Reader Comment: Adobe Photoshop Forcing Unwanted macOS System 'Upgrades', Printing Color Accurately is Broken on macOS Ventura

re: Apple Core Rot

Adobe hurts its customers by forcing unwanted operating system updates.

Professional printer Michael C writes:

I installed macOS Ventura on one Mac a couple months ago, but the printing dialogue combined with Epson drivers was a joke. When I finally could get the settings to “stick”, color was slightly off. It was a nightmare.

I downgraded the M1 we had to macOS Monterey and it performs and prints fine. I will have to purchase a new machine soon and am wondering whether any of this has been resolved. Wondering whether “Sonoma” will improve any of this.

MPG: Apple Core Rot is worse than ever. Problems do not get fixed, and new ones pop up like mushrooms after a rain.

Adobe, by forcing unwanted macOS updates on its customers, creates very serious problems for professionals, who then have to deal with show-stopper bugs for months or years, or go through contortions to work around issues.

Reader Jon L writes:

I have macOS Ventura on my MacBook Pro, but was wondering about running it on my 2019 iMac 5K. Required for Photoshop CC 2024.

DIGLLOYD: why is Adobe squeezing out support for very recent operating system versions like macOS Monterey? There may be a technical reason, but this is a headache for customers.

I have the same consideration on my 2019 iMac 5K. I’ll probably give up and update; Ventura has been stable excepting the Terminal command key shortcut bug, which degrades my work every day. Apple has had nearly a year to fix this bug, so I guess it never will be fixed.
