As an alternative, you can change PSD to PNG using Aspose.Imaging Cloud and cURL commands as it offers a straightforward and scriptable solution, when you are seeking to automate image conversion tasks. With just a few simple commands, you can initiate the PSD to PNG conversion process where we specify the input PSD file, and receive the resulting PNG output. This approach allows for seamless integration into existing workflows and automation pipelines, enabling efficient batch processing of PSD files.

The first step is to generate a JWT access token using the following command:

curl -v "" \
 -X POST \
 -d "grant_type=client_credentials&client_id=163c02a1-fcaa-4f79-be54-33012487e783&client_secret=c71cfe618cc6c0944f8f96bdef9813ac" \
 -H "Content-Type: application/x-www-form-urlencoded" \
 -H "Accept: application/json"

The next step is to execute the following command to save Photoshop as PNG and save the output on local drive.

curl -v "{sourceImage}/convert?format=png" \
-X GET \
-H "accept: application/json" \
-H "authorization: Bearer {accessToken}" \
-o "resultant.png"

Replace sourceImage with the name of input PSD file available in cloud storage, and accessToken with JWT access token generated above.


In conclusion, we have learned that Aspose.Imaging Cloud ensures high-quality conversion results, preserving image quality, transparency, and other important attributes during the PSD to PNG transformation process. So, whether you choose to utilize Aspose.Imaging Cloud SDK for .NET or integrate Aspose.Imaging Cloud with cURL commands, both approaches offer versatile solutions for automating image conversion tasks, empowering you to effortlessly bridge the gap between Photoshop PSD format and the widely supported PNG format.
