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.
Looks like evertything works fine so far, I've successfuly run ca. 30 advanced action scripts. This release works much faster under Wine than CS2 and CS3, I would even dare to say it's faster than on real evil Windows if not some clumsines when moving windows around.
What does not
- Integrated file browser (bridge) is slow and uses to much CPU power compared to the Photoshop itself.
- Splashscreen covers all other windows and can't be minimalised.
- This error shows up zillion times in console: "err:shell:HCR_GetFolderAttributes HCR_GetFolderAttributes should be called for simple PIDL's only!". It slows down the startup process, redirecting console output to /dev/null or using WINEDEBUG=-all helps speed up startup, but I'm not sure if it solves the problem completely (bridge is still slow). [Maint. note: fixed in 0.9.58.]

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
