Will CS2 run in SL with Rosetta installed?

    Inquiring minds want to know.

    CS2 does all I need from an image editor, and it seems SL will run ppc apps IF you install Rosetta. Just wondering if the things I've read about CS2 not running are with the standard SL install, which doesn't install Rosetta by default, or will it still not run even if Rosetta is installed.

    Thanks,

    Jeff

    So it looks like technically they at least install and run. How well they run is yet to be seen.

    Excellent, just the kind of assurances I wanted. Will there be bugs? Probably, but since my livelihood doesn't depend on it, I can live with a few glitches here and there. I just didn't want to be forced to upgrade at this point in time.

    Ok I took the plunge.... Installed SL as upgrade over Leopard, including Rosetta. Haven't done any real testing but so far I haven't encountered any problems with Photoshop CS2 (v9.02). I think PS is a little slower to start up, but no big deal.

    How do you install Rosetta anyway? Never used it. Is it free?

    Rosetta is the PPC emulator which is part of OS-X. With Snow Leopard, it installs optionally, or automatically when you first launch a PPC only application.

    How's the quality of it's emulation and Rosetta won't affect other programs that don't need it will it?

    Rosetta only executes when you are running a PPC application. It doesn't run in the background. It takes the PPC code and "translates" it into Intel on-the-fly. I'm not sure how to answer the "quality" question. It's accurate and efficient, if that helps.

    So, bottom line, it doesn't affect any part of the OS, other than the PPC application which needs it.
