Photoshop CS2 & 3

Postby Allen-H » Thu Aug 16, 2007 7:37 pm

Is it possible to have CS2 and CS3 installed on the same computer. Would like to know before getting CS 3 What pitfalls I might encounter.My O/S is Windows XP Home edition. Thanks in advance

Each Photoshop install uses a separate folder in both Program Files and Documents and Settings (all under Adobe), so it is safe to have different versions installed.

yes it'll work. I have version 7, CS2 and CS3 as well as elements 3,4 and 6 on My Notebook. However, the brush engine changed somewhat and many brush .ABR's might not work within version CS3. Same applies to Elements. You'll get a prompt in Photoshop. Make sure you choose a scratch disk.

Also, just a quick note. When installing plugins, create a separate folder to install them into INSTEAD of each version's plugin folder. Then create the shortcut in Photoshop pointing to that folder. This way each version can use the plugins.

Yes, It is possible, I'm using 3 versions of Photoshop at once.
