    Viewing psd layers outwith Photoshop

    I work for a mapping company, which creates custom wall maps and map data for clients.

    We are trying to find a way for to send out map samples to clients including all layers so they can get a better understanding of what's going on and for them to see samples in greater detail.

    Is there any bits of free software out there that will allow someone to open up a psd file and view each layer? It has to be free and a reasonably small download.

    Any ideas? Cheers y'all in advance

    Wouldn't Photoshop Elements still be less than $100? I don't know.

    not sure because I don't work with psd, but try gimp. There is both windows and linux versions, is free, I know it can open psd file but I'm not sure how much details can offer.
    I don't know but is simple to check if there is a mac port for gimp.

    regards
