Question: I'm trying to figure out if I can actually use Mavericks with OS 10.6.8, and will it potentially interfere with any of my graphics software? Should I wait to hear more? Thanks.

Mavericks would replace 10.6.8.
First, the only true requirement for upgrading is to ensure your system meets the minimum system requirements for running Mavericks. If your Mac can run OS X Mountain Lion then it should run Mavericks, and in its announcement today Apple reiterated this includes the mid-2007 iMac, MacBook Airs from late-2008, and the Mac Mini from early 2009. Also keep in mind the App Store will check for system compatibility, so if you can download it to your system without error, then it should install just fine.

Here are instructions for making a bootable drive to install Mavericks.
And here's another version of instructions.

Note that you don't need to jump through all these hoops if all you want to do is install Mavericks on more than one Mac. Just copy the installer from hard drive > Applications and put it the same place on any other Mac.
