Repairing PSD Headers on Mac

In Adobe Photoshop, a PSD file is a document file format created by Photoshop program. A PSD header file is data or a signature placed in the .psd file that enables the Photoshop software to access that file accordingly. Generally, the header files are critical for accessibility of that file as these contain information such as file format details, content details, registry details and activity logs. In Photoshop, a PSD header may contain information about that Photoshop file regarding the image size, resolution, layers, colors codes, file extension details and other important matter.

Therefore, the PSD header file is critical for the concerned Photoshop software to recognize and access data from it. If the .psd header file data gets corrupted or damaged, the operating system or the Photoshop software may never be able to read that file. There are various causes that lead to PSD file header corruptions on a Mac OS X based computer, few of which are briefed below:
