This DVD may be used to install the English, French or Spanish flavour of Photoshop 11
as 30 day trial or with a valid serial.
To my knowledge, activation servers for CS4 are still online,
so be sure brain is engaged before taking action. Big smile

--->Strange that the DL was dropped by the Internet Archive<---

Internet Archive also respond to take-down notices in certain circumstances.

I´m rather sure I stored Photoshop 11 locally, I´ll have a look.
Same for CS4, CS5 and CS6, but the latter will have a good sit on the waiting bench still. Wink

Strange that the DL was dropped by the Internet Archive, most likely only the link is not available for us regular folks.

Doesn't seem like's link works anymore. Sad Nor Adobe's previous link for CS4 downloads.
Adobe's page's downloads don't seem archived, either. At least trying to get Photoshop CS4 from leads to nothing.

Edit: It seems Adobe doesn't want people accessing any of their older versions now, as they also removed downloads for CS5. They literally threw the middle finger at anyone wanting an option that isn't subscription-based, even if they have the serials for it.

Also - THIS WORKS FINE on a G4. Have installed and Used on PowerBook 1.67GHz, MDD and even a Dual Audio DP 533MHz with no problems. Benefits from CoreImage card, but will run fine without it.

Thanks for posting the Adobe link, Henryk!
It may be wise to grab CS4 (and CS5/6) while that´s possible, with CC being the only purchasable one.

On my side, the Photoshop CS4 installer does work up to 10.11 El Capitan.
Sierra and above are using a new security scheme breaking something the installer needs, seemingly.
