Convert PDF to photoshop PSD file using Photopea

Do you want to edit a PDF file, or use some of its graphics elsewhere? Let’s see, how to convert it into a PSD with photoshop layers, so we can work with it in Photoshop!

Online PDF Editor

If you try to open a PSD file in Photoshop, it will rasterize it: each page will be a bitmap, consisting only of pixels.

Today (the beginning of 2020), Photopea is the best tool to convert PDF documents to Photoshop files.

If you see a Welcome Screen, close it by pressing the Cross in the top right corner.

  • Go to to start a free online photo editor.
  • Open a PDF file from your computer: click File — Open (in the top left corner),
  • then find and select the PSD file (or use drag and drop).

You should see the graphics of the PDF file in front of you, one page next to another.

Photopea converted pages into artboards. The text was made into Type Layers (you can see its font name, font size, color etc.). Bitmaps became Smart Objects (you can save them in the original resolution). Vector graphics became Vector Shapes (with a correct fill, stroke style, gradients etc.).

Now, just click File — Save As PSD. And we are done!
