.psd File Dilemma ...

Postby CorpRebel » Mon Apr 04, 2005 9:08 pm

Hi All!

I have some free templates that were done in PhotoShop (.psd) but I don't have PS to make mods. I already have PaintShop Pro but that won't do it. But I can't justify splurging for PhotoShop cuz I rarely do any graphics work. PSP does what I need to do otherwise.

Just wondering if there was anything else out there that could edit a .psd file that was available. Probably not, though ... :roll:

NOT a huge deal. Thought I'd ask anyway before I delete them! :lol:

Thanx!

Well - I do happen to have Photoshop and you're welcome to shuttle the files along to me with clear instructions for the modifications (no major overhauls though).

Now, in that same vein, Adobe does offer a 30 day try out of Photoshop. Why not download Photoshop for the period of time just to make the necessary modifications yourself?

Hi Teli!

Thanks for the generous offer! :mrgreen:

I'm gonna try your suggestion below first ... If I "botch it up" I'll come running! :lol:

Excellent suggestion ... Definitely should have thought about that angle.

THANX!!!

Hi Rick,

I use PhotoImpact. You can buy it for $49. There is a free trial offer too. It works fine with PSD files.

You can also use the GIMP to edit PSD files. GIMP is free open source software. Now it's not perfect since Adobe keeps their code secret but you should be able to edit the PSD file then save it as something else.

Gimp is your best choice if you want free software.

If it's just a one time thing, I would suggest getting the 30day Photoshop free trial or, you can find older versions of photoshop 5 or 6 on ebayfor affordable prices.
