Please help!!”

PDD is an image file format that was used by Adobe PhotoDeluxe image editing tool to save its picture files. This program is now replaced by Adobe Photoshop Elements tool that is nearly same as Photoshop. The images created or edited by PhotoDeluxe are saved with the file extension .pdd, which can also be opened with Photoshop tool. However, a PDD file can get corrupt in number of ways thus resulting in inaccessibility of that image file.

Some commonly seen disasters for PDD file corruption are:

  • Using unreliable photo editing tools to open PDD image
  • PDD file header corruption due to improper save, virus intrusion, etc.
  • PDD file layer corruption due to abrupt termination of Adobe application
  • Incorrect way of download / transfer of PDD file over network due to improper connectivity
  • Interruptions while moving PDD file from system to external storage device or vice versa like unorthodox removal of storage device, forceful system shutdown as a result of power surge, etc.
