1. I am pretty sure you can only use files in higher versions not lower versions, but im not 100% positive.

2. I think so, here it says that it supports smart objects, as for clipping masks, idk.

Hope this helps!

You can even open CS5 file in CS2 , but if You have used some smart filters or anything else that can’t be done in CS2 , it will dissapear from the file.

I recently bought an item here made in CS5 and tried to open it in CS2 – EVERYTHING disappeared because every layer was saved as smart object.

I think that there will be used something else, because smart objects works in CS2 . Maybe the Author used smart filters on those layers.

i think the clipping mask will be all good but the smart objects especially if they have some perspective or someting you`ll loose all that for sure. If you edint the source graphic everything mess up
