The software is rental-only, with Photography subscription plans, which include access to Photoshop and Lightroom, starting at $119.88/year.
Single-app Photoshop subscriptions now cost $34.49/month or $263.88/year, Adobe having raised the prices of many Creative Cloud subscriptions earlier this month.
