    Re: Photoshop 4 and Windows XP

    Ho,

    It would depend greatly on how they use the package. I used more loosely because most people don't use the many of the advanced lab featured like color profiles etc.

    Paint Shop Pro comes to mind as something that does "more than 4.0". I would still upgrade to Photoshop 7 or CS if I were M_Holden. I was just pointing out that Photoshop 4.0 is very limited by todays standards. I couldn't imagine how much of my day would be wasted if I had to do many things the old way. Think back to something as simple as adding rounded corners in PS4 or Drop shadows. Now you just make a clipping path with the rounded rectangle tool or use a layer style.

    Kids today have it so easy! :)

    Keep in mind that there are now low cost image editing packages that will
    do more than Photoshop 4.




    Can you name one, and give an example of "more"?

    M_Holden,

    Keep in mind that there are now low cost image editing packages that will do more than Photoshop 4. Depending on the type of work you do you may want to upgrade to Photoshop 7 now if you can find stores that will upgrade you to CS for free when it comes out. The reason I say this is because CS requires activation and it would seem that you use software for an extended amount of time. By purchasing 7.o you are guaranteed to have a version that doesn't require activation with the added bonus of an upgrade to CS. This would allow you to learn the newer menus, give you image ready and save for web features, Layer styles (saves a lot of time , and space, when it comes to file sizes).

    I can do thing is PS 7 in 2 or 3 minutes that took 20 or 30 minutes in PS 4. If you use Photoshop on a daily basis you really should upgrade.

    i've heard from others here that 4 will run as long as you have the 4.01 patch.

    You can try it but I wouldn't count on anything. PS 4 was released while
    Windows 3.1 was still a mainstream operating system.

    Best to start saving your pennies for upgrades.

    Just tried it out on my machine. Photoshop 4.01 seems to be running fine under Windows XP Pro. Not a problem.

    Photoshop 4 and Windows XP

    The time is coming for a new machine. It will be per loaded with Windows XP Pro. Does any one have input on how Photoshop 4.x works on this OS (if at all)? PS 4 suits my need just fine so I really don't need/want or can afford to upgrade to newer version PS just yet. If I can continue using it ton XP well that would be dandy but I would love to hear any comments on this.
    Thanks
    PS oh the same holds true for Illustrator 8 if anyone is will to address that question too.
