I have a PSD file that I converted to a jpeg image for a Facebook cover. No problems so far. Looks right.

 

I needed to change the phone/name in this file sent to me. I don't have photoshop nor do I use it, so I opened the file in notepad++. Made changes then saved, however... when I go back to converting the file to jpeg, the image doesn't look like the original file that DID convert originally. Just a mess of colors.

How did the first file convert just fine and the edited one did not? They are both PSD file extensions. Am I saving it in notepad++ wrong? There are no errors on the code, changes were only a name and phone number. I know I am overlooking something real simple, but can't figure out what that is.

 

thanks!

You can use Paint.NET and the PSD plugin to open the file and edit it inside of Paint.NET. GiMP supports PSD out of the box but it has a steeper learning curve.

Thanks, John! I have to get better in Paint/working with layers, but it got the job done. :guitar:
