    I've been looking everywhere but can't find an answer. Does anybody know if
    Photoshop 5.5 is compatible with Windows 7?

    Thanks a lot.

    You needed 6.0.1 for XP so I doubt if 5.5 works with W7.

    Ask on rec.photo.digital, but be prepared for trolls, trolls, and more
    trolls.

    Depends on what you call compatible. The Aero inter face of windows 7 will
    only work with applications that where written to use it That said many
    older applications will work fully in Win 7 but the graphics interface will
    revert to classic view as was in Win 98. I Dont have %.5 to try but I do
    have Paint shop pro from 7 to X3 Bar X1 working fine so I expect PS will
    too.

    I am running Paint Shop Pro 5.03, which predates Windows 2000, on my 64
    bit Windows 7 with no problem. I am using Windows Classic graphics
    throughout the system, so I don't know about interacting with Aero.

    My 4.01 would be if Adobe didn't use a shitty 16bit installer. 4.01
    works perfectly on XP so don't know why the other person claims you need
    v6.x for even XP.

    If that's true then why does my PS 4.01 work perfectly on XP? It won't
    install to 64bit OS though due to having a 16bit installer.

    If it doesn't just use GIMP for free, 95% the same thing as PS. I use PS
    4.01 on XP but use GIMP on Vista and Win7. I'm not spending big bucks
    for PS again. I find more useful photo tools in my Dynamic Photo HDR
    v4.0 than PS which cost me only $49.99. PS is for pro printshops more
    than photographers and there are other apps for photographers for a lot
    less that you can buy or even download for free. I only ever bougth
    Photoshop because I was studying Desktop Publishing at the time and got
    the student's price.

    No app needs aero compat to be able to work on Win7 or Vista even with
    aero enabled. I have plenty of apps that predate aero that run as they
    always did with aero enabled. Windows draws the app frame borders and
    not the app itself unless it's some app that runs full screen and has
    its own customized GUI. Problem with some older apps is they have 16bit
    code or installers which you can't use on 64bit OS.

    Can't speak for photoshop, but I've got programs from the late 90's
    that work fine on 64 bit Windows 7 complete with aero effects. I had a
    little trouble installing them properly at first, so I did it this
    way.

    Type run in the startup box. Click on run and type msconfig. Click OK.
    Go to the startup tab and uncheck everything including your virus
    checker. Reboot. Install your programs. Right click on the programs.
    Click Properties. Click compatibilities. Set programs to run in
    windows 95 mode. This should work on any non 16 bit programs. Most of
    those were written prior to 1995. I believe Adobe 5.5 is from 1999.

    Don't forget to type run and msconfig and go back into the startup tab
    and put the check mark back for your virus checker and any other
    programs you want in startup mode when you reboot.

    Let us know if it works.

    I find that Photoshop 5.0 works fine with Win 7. It does not install into
    the registry but just works directly.
