Mac Photoshop

Fri Dec 10, 2004 11:41 am

Hey, I know Photoshop is avaliable for Macs...

My Situation/Question:

I am going to be getting a new computer soon. And I am leaning toward a Machintosh iBook or Powerbook. How does the Mac operate with Photoshop and Airliners.net? Are there any options that I will be unable to do with a Mac vs. a IBM? Anything I should be aware of? Anyone here edit photos on macs?

Thanks,

Adam

Well, I think Photoshop is more likely to perform better and work better and do better things and easier on a Mac than in a PC. They ode their success to eachother in some way.

Funny. Photoshop was originally developed for the Mac...

I think you'll be okay.

Photoshop will work just fine. However, more than a few of the popular plugins you can get for PS (for example, Focalblade), are PC only.

I'm doing all my work on an iMac and I do use Photoshop Elements. No problem at all.

P.S.: Your question

Never fear, if you know how to use the full version of Photoshop properly, you won't need any plug-ins.  Big grin

(Had to do that to you Colin. Forgive me.  Smile )

I use photoshop on my 15" powerbook and it works perfectly. I have used it on a PC before and I actually prefer the Mac over the PC. And I'm a PC guy!

Thanks again.

Fantastic.. thanks for the info guys.

I'm looking at an iBook right now and anywhere I can get Photoshop CS for a good price? I was at an educational price where it was like $270 USD. But I thought it was like 800 USD... Confused...  Confused

Students get discounts.  Big grin There really is no diff. between the education version and the normal one...all that's different is price. It's meant to give a break to those that are already paying a lot to learn.
