    Will Photoshop and Premier work?
    I've used Photoshop Elements 3.0 and Premier 1.0 on my windows computer, will they work on a Mac? Or is a different format needed?

    Thanks

    Hi dirty1thirdee! I don't know who mentioned this somewhere here but it seems Adobe has a cross-platofrm exchange program for certain applications so you could actually run them on the Mac instead.

    I know that Adobe had dropped Mac development for Premiere a few years ago when Apple announced Final Cut but Adobe announced recently Premiere for Mac is making a comeback.

    Specs:
    13" macbook C2D; 24" Imac, 8GB Iphone
    As a general rule of thumb pc apps wont have universal disks
    only in a few exceptions, games such as a WOW
    and most apps are .exe

    hope this helps

    Be aware that the current software you have will not work.

    Apple Macs require Apple Mac software.

    Thanks. In that case, I'll just get a new copy of PS and Premiere, or instead of Premiere I might try Final Cut. How does it compare?

    Well, that is a very expensive alternative. I have used both and I prefer Final Cut Pro.
    Still, if you already have Adobe Premier, then you may want to consider sticking with Windows for that. Same goes for how much other software you have that is Windows only.
    Switching could end up being quite and expensive time for you. :black:

    My windows machine is waaaaaaaaay too slow to run Premiere. It is choppy, crashes all the time, etc, so I am going to have to get a video editing program for my mac.
