Adobe photoshop 5 on windows 7

  Quilljar 21:02 03 Dec 2009

I still have an old copy of Adobe photoshop 5 which worked fine on Windows XP. I cannot seem to get it to work in win 7. Is there anyway that this can be achieved without forking out the full price for a new copy?

Could try using the compatibility mode. Don't know W7 menus. I use PS V5 and V7 on XP. PS V7 is about 80% good when compared to CS3. David

Hi Quilljar. I have the same situation. Photoshop 5 wouldn`t install from a CD. But, if you have access to your old computer, you can try copying the Photoshop file (Program Files ..Adobe .. Photoshop 5.0) onto your new hard drive. I tried that, and it works, kinda. Photoshop now won`t recognize gif, png, or bmp files. It also won`t save my preferences when I exit the program. But it still works with jpg files (that`s good enough for me, most of the time). I`m trying to learn how to allow gifs, etc to work...wish me luck!

him Dryvit,
By coincidence i tried exactly what you sugget a few days ago and it worked for me too. I have only tried jpgs so i cannot say i have had any problems.

thanks and good luck

I think only versions 7 and 8 are compatible.
