Curious, did you install Photoshop while booted into Mac OS 9 on the Pismo?iMac G5-1.8 (1st Gen)/PB G4 17" 3rd Gen 1.5 Ghz/iMac G4 OS 9/RCN, Mac OS X (10.4.6), EyeTV 200, Olympus C-700, Epson P-R220, iSight, Airport Extreme, 5th Gen iPod
Currently Being ModeratedJun 10, 2006 9:33 PM (in response to a brody)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...PowerBook G4 15" 1.67GHz, Mac OS X (10.4.6), 1GB RAM
Currently Being ModeratedJun 10, 2006 9:41 PM (in response to Sako)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:

Currently Being ModeratedJun 20, 2006 7:19 PM (in response to a brody)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.Pismo G4 500MHz, Mac OS X (10.4.3), 1G RAM
Currently Being ModeratedJun 20, 2006 10:38 PM (in response to SamIsik)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.Quicksilver dual 1.5 gig, Mac OS X (10.4.6)
