psd A .psd extension file is an image file created with the help of Adobe Photoshop. PSD is the default extension used for saving a Photoshop Image which can have either a single or multiple layers which can be worked individually even after having saved the file. The file can also be saved in other formats like .jpg, .tiff, .gif or other imaging formats but if a user wants to edit the individual layers later, it is necessary to save the .psd file without overwriting it while converting it to another format. Converting a .psd extension file into an image file in another format flattens the image so that it can be viewed as a regular image. The images created using this extension are of a very high resolution and the quality in terms of clarity is extremely good as compared to other commonly used image formats like .jpg, .png or .bmp.
hdr A .hdr extension file is a High Dynamic Range image format that is also known as HDRI or a Radiance HDR format. A raster image or a digital photo with dark shadows or washed out areas can be rectified using HDRsoft to enhance the color and improve the brightness level. The Multiple pictures having different exposures can also be combined to create one image with an even distribution of color with the HDR software. As compared to standard digital imaging or photographic techniques, HDR imaging uses a high technology to improve the picture quality of an image by increasing its clarity, brightness and luminosity.
