Droplets created in Adobe Photoshop CS5, CS4, or CS3 stop working after you upgrade to Mac OS X 10.7 Lion.
The 12.0.1 update creates droplets using native code for Intel processors, and can update previously created droplets to use native code for Intel processors. Update Photoshop CS5 with the latest updates, and then do one of the following:
- Drag your old droplets onto the Photoshop application icon. An updated version of the droplet is created in the same folder as the old one, with (CS5).app at the end of the name.
- Re-create your droplets.
Droplets do not work on Mac OS X 10.7. Use Mac OS X 10.6 or earlier and install Rosetta, or upgrade to Photoshop CS5 or later.
- Droplets in Photoshop CS4 and earlier rely on code for PPC (Power PC) processors (used by Apple G4, G5 computers) to run.
- Droplets in the initial release of Photoshop CS5 also rely on code for PPC (Power PC) processors (used by Apple G4, G5 computers) to run.
- Apple no longer supports or includes Rosetta with Mac OS X 10.7, which is required to run PPC code on Macintosh computers with Intel processors.
