File extension .PSF
|ArcSoft PhotoStudio File Image Format
The PSF file extension is used to create and store presets in Adobe Photoshop. It contains proof information such as color profile and profile settings for a current file. This file type helps in consistent color management from document to document in Photoshop. For example, if a shop prints multiple files in one time, it is easier to set the proofing options for all files in one PSF file. It allows users to save these changes and use them again and again.
What are PSF Files?
A PSF file can store color space, dot gain, gray balance values, as well as working space and color space options. The format is used to save the profile settings and informations per document in Photoshop. It ensures a uniform proofing output across various documents regardless of size or resolution. Aside from Adobe Photoshop, users can also view the contents of a PSF file with certain other programs that are compatible with its format. This includes free applications like GIMP and ImageMagick.

After installing the required software, the operating system will usually automatically associate an unknown file type (in this case .PSF) with the new application. If this does not happen, we can help the system a bit by selecting the software for it, which it should always use to open files with the .PSF extension.
When choosing the software we can select the system to use this software every time.
Using it for the first time it is good to check whether the .PSF file opened in the application can be read by us and opens in a way that allows us to use it. If everything is in order, select this option the next time you open a file with the .PSF extension. However, if the file has not opened correctly, we have to look for a different software, with which we can open files with the .PSF extension. Select a different software from our list and install it on your computer. After the software is installed, repeat inspection openings of a .PSF file. Sometimes you have to repeat the operation several times.
If none of the programs listed by us to work with the .PSF file has not meet your expectations, you can try searching other websites. But remember to avoid downloading programs "that can open any file". These applications not only have very limited functionality, but may also expose you to expense tens of dollars when purchasing a license.
In the vast majority of cases you will find the program dedicated to support the .PSF file, or any other file format. In addition, there is a chance that it will be a free program, and its functionality (concerning the .PSF file) will be extended to the maximum.
It is also good to check
- if the .PSF file has no errors
- or if it has been copied (or downloaded by the browser) thoroughly
