Welcome to the Apple Support Communities
Time Machine may be useful to restore other type of software, but not Photoshop or Microsoft Office, if you only want to restore the app without restoring other data.
That's because Office and Photoshop needs some system files that can't be recovered just recovering the app, so you won't be able to open those applications after restoring them. The only workaround for this is to use Migration Assistant to restore the applications
Migration Assistant doesn't delete anything from the Mac you are transferring your files, so you can use it without worrying about it
