The PAA plugin has alot of issues (atleast from personal experience) I recommend opening it with "Texture Viewer" from BI Tools.

Open your chosen 'Texture.PAA'
> FILE > Save As >
then under "File Type" change it to > "All Files (".") "

And change the extension on the file to '.png' i.e you want to edit "Texture.paa" (save as "Texture.png")

> Edit till satisfied in CS6 etc. (Save as .PNG)

Then when you want to change it back to '.PAA' open the original "Texture.paa." or 'Texture Viewer'

then > FILE > 'OPEN' > select the edited '.png' click OPEN (or double click)

You'll now see your edited texture in Texture Viewer.

FILE > SAVE AS > then CLICK (highlight) the original 'Texture.PAA' save over it (overwrite).

You now have a texture; congratz.

I'm sure there's easier ways, however its very quick and easy once you've done it a few times.

Hope this helps, PM if you want me to talk you through it or i can make a video tutorial.
