PC and/or MAC for CS5

Apr 22, 2012 12:29 PM

Is Photoshop CS5 available in Multiple Platfrom (for both PC and MAC) as my LR4 and PSE9?

 

I usually order a CD but this time I downloaded the program and was forced to choose windows or MAC. So, the serial number only works for Windows and not on my MAC which I use for travel.

    Unlike Lightroom, you must choose either the Windows or Macintosh version of Photoshop.  There is no multiple platform version.

    Parallels may help - you could run a Windows system virtually.

    Win runs in a window in VMWare Fusion, allowing Mac to run as usual, but Win will be a bit slower.

    Yes, I should have mentioned Fusion as well.  Heck, I use VMware on my PC workstation all the time.  They do good work!
