I have 2 programs, Premiere Pro and Lightroom.

 

Both are now very old, and I only use both a few times a year, normally upon return from my holiday.

 

I think £100+ a year, every year, for ever is expensive for my needs.

 

Is there a subscription model where I pay for use, ie I start the program, it knows that and I pay a hourly rate.

 

Or can you advise what programs I should move to that are not a subscription based scheme.

no there is no hourly etc subscription.  it's either monthly or annual.

 

with premiere pro you can select a monthly subscription and do that the months you want.  that's the closest you can come to what you want.

 

you can do the same with lightroom but lightroom also has a purchase one-time option, https://www.adobe.com/products/catalog.html#category=photo

Thanks for the quick reply but following your link I can only see a monthly or an annual option for lightroom, but I cant see a one-time purchase option (just an option to rent it for a year or monthly)

 

Can I just purchase for one month, then not purchase for 8 months, then purchase for a month again.

 

Not ideal, I dont really like to rent anything, I much prefer to buy outright.

 

To my mind, a program that I buy for £150 and use for 3 years or more is way more economical that £300 for the same period and to be honest, I know the online version has all the bells and whistles and knobbly bits but I use lightroom to catalog and tweak the image, so in effect only use the bells.

 

I dont suppose anyone will suggest an alternative that does the job but isnt subscription based.

you're correct, it no longer appears lr is available for one-time purchase.  so, its options are the same as premiere pro and the other subscription programs.

Premiere Pro from $20 per month, Lightroom from $10 per month in Photography Plan. $360 per year is the cheapest (price is for a full year commitment).
