.phd File Extension

Developer: IBM/CyberLink
File type: Portable Head Dump File/PhotoDirector Project File
You're here because you have a file that has a file extension ending in .phd. Files with the file extension .phd can only be launched by certain applications. It's possible that .phd files are data files rather than documents or media, which means they're not meant to be viewed at all.

what is a .phd file?

The .phd file extension is used by the program PhotoDirector which is used to edit digital photos. Files with this extension are called photo project files as they are used to refer to either the imported images or edited images using the program. This file extension supports a variety of camera formats. .phd files are also Portable Heap Dump format files and they play a great role in the creation of Javaheap dump files mainly created by Java Virtual Machine. These files contain objects related to Java that can be used to debug errors that occur in the application. The file extension is also used by Punch! CAD as plan files and they are essential to users using the application in creating model homes and landscapes in 3D format. It is also used as a game level file in the Tomb Raider video game. Other applications such as PolyHedra Database and ViewChoice also make use of the .phd file extension.

how to open a .phd file?

Launch a .phd file, or any other file on your PC, by double-clicking it. If your file associations are set up correctly, the application that's meant to open your .phd file will open it. It's possible you may need to download or purchase the correct application. It's also possible that you have the correct application on your PC, but .phd files aren't yet associated with it. In this case, when you try to open a .phd file, you can tell Windows which application is the correct one for that file. From then on, opening a  .phd file will open the correct application.

CyberLink PhotoDirector 3

CyberLink PhotoDirector 3

CyberLink Photo Director 3 is a program which edits and organizes the images of the user. It can remove anything unwanted portion of the images. The artist may also improve the looks of anyone in the image by using one of its features called the “beautifier”. With this option, the user may remove wrinkles, smoothen the skin, make the eyes more tantalizing and much more. The user may also utilizer a tool namely "Tooth Brush" to whiten the teeth of a person in the image. There are also numerous templates to choose on. For fish eyed distortions, there are available tools such as the Lens correction tool. This software runs on Microsoft platform like Windows XP, Window Vista, and Window 7. The processor should not lower than 3 GHz, 2 GB RAM, At least 1 GB space on the Hard Drive and a Video Graphics Array card with at least 128 MB of memory.
IBM HeapRoots

IBM HeapRoots

HeapRoots is a tool written in Java used for analyzing heap dumps. It is an unofficial utility though and will be provided “as-is”. It is a utility that will help you obtain solutions for memory problems, but it is not the solution to your main problem. HeapRoots will analyze a heap dump base on objects, object type, heap roots, heap gaps that refer to spaces in between objects, and references from and to a given object. The outcome is featured as a flat list or an indented tree. It can be filtered and sorted out.
IBM HeapAnalyzer

IBM HeapAnalyzer

IBM HeapAnalyzer is a graphical utility that lets you detect possible Java heap leaks by using its heuristic search engine and Java heap dump analysis in Java programs. Java heap areas give definition to classes, objects and arrays. When the Garbage Collector allocates storage areas in the heap, an object continuously lives while its reference exists somewhere in the JVM’s active state making it reachable. When the active state stops referencing the object, it becomes garbage. It can be reclaimed for later reuse. For reclamation to take place, the Garbage Collector must come up with a potential finalizer and secure that internal JVM resources associated with the object will be returned to the pool for such resources. Java heap dumps are the snap shots of Java heaps at certain times. HeapAnalyzer analyzes these dumps by parsing them, constructing directional graphs, restructuring them into directional trees and operating the heuristic search engine. Some of the features of HeapAnalyzer are size recommendation of kCluster, list of suspects for Java heap leaks, gap list among allocated arrays/classes/objects, search engine for Java classes/objects/arrays, list of objects, arrays and classes by type name, address, object name, size, child size, child number and frequency, available heap space list by size, Java heap dump tree view and saving and loading of processed Java heap dumps.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .phd files, or any other files. This will not change the file type. Only special conversion software can change a file from one file type to another.

what is a file extension?

A file extension is the set of three or four characters at the end of a filename; in this case, .phd. File extensions tell you what type of file it is, and tell Windows what programs can open it. Windows often associates a default program to each file extension, so that when you double-click the file, the program launches automatically. When that program is no longer on your PC, you can sometimes get an error when you try to open the associated file.
