    It's not clear to me what you are asking... incompatibility with each other? With other programs? With hardware?

    I believe that the current version of Photoshop is CS5.

    Hi LHerrou

    Thanks for your comments. I am looking for both, I mean ...

    1) incompatibility issues of Adobe Photoshop CS4  with other software and hardware
    2) incompatibility issues of Adobe Dreamweaver CS4 with other software and hardware

    Hi Ray Paseur, thanks for your comments too...I am specifically looking for CS4 because I need that as part of preparing a technical documentation.

    I google it and searched Adobe site, but couldn't locate the answer.

    Not sure I know what to say.  Maybe we can start by noting that different versions of the programs exist for Mac and PC, so that might be one incompatibility?

    I believe that you might be able to find what you want by going to the Adobe website, under help, search the Knowledge Base for "known issues" CS4 in Photoshop and again in Dreamweaver.

    You will find release notes listing incompatibility issues as well as update notices identifying what issues were fixed in later updates.

    Although the Knowledge Base does not have the product "bug reports." The phrase "known issue" shows up in official responses to inquires made there.

    With a little detective work, you should be able to compile a fairly good list of incompatibility issues. Also, take a look at any changes that appear in the CS3 system requirements and the CS4 system requirements.
