Just upload your PSD on the site and then it will show you the errors and warnings it discovers in your file.
It will also give your PSD a score between 0-100%.
The tips and warnings are based on best practices found in Photoshop Etiquette, a guide outlining best practices for web designers using Photoshop.
Errors and warnings may include things like "use whole numbers for font sizes" and "low ratio of groups detected."
I tested our slick modern buttons PSD freebie and PSD Validator discovered 1 error:
The error it found was font sizes weren’t using whole numbers. According to Photoshop Etiquette: "It rarely makes sense to use fractions and decimals in Photoshop."
I didn’t even know that was an issue. Now I do. It’s a logical reason, especially when we’re using whole-number units like px or pt.
The filesize limit is 30MB. If you try to upload something bigger, PSD Validator will tell you:
If you’re worried about privacy, you should know the site doesn’t keep your PSD files — it deletes your PSD right after it’s done analyzing it.
PSD Validator was created by Swedish digital art director, Petter Nilsson.
