Converting DWG to PSD

DWG (which stands for "Drawing") is a proprietary format of AutoCAD, a program widely used for creating engineering and architectural projects. The format is also a default extension used by several other computer-aided design (CAD) pieces of software, including IntelliCAD, Caddie or DraftSight. DWG files contain complex design structures including several layers, which can be 2-dimensional or 3-dimensional.

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.

So, how to change DWG into PSD?

The quick and simple way to handle your files is to get a quality piece of software, such as reaConverter.

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.
