Hi Linda,

You should be able to run CS3 on your new Mac. I have CS3, CS4 and CS5 running on a clean installation of Yosemite. That said, CS3 was not designed and nor extensively tested to run on Yosemite.

Photoshop CC (2014) is the current version of Photoshop designed to run on Yosemite. The cheapest way to get that if you decide you want to upgrade is from here: https://creative.adobe.com/plans/offe...

well, it won't run on my new Mac. A message comes up saying my time has expired. Is there a better way to get Photoshop to work! Monthly fees are not my style!
Thanks, linda

Hi Linda,

Do you have a valid serial #? I don't see any registered products under you Adobe ID (using the email address you've used to sign in here).

If you do have a valid serial # you should be able to enter it to license the software to work beyond the 30-day trial.

Correct. If you have a serial for your CS3, put in the serial # to license it. If you haven't already installed CS3, you can grab it here: http://www.adobe.com/downloads/other-...
