.PSD and Linux

Is there any software for Linux that can edit and manipulate .PSD files (photoshop)

Have you tried The GIMP?

It's a pale comparison to Photoshop, but as close as you'll come to something that actually works. It will open with layers, but afaik you can't edit the layers. I just opened a Photoshop image (.psd) with GIMP-2.2.12 and it could not.

Photoshop and InDesign are two apps for which I still have a Windoze partition. There really is no suitable OSS replacement, IMQO.

If your machine is powerful enough, you might want to use QEMU. Then in QEMU you can install Windoze, and in that Windoze install Photoshop. A bit of a hack, but you can run Windows apps without rebooting.
