Bad news and good news Pier. The bad news is that yes, you have to pay an ongoing subscription to keep using Photoshop, as does everyone else. The good news is that you only need to pay $10 a month for the Photography plan, and that includes Lightroom.
Yes. It is a subscription exactly like the Microsoft and other program. Basically if you want to be up to date you need to continue it.
Go on line and choose the one you like.
Diffrent prices to diffrent planes.
This is what is meant by “subscription”. If you were paying over a year to keep the product it would be called “instalments”. Reading the small print is very important.
If you stop paying you still have your PSD files on your local disk. Files in Adobe’s cloud may be deleted after a few months. The software stops running and you cannot open files except by Subscribing again.
The $20 plan has little point, the $10 plan is a special bargain. There is also a $30 plan which still renews but can be cancelled at any time, so you could take for 1-2 months to complete work then cancel.
10$ for the Creative Cloud Photography plan, it is much better than pay 20$ for only have Photoshop and nothing else.
I do not see the point to offers two option, when one is much better than other.
I see only annual plans for one year use or temporary uses, there isn't the option to buy the app once for ever.
Did I miss to find it or Adobe doesn't offer this ?
Thank you guys
They discontinued permanent licenses for Photoshop CS6 in Jan 2017. Photoshop Elements is the only permanent license product they have.
Creative Cloud, their subscription program started in 2013.
The $20 plan is a strange thing, but every app in Creative Cloud has a $20 plan. The $10 plan is a special for photographers only. Maybe it's just tidy to keep the $20 plan.
When Photoshop was last sold it was $600. That's 5 years at $10/month But in those 5 years you would have needed to upgrade several times. The subscription includes upgrades, so it's cheaper except for people who want to freeze on old risky software.
thank you very much !!!
