I want to move my Photoshop CS5 installation to a new computer.
Unfortunately, I lost the paper with the cd-key.

Is there a way to recover the serial from my local installation?

If you logged in with your Adobe account when you first used the serial number, I believe it gets tied to your Adobe account and is retrievable through their website. (I'm not entirely sure though, this is how it worked for older CS versions at least). –  Rain Mar 14 '13 at 2:01
    
@Rain - indeed, I can find it there. –  Gnoupi Mar 14 '13 at 8:19
