    CS2 Photoshop Crash


      I am running CS2 on a mac.  Photoshop just started crashing for me.  All the other programs work fine.  I tried uninstalling and reinstalling.  That did not help.  Any advice aside from buying an updated version?

          If it was once working, and it still CAN work (i.e., you haven't upgraded your OS to the point where PowerPC code is no longer supported), then one thing you can try is to clear Photoshop's preferences.  This involves pressing and holding the Command - Option - Shift key combination during a cold start of Photoshop.  You have to be quick to get the keys down, and if you're fast enough it will prompt you to confirm deletion of the preferences - which will subsequently lead to all-default preferences being created.

            You're running in Rosetta emulation, and Apple has stopped supporting Rosetta (dropping it completely in 10.7).


            Your best bet is to upgrade to a recent version of Photoshop that runs Intel native code.
