Hello perplexed,

Thank you for your question.

Yes, Photoshop 5.5 IS upgradeable to CS2. This page at Adobe lists the specifics:;storesessionid=T1DNMKSB0SOTHQFI0IKB2R4AVDJBKIV2?id=catPhotoshopUpgrade

Adobe Photoshop CS2 Upgrade 

To install this upgrade successfully, you will need a licensed version
of Adobe Photoshop CS or Adobe Photoshop 7.0 or earlier, on the same
platform as this purchase.

NOTE:This upgrade does not apply to Adobe Photoshop Elements,
Photoshop Album, Photoshop Limited Edition, or PhotoDeluxe licensed
Download     Windows Download File Size: 350.4 MB,  read before buying
             Macintosh Download File Size: 451 MB,  read before buying  

Either costs US$149.00  
CD-ROM  Version: Windows / Macintosh  US$149 
It appears from the above that a licensed version of Photoshop is all
that is required to be installed on the target computer and any
version will comply. And, as you can see, it can even be downloaded
from Adobe's site if you have a high speed connection.

DPReview also notes:

"...Licensed users of any previous version of Photoshop can upgrade for $149..."

The upgrade lists for $149, but can be had at a discount if you shop
around. For example. Pricescan shows small savings available down to

CNET shows it available for as low as $128
