Having trouble converting PSD to JPG format in Adobe Photoshop? I have a solution, using this method you can convert psd and psb files directly into jpg or tiff format using Adobe Photoshop itself, without any loss of quality and without using any scam conversion software.

If you start working on a new project in Adobe Photoshop, it will save your project as a PSD file and later you may want to convert it to JPG for better compatibility with other programs.

There are two ways to achieve this, both of which I have demonstrated here using Adobe Photoshop CS5.

  • Enter file output directories and the desired quality of output image, click Run to convert and you are Done!
  • The file you converted will be saved as a separate jpeg file in the destination folder you specified. (This option is available in the image processor dialogue box as 'Select Folder').
  • You can try additional filters from the preferences tab.
  • An option to convert psd to tiff is also available within the image processor.

Select 'Save for Web & Devices' in file drop down menu.
