Totally awesome! Installed this on my PowerMac G4 with Mac OS X 10.4.11, and it works perfectly. Adobe CS3 is the highest version that I can install on my setup. Many thanks for posting this!!!

Wow, yes, please! I'm currently trying to find a version to buy on Ebay, with no luck.

I feel that CS4 would be a welcome addition, if it meets the ten years rule.
As Photoshop CS4 is here, it should be fine, but I do not know the release dates of all those suites.
In doubt, it won´t harm to wait somewhat longer.

I also have CS4 Design Premium. Adobe removed it from their website and it is no longer available for download. Would anyone be interested if I uploaded the DVD images? All I see on here is Photoshop CS4.

My HD crashed and I downloaded OS images and iLife apps from here, but I never thought to look here for my Adobe CS rescue. I spent the last 3 days contacting Adobe support, researching, and their support forums only to be chastised for wanting to activate software that I paid $1700 for back in the day! Wish I would have looked here first and saved a ton of time and hassle. If you have a DVD copy of CS3, you will not be able to activate and no one at Adobe can help you. They are no longer offering this non-activation option on their website. The only question I have is what is the difference between "Design Standard" and the "Design Premium" edition that I have?

Works on mac os 10.6 server virtualization on Parallels 14 on a Macbook Pro 2017 with High Sierra. Might wonder why I would desire to run such a setup and it's because I love the old Epson Photo 1660 scanner app but hate using image capture to scan because it's too simple and doesn't do the best preview.

Wonderful! I installed it on my Power Mac G5 with no problems and runs perfectly.

Does anyone have the patch or have a link to the patch that they would be willing to give? I'd like to run this on my 10.6 MacBook, but don't have the patch that would enable the installer to work.

I believe you also need the (Apple) JRE to successfully run the CS3 installers, which Adobe's system requirements never mention.

If you're fully patched on 10.6, that JRE has probably been removed if not disabled from your computer. There's an update on Apple's website to bring it back, even though it's a security nightmare to have.

Fortunately the Java Preferences in the Leopard versions of Mac OS X, when fully patched, allow you to disable any given Apple JRE entirely.

Thanks a bunch! Runs nice in 10.5 as specified.
In 10.6 the installer quits on an error, could be a problem on my side though.
