How to Convert Adobe Xd File to Psd

The linking of Adobe Photoshop to other Adobe applications ensures that your process of transferring between software is smooth and hassle-free. You may find yourself that Experience Design does not have a sufficient toolbar that can satisfy your client, so going into Photoshop could help you to match what your client seeks.

  • Step 1a: Open File in Experience Design

    The first step you will need to do is to open your file in Adobe Experience Design. Once that has loaded up and is displayed, go to the ‘File’ menu and go all the way down to ‘Export’. Click it and select ‘Whole Canvas’. That way, the entire part of your file will be exported.

  • Step 2a: Open SVG in Photoshop

    Launch Photoshop and open the recently exported SVG file. The icon may resemble a web browser or a code editor, depending on the program you have chosen to open SVGs by default. Since most SVG files contain a lot of layers and may have a large size, it will take a while to import into Photoshop.

  • Step 2b: Open SVG in Illustrator

    The difference between Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Illustrator is that upon opening the SVG file, Photoshop is unable to recognize the layers of the XD file whereas Illustrator can. Some clients may want you to adjust layers so it is recommendable to do it in Illustrator as it can retain them.

  • Step 3: Export Illustator to Photoshop


    Illustrator should be used to export the file as a PSD document. Click on ‘File’ on the menu and select ‘Export’ then select .PSD in the file format section. Upon the window of ‘Photoshop Export options’ opening, you would want to choose ‘Write Layers’. It does not take long to export at a high resolution.
