PSD Files: Quick Preview without opening Photoshop?


Question

I have a lot of PSD files in many random directories. Sometime I need to view many files quickly without loading into Photoshop.

I am looking for a lightweight PSD viewer application, is there any?

Accepted Answer

You didn't state OS, so I am assuming Windows in my answer.

If you prefer to view them in Explorer etc. you can install this little (free) utility that will display thumbnails for PSD and a bunch of other formats. It's for Win XP, win 7 (32/64 bit):

For the Mac OS, just hit the space bar with the file highlighted.

You can also use Preview on the Mac to view .psd files.

And if you have Photoshop, you have Bridge. You could easily view (very large) thumbnails of everything in Bridge.
