Mac OS X 10.7 (Lion) isn't complete, nor even out yet. We are currently testing and we will provide guidance on compatibility once Mac OS X 10.7 (Lion) is officially released.

Mac OS X Lion developer previews are out for a long time.
Actually Lion is coming in a few hours and you (as pro) should have tried already the latest Photoshop versions.
Anyway its sort time to know.

In case »Actually Lion is coming in a few hours and you (as pro) should have tried already the latest Photoshop versions.« was addressed to Mr.Tranberry:

His statement »We are currently testing and we will provide guidance on compatibility once Mac OS X 10.7 (Lion) is officially released.« would seem to indicate that he has been doing just that.

ok, thanx.
But due to "we are currently testing" we' ll appreciate a general tip of "yes it seems is working" or "it has some problems"...

We'll all know soon enough. Once Lion is released, anytime now, we'll report on our findings. Beta testers are under NDAs. They are not able to report on testing until the NDA is lifted.

So Jeffery, OS X 10.7 Lion is out today. NDA lifted, right? :) What's the word on the CS4s compatibility with Lion?

I'm working almost 2 days with Mac OS X 10.7 Lion and Photoshop (also Illustrator, Indesign, Acrobat, Distiller) CS4 with no problem at all - hope it will remain so.
– Except the droplets of course :(

Yep, same here. No problems with CS4 on Lion. Just make sure to install that Java update!

I have photoshop elements 9 on Mac and I am having issues opening pictures. When I first open the Photoshop I can select and open a picture no problem. If I try to open another picture, it will not open. I have to shut down Photoshop completely then open it up again in order to open a different picture. The problem only started after updating to Lion

I have problems with dragging layers up and down. Every attempt causes the beach ball effect and the only way out is to force close. Running i7 and Lion..

The crash when moving layers appears to be a bug in Apple's QuickTime code - but we're continuing to investigate.
