    How to run two instances of Photoshop simultaneously?

    christianwheel

      Hello,

       

      I have Photoshop CC 2018 which I use for most of my work. But I also have Photoshop CS6 so I can use some of my old plug-ins that are no longer compatible with newer versions of Photoshop.

       

      I'd like to have both open simultaneously so I can easily copy and paste layers back and forth to run plug-ins on without having to close and open Photoshop twice every time I want to make a change to an effect (which takes a good couple of minutes every time!). But when I try to run Photoshop while another version is running it won't start.

       

      I have 64gb of RAM so I certainly have the resources to do it.

       

      Is there a command-line switch or some other way to run multiple instances of Photoshop simultaneously?

       

      Thanks!
