I bought Photoshop CS3 for my old computer (running Vista) and later bought the CS5 upgrade for it.
Now I just got a new computer (running Windows 7) and want to install Photoshop on it. Do I have to first go into my Adobe account and download the full version of CS3 and THEN download the CS5 upgrade? Or is there some better way to do this?
Thanks in advance for any help.
No, if you do not want the other versions on your new computer it is best not to put them on and then uninstall them.
PS works best if you install in order. So it you want older versions put then on first and leave them there.
If not, as Noel says, just enter the s/n of CS5 which would be your qualifying product for the CS6 upgrade.
Thanks for the reply. Ah, ok... so I'd just need to download the CS5 upgrade then?
And semi-related question. Let's say I wanted to upgrade to CS6 now instead. Would I just need to buy the CS6 upgrade (even though there's currently no version of Photoshop installed on this computer)?
