    Howdy,
    Just got an Intel iMac, with 1.5g ram (one 1g and a 512mb). I've been running CS2, and have been very disappointed. Previously, I was using a G4. I was expecting the program to run faster, even under Rosetta, but not only has it been slower, InDesign is acting buggy, with crashes, and corrupting files.

    I'm going to get a second 1G stick of ram to see if it's a matched ram issue, but I'm interested if anyone else has had this problem.

    Cheers,
    Kat

    You should probably upgrade to an Intel-native, CS3...

    Adobe Photoshop CS2 is going to be slow on an intel Mac. If you upgrade to CS3 the problems will more than likely go away.

    But just to be safe, download the demo of CS3 and see how well it works... if there are no problems I think you have your solution. If there are problems, post back.

    Cool Beans,
    I just put the new stick of ram in...after I've tested it, I was going to download the demo

    I'll give a heads up after a few days of working at the office.

    Cheers!
