Opening PDD files

Did your computer fail to open a PDD file? We explain what PDD files are and recommend software that we know can open or convert your PDD files.

What is a PDD file?

Files that contain the .pdd file extension are most commonly associated with the Adobe PhotoDeluxe image-editing software application. The .pdd file extension is given to the images that are created with this software program.

PDD files are compressed image files. The PDD file format allows for added space on the user's hard drive.

While Adobe PhotoDeluxe was the software to primarily use the PDD file format, that particular application was replaced with Adobe's Photoshop Elements in 2002.

The Medtronic Programmer software also uses the .pdd file suffix. These PDD files contain data files that are referenced by the Medtronic Programmer application.

Try a universal file viewer

In addition to the products listed above, I would suggest that you try a universal file viewer like Free File Viewer. It can open over 200 different types of files - and very likely yours too! Download Free File Viewer.
