Here is an assessment by Joel Lee on  article: The Best Ways to Open a PSD File Without Photoshop..

GIMP(free), runs on Windows, Mac, and Linux, can read PSD files.

Paint.NET + PSD Plugin (free and paid versions), Photopea Online Editor, XnView (Windows), IrfanView (Windows) are mainly use as an image viewer and converter.
