    Didn't know where to post this for best response. Please advise if another area is more appropriate, since I'm new to forum.

    ISSUE: Bought Adobe PhotoDeluxe 2.0 for Mac because I have it installed on a PC (Windows XP Pro) and find it superior in simplicity to most all photo editing programs.

    Tried to install on Mac OS (10.6.7) and got code that it can't be installed "because the classic environment is no longer supported."

    Does this mean the OS version I'm running does not support backward compatibility? If this is the case, Does anyone know of a workaround or app that can allow me to install and use this program.

    Thanks All

    Tom

    Adobe Photoshop Elements 9 is what you should have bought, for $70, or so. It's more powerful than most might need, but it's also highly intuitive and easy to use. There is a fully-functional free trial available on Adobe's site.

    Isn't Photodeluxe from 1999? Where did you even find one to buy?

    PhotoDeluxe 2.0

    Thanks for responding. I bought it on Amazon (storefront: HitsRepeatSoftware) for $8.00. They specialized in old software.

    I tried Elements a few years back and was so overwhelmed by all the functions and complexity (for me) that I never developed an interest in it. I had used PhotoDeluxe for many years.

    I will try the Elements trial package.

    Thanks,

    Tom

    You did not purchase a 10-year-old version of software before researching it, did you?
