OK, CS3 apparently works fine with Leopard.

I've yet to upgrade to CS3 though, does anyone here have info on CS2 and Leopard compatibility?

Apparently you didn't read the link you linked to, or the link to the adobe site.

Products that will require updates for full Leopard compatibility include Adobe Acrobat 8 Professional [aka CS3] and the company’s professional video applications, including Adobe Premiere Pro CS3, After Effects CS3 Professional, Encore CS3 and Soundbooth CS3.

Also from the PDF provided in the link you provided: Older Adobe creative software was not designed
to run on Mac OS X Leopard, so you may experience issues installing and using the software
for which there are no solutions.


And you'll notice all the CS2 apps are marked with "not designed for Leopard."

More and more, it looks like I won't be installing 10.5 for a while yet. I'm reading about problems with InDesign CS3 (though it's anecdotal) and serious issues with Adobe Acrobat and, of course, good ol' Filemaker. These three apps comprise my entire workday, so I'm staying with Tiger 'til they're ready to run with the Leopard.

I have got to believe Adobe is putting the Acrobat 8/Leopard issues on the front burner to be fixed.

PDF workflow is not an option these days.

If I can export to .pdf out of InDesign CD3; I will use it.

Hard to believe that you could use Photoshop 7 from OS X 10.0 through 10.4 but you can't use CS2 apps with 10.5? That's quite a drastic cut off.

Pretty serious cost to step into Leopard for freelancers.

Okay MAVIC, I DID read the link, I should have said MOST of CS3 works fine with Leopard. I never considered the video apps part of CS3 anyway, but whatever...

If anyone is using CS2 with Leopard and has feedback I'd be interested to hear it.

I'll likely see if I can do something weird with an update, like run it on one of my (several) clone drives, and then boot from that and see what works and what doesn't.

Like I said, InDesign CS3, Acrobat Pro, and FileMaker Pro all have to work *flawlessly* (or at least as good as they work now, eh?) for me to upgrade...

[added] Again, though, I will likely not be seeing Leopard's spots for a while:

Adobe said it expects to publish free Leopard compatibility updates for the video applications in December 2007 and for Acrobat 8 Professional and Adobe Reader 8 in January 2008.

I sure wish Apple would hurry up and just buy Adobe and get the ball rolling. Still, their own subsidiary can't keep up, I guess I shouldn't start such pipe dreams flowing.
