Adobe Photoshop 7.0 software.
The professional image-editing standard, helps you work more efficiently, explore new creative options, and produce the highest quality images for print, the Web, and anywhere else. Create exceptional imagery with easier access to file data; streamlined Web design; faster, professional-quality photo retouching; and more.
All features work, from what I can see - saving, opening, filters, save for web, file browser (Adobe Bridge early version), etc.
What does not
Nothing that I can really see - everything works as expected except for two little things!!!
Bug #1: Type tool needs system fonts
You do need to install MS fonts in order for type tool to work... (change below for non-Debian/Ubuntu distros)
sudo apt-get install --reinstall ttf-mscorefonts-installer
PLEASE READ: However, after installing you can remove the following from where the fonts are saved, otherwise your in-browser font displaying (like Chrome) will get messed up:
rm -rf Arial*
rm -rf Times*
To completely remove MSFT fonts if uninstalling Photoshop, just do:
sudo apt-get remove ttf-mscorefonts-installer
Also, you may have to convert OpenType to TrueType fonts in order for Photoshop to recognize it, since I don't believe Linux likes OpenType (even though Photoshop 7.0 can support OT)
If you minimize Photoshop, upon maximizing palettes will be gone. Closing/restarting Photoshop is fastest way to get palettes back in position.
WORKAROUND: Don't minimize (leave up).

When you want to use the clone tool, you'll find the following useful:
ALT-Click is intercepted by most window managers and used as the "move window", so you have to either use shift-alt-click instead, or configure your window manager to use something else for "move window". For instance, on Ubuntu, do System / Windows / Movement Key, and pick "Super" instead of "Alt". See also the codeweavers FAQ.
Thanks to earther for the following email:
I was having problems with the Photoshop 7 ALT-Click keybinding in a new Debian install running Compiz. I did the standard window manager tweak but it still didn't work properly. Then I discovered an ALT-Click keybinding in the Compiz Window Management > Move Window > Initiate Window Move settings. I changed it to 'super' like in Gnome window management and voila, it seemed to get it working again in Photoshop. You might want to add that bit of info to the clone tool info on the Photoshop 7 page. earther
