This app works with: QEMU

The final version of Photoshop to run under a classic Mac OS (9.1+). Carbonized to run native on Classic & PPC Mac OS X systems.

A note about the downloads available from above:

The Adobe Photoshop 7.0.1 update fixes a number of problems discovered after Photoshop 7.0 was released.

The most significant fixes in the 7.0.1 release include the following:

Adobe Photoshop 7.0 (trial version) Download: (345 Mb)

Other Adobe Photoshop Versions: 0.63 (pre-Adobe) | Pre-release | 1.0.7 | 1.0.8 LE | 2.0.1 | 2.5.1 | 2.5.1 LE | 3.0 & 3.0.5 | 3.0.5 LE | 4.0 | 5.0 | 5.0 LE | 5.5 | 6.0 | 8.0 (CS1) | 9.0 (CS2) | 10.0 (CS3) | 11.0 (CS4)

Architecture: PPC (Carbonized)

Adobe lists the minimum Macintosh requirements as any PowerPC G3 or G4 processor, 128MB of RAM, an 8-bit video card, and a monitor set to 800x600 pixel resolution. Photoshop also requires Mac OS 9.1 or later

Still, it seems awkward to drop GIF support in 2002

I don't think that can be correct. But the only Ps v7.0.1 I have currently installed is on a Windows box, not Mac.

The Windows version opens and can save to GIF without a problem. The gif filter for this version is located in Plug-Ins > Adobe Photoshop Only > File Formats. I don't know if its the same for the Mac version.

I won't be able to sleep now, until I find out Wink

[Edit] I found that I have Ps 7.0.1 installed on an old iBook G4. No problem with GIF files, opening or saving. Has the GIF filter in same location as in the Windows version. Animated gif's throw up a warning about only single frames can be saved out, but also open up.

It must have been the two beers Wink

[Edit] Or... the gif wasn't a gif. Was it the only file with a gif extension you wanted to open?

If you open the gif's data fork in HexEdit it will return "gif89a" in the top most header (if it is a gif file).

Thanks Duality! I was assuming something like that must have been happened. Still, it seems awkward to drop GIF support in 2002 when half the websites were still running on gif images? Anyway, as a word of warning for others ...

There was a period where Adobe was pushing people who wanted to work with GIFs to use Adobe ImageReady. Then Adobe dropped ImageReady and pushed Fireworks after the Macromedia acquisition. Then the support mysteriously came back to Photoshop some time after Adobe abandoned Fireworks.

tl;dr, probably the result of Adobe politics where they want you to use their preferred app of the hour.

Installed this version recently only to discover it can't handle GIF files apparently. Neither can I open them, nor can I save images as gifs. Does anyone know why they dropped support or was it me picking awkward install options after two beers? Smile

I remember a long time ago.. when I had PS CS2 It opened and the splash screen said Adobe Space Monkey and then it said Missing Components Please reinstall Photoshop CS2..

I was able to successfully install and run version 7.0.1 on my Power Macintosh 9600 (OS 9.1 / 576MB RAM / 200 Mhz 604e Processor) with zero issues. So perhaps G3 isn't a full requirement and more of a suggestion? Thanks for the uploads!

  Where is 7.0.1? All I see is 7.0

Right now its only a placeholder for what used to be here & is needing to be restored.

If you go back in the Revisions you may see that both 7.0 & 7.0.1 were once, now long-gone MegaUpload links.

Perhaps someone who managed to get 7.0.1 in the past (or has the CD & can image it) will restore it to this page. In the meantime I'll remove 7.0.1 from the title...

[Edit] Added the 7.0.1 updater to the page.

Is Photoshop 7 better than Photoshop CS..? Photoshop 5.5 sure is, but that won't run in OSX. I plan to download PS7 and try it tomorrow. I hope to God it's better than CS. I would rather be raped by farm animals than us Photoshop CS again.

@Vitoarc, try full CD version

by Vitoarc - 2010, August 20 - 2:24pm

TataMisia, I not only installed it using while using Tiger, but it also runs on 10.4.11. I don't need to run this app in Classic mode even.

As you can see the problem I incurred had nothing to do with the program or your upload.

