How to open a Photoshop file and save it in another format?
« on: March 14, 2016, 12:12:25 PM »
I know this isnt a VB.NET category but does anyone know of a way to open a photoshop image (.psd) through vb.net code and work with it? Basically I just want to open the .psd file and save it as a .gif or .jpg
Thank you!

You might have better luck just using a commandline call to something like ImageMagick in your VB.NET program as opposed to handling the file natively in VB.net (might not even be feasible).

Welcome to DC, SilasSpencer!

I have not tested it, but they say they can do what I think you really are asking for:

Adobe Photoshop have a COM interface for Photoshop they refer to the "scripting plugin" you can control all of photoshops functionality through this interface.

Adobe supply documentation for using the COM interface, the Object Model and some scripting examples.

I am not geek of adobe Photoshop but simply you can save jpg file format to your desired file format

The first images show you how to load image into Adobe Photoshop, then you click Save as to save your file into desired file format.
