What is Adobe Photoshop CS 5.5 subscriptions? How much will Photoshop CS 5.5 cost? What is the price of Photoshop 5.5 subscriptions?
The most significant new feature of Adobe Photoshop CS 5.5 and Photoshop Extended CS 5.5 is the new subscription pricing.
Adobe is making it possible for people wanting to use the latest version of Photoshop to subscribe on a yearly, or month-to-month basis, rather than having to buy the full version. This will enable people to keep up with the latest Adobe Photoshop software without having to purchase, and be tied into, the expensive full version.
Adobe Subscription CS 5.5 One year plan
Offers a lower monthly payment, but requires that you remain a subscriber for at least a year. After the first year, you retain the low pricing, but can cancel at any time.

Regardless of the plan, your credit card is charged every month
