Layered PSD to editable PDF


#1

Is there a way to export a layered .psd file to a .pdf one that can be edited the same as in Photoshop ?


#2

I don’t think PDF is capable to reserve the layer data structure. What I just know about that feature is, it can just output the file as PDF but then they can’t be edited like PSDs.

Yes, I knew that, thanks anyway Raincutter! I don’t know why people use Acrobat for creating & editing files.

I knew that u knew that. Same question here. Why acrobat? I don’t even use it anymore for reading e-books.

What files do people create using acrobat?

I only use acrobat (or LiveCycle) for the following:

• Creating pdf files from .doc/.docx files.

• Compiling Portfolios of .pdf files.

• Creating forms for easy distribution (most people have Acrobat Reader).

I’d be interested to see if there are any other application of acrobat. :slight_smile:

Actually IBIB you can save a PSD as a PDF and still mantain editing capabilities (layers structure).

I can do this with CS3.

I’ve tried exporting a layered .psd file into a .pdf and maintaining the layers structure. But when I opened it with Acrobat Pro I couldn’t edit a single thing.

One of my future clients ( I hope ) contacted me with this problem - he wants to edit a Photoshop designed flyer but with Acrobat Pro - because its much easier ( in his opinion ) - So imma be creating a PSD file and apply the text & photos in Acrobat Pro. I hope we just settle on a payment before I start working and it will worth the extra time spent.

any solutions yet? interested…

Does LiveCycle come with Acrobat (I’ve had it for so long I cannot remember)?

If it does then use that to edit the .pdf document? :slight_smile:

it would be really good if you could show us how to do that. It can help many people here.

When you save your PSD file into some other type of file just scroll up/down 'till you see Photoshop PDF and after check a little box that says “maintain layer structure” or something like that.

thnx ibib. Since I don’t do much work in PDF right now, didn’t knew that.


#13

@ibib … i think you need indesign for that, not acrobat …
