PSD to JPG Conversion API

For conversion of PSD to JPG format, we are going to use Aspose.Imaging Cloud SDK for Java that enables to implement image processing and conversion capabilities within Java application. So with the help of this SDK, you get the capabilities to programmatically edit, manipulate and transform raster, metafiles, photoshop to variety of Supported Formats. Now in order to get started with SDK utilization, we need to add its reference in our java project by including following information in pom.xml (maven build type project).



If we have already registered on Aspose Cloud Dashboard, please obtain your client credentials from Cloud Dashboard. Else, you need to first register a free account while using a valid email address.

In this section, we are going to discuss the details on how to convert photoshop to JPG using Java code snippet.

  • First of all, create an object of ImagingApi using personalized client credentials
  • Secondly, read the PSD file using readAllBytes(…) method and pass to byte[] array
  • Thirdly, create an instance of UploadFileRequest where we pass input PSD name and upload to cloud storage using uploadFile(…) method
  • Now create an object of ConvertImageRequest where we specify input PSD and resultant format jpg
  • Call the method convertImage(…) to convert PSD to PNG format and result is returned as response stream

The Aspose.Imaging Cloud is developed according to REST architecture, so we can easily access the API via command line terminal on any platform and fulfill our requirements. So as a pre-requisite, first we need to generate a JWT access token (based on client credentials) using following command.

curl -v "" \
-d "grant_type=client_credentials&client_id=bb959721-5780-4be6-be35-ff5c3a6aa4a2&client_secret=4d84d5f6584160cbd91dba1fe145db14" \
-H "Content-Type: application/x-www-form-urlencoded" \
-H "Accept: application/json"

Once the JWT token is generation, please execute the following command to convert photoshop to jpg format.

curl -v -X GET "" \
-H "accept: application/json" \
-H "authorization: Bearer <JWT Token>" \
-o Resultant.jpg
