Can anyone recommend a free reader — similar to the Acrobat reader for PDF files perhaps? — for opening PSD files? Many thanks for any advice!

Good morning Arks,
PSD files are exclusive for Photoshop and as far as I know there are no free readers for this format. I use CorelDraw a lot for paging and import PSD files without too many problems.
If I am not wrong you can download the free version of Photoshop Elements which allows you to open and read PSD format files.

Irfanview will happily read them.
It's a free program, and if you install the plugins you'll be able to see almost all fileformats, including movies and pdf's.
I often use it for quickly seeing which photos I took before firing up Lightroom (old pc, saves time).
You can export, resize, crop and some other basic functions with the photos, psd's etc.

AFAIK IrfanView will also read PSD files - also most likely just about any other graphics format you can imagine. (Have not used for some time so not sure if it is fully compatible with the latest PS versions)

Googling "psd reader" also lists "PNG PSD Viewer V1.0" and "PSD Viewer V3.2" but I have never used either.

You see arks I've just been corrected on this. Never used free software but I see other formites have given you the info you needed.

Its possible Paint.Net (open source) can read them too? (I have not done the research)

Thanks for all the replies,as always it's amazing what a resource this forum is! :clap: I already have Irfanview, which is what I use for resizing pix for the forum, so will have a go with that. Thanks so much for pointing me in the right direction!
