I can not use Photoshop 5.5 completely with Tiger 10.4.6 on PowerBook G4 15". Some features on the palette, such ac the cropping tool is simply not available. I have re-installed Photoshop 5.5, but no luck. Photoshop 5.5 works fine under 10.4.6 in Pismo with G4 upgrade. What gives?
Thanks in advance to anybody who could help...

PowerBook G4 15" 1.67GHz   Mac OS X (10.4.6)   1GB RAM

    Welcome to Apple Discussions!

    Curious, did you install Photoshop while booted into Mac OS 9 on the Pismo?

    I had installed Photoshop before I upgraded to Mac OS X. So, YES, I did install it while booted into Mac OS9 on the Pismo.
    Thanks for responding...

    It sounds like it is time to upgrade to Photoshop 7 or later. If it doesn't work properly in Classic, and you are finding your Pismo is becoming unworkable, either replacing it with another Pismo or Mac OS 9 booting machine is advisable, or upgrading to a Mac OS X native version of the software is advisable.

    Here's my FAQ on migrating from 9 to X:

    I am sorry for not being clear earlier. Photoshop 5.5 works fine on Pismo with the same operating system that is installed on the Powerbook (10.4.6). However, it does not work on the Powerbook G4 1.67GHz even though everything seems to be the same. I guess it is time to give up on Photoshop 5.5.
    Thanks for your answer anyway.

    What a brody was saying is that Photoshop 5.5 is a Classic app, not an OSX one, and an old Classic at that. There were Classic versions 6 & 7 after that, 7 also being the first OSX version.

    You might need some updating or repair on your Classic system on the new Powerbook, but you are really better off getting an OSX version of Photoshop, latest is CS2 (v9) if you use it enough.
