ComparePSD - the first Adobe Photoshop files comparison tool - is now free of charge!

Published January 21st, 2010 by Anatoly

We have decided to make our small and useful utility ComparePSD freeware. You can now download it for free on the ComparePSD page

What is ComparePSD?

ComparePSD is a utility for graphic designers that compares 2 Adobe PSD files layer-by-layer, effect-by-effect and highlights the differences.

Key features:

  • ComparePSD compares PSD files layer-by-layer
  • ComparePSD handles layers styles (effects), styles attributes and layers visibility flags
  • ComparePSD provides a scaled view of the files that helps you to find differences easier
  • ComparePSD allows you to select the files in Windows Explorer by right-clicking on them

Currently ComparePSD is only available for Windows. We plan to release a Mac OS version later.

Why is it free?

We used to sell ComparePSD for $29.95, but now we are making it completely free.

We are doing this because we want to concentrate on our core product Timeline (http://pixelnovel.com/timeline)- the Subversion plug-in for Photoshop, and we hope that making ComparePSD free will attract a lot of relevant visitors to our website and help us promote the main product.
