What is a PSB file?
A .PSB file is a Photoshop Big Document Format file.
These files are created by Adobe Photoshop and are similar to the more common .PSD file format, but contain images in larger sizes. PSD has a size limit of 30,000 x 30,000 pixels.
PSB is designed to support images larger than .psd limits and can handle images of 300,000 x 300,000 pixels or 2 Gigabytes.
