Yes it is possible, subscribe to the monthly plan. It will be renewed automatically so you need to remember to cancel it. See the terms of subscription for various plans below

Bear in mind the following

1. Deactivate/activate is something you can do on your computer at any time while you have a subscription, but you keep paying. 

2. The only way to stop paying is to cancel; if you have a yearly plan you must pay 50% of the year remaining.

3. The Photoshop monthly plan is $30 per month, while the yearly Photography plan including Photoshop is $10 per month. So if you use it in 4 months of the year, the non-stop $10 plan is cheaper. It really is a huge bargain!

Yes, exactly it's annual, $10 per month, and a great bargain compared to the program you CAN cancel month by month.

i can understand your point 🙂 but i cannot spend so much money in a software i use randomly...just for saying, 10 dollar a month (120 dollars a year) are double of what i spend for my mobile phone plan which i use a lot (with all included)...all adobe plans are targeted for pros, for who work with this softwares...i am not a pro but yes i know how to use photoshop and if i was not used to photoshop i think i would go for gimp or some free software but they are not so immediate to me, i have to study how and where are that photoshop functions...i don' earn a dollar using adobe's software...i hoped adobe could think also in an amateurs plan but it is not...and i can also understand why that their softwares are for pro only...anyway really thanks for your kind help 🙂

thank you very much! maybe this is the right way...

i have to study in what differs from the original...i will

if essential is not too much different and it let me find easily familiar functions needed it is surely a good option, if instead adobe removed a lot of what is the original and made it a very different program for noobs, then it would be worth studying a free alternative ... can you please tell me something more? 🙂
