psd_tools

See Usage for examples.

PSDImage

class psd_tools.PSDImage(data)[source]

Photoshop PSD/PSB file object.

The low-level data structure is accessible at PSDImage._record.

Example:

from psd_tools import PSDImage

psd = PSDImage.open('example.psd')
image = psd.compose()

for layer in psd:
    layer_image = layer.compose()
bbox

Minimal bounding box that contains all the visible layers.

Use viewbox to get viewport bounding box. When the psd is empty, bbox is equal to the canvas bounding box.

Returns:(left, top, right, bottom) tuple.
bottom

Bottom coordinate.

Returns:int
channels

Number of color channels.

Returns:int
color_mode

Document color mode, such as ‘RGB’ or ‘GRAYSCALE’. See ColorMode.

Returns:ColorMode
compose(force=False, bbox=None, **kwargs)[source]

Compose the PSD image.

See compose() for available extra arguments.

Parameters:bbox – Viewport tuple (left, top, right, bottom).
Returns:PIL.Image, or None if there is no pixel.
depth

Pixel depth bits.

Returns:int
descendants(include_clip=True)

Return a generator to iterate over all descendant layers.

Example:

# Iterate over all layers
for layer in psd.descendants():
    print(layer)

# Iterate over all layers in reverse order
for layer in reversed(list(psd.descendants())):
    print(layer)
Parameters:include_clip – include clipping layers.
classmethod frompil(image, compression=<Compression.PACK_BITS: 1>)[source]

Create a new PSD document from PIL Image.

Parameters:
  • image – PIL Image object.
  • compression – ImageData compression option. See Compression.
Returns:

A PSDImage object.

has_preview()[source]

Returns if the document has real merged data. When True, topil() returns pre-composed data.

has_thumbnail()[source]

True if the PSDImage has a thumbnail resource.

height

Document height.

Returns:int
image_resources

Document image resources. ImageResources is a dict-like structure that keeps various document settings.

See psd_tools.constants.Resource for available keys.

Returns:ImageResources

Example:

from psd_tools.constants import Resource
version_info = psd.image_resources.get_data(Resource.VERSION_INFO)
slices = psd.image_resources.get_data(Resource.SLICES)

Image resources contain an ICC profile. The following shows how to export a PNG file with embedded ICC profile:

from psd_tools.constants import Resource
icc_profile = psd.image_resources.get_data(Resource.ICC_PROFILE)
image = psd.compose(apply_icc=False)
image.save('output.png', icc_profile=icc_profile)
is_group()[source]

Return True if the layer is a group.

Returns:bool
is_visible()[source]

Returns visibility of the element.

Returns:bool
kind

Kind.

Returns:‘psdimage’
left

Left coordinate.

Returns:0
name

Element name.

Returns:‘Root’
classmethod new(mode, size, color=0, depth=8, **kwargs)[source]

Create a new PSD document.

Parameters:
  • mode – The color mode to use for the new image.
  • size – A tuple containing (width, height) in pixels.
  • color – What color to use for the image. Default is black.
Returns:

A PSDImage object.

offset

(left, top) tuple.

Returns:tuple
classmethod open(fp, **kwargs)[source]

Open a PSD document.

Parameters:
  • fp – filename or file-like object.
  • encoding – charset encoding of the pascal string within the file, default ‘macroman’. Some psd files need explicit encoding option.
Returns:

A PSDImage object.

parent

Parent of this layer.

right

Right coordinate.

Returns:int
save(fp, mode='wb', **kwargs)[source]

Save the PSD file.

Parameters:
  • fp – filename or file-like object.
  • encoding – charset encoding of the pascal string within the file, default ‘macroman’.
  • mode – file open mode, default ‘wb’.
size

(width, height) tuple.

Returns:tuple
tagged_blocks

Document tagged blocks that is a dict-like container of settings.

See psd_tools.constants.Tag for available keys.

Returns:TaggedBlocks or None.

Example:

from psd_tools.constants import Tag
patterns = psd.tagged_blocks.get_data(Tag.PATTERNS1)
thumbnail()[source]

Returns a thumbnail image in PIL.Image. When the file does not contain an embedded thumbnail image, returns None.

top

Top coordinate.

Returns:0
topil(channel=None, **kwargs)[source]

Get PIL Image.

Parameters:channel – Which channel to return; e.g., 0 for ‘R’ channel in RGB image. See ChannelID. When None, the method returns all the channels supported by PIL modes.
Returns:PIL.Image, or None if the composed image is not available.
version

Document version. PSD file is 1, and PSB file is 2.

Returns:int
viewbox

Return bounding box of the viewport.

Returns:(left, top, right, bottom) tuple.
visible

Visibility.

Returns:True
width

Document width.

Returns:int

compose

psd_tools.compose(layers, bbox=None, context=None, layer_filter=None, color=None, **kwargs)[source]

Compose layers to a single PIL.Image. If the layers do not have visible pixels, the function returns None.

Example:

image = compose([layer1, layer2])

In order to skip some layers, pass layer_filter function which should take layer as an argument and return True to keep the layer or return False to skip:

image = compose(
    layers,
    layer_filter=lambda x: x.is_visible() and x.kind == 'type'
)

By default, visible layers are composed.

Note

This function is experimental and does not guarantee Photoshop-quality rendering.

Currently the following are ignored:

  • Adjustments layers
  • Layer effects
  • Blending mode (all blending modes become normal)

Shape drawing is inaccurate if the PSD file is not saved with maximum compatibility.

Parameters:
  • layers – a layer, or an iterable of layers.
  • bbox – (left, top, bottom, right) tuple that specifies a region to compose. By default, all the visible area is composed. The origin is at the top-left corner of the PSD document.
  • contextPIL.Image object for the backdrop rendering context. Must be used with the correct bbox size.
  • layer_filter – a callable that takes a layer and returns bool.
  • color – background color in int or tuple.
Returns:

PIL.Image or None.
