Photoshop is not available for free, but users can download a free demo of the product from Adobe. The free demo is good for thirty days, after which the consumer is given the option to buy the program.
The option to buy Adobe Photoshop has changed in recent years by moving from a one time purchasing fee, which was several hundred dollars, to a monthly fee plan. These plans range from 9.99 up to 49.99, depending on the options the user chooses. Anyone who has a version of Photoshop, version CS3 or later, can get a discount on the monthly or annual plan options. The package options also allow you to chose which applications from Adobe you wish to have access too.
