    Hi I have Photoshop 12 & a portable hard drive with two keys. Can I down load it to the hard drive & use my Photoshop on my (two) sisters computers. This is for my personal use only!! Thanks

    Hi and welcome to TSG!

    I believe that according to the End User License Agreements (EULAs), it'll work as long as both activations are on the same OS (Windows only or Mac only) and you cannot run the software on both computers at the same time.

    Did you mean to say that you have two licence keys for Photoshop?

    I think you will find (if it is like most) that the license terms are that for each licence you can use the product on ONE main (office) computer and one back-up, usually a laptop for home use. So you should be covered.

    Thanks Dave. What I wanted to be able to do was, take the portable hard drive with my other key installed on that drive, over to one sister, use my photoshop on her computer in Houston. Then when I would visit my other sister in Waterloo Ont. I wanted to be able to plug that drive into hers, using that drive with key installed? But that won't work will it!?? Thanks

    The licence use resides with the computer on which it is installed, in the registry, NOT with the source code or the load module.
    PhotoShop is not a Portable App.
