perhaps the used version of photoshop does work better when using wine.
Wine is as easy to use as vbox, it doesn't require graphical desktop
sharing by VNC and doesn't require SAMBA to share files or something
similar, that is needed by other virtual machines.

I run iTunes as a vbox guest, because it doesn't run on wine and I
can't spend time to set up a most likely better, but not that easy to
set up virtual machine. Vbox does cause a lot of trouble.
