Two Ways to Convert PSD and PSB to JPG

There are two ways to achieve this conversion:

  1. The Image Processor Method.
  2. The Save for Web & Devices Method.

Both of which are demonstrated below using Adobe Photoshop CS5.

Using these methods, 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 online conversion tool.

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 later for better compatibility with other programs.

The Image Processor Method - Convert to Jpg or Tiff

This method uses the image processor of the Photoshop to convert to jpg or tiff images with adjustable quality.

  • First you need to flatten all the layers of your project. For this, open layers drop down menu and select flatten image as shown in the picture below.

Click on 'Flatten Image' in the Layers drop down menu.
Click on 'Flatten Image' in the Layers drop down menu.

  • The Image Processor dialogue box should open as pictured below.
  • Enter file output directory or select 'save in same location'.
  • Select the desired quality of output image, maximum quality available is 12. Next, 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 or in the same folder as the psd file, depending on the option you selected.
  • You can try additional filters from the preferences tab.
  • An option to convert psd to tiff is also available within the image processor. Use this when you might want to work on the image in feature because tiff can preserve image quality after multiple edits and saving cycles.
