How To View PSD Files Without Installing Photoshop

Hello Friends,I hope you all are fine.
Have you ever sent a PSD file to a client and realized the second you hit the send button that you should have sent a flattened jpeg. It’s easy to forget that not everyone has Photoshop installed on their computer. Resending is an easy fix but what if you could view the file without needing Photoshop or having to save in another file format. What about using Windows Explorer? Follow these simple steps and no longer will you be with a PSD file and no way to view it.



01. Download psicon.dll from here:
02. Now copy the downloaded file to:
C:\Program Files\Common Files\Adobe\Shell
If this folder doesn’t exist create it.
03. Now open Notepad and copy below text in it and save it as Photoshop.reg:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\SharedDLLs]
“C:\\Program Files\\Common Files\\Adobe\\Shell\\psicon.dll”=dword:00000001
[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.psd\ShellEx]

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.psd\ShellEx\{BB2E617C-0920-11d1-9A0B-00C04FC2D6C1}]
@=”{0B6DC6EE-C4FD-11d1-819A-00C04FB69B4D}”

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{0B6DC6EE-C4FD-11d1-819A-00C04FB69B4D}]

@=”Photoshop Icon Handler”
[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{0B6DC6EE-C4FD-11d1-819A-00C04FB69B4D}\InProcServer32]
@=”C:\\Program Files\\Common Files\\Adobe\\Shell\\psicon.dll”

“ThreadingModel”=”Apartment”
OR Download this file and Save it:
Now execute .Reg file you have made or downloaded and press Yes two times. You have successfully completed the steps. Now you can view .psd files in windows explorer just like other Image files.
The Other Way:
I prefer this method more, because this method Supports cut, dcx, dds, mdl, mng, pcd, pcx, pic, pix, png, pnm/pbm/pgm/ppm, psd/pdd, psp, pxr, sgi/rgb, tif/tiff, tga/vda/icb/vst, wal and xpm images. you can view all of these files in Windows Explorer.
There comes a software named ThumbView Lite which does this job easily. This software is less than 0.5 megabyte! ThumbView supports an amazing 19 image types.

I'm amazed, I have to admit. Rarely do I come across a blog that'ѕ both equally
eduсatіvе аnd entertаinіng, and let me tell уοu, yοu've hit the nail on the head. The issue is an issue that not enough men and women are speaking intelligently about. I'm very hаppy that I came
across this іn mу hunt for somethіng rеgaгding
thіs.

You really make it appear so easy with your presentation but I in finding this matter to
be actually one thing which I feel I would by no means understand.
It seems too complex and extremely vast for me. I'm having a look
forward on your next submit, I will try to get the dangle
of it!
