    Photoshop 7
    I have a legit copy of Photoshop 7 and wondered if I can get it to work with a MacBook Leopard operating system ... is it just a matter of updating the software from the Adobe website, or will it just not work?

    Specs:
    20" Intel iMac 2.4 Ghz/3G Ram/320HD, Snow Leopard. PBook G4, 1.5Ghz/1.5 Ram/250 HD, Leopard 10.5.6.
    No, sadly it just will not work. Adobe never needed to upgrade it, because CS3 came out.

    I have put this disc on ebay for sale, as I am sure that it was only loaded on the one Mac that I bought second hand from my boss a few years ago.

    That Mac is no longer in operation, so I wondered what issues a buyer might encounter with the Photoshop disc ... it has the original serial/case and only loaded on the 2 machines I have mentioned.

    I don't think there will be any issues with regard to install, but installing on more than one machine is frowned upon normally.
    Personally I don't see why, but it's law apparently.

    Okay, so will my recently found copy of Illustrator 10 work on a modern MacBook?

    Specs:
    Mid-2012 MBP (16GB, 1TB HD), Monoprice 24-inch second monitor, iPhone 5s 32GB, iPad Air 2 64GB
    I can't personally test this for you, but basically "probably not."

    Illustrator 10 is at least FIVE versions behind the current edition, which means it's at least eight years old now.

    How much eight-year-old un-updated software do you think runs on modern Macs?

    Answer: not a lot.

    Buy CS5 or at the very least CS3 (the first good CS version IMO) for working on any modern Mac.
