Best Online PSD to JPG and PNG Tools

Need to open a PSD file but don’t have Photoshop? No problem! Whether you’re working with a designer and need to view a proof, or you want to quickly and easily convert artwork to display on your website, there are a number of free and easy-to-use online tools that will allow you to transform PSD files into JPGs or PNGs. A PSD is a Photoshop Document file – specially formatted so that it can be reopened in an editable state so a designer can pick right up where they left off and continue editing the image or design. The issue with PSDs is that, unlike JPGs and PNGs, which can be opened in almost any image editor or viewer, Photoshop Document files are not open format, and need to be opened or edited in a supported program. If you only need to open or view these types of files once in a while, an Adobe Creative Cloud subscription may not be worth the investment – which is why we’ve tested 4 FREE online (no software downloads required) tools to help you convert a PSD to a JPG or PNG. ..

INFOGRAPHIC: WooCommerce vs Magento vs Shopify

WooCommerce, Magento, and Shopify are three of the most popular e-commerce solutions in the market. When put together, they collectively run more than 2.5M online stores! There’s a very good reason why those three are the leaders. They’re functional, scalable, offer some nice designs, and, most importantly, make it really easy for people to launch their own e-commerce stores, even if they’ve had no prior website-building experience. That being said, these platforms are also very different in the way they’re structured, how you can get started with each, and what sort of user and project they’re best suited for. We created a number of e-commerce resources in the past, but, so far, none of them looked into the specific differences between WooCommerce vs Magento vs Shopify in a visual, easy to grasp way. And when it comes to “visual” and “easy to grasp,” an infographic is pretty much the best way to kill these two birds with one stone. Long story short, what we have for you today is ..
