    I've made available a beta version of a plugin which can extract
    individual layers from PSD/PSB files. The main purpose however is to
    allow extraction of imagery from damaged/corrupted/truncated PSDs,
    because Photoshop usually refuses to open them, or at best produces a
    badly garbled image. This plugin tries much harder than Photoshop to
    extract data despite damage.

    It's also a much faster way to grab a single image layer from any PSD
    than opening the whole thing - especially if it's a complex file.

    Please test and send any feedback to me (support -at-

    The plugin is FREE (GPL), and donation is encouraged if you find it
    astonishingly useful.

    Download: http://www.telegraphics.com.au/sw/#psdrecover

    Versions are provided for CS2/Mac, CS3/Mac, and Windows. Version for
    3.0-7.0 & CS (Mac PowerPC) will be provided soon, contact me if you
    need this.


    The plugin may override Photoshop's built-in PSD/PSB format reader.
    If you find Photoshop defaulting to this plugin, just remove it and
    re-launch Photoshop.

    ONLY image layers are extracted (not any other layer type).

    There is currently no access to layer masks, alpha channels and spot
    channels. This is planned to be added.

    You're welcome. Look forward to any feedback. Bear in mind it's beta,
    I am planning further improvements.

    Hi there, i recently saved a psd file after deleting a very important layer. this layer content was a text and so big i really cannot recover it from my mind.

    Is there any chance to recover that psd file from another "save moment"?

    The version of Photoshop is the CS for mac. I'm using it in OS X Leopard.

    Thanks in advance.
