Photoshop PSD file plugin (newest version: 2.5.0)

Recommended Posts

I have an issue to install this plugin. I am running Paint.net 3.5.10. I cannot update to version 4 cause I am running Vista...

I downloaded the last version plugin, unzipped it and put the dll into C:\Program Files\Paint.NET\FileTypes

Then I relaunched Paint.net, opened my PDN file and make a save as... here, I have no *.psd option.

Is this normal?

 

thanks

Version 2.4.1 requires Paint.NET 4.0, you must use 2.4.0 with Paint.NET 3.5.x.

When I try editing graphical font in .PSD layer, it just edits name but it does not reflect changes on actualy picture. Is this plugin just for viewing and moving layers and does not allow changing of characters in fonts?

   In Paint.NET once you have completed typing text, it becomes an image. Edit the text in the future is not possible, only to type it again. It doesn't depend on a plug-in in any way.

@ReMake Thanks but you actually answered something different than I meant to ask. Now I know about uneditable text which you validated what I assumed.

 

But my question above was about .PSD file made in unknown to me software graphical editor. I got my hands on that file and have dozens of layers each for element that should be able to be changed. I select 1 element and I just want to change text there but it only changes name of that element.

 

Can I change that text in element or I will have to design it again? I remember usually I was able to change font and text but in my case can it be actual design/graphic?

No, in paint.NET you can't change the text, it should be created again. For this reason it is recommended to type the text in a separate layer with a transparent background.

Usually .PSD file created in PhotoShop.

Paint.NET does not have editable text layers.

 

The PSD plugin simply loads the file into Paint.NET.  Once it has been loaded in, it's treated no differently than any other Paint.NET document.

Just found this plugin and tested it on my 64 bit version. It doesn't seem to work at all.

I put the dll in the filetype folder then started Paint.net.

I wanted to open a PSD but that seemed invisible to paint.net ( not in the list of filetypes)

Next opened a PDN and wanted to save it as PSD but that was not possible either. The choice simply did not show in the list of filetypes. :(

Whoa, Boudewijn from the Netherlands... the Krita man himself?

 

I just purged my copy of the photoshop dll, and reinstalled it with no issues loading or opening .psd files.

 

Just to clarify, you've put the .dll file in paint.net's FileTypes directory, and you are using paint.net v4.x?

I downloaded the file and placed it in the flietypes folder but it is still the only filetype it doesn't register. Suggestions?

What version of Paint.NET are you using?

If you are using Paint.NET 3.5.11 the latest version of the of the PSD plugin is version 2.4.0, version 2.4.1 only works with Paint.NET 4.0 and later.

The download is a ZIP file.  "It" should not be placed into the FileTypes folder.
 
You need to look inside the ZIP file and then copy PhotoShop.dll into the FileTypes folder.

Hi I am having problems opening a PSD file using Paint.Net

 

I have copied the Photoshop.dll in the C:\Program Files\paint.net\FileTypes location but when I try to open a PSD file I get 'Not enough memory' message. I have a Core i7 surface pro with 8gig of memory, I would have thought this would be ok?

 

thanks

Eddy

Sorry if I'm bumping this, but when I follow the instal instructions, It doesn't work. I have no option for opening PSD files. my paint.net is 4.0.5.

 

I'm assuming you unzipped the file, placed the Photoshop.dll file into the File Type folder under Program Files, paint.net and restarted paint.net.

 

If you click File, Open, you should see this:

 

 

Photoshop (*.psd) should be a choice. If not, navigate to your .psd file and right click and select Open With, and choose Paint.Net or navigate to it and select it to make it the default program for opening that type of file.

 

Also, you should upgrade to PDN 4.0.6; that's the latest version.

 

Hope this helps!   :)

I followed those steps but it still doesn't work. I get an error when I try the "Open with ->" trick, and there's no PSD option in the dropdown menu.

@ Lekimoo

 

If you downloaded it from taoyue's link in the first post, the plugin should be version 2.4.1.

 

Right click on the .dll file (Photoshop.dll) and click 'Properties' and see if you need to Unblock the file at the bottom of the General Tab.

 

I hope this solves your problem!    :)
