Try to use GIMP. GIMP can do everything Photoshop can do.

Re: How to install photoshop in Linux

GIMP can do most of the most useful things Ps can, but it doesn't even come close to having all of Photoshop's features, unless you're talking about CS2.

My honest recommendation, if you want to use Photoshop, if to just install it on Windows. Failing that though, you can always use Wine, which can be a PITA in my experience (might be better tho these days, who knows)

Re: How to install photoshop in Linux

Run Windows in a Virtual Box to run Photoshop on it. Else use GIMP.

Re: How to install photoshop in Linux

Photoshop can be installed using Wine but it is very hard and to be honest, not really worth it. The best thing personally would to use Gimp, or if you really need some of the features that Photoshop has install Windows, or as said above run it on a virtual machine.

Re: How to install photoshop in Linux

It is very hard to run PS over the Linux platform. I will suggest you to try over the Win.

Re: How to install photoshop in Linux

You can use Play On Linux to install Photoshop on your Linux based system,PlayOnLinux is a graphical front end of Wine,so it will simplify the process of instaling PS on Linux and much more user friendly.

Re: How to install photoshop in Linux

PhotoShop is good, PhotoShop is nice, PhotoShop is also way, way too expensive, unless you happen to be a gazillionaire and don't care about money. Go with Gimp (under Winders also), it'll do almost all of the things PS will do, a LOT cheaper, as in FREE!

Re: How to install photoshop in Linux

Yeah I have never understood the logic behind wanting to run very expensive closed-source software on a free open-source OS xD

Best and easy option is use Wine windows program loader,just download executable file of phoshop cs5 and by rightclicking on it you can run it with wine loader.with wine you can install most of the softwares which cant work on linux directly...
