Photoshop PSD file plugin (newest version: 2.5.0)

Recommended Posts

Codeplex has finally taken action, and files can now be downloaded successfully on Chrome and Firefox.

 

Due to the quick reporting from users, the PSD Plugin was one of the first projects on Codeplex to workaround the problem.  I also have reason to believe that the operators of Codeplex took action based directly on my recommendations.  Therefore, every project on Codeplex owes a debt of gratitude to the users of the PSD Plugin.  Thank you!

Getting an error as follows:

System.OutOfMemoryException: Insufficient memory to continue the execution of the program.
   at PaintDotNet.Data.PhotoshopFileType.PsdLoad.CheckSufficientMemory(PsdFile psdFile)
   at PhotoshopFile.PsdFile.LoadLayers(PsdBinaryReader reader, Boolean hasHeader)
   at PhotoshopFile.PsdFile.LoadLayerAndMaskInfo(PsdBinaryReader reader)
   at PhotoshopFile.PsdFile.Load(Stream stream, LoadContext loadContext)
   at PaintDotNet.Data.PhotoshopFileType.PsdLoad.Load(Stream input)
   at PaintDotNet.FileType.Load(Stream input) in D:\src\pdn\src\Data\FileType.cs:line 496
   at PaintDotNet.Functional.Func.Eval[T1,TRet](Func`2 f, T1 arg1) in D:\src\pdn\src\Base\Functional\Func.cs:line 158

PSD file is 15.4 MB consisting of several layers of 3,892 x 3528, but I am pretty sure it is all vector layers (not that I'm certain that would make a difference)

So, that would be 164,771,712 bytes required, right guise?

 

Well, I have 24GB of memory. I don't think I am likely to run out.

So, I assume it's a limitation in the plug-in not Paint.Net

Please help.

Spoiler

Looks like I'll be forced to use that diabolical monster, GIMP. Yeeeech!

The memory issue is the least of your problems. The plugin and paint.net only supports raster images, not vector images.

Yip, that'll do it. I wish that had been made a little clearer in the ... what? Even Paint.Net doesn't do vector images?!

UGH! Alright, so vomitolicious gimp it is

Thanks for your help, mate

It would be 164,771,712 bytes if the file has one layer.

 

PSD files can contain thousands of layers, so that file could require hundreds of GB of memory to load into Paint.NET.

 

The problem is that Photoshop has partial layers and Paint.NET doesn't.  Because layers are cheap in Photoshop, graphic designers can use layers like candy.  They'll create a new layer for a 10x10 image element.  When the file is loaded into Paint.NET, that 10x10 layer turns into a full 3892 x 3528 layer.

Hi there @Charm Alas, your screen shot is not showing up.  You need to copy the IMG or the URL code and paste.

 

Are you quite sure that when you downloaded the Plugin that you :

 

"copy PhotoShop.dll to: C:\Program Files\paint.net\FileTypes"    and not to Effects!

Hello and Welcome to PDN :D.

 

I have just tested this download and it is working fine for me.  You don't have Norton by any chance?  It is notorious for denying access.

Is it just the UAC Prompt for permission escalation? Do you have admin permissions on your local Windows account?

I just wanted to pass by and say: Thank you Taojue!

Your plugin is great and has always been a boon to my work when cross-editing animations with Gimp, Paint.NET and Genetica 4.

Like seriously, thanks a lot and please keep up the great work!

I've definitely had it working before but not on this PC.  I just want to save a PDN file with layers as something I can open in another editor (Affinity Designer).

 

Windows 7 Enterprise 64-bit

Paint.Net 4.0.19

PSD Plugin 2.5.0

 

I've copied the DLL to the filetypes folder but Photoshop PSD files aren't listed when opening or saving files.

We need some more information to diagnose this problem.

 

Please post screenshots of Windows Explorer, opened to the following directories.  Use Detail mode, and maximize the window so we can see filesize and timestamp.

  • C:\Program Files\paint.net
  • C:\Program Files\paint.net\Effects
  • C:\Program Files\paint.net\FileTypes

On Windows Server 2008 R2 (64-bit) the plugin dll is not loading for me. I've tried rebooting, redownloading, restarting multiple times. Any idea how to debug this? PSD Plugin version is 2.5.0, Paint.NET version is 4.0.21.

 

I added some screenshots of my folder contents.

It looks like you have installed the Megalo plugin pack.

You should delete the contents of your Effects and FileTypes folders and run a virus scan, see the following thread for more information.

 

Then you can reinstall the plugin from the link in the first post of this thread.

Version 2.5.0 seems to work fine with paint.net v4.0.21.  What issue are you seeing?

This is not a common error message.  Please send me the PSD file so I can investigate the problem further.  Use the email address at the top of the PSD Plugin web page: https://www.psdplugin.com/

 

If the file is larger than about 20 MB, please upload it to OneDrive instead and share it with me using that email address.

There is not enough information yet to diagnose the problem.
