I enjoy and using photoshop maybe 10-20 times a year, I have spent the $122.00 for a year subscription but cannot afford that. Anyone know how I can use photoshop with minimal use without enduring the high cost that photoshop charges?
Did you consider Photoshop Elements? For your kind of use, I doubt you'll miss anything from the full Photoshop features. You don't need to buy a new (perpetual) license for every year release and you can shop around to get the best price. The trial version allows you to use it 30 days.
