Depends on which version of Photoshop you currently own.
Is your new laptop the same OS and platform as your old one?
Thanks for taking the time to respond.
But I'm not asking if there will be compatibility.
I'm asking if Adobe will provide me with a link to download the version
I've already paid for, and if they'll give me the license or permission to
use it, providing they can find my purchase in their system.
That does bring up another issue though, so the next question will be, will
Adobe help me match compatibility?
First please answer my questions so I can try to best answer yours, ok?
- Which version of PS are you looking for?
- On how many machines was it installed?
- Did you deactivate your previous installations of PS?
- Which OS do you have on your new computer?
If you registered your product online, you can obtain your serial numbers by signing in to MyAdobe with your user ID (email) and password.
I'm not sure which version of PS I own. Probably CS6 or 7 ?
My desktop computer is not available at this time.
And I have not purchased a laptop yet...I hope to purchase a new laptop
So I assume it will have the latetest OS.
Does that give you the info you need?
Will there be an upgrade needed ?
( Are you from Adobe ? If so, can I give you my Adobe username and password
and find out all these answers before proceeding with a purchase? )
This is a user-to-user forum. I don't work for Adobe.
Like I said before, you can log-in to Adobe's site and retrieve your product info and serial number.
CS6 is the last product version you could purchase outright. There is no CS7. Going forward, everything is Creative Cloud based now.
You can download CS6 products below and activate with your serial number:
If your product was pre-CS6, keep in mind that Mac Yosemite 10.10 is probably not going to be compatible with older versions of Photoshop as they are no longer receiving updates.
