According to the software developer, Adobe Photoshop CS1, CS2 and CS3 can all run this plug-in. Fireworks CS3 is able to run the plug-in but fails to apply final effect to a selected image.

In case you had to know, I only used Color Mechanic Pro for 30 minutes or so before making a workflow video. So don’t trust everything that I show in this video.
