Way to view photoshop files in web browser?

on: February 07, 2017, 12:13:55 am
Just wondering if such a thing exists.
I mainly use photoshop but can't view the images from devices such as my mobile or some computer that i cant install software on.

Thanks  ;D

I may be misinterpreting your question, but photoshop has an export feature which allows you to save files in browser-readable formats. Try exporting your image as a PNG, maybe?

Some browser-based solution, without any installation :
From a bit of Googling, it seems Google Drive lets you (pre)view PSD files.
Also I can see there's an online Photoshop look-alike called photopea which can open PSD files. It seems in active development, so it should open the recent variants of PSD format. However I don't know how they work, so I would trust this service for hobby graphics which I don't care if they land anywhere on the Internet, but I would be reluctant to use it for professional files (At least not without further research) :

Holy crap that Photopea is pretty cool thanks  :y:

Looks like it should serve the purpose of viewing (and some editing!) scraps and WIPs that aren't exported.
