I need the cheapest version of Adobe Photoshop. Please advise what is the best option?

Dear Client,

thank you very much for your question. My name is***** and I will try to help you as quick possible. Please sit back for a moment while I prepare your answer.

Thanks for your patience and best regards,

Lorenz Vauck

Can you please let me know if it should be Photoshop Elements or possibly one of the other versions of Photoshop (Lightroom CC for example?). You can have a look here about what the differences are and which version might be right for you:

I can then look up the cheapest offer for you, so that you can save as much as possible.

I will only be using basic features so whichever is easiest to use and cheaper....

OK, thank you, ***** ***** me a few minutes while I find the cheapest offer for you.

One more question, would you prefer to get a physically shipped DVD with the software, or can it also be a download on the internet instead?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.

I would prefer to download please or if it is a monthly cloud based fee that would be fine too. Thanks.

OK, thank you. Unfortunately Adobe does not offer a (cheap) download option, only expensive ones. So I´ve been looking around for the retail version and the cheapest one for the UK I´ve found is here at Amazon:

If you do not want to buy from Amazon, the complete overview of the cheapest retailers can be found here:

If you need further informations, please just reply again and I will help you further on. That involves no additional costs for you. If I already was able to help you, I would very happy about a positive rating (3 to 5 stars), because only then I get paid by JustAnswer with a part of your already accomplished payment, which mediated your question to me as an independent expert.

Thank you very much and best regards,

Thanks. Is Photoshop Elements the easiest one to use for basic editing?

You are welcome. It depends, that´s why I gave you that article, because they (Elements / Lightroom) are just different, none of those is "easier", they do different things:

Please be so kind to give me a good rating for my work, we can continue to communicate after a rating as well of course. Thanks so much:)

Personally though, I´d chose Elements, also since it is cheaper.


I hope you had a good day and see that you´ve read my answer. Since I´ve found the cheapest Photoshop version for you as you´ve requested, would you please be so kind to rate me with 3 to 5 stars, so that I can get paid for my efforts by JustAnswer?

Thank you so much and best regards,

Lorenz Vauck
