    Question ibook.CS3 question
    So my question is about CS3, but its also about the computer to, so I think this is an appropriate section.

    Anyways...I have an Ibook G3 along with Photoshop CS3. I loaded CS3 fine and it loads and opens with no problem, but my dilemma comes into play when I start doing things.

    When I try and open a photo in photoshop, (JPEG or CR2 RAW files) the application quits and I get "Photoshop CS3 has quit unexpectedly"

    Why does this keep happening? According to the Adobe website, CS3 technically isn't supposed to run on G3 processors, but I have heard and seen people running it on machines identical to mine.

    I bought this computer specifically to edit photos when I cant get to my home machine. Help me out!

    Ibook G3 800 MHz 256 Ram 30gb

    Thank you for any and all help.

    I think 256MB is too little for CS3.

    So if I get like a 512, do you think that would solve my problems?

    I don't know how well 512MB will work. Spring for the maximum that iBook can take.

    If I'm not mistaken...I think 512 IS the maximum...

    Please correct me if I am wrong, which I hope I am.

    a G4 and 1 GB of RAM is recommended so seems you might be out of luck to run it smoothly or at all.
