Adobe Photoshop

Photoshop CC 2017 was released on 2 November 2016. It introduced a new template selector when creating new documents, the ability to search for tools, panels and help articles for Photoshop, support for SVG OpenType fonts and other small improvements. In December 2016, a minor update was released to include support for the MacBook Pro Touch Bar.

Selected Test Results

What works

Installation will work fine until the end, but sometimes it will get stuck with "Opening Photoshop" text in the end, you can safely end the set-up.exe process and start using photoshop. You can re-enable internet after installation.
Photoshop will launch fine out of the box and will not give any error messages at the start.
Menu and submenu items works normally.
New file dialog works normally, i did not see any glitch, creating a new file and opening an existing file, quick export, export as features work normally,
Main toolbar and toolbar at upper part tools works normally. Text tool works normally.
Color, swatches, character, paragraph, history, properties, adjustments, layers, channels, paths, histogram, navigator, tool presets, notes, layer comps panels work normally.
3D basic things and timeline work but not extensively tested.
Preferences window and all settings and buttons inside looks normal.
Everything those has been tested seems stable (except read "what doesn't work" section), used it for a while.

What does not

Export -> Save for Web (Legacy) has a bug on mouseover, it disables the dialogbox, if you use keyboard to change settings and press save button with keyboard, it works, interestingly if you task switch to another app, dialog gets enabled, focusing it again disables it again.
Settings -> UI Scaling causes some elements like comboboxes to be rendered incorrectly and difficult to use.
Libraries panel did not work, it has this message: Something went wrong. More info (link).
Rarely CEPHtmlEngine crashes with a crash dialog, but it does not affect photoshop, you can rename CEPHtmlEngine.exe to something else and not see it again, but it also disables some features like modern new file dialog.
If you install dxvk or vkd3d, program will not properly work and even crash photoshop sometimes, and some features will be broken, those libraries still have unimplemented features photoshop uses as of date of this test, so don't install them, just stick with wine default d3d11.


Photoshop can be installed when internet access is offline or blocked (by a firewall or firejail), otherwise it will tell you to update your browser to internet explorer 11 which i did not test.

Eventhough photoshop can be used like that, you would want to have all fonts, font smoothing adobe type manager and gdi plus to render those fonts identically as a real windows:

winetricks -q allfonts fontsmooth=rgb gdiplus atmlib

Some features like Liquify filter requires vc runtime otherwise they would not work or crash, those can be installed with:

winetricks -q vcrun2008 vcrun2010 vcrun2012 vcrun2013 vcrun2022

Another suggestion by some testers which i am not sure if it is used or not, but doesn't hurt to install them:

winetricks -q msxml3 msxml6

What was not tested

Most filters, detailed settings for filters, detailed 3D and video rendering.

Plugins and extensions.

Creative Cloud app, Bridge and other external apps.

Mostly things that is outside of what works section.

Hardware tested


  • GPU: AMD
  • Driver: open source

trying on Ubuntu 20.04.3 LTS

If I try "File>New" or "File> Export as", the pop up appears but its blank.

I can do "File>Open" and "File>Save" without any problems.

Is there any additional components I should be adding to Wine to be able to see the missing pop ups?

I have the DirectX packages etc for gaming but not sure what I'm missing
