I was wondering if there was an easy way to convert Sketch files to a layered Photoshop file? Sketch exports tiffs, png and jpg but they are all flattened. Anyone else have to do this? Any suggestions other than having to rebuild everything in Photoshop?

I did find the answer and that would be export all Sketch files to a PDF. Open the PDF in Illustrator and export that into a PSD layered document. Open up the PSD in Photoshop and go through all layers to make sure what is of value and what isn't. This method is better than recreating it all from scratch in Photoshop.

Thank you so much for this!

For anyone else looking for a sketch>photoshop conversion - this worked fine for me and kept all the folders/naming conventions - the only thing I had to tweak was some of the text boxes had cropped the text slightly but clicking into it the text box solved that.
