What works

All of the editor tools work (see below) though buggy.

Text tool causes the application to hang, but eventually recovers (within about fifteen seconds) and works fine.

Pretty much everything that is not listed in "What does not work."


What does not

Organizer file import box is very buggy and usually will not work. The only real way to get photos into the organizer is to constantly back up and restore from a CD or the hard drive.

Photomerge(r) panorama causes application to hang indefinitely.

The other Photomerge(r) options usually hang indefinitely at some point while working on them.


What was not tested

Any of the more obscure organizer features (since I could not import photos into it in the first place).
Note that I did not test every filter and every option, just a sampling. I tested one or two of everything that works in the same basic way, so it should be fine.
The share options were not tested very extensively. At least one of the options "E-mail attachment" causes the application to hang indefinitely in the editor, but appeared to work very well in the organizer.

Additional Comments

There is lots of flickering when switching tools and moving around, but ultimately it only causes a slight lag. The program can be used occasionally when you need it and have a little patience or as a backup when GIMP will not work. Overall, I am very impressed with the performance of this program under wine. Though it was quite a hassle to get working initially (next paragraph). Use the same steps as the Hardy 1.1.1 test to get it installed, and rename your adobe_registration.dll as mentioned in the comments below.
