I have an old Photoshop CD for Adobe Photoshop CS4 Extended. Is it possible to put this on a computer without a CD slot, maybe by entering my Serial Number? I purchased photoshop almost 10 years ago so I am not sure if it will be compatible with my current macbook - just wondering if there's a way to download Photoshop somehow. Thanks!

That's a fairly old version. If you are running a modern Mac OS you will be out of luck because 32-bit apps like CS4 for Mac, will not install because they are no longer supported.  So even if you could find an installer it would not run.

NOTE - The CS2-CS3-CS4 activation servers have been removed from service -https://helpx.adobe.com/creative-suite.html?promoid=19SCDRQK -So even if you have a disc or saved download, CS2-CS3-CS4 are completely dead -Adobe also no longer supplies the special non-activation version of CS2-CS3-CS4
