    Set up a shared folder in the VMware guest machine (see the VMware help) and then from the host machine copy the Photoshop install file to the shared folder. Then, working from the guest, you can move the file to somewhere more conveinient.

    Once set up, the shared folder shows up in "network neighboorhood" on the guest.

    It depends upon which version of Photoshop you're evaluationg, but you're going to be disappointed to various degrees. Photoshop is just too resource heavy. Have you looked at TheGIMP 2.4?

    Transfer, by any means, the file to windows and run it the way you would normally.
    There are two mistakes one can make along the road to truth...not going all the way, and not starting.

    Yes I have been using gimp for awhile now, but I want to see if I like photoshop better or not.

    If you have VMware tools installed on the client you can simply copy the files on the host and paste them in the client OS.

    If you don't then just install VMware tools and see step one.

    Easy.
