In this guide I'll show you how to convert figma to psd files.

It's a simple process that only takes a few minutes, so without further ado, let's get started!

From Figma to Photoshop

In order to convert a .fig file into a psd file, we will use a free online photo editor called Photopea.

In fact, based on my personal experience, Photopea is the best solution at the moment to convert a Figma to a Photoshop file.

You will simply need to head at Photopea.com and either select your .fig file via the Open from Computer button or simply drag and drop your figma file directly on the workspace:


In just a moment, you will see your figma file being loaded into the Photopea interface (which looks familiar to Photoshop's one) and you will be able to edit your designs with ease, or export them directly to a psd file:

Photopea file uploaded

In order to convert it to an Adobe Photoshop file, simply click on File > Save as PSD:

Save as PSD

This will save your figma files in psd files in a matter of minutes (or seconds, depending on the file size).

Congratulations, you now know how to convert your figma files in psd format!

👉 One last note: with Photopea you can also convert sketch files and many more file formats (SVG, XD, PDF..) into a psd file.

It's an overall easy to use software, and if you already have previous experience with Adobe Photoshop you'll find your way around the UI in no time.

Alternative methods

Another tool you can consider using for converting figma files into adobe photoshop files is by using a free tool called Filestar.com.

This cloud-based app will allow you to upload a .fig file via drag and drop (or select it from your computer) and export it automatically as a photoshop file:


It seems to be one of the best tool out there according to many designers who have used it extensively.

Another tool worth checking for this figma to photoshop conversion process is Magicul, another service for converting figma design files into photoshop files:


The process seems very similar to Filestar, making it easy to convert Figma to Psd.

Missing Fonts

One issue that you might ran into is finding yourself with missing fonts during the import.

This is an easy fix, simply because you will need to direct the tool you are using to the location of the fonts you used in your design files.

Essentially, you'll need to specify the path/folder of the fonts you've been using in that figma file, so that the cloud website can trace it and leverage that data to display the layers correctly.

How do you copy from Figma to Photoshop?

You can't copy directly from Figma to Photoshop using copy/paste commands, but you can easily translate a file using one of the tools that we mentioned above in this article.

Can you open FIG files in Photoshop?

Yes, you can, but before doing that you will need to convert figma files into a Psd using one of the tools that we mentioned above in this article.

We hope that this article was useful and that helped you bring your figma designs to a tiny better level :)
