I have some 20 year old files which are have the .PDD extension - photo files.  I beleive they were generated by a very early version of Photoshop.  If I click on the file Photoshop is started up but the files won't open.  How do I open a file with a .PDD extension?  

 

Any help would be gratefully received.  Thanks.  Frank54

Seems like something that you might be able to open with an online converter.  There are a few I see on a search, but be wary of spyware, etc., especially if you'reon a PC.  Looks to be a PhotoDeluxe file - that has similar properties, paths, layers, text, etc. If i were trying to exhaust everything before trying a website service, I would attempt importing into Illustrator, Photoshop and all the other handling programs, maybe even Bridge.  Good luck!

Hi and thanks!  I persevered with Photoshop and managed to find a way of opening the "lost" files and then saving tham as .PSD  All sorted and I am very gretful.  Took a while as I couldn't convert multiple files in a block but all done now.
