Adobe said Tuesday that its flagship Photoshop, Illustrator and other Creative Suite 3 programs have not been fully tested with the next version of Apple's operating system due out next month, which could lead to incompatibility issues.

A substantial proportion of Adobe users are also Apple Mac users, notes Reuters, with many eagerly awaiting the new Mac OS X operating system, code-named "Leopard."

Speaking to the media outlet, Adobe chief executive Bruce Chizen said his firm has not received a final copy of Leopard with which to test its software titles, including the recently released Creative Suite 3.0.

"CS3 hasn't fully been tested under Leopard," he said. "If it doesn't work, we will make the necessary adjustments."

Chizen's comments on Leopard compatibility appear to have been extracted from a more general interview with Reuters covering the firm's recently released financial report.

The San Jose, Calif.-based software developer said Monday that third-quarter profit more than doubled to $205.2 million, or 34 cents a share, from $94.4 million, or 16 cents a share, in the same quarter last year.

Apple has said it plans to unleash Leopard sometime in October.
