Opening PSF files

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

What is a PSF file?

PSF is an acronym for Proof Setup File. Files that contain the .psf file extension usually store the color settings that are used by the Adobe Photoshop application. These files allow a user to see accurate previews of how an image will look once it has been printed on paper.

The .psf file extension is also used for Portable Sound Format files. These files are taken directly from video games that are used on a variety of gaming consoles. These PSF files are similar in nature to WAV and MP3 files, but the PSF file format allows for a tighter compression method which takes up less space on a user's hard drive.

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.
