Hi, can't seem to find one. Gimp export to .psd has errors opening in CTA3. Same for Corel 8, Affinity Pro, Paint.net. (all layer type errors). About the only free editor that actually exports .psd files correctly for CTA3 is Photopea, but since its online, you cannot get CTA3 to export a character to it via the pipeline.
I seem to be stuck! Has anyone got a solution that works? Thanks!

The Affinity Design is compatible.
You can refer below figure to choose your PSD Editor.

Thanks a ton, this is very helpful. Someone  just posted the same thing on the FB group - maybe it was you under the name Kanor Edor? Anyoway this is really good.
 I just did an experiment with Krita. CTA3> Krita (a 1 file, not 2) save, then import back into CTA3, no errors! So far so good.
Thanks again.

Affinity Designer is working. The mistake I made was that  I assumed you all were using Affinity Photo. That was where I was having layer issues.
Photopea is free, and the layers work - but it's an online editor - CTA3 can't send files to it.
Thanks especially to Vepop for having the patience to help me figure that out (on the FB CTA3 pages).
So to conclude, the 2 Photoshop alternatives that have worked (with CTA3)  for me so far are Krita (free) and Affinity Designer $49. I am going to go with Affinity Designer because it's interface is awesome and it also has the vector tools, plus photo tools.
