Apparently, CS2 apps will have problems running under Leopard, and Adobe won't be patching it to make it work.
Actually, given that folks have been using them throughout the beta period and the past 48 hours of the official release with no reported issues, I'd wager CS2 apps will work fine -- it's just that Adobe isn't supporting them ... and they're trying to scare customers into upgrading to CS3.
I installed Leopard on a G4 17" 1Ghz PowerBook. I haven't used my Adobe & Macromedia programs much but I was able to open all of them, create new files and open saved ones. Working well so far.
Using CS2 & Studio 8.
I figure I'll wait a week before installing on my main G5 Tower...just incase...lol.
I've only had a problem with Photoshop CS3 Extended. When I quit the application I see the message "application quit unexpectedly" and have the option to report the incident to Apple. Snippet of which is below. I don't know whether to try to reinstall Photoshop - which is a little tricky I understand as it always states that it is already installed - or am I supposed to wait for an update? Trash my preferences etc?

I was running 10.4.10 and ran the upgrade option to Leopard yesterday. I thought this was the most likely way to retain CS2 functionality. From CS2 suite: Photoshop, InDesign, Illustrator, GoLive, the Bridge, and Dreamweaver 8 all opened. Photoshop gave me a "couldn't synch color settings due to program error" warning, but it started up. I was able to create and save at least a cursory file in each of these programs. I'll do a little more work with photoshop, illustrator and indesign this week. I've kept my 10.4.10 bootable backup just in case....
Another computer in my house is not working well with CS2 on Leopard, but we're trying again. That computer is a dual-G5 which got a full wipe-and-install. The CS2 installation CDs are, uh, problematic. Not that Adobe cares, but I'm less than impressed....I bought CS2 from them earlier this year and will be none too pleased if I have to upgrade so $$$oon. I mean, I already have to deal with very slow CS2 operation on my otherwise decent and well-loved laptop.
By the way, neither of these Macs is Intel-based.
The best advice anyone can give you is to make a bootable backup and verify it before you try to upgrade.
Flash 8, Dreamweaver 8 is not working on my Mac for the time being.
I think the difference may be between doing an "Upgrade" or and "Archive and install."
In the upgrade, everything stays in place and Leopard just leaves it, whereas in the archive method, apparently not everything is moved.
I did the "Archive and install" with apparently did not move the pref files and other Studio 8 files over.
The "Upgrade" option may resolve this.
Installed Leopard yesterday (upgrade). No problems except with Indesign CS3. Every attempt to open it leads to a crash.
Have reverted to Indesign CS2, which seems to be working fine (have printed to an Epson RX620, to answer an earlier question).
Could survive with InDesign CS2 if it was able to open all the documents that are presently InDesign CS3. It opens some with no difficulty, but for others it complains that it lacks the necessary plugins and recommends either upgrading my existing plugins or upgrading to the latest version of InDesign.
I don't produce fantastically complicated Documents and don't use any 3rd party plugins. It's hard to see why some documents are opening fine while others can't. Any suggestions?

Can anyone confirm that these products install and work properly. I really want to upgrade but it's not an option if these programs don't work.
CS3 is the ONLY Adobe supported product for Leopard. Adobe has a statement on their site that says that CS2 programs were not built for Leopard and will NOT be updated for it.
Photoshop 7.0.1 won't even open, it crashes right away. Indesign 2.0.1 will start, but I don't know if it will work properly. ImageReady 7.0.1 won't open. Illustrator 10.0.3 opens but unknown if it functions.
I'm now going to figure out how to go back to Tiger because I can't afford to upgrade all my software.
This *****, $130 down the crapper.
I'm really disappointed in Apple, it's acting more and more like Windoze all the time.
I have done a clean install (erase & install) of Leopard on a MacBookPro (brand new) and tried to install Adobe CS3 - all options. It gives an error installing the most important ones (Photoshop, Dreamweaver, Acrobat). Now I've already uninstalled the whole bunch, but maybe there's another sollution? re-install when it gives that error? Anybody got the same issues here? Thnx for you help,
