If I were to purchase Photoshop elements 15 online, would I be able to install and use Elements 8 using the serial number or something to that extent?

Two elements can work on the same computer.  The early elements should be launched first.  If launching a later elements first, it will take longer to open or stall and never open.  Opened second, you shouldn't have a problem with both running.   I use 3, 4, and 10 on an older PC and 10, 14 and 15 on a later PC.

I should clarify, I mean if I purchase elements 15, am I also buying previous versions that I can use. Thanks for your response

No, the license is diffferent in each version. You can install an older version if you have already bought its own license.

No Tyler you would not be able to. Each version is it's own separate entity. If you desire an older version that is not Elements 8 the web archive has some versions for free, however they are very outdated. See you at film tomorrow!
