Why is Photoshop by itself more expensive than the Lightroom + Photoshop combo?

 I noticed the "Photography Plan" has both Photoshop and Lightroom, and it's half the price Photoshop would be by itself.

Because the Photography Plan is a deeply discounted bundle aimed at digital photographers. 


Creative Cloud Photography Plan -- approx $10/month for 12 months. Includes the very latest versions of these great products & services:
-- Photoshop CC and Photoshop on iPad
-- Lightroom on desktop, mobile and the web
-- Lightroom Classic
-- Portfolio website + hosting
-- Spark with premium features
-- Bridge
-- 20 GB cloud storage (upgradable to 1 TB).

If you only needed Photoshop for a 1-2 month long project, you would need to buy the costlier monthly single app plan.  Different options for different types of users.

Another way to see it: Adobe offer standard plans for all single products $20/mo for an annual commitment or $30/mo for cancel without penalty.
