Now that the new Adobe Creative Suite 6 has been released some things have changed and if you want to have Photoshop there are more options available now than buying it full and alone. By the way CS7 will not be released until around May/June 2014.
IMPORTANT: All the prices are only for USA, please check on your country the pricing
Photoshop Elements 10 is available to buy only and cost between 50$ and 95$
I am making this because I want also to decide what to do with Photoshop CS6 and know that I will not buy the full version or upgrade.
The latest information and LOTS of things can be found in
PhotoshopCafe Creative Suite 6 SuperGuide Site
Photoshopsupport.com with articles and many discounts available.

RENTING OR SUBSCRIPTION (is the same)
Please, See here all the available Subscriptions plans
A subscription to Adobe is the same difference as to buying or renting a house or an apartment.
A subscription to Adobe is the same like renting an apartment, You can live in the apartment as far as you pay for the rent, and even if you rent the apartment for 5 or 10 years, you will never get the ownership of the apartment, but you will always be able to use it if you pay for it.
Photoshop renting or subscription
19.99$ if you make a contract for one year and STILL pay month by month
29.99$ if you decide to pay month by month and stop and continue when you want.
This is made for a specific software or group of software that you want use from the selection available

MY Personal FAQ
YES, this is totally true you will have the right to receive FREE ALL the future updates Adobe makes for the software you are renting, you will NEVER have to pay EXTRA for any upgrade as it happens with owners of the licences.
I am sorry, but this is wrong, you are NOT paying the whole in tiny pieces, you are NOT making a payment by installments, you are RENTING the photoshop licence, so as I have said above, in the same as renting an apartment, you will never get ownership of the licence.
If you want to pay Photoshop CS6 in tiny pieces each months AND GET at the end the licence for the whole thing, you should ask to the store you buy it from for a LOAN and ask for deferred payment or payment by installments, you need to have a credit that you can pay monthly.
ONE YEAR vs PAY MONTH PER MONTH SUBSCRIPTION OR ADOBE CLOUD
The very good thing on this is that YOU DON´T PAY the full year at first as it happens in other places, you STILL keep paying month by month
The one-year plan offers lower monthly payments and requires a one-year commitment. This is the ideal plan for customers on an older software version who may no longer be eligible for upgrade pricing but want to have the most current release and latest features.
A one-year subscription requires a commitment for the full year and monthly payments. If you decide to end a one-year subscription before the 12-month period is over, you will be charged 50% of the remaining amount left on your contract.
The month-to-month plan provides the flexibility of a short-term commitment, allowing you to end your subscription at any time. If you decide to restart, simply purchase a new subscription without having to reinstall your apps. This is the ideal plan for freelancers and owners of small businesses who need to accommodate for temporary staffing and require software on an as-needed basis.
Subscription accounts can be reactivated within six months of expiration. After six months, your account will be deactivated and you will have to purchase a new subscription.
