With Aspose.Imaging for .NET, developers can easily convert JPEG to PSD with just a few lines of code.
By using Aspose.Total for .NET, developers can quickly and easily export XPS to PSD image within any .NET applications. With just two simple steps, developers can easily export XPS to JPEG with Aspose.PDF for .NET and then convert JPEG to PSD with Aspose.Imaging for .NET. Aspose.Total for .NET is a comprehensive suite of .NET components that makes it easy for developers to create, manipulate, convert, and export various file formats within their .NET applications.
Convert XPS file to PSD via .NET
Get Started with .NET File Automation APIs
Install from command line as
nuget install Aspose.Total or install directly from Package Manager Console of Visual Studio.
Alternatively, get the offline MSI installer or DLLs in a ZIP file from downloads .
Convert XPS File to PSD in a Single File via C#
Using the API, you can also convert XPS file to PSD to a single image file. In order to convert all pages, you can first render your XPS document to one TIFF file and after that you can export TIFF file to PSD. You can open the input file using Document class and create Resolution, TiffSettings, & TIFF device objects. You can get a single TIFF image using Process method of TiffDevice class. Finally, you can load TIFF file using Image class and save it to PSD format using Save method.
Convert XPS to PSD With Watermark via C#
Using the API, you can also convert XPS file to PSD with watermark in your PSD document. In order to add a watermark, you can first render your XPS document to JPEG and add a watermark in it. To demonstrate the operation, you can load your converted JPEG image, add transformations using an object of Matrix class and draw a string as the watermark on the image surface using the Graphics class’ DrawString method. After adding the watermark in it, you can save the JPEG as PSD format. Below is a code example that demonstrates how to add a diagonal watermark to your document.
Convert & Rotate XPS File to PSD via C#
Using the API, you can also rotate the output PSD image as per your needs. The Image.RotateFlip method can be used to rotate the image by 90/180/270-degrees and flip the image horizontally or vertically. You can specify the type of rotation and flip to apply to the image. In order to rotate and flip the image you can load the converted JPEG image using the factory method exposed by Image class and call the Image.RotateFlip method while specifying the appropriate RotateFlipType .

What is XPS File Format?
XPS, short for XML Paper Specification, is a file format created by Microsoft to represent fixed-layout documents. XPS files contain the content and print settings of a document, making them suitable for preserving the layout and appearance of a document across different devices and platforms.
The XPS format is based on XML (eXtensible Markup Language), a widely used markup language for structured data representation. XPS files encapsulate document content, such as text, images, vector graphics, and annotations, in a structured XML format. This enables easy interpretation and rendering of the document’s visual elements.
XPS files are conceptually similar to PDF (Portable Document Format) files in that they both aim to provide a reliable way to present and share documents while preserving their formatting and layout. However, PDF files have gained broader support across different software applications and hardware devices, making them more widely accepted and compatible.
To view and work with XPS files, Microsoft provides an XPS Viewer as part of the Windows operating system. Various third-party applications and tools also offer support for opening, creating, and converting XPS files. However, compared to PDF, the range of software and hardware supporting the XPS format may be more limited.
What is PSD File Format?
The PSD (Photoshop Document) file format is the default file format used by Adobe Photoshop, a popular software application for graphic design and image editing. PSD files are designed to store layered images, allowing users to work with multiple elements and effects on separate layers within a single file.
PSD files are characterized by their ability to preserve complex image data, including layers, masks, blending modes, transparency, and other advanced features. This makes them highly versatile and flexible for professional graphic designers and photographers who require precise control over their creative work.
In a PSD file, each layer can contain different image elements, such as text, shapes, filters, adjustment layers, and more. This layer-based approach allows for non-destructive editing, as users can modify individual layers without affecting the rest of the image. It also enables easy editing and manipulation of specific parts of an image.
The PSD file format supports high-quality color modes, such as RGB, CMYK, and grayscale, ensuring accurate representation of colors for various output purposes, including print and web.
In addition to Adobe Photoshop, many other image editing software applications can open and edit PSD files, although some advanced features may not be fully supported. However, to retain all the layer information and effects, it is recommended to work with PSD files in Adobe Photoshop.
When the editing process is complete, PSD files can be saved in other common image file formats, such as JPEG or PNG, for sharing or web display purposes. However, it’s important to note that converting a PSD file to another format may result in the loss of layer information and other advanced features.
