When you’re working in a team and multiple designers and developers are working on the same Photoshop file, there are certain protocols you need to follow.
You need to use an appropriate naming convention for PSD files, like ProjectName_Job_Version.psd instead of the default Untitled-1.psd. You should label your layers and organize them into groups. You should also save all assets relevant to the PSD, like fonts, logos, high-res images, etc.
