    http://www.gimp.org/

    Not sure how well it does, how similar it is to PS, etc, but when I looked in the "File/Open" menu, .psd files were one of them listed...

    Gimp is actually really damned powerful.

    there's a learning curve, and since i have 4 versions of photoshop I never learned gimp.

    This is very true. I imagine with time/patience, it will do whatever itisbruno wants. I've just never used Photoshop, thats why I said I didn't know how similar it was to PS.
