Hello;
I have an unregistered version of Adobe Photoshop CS2, which I can not install on my MAC (Lion) 10.7.3. Can I purchase and install the upgrade to CS5 without the CS2 software already installed?

As long as you have the serial number for CS2, you can install the upgrade for CS5 without installing CS2 first.

Thanks Chris, I'll go ahead and purchase the CS5 upgrade, and install. Do I need to purchase the CD or can I download the software directly from Adobe?

Either approach works. Just have your CS2 serial number available to complete the install.
