I highly doubt it. After Design Suite (version 7), Photoshop was activated with a site license (or individual) key. Schools purchase site licenses for a great deal of money. Without that, you won't be able to launch the software at all. Unless, of course, you have a cracked version, which you know, is illegal.
That was really nice of the IT guy at your mom's school to install it, because technically, the only way for a school to install site-licensed Adobe products on personal computers is for teachers that actually use the software for instructional reasons. And even then, very few school districts will agree to comply. I teach the Adobe CS2 Suite and have yet to be able to get my district to agree to install it on one of my home computers. I have had to purchase it personally so I can work at home, if I so choose. The district's attitude is usually "stay after school and work on our computers if you need more time make your plans and learn the software completely."
You lucked out. Your mom can (because she is a teacher) get a very discounted copy of the Adobe Suite, though. It's full, it's legal, and it's a fraction of the price.http://www.campustech.comhttp://www.academicsuperstore.com
Those are just two. Both reputable. Both require proof of status as a teacher or student.
