I read and re-read the items involved in the Photography Plan ($9.99) and understand that it includes Lightroom CC and Photoshop CC. Then I read the description of the Single App plan ($19.99) which is, as it states, a single app, like Photoshop. That sounds like I'm getting less for twice as much $$. Unless the big difference is that you get all the updates in the $19.99 plan?

I'm finally ready to give up on Photoshop CS6, which I bought just before CC came out (at great cost). Since I got a high-res, 4K laptop which just does NOT like CS6 (menus are so small you can't read them and there's nothing being done about it by Adobe). I certainly can't ask Adobe if there's a plan since there doesn't seem to be a way to reach a real person Adobe agent to ask.

Right now I'm on a free trial, but it's a free trial for the Single App $19.99 plan, so I can't compare it with the Photography Plan, which doesn't seem to have a free trial.

Correct. That's what you get.

The Photography Plan is excellent value for money compared to the Single App Photoshop plan.

The main difference between Photography and Single App is that you only get 2GB Cloud storage with the Photography Plan. With Single App you get 20GB.

If that does not affect you then Photography Plan is the way to go, even if you never use Lightroom.

Boy, are they ever misleading when they describe the plans! That's about what I thought the difference might be, but since I couldn't get a trial for the Photography Plan, it was hard to tell (Adobe marketing 101). I don't care about cloud storage (20GB is NOTHING when you're editing photos!).

Thanks so much!

That link leads to a 404 File Not Found error, Pattie.

Can someone in Adobe fix it? It's been reported several times in the past but has not been fixed yet. The relevant person in the relevant department has clearly not been made aware of it yet.

HI John. I'll look into it. I suspect it may have been obsoleted since the Photoshop plan is listed there and no longer available. I'll see if there is a new link comparing just Photoshop and Photography or not.  Thanks for letting me know about the 404 message.

Do you mean the new Paint Symmetry in 2018?  It's under experimental options in Preferences.

Not that I know of

Cloud Plans http://www.adobe.com/products/creativecloud/buying-guide-at-a-glance.html

You may still buy any or all of the CS6 programs, which are one time purchase... BUT which will not be upgraded

You can just go for the month to month subscription, apply the cost to the overall project cost and then stop the subscription when you don't need it.

Long story short, the customer pays you for it.

Please, don’t pirate. I know what you found and it’s not legal. Believe me, even if it says what it says is a lie. They are selling pirate cracked versions of it and at the end is not worth it. I trully recommend going to Mac App Store and get the Affinity Photo and Affinity Designer apps. One time price and powerfully profe. When you get to next level get the Adobe subscription. That’s my humble advice.

You won't find anything affordable with Adobe, unfortunately. What you want is Affinity Photo. It costs $50 US and is a very good alternative photo editing software.

Thanks for helping out and giving advice, but there is no need to answer this 5 year old thread. The correct answer of the time has been given. The CS6 option, however, is no more available. So this is now a dead end and I’m locking this thread.

Why is the creative cloud so expensive? If a 15-year-old guy without rich parents wants to be creative with photo's and video's and has just enough money for a cheap camera, how is he supposed to if a creative cloud is hundreds of dollars? There are people more than just professionals and rich guys! What can normal people do?

When I want to build a professional workshop for my mechanical works, I would also need to invest in professional tools. If I’m an occasional user, less professional tools will do.

I’m not sure that at the time good old times of perpetual licenses, the 16yers old guy would have invested the 1000 to 5000 USD for buying the different creative tools. And he/she would have to invest that in one time.

Today he gets the student version (a student version of above was also available to be honest) for 20$/month for the first year. That’s a lot, but less then the 5000+ bucks that he would have needed in the good old times.

And as https://forums.adobe.com/people/John%20T%20Smith pointed out: There are the elements versions: Photoshop Elements and Premiere Elements... Not quite the professionnel level, but good enough to be creative.

=========

Professional level software costs money.  If you're not working in the industry, you probably don't need pro level software yet.    Do a Google search for free photo editor.
