.psd file into Canvas

Jump to solution

Anyone work with .psd files in Canvas? I have an instructor I'm working with for a graphic design course, and she would like to add Photoshop files (.psd.) into Canvas to be downloaded by the student. I can't seem to find any info on this. Or if anyone can share an idea on how to share this file via Canvas, maybe with a third party app?

Hi,

Since you're just sharing the file, not really trying to preview or do anything with it in Canvas, you would just upload the .psd file into the Files area of the course (https://community.canvaslms.com/t5/Canvas-Basics-Guide/What-are-Files/ta-p/7 ), then link to it from a module, page, assignment, etc. as described in https://community.canvaslms.com/t5/Instructor-Guide/How-do-I-create-hyperlinks-to-course-group-and-u...
