PSB to PSD?

Copied

I have almost 100 psb files. they are slightly under 2 GB and have various content (eg different kind of layers and SmartObjects). Problem I have: Some customers report not being able to open those files. They need psds instead. (I don't know what programs they are using...)

Is there an easy way to batch convert my psbs to psds? ... I assume just renaming the file extansion won't help? (:

Thanks!

You can batch convert with an action. PSD is limited to 30K pixels on the longest canvas edge, while PSB supports 300K.

You could also try the built-in Image Processor script, which offers PSD and the ability to resize to fit 30,000 px on the width and height. No need for an action or batch!

 

EDIT: The resize isn't conditional, so perhaps best to do the resize manually. It would be simple enough to script this so that only images greater than 30K on either side are reized, leaving 30K or less as is.

Perhaps this script will help:
