I currently use CS Photoshop 5.1 on Mac. I have just upgraded to Yosemite 10.1.0. In order to run CS Photoshop 5.1 I need to downgrade to Java 6. Is this safe, or will I become exposed to security risks?
Photoshop does not use any external java it has it own "ScriptingSupport" plug-in, Some thitd Party plug-in and perhaps Adobe installer may use an external Java. I don't use a Mac, The latest Java I have on Windows is version 8 there are security issues in prior versions.
