Adobe Photoshop Question: How many times can you install it into a different computer?

Asked by DarlingRhadamanthus (11266points) June 23rd, 2010

My computer saga continues. I had Adobe Photoshop loaded onto my laptop that just died. I am borrowing someone’s laptop until I get a new one. I need to do some graphics, but do not want to load Adobe onto this borrowed computer if it means I cannot load it onto my new one.

Someone told me that you can load it onto one laptop and one desktop computer and that was it. Is that true? Is it unlimited use once you purchase it, or?

Thank you!

Any single user adobe product can be installed on 2 computers. A primary & secondary. But they cannot be running simultaneously. Using the internet, when you activate your product, it checks to see where else it has been activated. Looks like a third computer is a no go.

I would not install it on a borrowed laptop. Because that would use up your last activation.

Just grab the trial from Adobe’s website. It is good for 30 days without adding anything like a watermark to your graphic. It is a free download.
