    “of the world’s first PSD Publishing, Sharing, and Collaboration web app”

    That’s a joke, is it? There are a lot web apps and services like this.

    • http://psdvoid.com Jonathan Yarbor

      No other application does all of the above with PSDs alone. There are applications that include PSDs in their flow, but none that natively work with PSD files.

      • Tim Burkins

        How is this different than DesignMoo, 365PSD, Littlepsd, or Dribbble?

      I feel like this isn’t useful at all, especially since Dribbble just launched a file upload system, where you can share, get feedback on PSD’s or any zip file. The idea is neat, but good luck getting users to actually use it.

      Also, I would like to mention, you need to get some design built into your site.

        Thanks for the feedback. This site has some history almost a year and a half back. It was built for a school competition and went to nationals. I reworked the entire site again as I had a lot more flexibly from what the competition required of our site. I’ve been trying to find a designer who is interested however it has been unfruitful. I felt the important thing was to launch it before more sites launched making us look even more like a copy.

        The idea behind the site is more of a safe and easier sharing environment. We validate and convert the PSDs server-side to ensure what you are downloading is safe. We have extensive plans for the site, but are still working out the basics right now. Also the site’s functionality is for sharing and collaboration – not getting feedback or showing off your work.

    It’s done…. @ministrypixel

    What’s so special about this? I don’t find it very useful. And the PSD’s that are public are poorly designed!

    • http://psdvoid.com Jonathan Yarbor

      Not all of them, some are as we don’t control quality, but we definitely have some great works uploaded.

    • http://psdvoid.com Jonathan Yarbor

      I took some advise from what you said and changed the homepage from the most recent to the most popular. Now you should see the best of the best without having to dig around too much.

      • Tate Simmons

        How is this different than 365psd, DesignMoo, Littlepsd, Premium Pixels, or any other psd sharing resource? At 365psd you can upload psds, just like you can on your site, and their site is much friendlier. I wouldn’t mind trying your site out thought.

        Do you have a beta key or something?

      • http://psdvoid.com Jonathan Yarbor

        How is this different? Our site actually goes into detail of reading PSDs, validating that they are in fact a real PSD, converting them into a browser friendly version that anyone can see WITHOUT A PREVIEW IMAGE, and creates a panel for designers to collaborate with one another – seamlessly.

        You can share PSDs on many sites including DeviantART, 365psd, DesignMoo, Littlepsd, Premium Pixels, your own website, and ect. The problem is that your users don’t have validation of the PSD, no visual to see what they are actually downloading, and that is more work for the sharing party.
