How to Find a Photoshop Serial Number

You may use Adobe Photoshop daily to create, or to alter and manipulate, photos, graphics and other design elements. You want to upgrade to the latest version of Photoshop, but you don't remember if you ever registered the program with the manufacturer, Adobe. You need the Photoshop serial number so you can check the registration status of the program. To find Photoshop's serial number, you don't have to contact Adobe or locate the paperwork that came with the program.
