Skala Preview and Photoshop CS4

Skala Preview can work with Photoshop CS4 (and older versions) in a couple of different ways. If Skala Preview is set to Send All Images on Clipboard, then anything you copy in Photoshop will get sent to your connected iOS devices. If you’d only like to send iOS sized images on the clipboard, then please choose Send iOS Sized Images on Clipboard from the Transfer menu.

To copy your entire canvas in Photoshop, select all with Command-A, then choose Copy Merged from the Edit menu. This will put the contents of the entire canvas on the clipboard, and Skala Preview will send it to your iOS device.

Please note that Photoshop doesn’t export the clipboard until you switch to another app (we assume this is done for performance reasons). To preview your mock up on your iOS device, you’ll need to copy your entire canvas to the clipboard, then switch to another app. If you have our Photoshop Actions installed, there’s one for copying the entire canvas to the clipboard, so sending an image from Photoshop CS4 is as easy as running the action, then pressing command-tab or clicking on the desktop to switch apps.

Alternatively, you can also drag most image files to Skala Preview’s window. Skala Preview does support Photoshop native PSD files, provided they are saved with Image Previews set to Always Save under File Handling in Photoshop’s Preferences.
