How you can Install the Paint.Net PSD Plugin?
Paint.Net will save your cost of purchasing the Adobe photosop image editor. PDS format is commonly used extension for standard image. By Default, Paint.net does not support the extension. First , you need install the Paint.NET PSD Plugin was developed.
This is a Paint.NET plugin for loading and saving Photoshop .PSD files.


Features of PSD Plugin of Paint.net

  • Layers
  • Masks (loading only)
  • RAW or RLE compressed files (loading only)
  • The following color modes are supported for loading an image
    • Gray scale
    • Indexed
    • 32 Bit-RGBA
    • CMYK (lossy conversation)
    • Multichannel CMY (lossy conversation)
    • Duotone (as gray scale)
    • Lab (lossy conversation)
    • For saving an image, only 32-Bit RGBA is supported

The plug-in is currently not very efficient in memory usage. Also be careful of PSD files with lots of small layers. In Photoshop, a layer can have different dimensions than the image. When loaded into Paint.NET, all layers get the same dimensions as the image, which can be very memory-intensive.

Note: Netframe version 3.5 higher needed for installation, supported in Window 7 , XP, Vista
