Convert PEF to PSD online, for free.
Pentax Electronic File (PEF) is a raw image file format produced by Pentax digital cameras, which stores an unedited and uncompressed image. The benefit of working with a raw image is that it provides high-quality images, the ability to recover information, ease in making corrections, and many other advantages and benefits.
Ricoh Imaging Americas Corporation provides PENTAX PHOTO Laboratory software, which is the default for opening PEF. Another common program for viewing PEF is PENTAX PHOTO Browser. A non-Pentax program for opening PEF is Adobe Photoshop Lightroom.
Many other programs can open this file type successfully. For both Microsoft Windows and macOS, Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Photoshop Lightroom works well for opening and converting PEF. On Linux/Unix, darktable is open source, cross-platform, and free. PEF is usually converted to Adobe Digital Negative Raw Image (DNG), Tagged Image File Format (PEF to TIFF), JPG (PEF to JPEG), or Portable Network Graphics (PEF to PNG) file formats.

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.
