CS5 Photoshop incompatible with MacOS Sierra? Should have read the warnings before I upgraded. Does this mean I can never use Photoshop again? (the end of the world) or will an Adobe fix occur in the future?

Older versions like CS5 can run on Sierra if you install the legacy Java Runtime from here: https://support.apple.com/kb/dl1572?locale=en_US

For instructions on installing older versions of Creative Suite on Sierra: https://helpx.adobe.com/creative-cloud/kb/install-creative-suite-mac-os-sierra.html

Printing currently does not work on Sierra for some printers: https://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop/kb/photoshop-and-mac-os-sierra.html A workaround is being investigated.
