Photoshop/Lightroom: Additional "Daily" plan request for occasional use

Hi,

I'm a hobby photographer (I don't earn money with it), and I use photo manipulating softwares only 5-6 times a month.


I like the features of LR and PS, and I would like to use and pay them.


But.. your lowest price plan (Photography plan) still doesn't worth the price for me, because I don' work with it every day.
I know ~13€/month seems cheap, but I have very limited family budget.

So I'd like to suggest an additional "Daily plan/package" (or somethink like that) beside your existing ones, example for 1 euro/day, with prepaid possibility (10, 20.. etc days).
It wouldn't be worth it for everyday users, but casual users this could be a great option.

Without a similar package/plan, these two great softwares would not fit into my family's budget and I would have to choose another alternative application.

Please think about my request, I guess I'am not the only one in the same situation :)


Thank you

I get your point. In US 12€ is like nothing, to me where I live it means lunch for the whole week.

I have a LR plan and occasionally upgrade it to include PS too. After I downgrade, I am being refunded for the rest of the month.

I believe that when you can subscribe to the month, use it as you need and then cancel subscription, rest of the month will be refunded.

Good idea at first sight, but I would like to use the softwares 1-2 times a week.
Photography plan is annual plan.
If I cancel my subscription within 14 days, after that I can't re-subscribe for the same plan.
If I cancel my subscription after 14 days I get back only the 50% of the remaining price.
So overall this is more expensive result :)

Oh, I see. I use PS very rarely so I have never come to this limitation and I am using monthly subscription instead of annual. 
I have no other idea, but twice a week seems enough for continuous subscription to me. Must be very annoying to change plans that often. Or try Photopea, it is online and completely free or $9 per month with removed advertising banners. Longer plans are even more price frindly, up to $40 per whole year. But free version should serve just fine, only functional limitation is amount of undo steps. To me it is much more intuitive and easier to use then GIMP.
