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.
Generally, the program installs (with some special steps) and runs. It is fully functionable, with almost no bugs.
What does not
- sometimes crashes when trying to open file using "File > Open"; I am no able to identify, when the problem occures during installation: - on first screen, after clicking "next", a pop-up message opens behind the main window; it is not possible to change the focus so installation process cannot be continued; the only way is just to move the main window at the beginning, before clicking "next"; - when the program is fully installed, just before the end, an error message pop-ups (something about missing routine in some DLL, unfortunately I am no able to publish it not); the only way to have the program installed, is to kill the installer - otherwise, when "ok" button is clicked, the product is removed.
What was not tested
Loads up quite long (few minutes), with many "err:shell:HCR_GetFolderAttributes CR_GetFolderAttributes should be called for simple PIDL's only!" messages. A way to install correctly: After starting up the installator and BEFORE clicking "next", move the main window to the bottom of the screen. Then click "next". A pop-up message shows up, just click "ok". Further steps with standard approach. After the main installation process, an error shows up. DON'T click "ok", just kill wine-preloader using -9 signal (`killall -9 wine-preloader). Now, the programm is fully installed :) Oh, and... I don't know if the activation process is possible - I was using a crack for testing purposes.

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