I do have an old 7100 that I'm going to dust off soon and use it just for games. So I can still be part of this club. Pure. Smile

All clear. Its version for Mac OS 9 / Mac OS X.
You try install or run it under Mac OS X.
Try install and run under Pure Mac OS 9

Well Mike, thanks to your last post I realized that I indeed had a peculiar problem, not typical. I went into my library Preferences and found a preference named "automator.IconCreatorv2.0.plist" that was associated with Automator, the app that was seizing control of the Photoshop app. This preference file was linked to a script I had downloaded a few years back called "IconCreator".

I deleted the automator.IconCreatorv2.0.plist file and then to test my theory, I went into "Get Info" for the Photoshop icon and removed the .app extension that I had manually appended previously. After removing the .app, the Photoshop icon remained un-generic looking and in fact it appeared the way it should (I had performed this test yesterday with no success, but that's because the Automator preference file had not been deleted yet). I then clicked the icon and Photoshop launched as it should. Smile

Summary: The problem was caused by a plist file created for Automator, for a script that is used used for creating icons. Once I deleted the plist file the problem went away. I've also deleted the script, which I never use anyway. I use "Micon" to create specialized icons which is a GUI, not a script.

So, not really weird, but at least the mystery has been solved. All I needed to know was what I was seeing was an anomaly, which your post indicated was the case, and then I homed in on the likely culprit: preference files!

A lot of issues through the years have been solved by deleting rogue preference files. It should be so easy with a PC! Smile

Weird, I never struck that issue. I didn't need the ".app" exension on the Vise installer program, it was recognized correctly by OS X here.

Main thing tho' is you got it working OK in the end.

Vitoarc's picture
by Vitoarc - 2010, August 19 - 4:22pm

Well Mike thanks for that. I'm pretty sure, now that I got Photoshop to launch, is that Automator was the automatic default app assigned to the Photoshop icon by OSX. The Photshop icon was showing up as generic (just plain white), therefore OSX did not recognize Photoshop as an application but as a script. I don't launch Automator on log in and I never assigned Automator to Photoshop "open with".

Once I went into "Get Info" on the Photoshop icon, I appended the icon with ".app" under "Name & Extension" and that did the trick. For some reason, with this install, the icon did not read "Photoshop" but just read "Photoshop 7.0.1" Once I appended the icon the problem was solved.

Using Classic, I can't launch it. It wants to open with Automator. I don't have SheepShaver installed but Classic is 9.2 so I don't think SS will work anyway. Can I get this to run app on my G4?

You perhaps have "Automator" turned on at computer boot-up (or at the time you tried to install this).

On 10.4.x, Automator unless it is actually running, does not "want to" take over such tasks such as handling hybrid (Classic PPC/OSX PPC) apps without a ".app" suffix.

If Automator wasn't running at the time it wouldn't try to take over. The downloaded and expanded Installer would have just "worked", and allowed you to install this program.

You have a PPC G4? It might be possible to locate a PPC version of Sheepshaver somewhere...? Tho' I don't think shouldn't be necessary to run SheepShaver on PPC Macs if your primary OS is Mac OS X with Classic support. Or even better, able to boot native into a Classic OS.

An alternative, its possible with a PPC Mac, to ditch Mac OS X entirely with a PPC variant of Linux (Yellow Dog). Then, if you need to run Mac progs (Mac OS 8.6 - OS X 10.4), you can run MOL "Mac On Linux" tho' MOL hasn't evolved much (if at all) since Mac went Intel.

IMOH (layman's) experiences with Yellow Dog is that the PPC side seemed speedy in comparison to running a Mac OS on the same equipment - downside - incompatibility with Linux Intel-only apps, perhaps understandable considering the architecture.

OK I got it to work. After installation, the icon read "Adobe Photoshop 7.01" in the information window. I appended the name with ".app" and the icon then showed up properly, and I was able to launch the program.

Before doing this I even ran Disk Warrior but that did not take care of this issue. At least it's working now.

If you can open archive and run install app - upload was good. Something goes wrong in install time (IMHO).

After the install, the Photoshop App Icon shows up incorrectly. The icon has "app" attached to it, but there is no memory management attached to the icon when previewed under "information". That's why it wants to launch in Automator, because it appears the app is corrupt. I tried both 7.0 install and 7.0.1 and same thing-- can't launch the PS application.

I rebuild the desktop just to be sure. I've also tried to install 4 different times, with the same result. I'm not sure what to try next...

Maybe the upload is not good? It would be good for someone else who has downloaded this app to chime in here and report if they had success or not.
