Is it possible to save Photoshop Touch documents so they can be read and edited by Photoshop CS4?

Apr 13, 2012 5:47 PM

I am considering the purchase of PS Touch, but need to save to Photoshop CS4. Is there a way to do that? I have not upgrade and don't intend to. If I can't save it for use in CS4, there's little need to purchase it. Thanks for any insights you can provide.

    You can save PS Touch projects in PSD format (which is Photoshop's file format). You then have to send your project from within PS Touch via email OR via Creative Cloud. You would then retrieve the PSD file and (of course) open it in Photoshop on the desktop.

    A couple of clarifications,Warunicorn is mostly correct, PS Touch has its own native file format (or project format) PSDX. Its not possible to open Photoshop Touch projects natively in Photoshop CS4, it would require Photoshop CS5 or later. You could transfer a project saved as either jpg or png but this is a flattened version without layers.
