I have had the Adobe Creative Suite 3 Master Collection sitting in the box for a while. I opened the box, and there are three CD cases. I am mostly interested in Adobe Photoshop, and I would like to install it on my Macbook Pro 2015. Any idea on how to do that, if possible? I am also interested in changing to the newest version of Photoshop, and was wondering if I am eligible for free updates? Thanks.

Short answer: No and no. 

 

Long answer: CS3 from 2007 is discontinued.  There is no possible way to activate it because the servers for that are long gone.  So your disks are useless.  And 13 year old software doesn't qualify you for anything.

 

Creative Suite is no longer legally sold by any vendor, retailer or country.

MODERN OPTIONS:
Photoshop or Premier Elements 2020 (approx $100, no subscription needed)

Creative Cloud Photography Plan (approx $10/month for 1 year subscription)

Creative Cloud All Apps Plan (31 + apps & services)
https://www.adobe.com/creativecloud/plans.html

 

===========
Beware of fake Adobe reps who may contact you privately offering to sell you software or take control of your computer. It's a scam, run away!
