My company is upgrading from cs4 to cs5, I have photoshop files with a lot of layers for website mockups that I will need to open and keep working on those. My concern is, if we upgrade, would I be able to open my old cs4 psd files in cs5 with all the layers intact? are the any risks or anything I should do before I get cs5 installed. We use window pc.
Going from CS4 to CS5 will be no problem with file compatibility. Are you sure you are not upgrading to CS6? CS5 is no longer sold by Adobe.
In CS6 there are some features for advanced editing that will not be seen in CS4. However, if you have maximize compatibility checked you can still view them.
Suggest leaving CS4 on machine so you can have it available if needed. There is no conflicts between programs, although you can only have one running at a time.
Thanks for your reply, yes my company is not purchasing, we are just installing cs5 from another computer in my computer.
