Is it possible to buy Photoshop without a subscription?

 

I don't use Photoshop often but I feel like it would be awesome to have it for when I do need to use it like once every month or two.

 

Thanks!

Photoshop Elements would be the closest you can get for a one time purchase. Photoshop itself has been subscription since 2013, and the 9.99 a month/annual commitment Photography Plan is as close as you can get.

GIMP is a free image editor and there are a few others that at least support a sub-set of PS and don't cost a single penny. If your use really is that sporadic and even 10 bucks a month too much you may want to consider those.

Think first about which Photoshop features are the most important to you. If they are the features that only Photoshop has or does the best, then you would have to consider the subscription.

 

But…if the features you need the most are relatively straightforward, like basic correction, you have a very wide variety of inexpensive/free choices now. Photoshop Elements is one choice. Other choices are in the under-$50 range, such as Affinity Photo. And other choices are free, such as GIMP. All of these are inexpensive and non-subscription, and more powerful than some older versions of Photoshop.

 

But really take a look at what you need before you spend anything. For example, if you mostly need one-click background removal, Apple is building that into the operating system itself (in macOS 13 and iOS 16).
