AFAIK, once you save a file as a GIF you lose the Photoshop layers and
it becomes a "flattened" image. The other writer would have to save them
as Photoshop (PSP) files. I don't know if other graphics programs can
open PSP files.

I haven't used the Corel program, but any graphics program can edit GIF
files. The problem is if you want to edit individual layers -- for that,
you'd need to edit the original PSP file, and therefore might need
Photoshop. The newest PaintShop Pro (< $100, I think) also has layers,
but can it read Photoshop layers? I don't know.
