Photoshop CS was commercially released in October 2003 as the eighth major version of Photoshop. Photoshop CS increased user control with a reworked file browser augmenting search versatility, sorting and sharing capabilities and the Histogram Palette which monitors changes in the image as they are made to the document. Match Color was also introduced in CS, which reads color data to achieve a uniform expression throughout a series of pictures.
After some local OS and winecfg adaptations, PS works as
All brushes, effects, and rendering (e.g. liquify, lightning effects) functions work.
TLDR; after specific adaptations, PS works as advertised.
What does not
What was not tested
TWAIN (use resident XSANE, which is perfect!)
Addition to "Hardware tested" notification here:
GPU: both Intel and AMD (multiple boxen)
Driver: in both cases open source (nouveau, Xorg)
This install/ update of PS on wine was done though apt and winehq ppa as described on WineHQ pages.
This was a wine stable version install.
Update went well, although, when PS was started, wine...
Reports to update the wine cfg
Asks user to update mono, which happens without issues (if net connection).
ALWAYS backup .wine directory before update (!)
Please note that an upgrade for wine-stable to 8.0 will require significant more storage space. A wine-8.0-stable install will now require ± 1.7 GB! With this in mind, make sure your root partition is large enough (with room to space ;).

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
