The CPT file extension is associated with Corel PHOTO-PAINT, a raster graphics editor developed by Corel. CPT files use Corel PHOTO-PAINT's own bitmap format to store edited digital photos. In other words, they are graphic files with distinct layers, alpha channels and transparency, all of which allow for future image editing. CPT is very similar to the TIFF format in terms of image quality and size, but the latter tends to be more popular and easier to handle using regular image viewers.
PSD is the default format for handling images using Adobe Photoshop and it represents a layered image file. PSDs allow later editing of available layers, including transparency, masks, alpha channels and texts, among others. After applying all desired editing, PSD files can be saved in Photoshop under more easily recognizable formats, such as JPEG or PNG, which are also smaller in size but flatten the image and hence do not allow later editing of layers.
The quick and simple way to handle your files is to get a quality piece of software, such as reaConverter. Although it is fast, this software is extremely efficient in managing a wide range of conversions. As you will soon realize, reaConverter will help you avoid spending countless hours trying to figure out how to convert CPTs. But at the same time, it will allow you to apply a wide range of editing options.
Start reaConverter and load all the .cpt files you intend to convert into .psd because, as opposed to most free online converters, reaConverter supports batch conversion. So you can save the time and energy you would lose with doing repetitive operations.
Select CPTs from a folder or by drag-and-dropping them directly into the reaConverter window.
Go to the Saving options tab and decide where you want to save new .psd files. You can also spend a few more moments to apply additional editing to the images prepared for conversion.
Then pick the PSD as output format. To help you do this, a series of buttons is conveniently placed at the bottom of the reaConverter window, so you can simply press on the one you need or click Plus button to add new options.
Then simply press the Start button and your conversion will begin in no time!Try Free Trial Version
