    Cool Macs for graphics

    Hi, some people use Macs for graphics - Why? What's the difference between Photoshop in Mac vs PC?

    Ahhh, the eternal question!!

    That thread is pretty good, and the argument didn't get too messy (suprised!).

    However regarding specifically Photoshop, there are basically NO differences, apart from a couple of cosmetic unimportant ones (and the ability to use the arrow keys on PC to change the layer blending option, which you can't on a Mac). The only trouble you will get when moving PSD files between Mac and PC is that any type rendered on either platform, and left editable will not be editable, but thats about it (apart from the monitor gamma difference, but that's a perfectionist thing, and I WON'T get into that one, as you can emulate the different conditions on either platform on v6). Solution-rasterise the type before moving it to another platform.

    I use Photoshop 6 on Macs and PCs a hell of a-lot, and can fully vouch that Adobe has made the PSD file completely cross-platform now, so thank-you Adobe (for that at least, not the pathetic offering you call v7 though...and you expect me to upgrade to this, for money......well I will still, but thats not the point!!)
