    Cannot open .psd file in freeware program

    I am trying to find a freeware program which will open a .psd file. I have PAINT.net but this does not appear to be able to open .psd files.
    Does anyone know of a freeware package or online software program which could open a .psd file?

    Any help would be appreciated.

    IrfanView - one of the most popular viewers worldwide says it will open, but NOT save the PSD files. I don't have any on hand to try, but it's <img src=/S/free.gif border=0 alt=free width=30 height=15>

    I can't find any freeware that will do it for you, although there are free trial versions of Photoshop and Photoshop Elements on the Adobe website which would let you open the file and save it in a different format for future use (if it's a one-off requirement).

    If at first you do succeed, you&#39;ve probably missed something.

    Yet another FREE program that will open Photoshop files is FastStone Image Viewer. I have used it for a month or so, and find it's fantastic! Really nice freeware. FastStone Image Viewer
