Hi

Photoshop version CC2018 is available from the below link and is compatible with your system, Photoshop can be pretty RAM hungry depending on what your doing so 8GB of RAM is a bit on the low side.

If you just want to do basic Photo editing there's https://www.photopea.com/

Adding to what Ged said, you do not "buy" Photoshop. You buy a subscription. The link he gave you to PS 2018 works with your paid subscription.

 

You can get a refund on an annual plan within 14 days of purchase, but don't push it to the last day.

 

There is an annual Photography plan, payable at $9.99 monthly or a month-to-month plan at $31.49 that can be cancelled without an early cancellation fee.

Do i have to pay $9.99 per month for each months that i use it? or  would i have to pay for the whole year even if i use this for a few months only?

If you are going to use Photoshop for just a few months, get the monthly plan for $31.49 (mentioned above) that can be cancelled without penalty.

 

If you buy an annual plan at a deeply discounted rate (payable monthly or in a lump sum), there is a cancellation fee for cancelling before the year is up. The Photography plan includes more, is 1/3 the price, and is an annual commitment.

 

Details here:

https://www.adobe.com/legal/subscription-terms.html Scroll to "Annual contract, paid monthly" > Cancellation Terms

You can cancel your subscription anytime via your Adobe Account page or by contacting Customer Support*. If you cancel within 14 days of your initial order, you’ll be fully refunded. Should you cancel after 14 days, you’ll be charged a lump sum amount of 50% of your remaining contract obligation and your service will continue until the end of that month’s billing period."

 

I will confirm that ProDesign Tools is legitimate and works closely with Adobe. He is also active in the Adobe Community Experts program and attends the Adobe conferences. It's always good to ask! 🙂

"isnt this a pirated version of ps 2018?" no it's not a pirated version, I would be sacked as an Adobe volunteer if I provided non genuine links to Adobe software 😉

The links provided by prodesigntools are directed to Adobe servers

I would recommend you add more ram if possible. Photoshop will need more ram to stay steady.
