Photoshop is now subscription only. You cannot purchase one off.
Photoshop Elements is available as a one payment purchase. It is not as powerful as Photoshop but may meet your requirements.
Photoshop is only available as a subscription, there are alternatives out there where you can but a perpetual license, just do a Google search.
I would not recommend looking in places like eBay or Graigslist
..., there are alternatives out there where you can but a perpetual license, just do a Google search.
Be careful. Whilst there may be the odd unused CS6 licence for sale (which was the last Photoshop version sold on perpetual license) that would be buying very old software (CS6 was version 13) and we are now up to version 19. Operating systems and hardware have moved on since CS6 was released as has Photoshop.
In addition there is a high chance of ending up with a hacked version and the risks which that brings. You never know what other software the hackers have installed and many features are likely not to work. CC of has never been sold with a perpetual license so any CC version sold that way is hacked.
The safe options are :
1. Use Photoshop with a subscription.
2. Use Photoshop Elements as a purchase
3. Look for an alternative to Photoshop
Sorry Dave I meant alternatives to Photoshop and now I can't edit my post
And I can't spell, should be "buy" not "but" LOL
