Adobe Photoshop CS3 Portable is a smaller version than the popular Adobe Photoshop CS3. It is small so you can install the program onto a portable device, such as a USB flash drive. Having the program on a USB flash drive allows you to run the software on any computer that has a USB port. This also saves you room on the hard drive because you are installing the software onto the USB drive and not the hard drive.
