Adobe® Photoshop® 9.0.2 Update for Adobe Photoshop CS2 for Mac® OS.
The Adobe Photoshop 9.0.2 update fixes a number of problems discovered after Photoshop CS2 (9.0) was released. The Photoshop 9.0.2 update includes all the fixes contained in the earlier Photoshop 9.0.1 update. Therefore it is not necessary to apply the 9.0.1 update prior to running the 9.0.2 update on Photoshop CS2. [Note: if you previously downloaded and installed an earlier version of the 9.0.2 update and are using a version of Mac OS X prior to 10.4.x, please see the Additional Notes below.]
The most significant fixes in the 9.0.2 release include the following:
- Photoshop no longer crashes when encountering unsupported file types through the Acrobat Touch-up workflow.
- Supported files that incorrectly produced an "unsupported color space" message now open as expected.
- TIFF files with layer data greater than 2GB in size now open correctly.
- A printing issue that could cause banding when using ink jet printers with Mac OS X 10.4 has been resolved.
The most significant fixes in the 9.0.1 release (also included in the 9.0.2 update) include the following:
- Photoshop no longer hangs for several seconds when using painting tools with quick strokes.
- A program error that could appear when mousing over high res doc with Brush Tool has been fixed.
- Documents containing a large number of text layers now open more quickly.
- An error that could cause a crash on launch, or when opening or saving a file, has been addressed.
- TIFF files from certain scanners can now be opened correctly.
- After editing an image in Photoshop CS2 via Acrobat Touchup, the image no longer gets re-positioned.
- XMP metadata from AI & PDF files is now retained in Photoshop
- Slow performance when toggling layer visibility has been fixed.
- Info palette numbers now display and update when moving a curve point in Curves via the cursor keys.
- Problems opening certain TIFF and PSB files greater than 2GB in size have been resolved.
- The Merge to HDR command now functions properly when using high-ASCII characters in user login.
