seats per box copy?

Jan 6, 2013 8:22 AM

When you buy a copy from your on-line store,how many seats do you get.  I have a studio which may require the software for its MacBook Pro, New iMac 3.2 gHz, and Dell XPS 430 w/ 256GB SSD and 8 GB Memory.

    Two installations is the EULA language.  Can be either Mac/PC/or one of each.

    And those are not seats - those are for the primary user to be able to use it on their second machine.

     

     

    “2.1.3 Portable or Home Computer Use. Subject to the restrictions set forth in Section 2.1.4, the primary user of the Computer on which the Software is installed under Section 2.1 (“Primary User”) may install a second copy of the Software for his or her exclusive use on either a portable Computer or a Computer located at his or her home, provided that the Software on the portable or home Computer is not used at the same time as the Software on the primary Computer.”

    Photoshop has an activation process.  You can only have two copies of Photoshop actively installed at any given time.  And the license stipulates that those installations are for a single user.  The license does not allow for both copies to be used simultaneously.  Based on your description, you will need at least two copies of Photoshop.  And, if you add more personnel then you will need additional copies for each additional person.  The Photoshop license agreement is for a SINGLE user.

    Something for you to think about it.  If your son is still in school he should be eligible to purchase Photoshop at the academic price.  That would save several hundred dollars.  Then you would both be eligible for upgrade pricing in the future.

    Yes, if you buy a single license. But Adobe offers also volume licenses for multiple users.

    Yes, that is true.  But read the original question.

    Jim the OP is talking Lightroom not Photoshop so the costs are very different! Lightroom licenses are very reasonable and affordable.

    That's what I thought, too.  But message number 3 specifically states "Photoshop".  I took him at his word.  You decide what he really means.  Sorry, I'll step out of this one.
