    Does anyone know if Photoshop CS3 bought in the USA will operate on a G5 iMac bought and used in UK.

    I'm running CS3 Web Premium (which includes Photoshop) from the US in the UK without issue. The CS2->CS3 upgrade cost me less USD than it would have GBP and with 2 USD to 1 GBP it's a no brainer.

    I'm using CS3 downloaded from the Adobe US store. My cousin paid for it on his US credit card - saving me about £200. There's no problem using it in the UK. I checked with Adobe beforehand and they said it would be fine, but if I wanted support I'd have to contact Adobe US rather than Adobe UK. If I upgrade I might have to get that from the US as well - I'm not sure if a UK upgrade would work with a US serial number - but obviously that will be cheaper as well, even if I get a CD shipped over.

    That's what they told me as well. Also they mention the language setting would be US english only.

    As opposed to the European version which has a full British English localisation /sarcasm mode off

    :p

    The UK and US versions are identical: they only have US English. Adobe never bother to correctly localise for the UK.
