Panther Photoshop problem and solution
Authored by: ThreeDayMonk on Dec 03, '03 04:28:18AM

After updating to Panther, Photoshop would crash on startup.


  • Photoshop was working under 10.2.8 immediately before upgrading to 10.3
  • Icon bounces a few times, then OS X crash report appears
  • Photoshop would load correctly in another, newly created account


  • Close all programs except Finder
  • Move the Preferences folder (under username/Library) to another location (eg Desktop)
  • Run Photoshop - it should load correctly - and close it
  • There will now be a new, minimal Preferences folder in username/Library
  • Move contents of original Preferences folder to the new Preferences folder
  • When prompted to replace items, choose not to replace them

Photoshop should now be working.
