Adobe Photoshop On Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard Is Good To Go
Adobe Photoshop On Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard Is Good To GoJohn Nack has posted the following info on Photoshop and Leopard compatibility to his blog: "The good news is that most Adobe apps don't require updates in order to run well. That is, the CS3 versions of Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, Flash, Dreamweaver, Fireworks, and other apps are good to go for Leopard right now. Rock out."

He quotes some FAQ items from the Leopard Read Me files, then goes on to say: "I can't speak for other app teams, but while we naturally concentrated our testing on Photoshop CS3 (and beyond), we also tested CS2 a fair bit. The only significant problem we discovered is that Photoshop's Web Photo Gallery module can crash while running under Leopard. We plan to post an updated version that fixes the crash, but that won't go up until Monday. In case you're impatient, I've attached the file here. And that, in a nutshell, is it. Have fun." You can also monitor what's going on with users by reading through the comments on his blog.

For install advice, head over to the tech blog of Adobe's Terry White and read through The Road to Leopard - Part 1. Terry has a very smart system to make sure you protect yourself when installing Leopard. He suggests using an external boot drive to handle the new system install and tells you how to do it.

Adobe Photoshop On Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard Is Good To GoFor more on compatibility issues, read The Road to Leopard - Part 2. In this post he says: "Now for the news that many of you have been waiting for: Adobe Creative Suite 3 compatibility is GREAT! A few of the apps (Acrobat 8 Professional, Premiere Pro CS3, After Effects CS3, Soundbooth CS3 and Encore CS3) will need dot releases and those dot releases are in the works. The dot releases are mostly to fix minor issues."

On the Adobe site you can find an official Adobe Leopard statement in PDF that has all the timelines for future updates. You can find extensive Leopard coverage at the MacWorld site, and to keep on top of the latest issues, visit the Adobe User To User Forums and the Apple Leopard Support Forums.

Look Within – Photoshop’s Helpful Help Center
Powered by GoogleThere is plenty of good information hiding under Photoshop's own Help menu, including some simple tutorials called "How To" tips. Look through them and you'll find that many of the most popular tutorial subjects are covered here, right inside of Photoshop.

Photoshop Help provides detailed explanations about how each of Photoshop's many tools work, and if you’re experiencing difficulties manipulating a particular tool you may not need to look any further for your solution. This will save you from weeding unnecessarily through forum pages and tutorial sites. Also note that if you're learning a new version of Photoshop, the "New Features" category will show you all of the latest changes in one shot. This can help immensely when trying to get up to speed with new tools and interface changes.
