What format? Don’t use jpg as it is lossy. Use png or PDF.

Clearly not well enough.ūü§≠ But why¬†export as PSD if wanting to¬†import to APhoto.¬†PSD is an adobe proprietary file standard.¬†I can only assume some loss is¬†occuring¬†in the transforming process to create¬†AP proprietary format.
My original answer still applies.¬†If opening in AP I¬†would still suggest saving in a lossless format (not PSD (or jpg ūüėĀ)), before importing to AP and see if the quality is retained that way. If still lossy maybe Procreate is at fault?

Looks like your Fresco app  has appropriated the PDF file extension rights. 
If I share a Procreate file as png, I get the AP option and file opens but for PDF I get message affinity photo not installed or inappropriate file type. I use iOS shortcut in share sheet to open in Affinity. If I save the PDF export to Files I can then import it into Affinity ok. Very odd behaviour. Not sure if this is Affinity issue or iOS.
