It took me awhile to figure out why, all of a sudden, PS CS3 would not load for me. I did some searching and found that one culprit could have been the 10.4.10 update, but that wasn't it. Long story short, I eventually discovered it was because I had turned off font smoothing with the following command in Terminal: defaults write -g AppleAntiAliasingThreshold 128 I can't believe I am the first person who has disabled font smoothing and is using PS CS3. But when font smoothing is disabled, PS won't load - it won't even get to the splash screen. Anyone have any idea how to solve this?
