You need to download This File type plug in to open and edit PSD files, remember to put the dll into your file types folder in paint.net.

 

 

How to install the plugin http://psdplugin.codeplex.com/

  1. Close Paint.NET.
  2. Open the ZIP file, and then copy PhotoShop.dll to: C:\Program Files\Paint.NET\FileTypes
  3. Restart Paint.NET, which will automatically detect the PSD filetype plugin. 

 

I cannot find where i am instructed to put file: PhotoShop.dll into which is file: C:\Program Files\Paint.NET\FileTypes.

i have never been through this process. when i download i only need to click on "run", "yes", "accept", etc. i might need to restart comp. the process is over at that point. 

will u help me? please and thk u

First click the purple download button on the top right of the page.  (in the link you have provided)
Then once downloaded unzip (Right Click > Extract All)
Then copy the contents of your extracted folder to Paint.net \ FileTypes folder (As instructed at step #2 on the download page)

 

You can then open paint.net and edit / save psd files. 

 

Hope this is of help :)

Step #2 Instructs you what to do with the dll. There is a folder in  Program files \ Paint.net  called File Types Copy the dll into there then restart paint.net.

Open your file explorer and have a look.  Is the file Photoshop.dll in the Paint.NET/Effects folder?

You're confusing the dll with a psd image file.

 

Download the dll file and unzip it.  Place the unzipped dll file in your C:\Program Files\Paint.NET\FileTypes folder.

Restart Paint.NET.  This is required to correctly load the plugin.

 

Now go to File > Open and navigate your way to your sample *.psd file.  If the plugin is loaded correctly the file should open in Paint.NET.

i put PhotoShop.dll into C:\Program Files\Paint.NET\FileTypes..

after i did this i was presented with "continue" option. so it must have been done right. 

is it possible to confirm plugin was loaded properly or would it b easier to try and open the psd file i want. 

 

btw the psd i want to open is: Tee_Template_1200x1200.psd from Threadless.com.

https://www.threadless.com/threadless/submission-kit/

 

the reason i tried to open psd via shortcut is the instructor n tutorial does so.

if u would like to see it :55 -

 

some help on how to open psd would b very much appreciated?

Please & thank u

You can either do as instructed by others above - Open Paint.net then locate the psd you wish to open. Or you can right click on the psd file, scroll to "open with" and find paint.net among your programs, then check use as default.

 

By default paint.net will not open a psd file unless paint.net is instructed to do so. 

 

I have just downloaded and opened the psd file with no problems.

The File Types folder name must be one word, e.g. FileTypes.
