Adobe has re-released Photoshop CS2 9.0.2, resolving an issue that afflicted the initial release where users were unable to print under certain circumstances. Hours after the initial release, Adobe pulled the faulty update an issued the following statement:
"We have identified an issue with the 9.0.2 when printing on OS X 10.3 and are addressing that with our team now. Be forewarned we expect we will pull the 9.0.2 update because of this and release an update that will address this issue as soon as we can."
The new version 9.0.2 corrects the printing issues, and also resolves other bugs including:
- Photoshop no longer crashes when encountering unsupported file types through the Acrobat Touchup workflow.
- Supported files that incorrectly produced an "unsupported color space" message now open as expected.
- TIFF files with layer data greater than 2GB now open correctly.
Adobe advises that if you previously installed the earlier 9.0.2 update and are affected by the printing issue, you should re-install Photoshop CS2, then apply this update. If you are running Mac OS 10.4 or later, there is no need to re-install and apply the update.
Instructions for re-installation are as follows:
- Quit Photoshop CS2.
- Move any personal files that you want to save from the Applications/Adobe Photoshop CS2 folder.
- Delete the Applications/Adobe Photoshop CS2 folders and its contents.
- Empty the trash.
- Run the Photoshop CS2 installer.
- Run the Photoshop 9.0.2 update.
The new edition of Photoshop CS 9.0.2 updater is available as a 24.1 MB standalone download.
