View Full Version : Photoshop with Apple Bootcamp

11-14-2006, 07:42 AM
If this has been covered here, I apologize... any link would be great. Has anyone used Photoshop CS2 with Bootcamp and Windows XP and what are your thoughts? Noticibly different than CS2 running in Rosetta? Is it solid? Reliable? I need to get CS2, but I'm on a 13inchMacbook (2gb ram) and not sure which way to go. I'd love to natively run PS and I can't wait for the Universal Binary CS3. Thanks!

I have used Photoshop CS2 with Bootcamp on XP and haven't had any problems yet. There's a good article at

See the performance test in the end.

quote "If there's a Windows version of an application that you're running and no Intel-optimized Mac version, you'll probably get much better performance on the same computer running the Windows version via Boot Camp."

Hope it helps
