Apr 25, 2012 12:44 PM

I upgraded my IMac with Lion X which deactivated my Photoshop 7 and Cs2.  Is there a way to reactivate?

    Photoshop 7 is categorically not compatible with Lion (or even with Snow Leopard).  It simply won't run under 10.7.x, and that has nothing to do with activation or deactivation.

     

    That is for sure the case with Photoshop 7.x.  Now, as for CS2, it may or not work, but there are no guarantees.

    Photoshop 7 and CS2 both will not work on MAC Lion. So, you might be getting several issues.

    The reason for this error message is Resetta which is removed from the Mac LION ,

     

    Look the link for details:- kb2.adobe.com/cps/905/cpsid_90508.html , look at the section;- Rosetta not supported

     

    It would be better if you upgarde now , as you will get CS6 for free on purchase of CS5.5

    Then buy a second-hand Power Mac (PPC), such as G5 Power Mac, and run Tiger 10.4.1 or Leopard 10.5.8; then you can also run Photoshop 7 and CS2.  Last summer I bought a superb used G5 Quad [* specs below] for very, very little money.  Prices have fallen even further by now.

     

    Make no mistake, what "wiped out Photoshop" was your moving to a newer Mac with an Intel CPU and installing Lion.

     

    None of that is Adobe's fault.

     

    * Specs:  2.5 GHz Power Mac (PPC) G5-Quad; 16GB RAM; mutant, flashed 550MHz nVidia GeForce 7800GTX 1,700MHz 512MB VRAM; ATTO ExpressPCI UL5D LP SCSI card; Mac OS X Tiger 10.4.11 and Leopard 10.5.8 boot drives.

    The bottom line is that neither Photoshop 7.x nor Photoshop 9.x ("CS2") will ever work on your current machine and OS, and there's no way of getting around that issue.  None.

    Leehanvev you will be able to evaluate Photoshop CS6 for yourself this Monday.  We should have the trials available when we release the product.  Until then you can always try Photoshop Elements 10 so you will have something to compare against.  You can locate Photoshop Elements 10 at http://www.adobe.com/cfusion/tdrc/index.cfm?product=photoshop_elements &loc=en_us.
