Should I run Photoshop CS5 via Windows on my MacBook Pro?

by on November 15, 2010

Q: I have Photoshop Creative Suite 4 (for Windows) and would like to upgrade to Photoshop CS5 and install it on a brand new MacBook Pro. I am concerned about running this windows software on the Mac even though it is supposedly possible. I need something that will run trouble free and fast for my photography applications. Would I be better off spending the extra bucks to get a complete ($$$$) new Version of CS5 (for Mac)?

    For best results you’ll want to run the Mac version of Photoshop on your mac.

    Luckly, Adobe does sometimes sell a ‘crossgrade’ for about the same cost as the photoshop upgrade.
