I have multiple Photoshop programs (CS, CS3, CS4, CS5 and Lightroom 3. May I uninstall these from my hard drive without creating issues with CS6 and/or Lightroom 4? I am using a Mac system. Thanks for answering

Once you are comfortable with the new versions of software, you can uninstall the prior versions if you wish:

Here are instructions for uninstalling Creative Suite (CS6 and earlier) applications: https://helpx.adobe.com/creative-suit...

Here's instructions for uninstalling Creative Cloud applications: https://helpx.adobe.com/creative-clou...

Here's a document on uninstalling the Creative Cloud desktop application itself: https://helpx.adobe.com/creative-clou...

For Lightroom 5 and earlier, you can simply throw the application in the trash.

If you need to reinstall an older version at a later time you can:
