    Photoshop and mac
    Hi,
    I'm new to this forum, because i had long time a pc, but now i want to switch to mac.
    So i have a little question to ask.
    I like to download alot of fonts to use in photoshop or word, and it was easy to install them (just dropped them in the windows/fonts folder), the question is if it is as easy as on pc?
    Thanks, and sorry for the bad english

    Hi, welcome to the forums!

    To install font in Mac OS X its basically the same as in Windows. Except instead of going to Windows/fonts you go to Library/fonts. You still just drag and drop to install.

    Your English perfect by the way!

    If you have a lot of fonts then the free Linotype FontExplorer is a much better way of managing your fonts

    OS/X is easier.
    Mac was the first out with lots of fonts. 1983

    My 128K Mac had plenty of fonts when the IBM-PC had a green screen and one font.

    Hello,

    I am new to Mac-Forums so apologies if I have done anything wrong, this thread seemed the closest to my problem.

    I wonder if anyone can help with a problem between Photoshop 7 and Mac OSX 10.5 (leopard). Yesterday I gave myself a Christmas present of the latest OS system to run on a G4 (Mirror front) 1GHz with 512 RAM. My three main programs are Quark 6, Illustrator 10 and Photoshop 7, after the install of 10.5 I opened Quark and Illustrator no problem but Photoshop 7 wouldn't open, the on-screen message was "An unexpected and unrecoverable problem has occurred because of a program error. Photoshop will now exit."
    Even after re-install of Photoshop 7 the problem remained. The answer I suppose is a later version of Photoshop but times are hard, any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks,
    John
