What are SPD files and how to open them
Are you having problems opening a SPD file or are you simply curious about its contents? We're here to explain the properties of these files and provide you with software that can open or handle your SPD files.
What is a SPD file?
SPD files have multiple uses, and Adobe PostScript Configuration is one of them. Read more about the other uses further down the page.
Adobe PostScript Configuration File
The SPD file format was created by Adobe Systems as a configuration file type for their PostScript products. Also called Adobe PostScript printer mini driver files, these .spd files contain settings and instructions that are used by Adobe PostScript printers.
The configuration options stored in these SPD files are related to the image, color, text and graphics manipulation features that are available in Adobe PostScript printers. These .spd files are mainly used by the Adobe Creative Suite software, which is a set of programs used for photo editing, image design and multimedia content authoring purposes.
Only the Adobe PostScript printer and other related tools in Adobe Creative Suite should use these .spd files. To ensure that your Adobe PostScript products and Adobe Creative Suite can continue to run properly, it's recommended to leave these .spd files alone.
You usually do not need to edit or view these files, as they only contain information usable by the software program that uses them.
