* Updated December 2020 *
If you're wondering how much Photoshop costs, you're in the right place. It's a simple question, but there are several answers.

So how much does Photoshop cost and how do you get the best deal?

Photoshop is available as an Adobe Creative Cloud subscription on several different plans. The best deal for Photoshop is as part of the Creative Cloud Photography Plan, which costs $9.99. As a standalone application, Photoshop costs a monthly fee of $20.99. Photoshop is also available as part of the Creative Cloud All Apps plan, which costs up to $52.99 a month.

Prices are a bit confusing as you can get Photoshop and Lightroom together in the Photoshop Photography Plan for Less.

How Photoshop and Creative Cloud subscription plans work

Years ago, I could buy Photoshop as a standalone application. You could pay for it and download it or get it on DVD and have it forever.

Today, Photoshop and the latest versions of all other Adobe applications are only available with a monthly or annual subscription plan.

When you sign up for Photoshop for this subscription, you will receive the latest updates and future versions. Photoshop is installed locally on your computer.

You'll need to validate your subscription when you first install it, but then you won't have to connect to the Internet to validate it again for 99 days.

You can install Photoshop (or any of Adobe's desktop applications) on two computers. You can put it on a Mac and a PC.

What is the difference between the annual plan and the month-to-month plan?

The annual plan requires a one-year commitment (paid monthly or annually) and is cheaper than paying month-to-month.

The monthly plan is more expensive, but it allows you to stop and restart the subscription without any cancellation fees.

There's a 14-day money-back guarantee, so you can always cancel if you decide you don't want to use it. If you cancel after that, there will be a penalty and you will be charged a 50% fee for the remaining months.

Membership plans automatically renew until canceled.

    The best deal just for Photoshop

    If you want to buy Photoshop only, there are two options:

    The following table describes exactly what is included in each plan. Basically, though, if you don't care too much about the amount of online storage, then the photography plan is by far the best value when you get Photoshop and Lightroom for half the price of the Photoshop plan. It's a bit annoying, but there you have it.

    The best Photoshop deals for students and teachers

    It is currently a Teacher or student? Then you can get big savings on The full suite of apps: just $20 a month.

    If you only need Photoshop, then Photo plan mentioned above for $ 9.99 it's still the best price for Photoshop, even as a student or teacher.

    But, if you need more than just Photoshop and Lightroom, the offer for students or teachers has a great value. Please note that the price of education only applies for one year. After a year, the price of education goes up to $30 a month, which is still a good value.

    conclusion

    If you are not a student or teacher and just want Photoshop and there are no other applications, the best price is definitely the Photo plan for the balance price of $9.99.

    I hope you found this guide on Photoshop pricing useful. And don't forget that you can download a completely FREE Photoshop trial for 7 days. Or the 7-day trial of all Creative Cloud apps. If you want to use the trial after 7 days, you can pay for a subscription, but there is absolutely no obligation.
