View Full Version : Save for older version use! ASAP!

Hey guys,

Is there anyway you can save a PSD file for a version below it? I am using 7 and my school computer only has 6? How can I do this? An answer ASAP is best! Thankyou!:thumbsup:

Edit --> Preferences --> File Handling

Make sure "maximise compatability" is set to "always".

Mine was always set to that and it still did not work...? I will try a TIFF file! :) Thx for your time!

There are things that change from version to version, to make sure that PS 6 can read a version 7 file you have to make sure you aren't using anything new that isn't supported in 6.

I should also mention that the help files tell you what things are added and will not work in previous versions. Here is a link ( to a thread where I laid out where to find that info. This was a question about version 8 down to 7 but it should still work for you.
