free graphics app to open psd?

is there any graphics application out there which can handle psd files and its layers (think it would be enough if it does in a rudimentary way... its just for changing text on buttons in a bought template that delivers with psd files for customizing)?

    you could try the gimp - i'm almost positive it imports layered psd files

    (sourceforge is having problems at the moment so that link might not work for a while)

    there's also pixel32 which has a nicer interface than gimp - but costs $32 to buy after the trial period
  • well okay... $32 isnt that much, that would be okay. can you tell something more about pixel32? i see the screenshots and so on, but i mean your experiences with it... "feels" it good enough to use it for standard? the interface looks quite nice...

    @gimp: uh... i work very much with linux, but didnt notice gimp can handle this? oops :-> thx for that tipp too
  • i haven't used pixel enough to form an opinion, akb... there is a trial period, though...

    also i forgot to mention gimpshop which makes gimp act and look like photoshop.
  • i just checked - opening and saving a layered PSD works perfectly in gimpshop
  • thx... i'll check this out too :-)

    had to notice that gimp (2.3.6) and pixel32 cannot handle the text layers used in my bought template correctly *argh* it doesnt let me edit it... a google search told me this is because (in the case of gimp) gimp doesnt recognize it as a text layer correctly :-(
  • If it's just one file, I'd be happy to rasterize the text layers and send it back.

    If you need to do it for a bunch of files, that may not work.
