PSD is the native format of Photoshop. PSD files contain masks, colors, text; they support , CMYK, grayscale, monochrome, duotone and multichannel modes for the colors. The PSD files tend to be quite large and are not suitable for the Internet use. Since it’s a Photoshop format there are some limitations and inconveniences, such as viewing these files is limited to specific software. Printing PSD files may also cause difficulties. And last but not least PSD is not a portable format, so if you indent to use your PSD files in projects involving team work and collaboration it’s better to convert your PSD files to PDF. Portability is the main advantage of PDF over PSD. No matter what device you use the file will look exactly the same, plus the PDF files are protected from being altered by the third parties. What you see on the screen is exactly what you will get on the paper – so printing PDF files is much more convenient. Unless your PSD file contains a lot of layers you would like to preserve we advise you to convert your PSD images to PDF.
