Right now, there is no way to bring .psds into Adobe Sketch and have them remain editable files. They are instead brought into photo layers really only in a reference capacity. We do get this request often (also for Adobe Draw with .ai files); i just have no information about whether, or when, the ability to take files back and forth will be incorporated into the app.
About keeping the original size of the image... images brought into the app automatically resize to the export dimensions of the art (which is 2048 x 1536); I suspect that might change when we offer the ability to change/customize the canvas size... but that's down the road a bit.
I'm not entirely sure I'm understanding your question about Undo/Redo. Can you give me a bit more detail about what you're looking for?
Thanks for posting. I'll share all of your comments with the product team.
Hi Sue! I really appreciate the thorough and honest answer!
It's a shame because I feel like that feature would be REALLY useful and popular with users. I honestly wouldn't even mind paying something reasonable for that sort of capability. It would just be so handy to take my work away from home without having to lug my whole laptop away.
Just to double check, the dimensions you gave for export "2048 x 15360" is correct? (The length seems a bit long to me!)
As for the undo/ redo, basically I sometimes find it difficult to swipe with both fingers backwards in the app to Undo (and usually ends up giving me a paint-stroke or two and having to undo even more..) and I'm unsure if it's even possible to redo in the app? I've tried swiping forward but nothing happens.. unless I am just really rubbish at swiping in general ..
Anyways, would you ever end up having visible UI buttons somewhere in the app that I can just tap on the icons if I wanted to redo or undo when I'm in the app?
If you would like, I don't mind doing a small UI mockup of what I mean to make this clearer!
Also, while I'm asking, do you happen to know how much the history goes back in a Sketch file? (Like how many "undos" do I have up to in the app?)
Thanks again for your quick and thoughtful answer and I hope to hear again soon!

15360... a typo. I fixed it so it wouldn't confuse anyone else. Thanks for catching it; I meant to type 1536.
I know, a lot of people would really like it. Like most things, there are a lot of things for the product team to consider before that functionality will be brought to the app. But, it is being discussed, so it's certainly not out of the question. I just have no idea when (or really even if) it will happen. I wish I had more information for you.
I thought that's what you meant about Undo/Redo but I wanted to make sure before answering. There is an Undo icon (I've pasted a screenshot below), and if you press-and-hold on it, the Redo icon will appear. There's also, in that same menu a timeline icon where you can scroll back 50 steps in your drawing (please be very careful with extensive undos and the timeline feature. If you make a mark on the screen after having gone on the timeline it will override all of your work. You will get a warning that you are about to delete all of your strokes, but a lot of people ignore the alert and lose their work. So be careful.)
I totally understand! (I'm a game developer myself, so I know how much we consider feedback but also understand it needs to be discussed with other members of the team, production, and dev managers for bigger tasks to get any proper thought for implementation!) It's also really nice to know that it's at least being thought about!
Glad I could catch that typo for anyone else
Oh gosh, I must be really blind! My apologies that I guess I didn't even notice that undo button in the UI! I was probably thinking it was a back button so silly me! Thanks for confirming this for me!
Thank you for being so helpful! You really rock
You're welcome Alintheayoh.
I'm glad it's what you needed. (Sometimes I'm not sure I'm understanding correctly when the answer is something so simple.)
