily batch-convert these .PDN files into another layered format. - IrfanView can open .PSD files and convert .PDN to JPG/PNG/etc., but can't convert PDN (or anything else) to .PSD - IrfanView can also convert to TIFF, but the filesize is hugely inflated (~30x), and when I tried loading the converted file in Krita I got a glitchy result (blank canvas, even though the layer thumbnails are visible in the sidebar and can be copied into a new canvas), so not sure how usable that is. - XnConvert can convert stuff to .PSD, but it can't recognize .PDN - Paint.net itself can load .PDN (duh) and save them as .PSD via a plugin, but has no batch-convert support, so you have to load and re-save one at a time. Photoshop is one of the most common layered image formats around, and plenty of people use Paint.NET too. Is there really no tool or plugin out there that can batch-convert Paint.NET files into .PSD (or any other format that preserves the layer info)?
