Convert DJVU to PSD online, for free.
DjVu, pronounced déjà vu, is a file type that offers strong compression for high-resolution images. While similar to TIFF and PDF file types, DjVu offers much stronger compression than either of those. The most common use of DJVU files is to store scanned documents, which makes it more of a document file type than an image file. DjVu has the advantage of compressing files without sacrificing quality. However, the disadvantage is that special software is required to open DjVu.
A special software program is required to open a DjVu file. You must download this software to your computer, but fortunately, it’s free. Download the DjVu Browser Plug-in, which will enable you to open the files using any modern web browser. Often, DjVu files are converted to PDF, which is more familiar to most users.
For a list of programs that open DjVu files, visit DjVu.org. In addition, several programs are available for converting DjVu files. Cross-platform converters include DjVu to PDF. In addition, a page-specific converter is available that allows you to set the level of quality and compression. The name of this program is DjVu Converter.

Photoshop Document (PSD) is the default file type for Adobe Photoshop, a powerful and complex graphic design program. PSD can store an image along with a complex array of its corresponding layers, vector paths, objects, filters, and more, all in one file! PSD allows a user to make surgical edits on individual components of an image or a graphic design while retaining the file’s information in an accessible format. One drawback of PSD is that it can be large and unwieldy.
Adobe Photoshop is the most common program to open a PSD file. A free alternative to Adobe products is the GNU Image Manipulation Program, otherwise known as GIMP.
Due to the size of PSD files, they are not easy to transport, store, or share. To overcome this, PSD is often converted to a file format that can compress the data. Most often, the conversion is to JPEG, which offers lossy compression, or PNG, which offers lossless compression.
