    I think I remember reading somewhere about Adobe Lightroom that I could install it once on my Mac and also once on my Windows PC. Does this also hold for Photoshop?

    No because you have one PS app for mac and one for PC I don't think you can use the same license on two computers with different OSs. Call Adobe maybe?

    You need a cross grade license transfer. In the past adobe charged to change platforms, I'm not sure if that stance is still accurate.

    Anyways you basically had to transfer the license so you couldn't use it on the PC if you went to the Mac (or vice versa).

    If you want to use both the PC and Mac versions you'll need to buy two copies.

    They still change platform licenses but you're right, it's one license per.
