    Wanting to know if I can set up a photo viewer to display a range of filetypes; FILENAME.PSD will be one (from Photoshop, of course).
    Thank you

    Only way you can view .psd on an ipad is to use the photoshop app. Ipad only supports .gif and .jpg on it's own.

    Also .tiff and .png, though the specs don't mention the last.

    There are other apps besides Photoshop that will display .psd files, if they aren't too complicated; but I can't think of any off the top of my head.

    .psd is a photoshop layered file, and can be large , so it kinda makes no sense to add to a standard photo app unless you need to maintain the layers to work on, even "photoshop touch" from Adobe cannot do this on the iPad as yet.
    Further the amount of memory required to view and edit would probably be a factor.

    I believe IrfanView, which will open psd files, has an app.
