Pros:

  • Utilize all of Photoshop's features (retain adjustment layers, masks, shapes, clipping paths, layer styles, blending modes, smart objects).
  • Tight integration between Adobe products, you can directly import a Photoshop file into Illustrator, InDesign, etc.
  • Open saved file with layers.
  • Useful if you need to maintain transparency.
  • You can save 16-bits-per-channel and high dynamic range (HDR) 32-bits-per-channel images as PSD files.

Cons:

  • Large file size.
  • PSD is proprietary to Adobe. So it is not widely supported by other apps like TIFF is.
