I find it obnoxious that users cannot buy a single image and have to sign up for a subscription, then, if you don't buy enough images monthly, you lose them (even though you paid for them)!

Then, if you cancel your subscription, then you lose all images at the end of that month, even though they were paid for.

Seems fair.

You can buy single images  without a subscription. Also you do not lose any images that you did license. You only lose any credits.

How does this relate to Photoshop?  Maybe you intended to post this in the Adobe Stock forum?

There aer many stock image houses around but most follow the same or similar business model.

No option that I saw for a single image, or I would have done it, used to do it.

Understood about credits, understood about licenses.  It was the credits I was complaining about.
