Touch is an application designed to work on current tablets - it cannot handle large images, can only handle a few layers, can only read and write a few file formats, and does not have most of the tools or adjustments found in Photoshop. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 22.214.171.124 (talk) 19:48, 2 September 2014 (UTC)
C++ citation dubious
The citation for the use of C++ as the development language references a forum message where someone with no obvious connection with Adobe responded to a question with the claim - itself having no provenance. Should be removed or referenced to a stronger source. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 126.96.36.199 (talk) 18:49, 10 July 2012 (UTC)
- I verified your claim and your concern is indeed well-placed. The source in question is not approved by Wikipedia:Verifiability § Self-published sources. I will remove the claim immediately.
Photoshop programming languages used in it development
Can someone with write access please add Objective-C to Programming language used Source: http://blogs.adobe.com/jnack/2008/04/photoshop_lightroom_and_adobes_64-bit_road.html — Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.8.131.52 (talk) 00:43, 10 August 2012 (UTC)
- I am afraid your source does not say such a thing. It says:
We began training our engineers to rewrite code in Objective C (instead of C++)
- Now, whether they have actually released a version of Photoshop that is (at least in part) written in Objective C is yet to be verified.
- Hi Codename Lisa
To support 64 bit architecture on OS X, Photoshop CS5 had to be rewritten from the ground up using Cocoa framework (which uses Objective-C language), porting from legacy Carbon framework (based on Toolbox framework written in C/C++ for Mac OS Classic)
- Photoshop on Windows & Mac still uses C++, I'm not contesting that!!! I'm just asking for Objective-C to be added
- The likelihood Photoshop is written in multiple languages
quote|This means that 64-bit Mac apps need to be written to use Cocoa (as Lightroom is) instead of Carbon.

- Hi again
- Quick questions: Do we have any 64-bit version of Adobe Photoshop running on Mac? If yes, since which release?
- Yes, since Photoshop CS5.
- Photoshop CS5 can run in 32-Bit mode or 64-bit mode, Photoshop CS6 dropped support for 32-Bit on Mac OS X.

All i said was Objective-C was used (along side C++) and it should be credited , Adobe themselfs said "Photoshop CS5 is rewritten from the ground up as a 64 bit application" rewritten a far stronger term then refactored (but i'm sure your correct since your Chris Cox at Adobe. so i concede ) source: http://www.adobepress.com/articles/article.asp?p=1582934 — Preceding unsigned comment added by 18.104.22.168 (talk) 23:39, 26 February 2015 (UTC)
This section can be deleted, i agree Photoshop is 99% C++ application, would love to hear more facts from Adobe source
Photoshop CS6 for Mac require Mac OS X 10.6.x or newer
- Mac OS X 10.5.8 was the mini-requirement for CS5 not CS6

"CS6 brings the "straighten" tool to Photoshop" - does it? I've been using that from the ruler tool of CS5 for a while. Could someone clarify this? Otherwise it's worth a change methinks. --Tom dl (talk) 00:26, 17 August 2012 (UTC)
The link to Russell Brown goes to Russell Leslie Brown, the Scottish Labour Party Politician. I think they were really referring to Russell Preston Brown (I.e. Russell Brown Show) .... ? There is no page for Russell Preston Brown, though.
The version history in the current revision all in all only holds one single sentence for all the Photoshop versions prior to CS1. That is not much. The section should probably summarize the entire version history of PS, not just focus on CS1 - CS6. – Acdx (talk) 09:28, 11 October 2012 (UTC)
Don't forget that there is a separate page http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adobe_Photoshop_version_history for the version history. This main page really should link to that instead of duplicating information. <can't sign because wikipedia doesn't let people who know what they're talking about sign in anymore > — Preceding unsigned comment added by 126.96.36.199 (talk) 19:39, 2 September 2014 (UTC)
I suggest adding sentence "The last available version of photoshop is ___, released in ____." in main (first) paragraph. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.8.131.52 (talk) 18:44, 5 April 2013 (UTC)
Scott Bakula image
This image looks unnecessary and inappropriate for this article. I'm not sure if it qualifies as vandalism, but it seems like it's more about the self-promotion of the "random man" than about Adobe Photoshop. Thoughts, anyone? Wikipedian77 (talk) 17:26, 30 May 2013 (UTC)
"Similar to the content-aware tool, the puppet warp tool reveals Photoshop’s intelligence..." This sounds like marketing collateral.

is it possible to download at free cost?
Photoshop for Solaris and IRIX
Hi, Photoshop was available for Unix operating systems Solaris and Irix in the '90s, version 3.0.1 is named. (An Adobe employee says so in the forum at https://forums.adobe.com/thread/1555315?start=0&tstart=0). It would be nice to learn more about platforms supported in the past. Has anyone reputable sources, maybe some book to reference?--220.127.116.11 (talk) 17:16, 24 November 2015 (UTC)
