In order to properly convert your Adobe Photoshop files to Figma, Sketch or Adobe XD, you need to properly embed all images that you used across your design.

Photoshop has two options on how images within a file can be stored. They can either be embedded in the file itself or they can simply be linked. A linked image isn't actually part of the Photoshop file itself, it simply stores the path to the local file on your computer. As a result, if you upload a Photoshop file to Magicul and the images are only linked, there is no way for us to access the images and properly convert your file.

How to embed images in your Photoshop (PSD) file.

There's a simple way to embed all the images at once. Simply follow the steps below:

  • Open the file

  • Click "Layer" in the top menu

  • Hover on "Smart Objects" in the menu that appears

  • Click "Embed All Linked"

Note: All images in the file need to be stored on your computer.

To make sure your images are added as embedded images, simply add your images with the following steps, instead of using drag & drop:

  • Go to "File" in the top menu

  • Select "Place Embedded..."

Don't use "Place Linked". This will only link to the image on your computer. The image will not be part of the file when you save it.
