          Given the headlines lately that hackers stole 150,000,000 encrypted account of which only 38,000,000 are active being that Photoshop is one of Adobe main products if not their main product. I would think 38,000,000 would be a good number.  Today even to try Photoshop you need at least a free Adobe account.

           

          I do not think Adobe would give you the current number. So go with 38,000,000 its big its round....

            There is this link to an Adobe Press Release in 2010 http://www.adobe.com/aboutadobe/pressroom/pressreleases/201002/021810PS20Anniversary.html and there are also 2 contacts listed there that you may be able to contact to get some information. Maybe even NAPP could help.

             

            About the center of the press release is this quote:

             

            "Over its 20-year history, Photoshop has evolved significantly from a simple original display program to a wildly popular application that has over 10 million users worldwide."
