No, CS2 was written for PowerPC systems, and Yosemite and El Capitan only run on Intel based systems.
I don't believe you understood my question. My iMac and Powerbook pro both run intel based processors. THe operating system is 10.8.5 Mountain Lion. MAC has assured me my MACS will run fine on Yosemite and/or ElCapitan. My question is will Adobe Creative Suite Premium run on these MAC operating systems or will they lose functionality?
unfortunately, CS2 Apps won't run on El Capitan
CS2 applications, including Photoshop, were written for Macs with PowerPC CPUs.
OS X 10.11 El Capitan only runs Intel CPU-compatible software, so El Capitan will
not allow CS2 to run or install.
My iMac and Powerbook pro both run intel based processors. THe operating system is 10.8.5 Mountain Lion.
Are you saying that you're running CS2 on OS X 10.8.5?
That's not possible in a native Mac environment (unless you're running the Windows version in Parallels or Bootcamp on the Mac)..
CS2 is a PowerPC application designed to run on Macs with PowerPC processors. When Apple switched to Intel processors, Apple briefly provided a translator called "Rosetta" to run PowerPC apps on Intel-based Macs.
Rosetta has not been included nor supported since OS X 10.7 "Lion". So PowerPC apps (including CS2) will not run on OS X 10.7 onwards.
MY HUGEST APOLOGIES!!!! I was typing and not thinking. I have CS5 on both MACS. But question is the same. Can I upgrade my MAC OS to Yosemite or El Capitan and still have the Adobe Suite function? AGAIN, So sorry for my lapse.
