Adobe has made its Lightroom editing tool available for Macbook users — the lightroom stands as the pro of all its pro photo editing and management tools, and as it stands, this is the first Adobe App to make it back into the Mac Store after its redesign.
The Mac App Store version of Lightroom is the “new” Lightroom formerly known as Lightroom CC, which syncs with complementary mobile and tablet apps and has a different UI to what is now called Lightroom Classic. It’s free to download and use for a week, then it’ll require a $9.99 monthly subscription through Apple’s in-app purchasing system, which includes 1TB of cloud storage.
This would not be the first time Adobe would be releasing its Lightroom App into the Mac App Store.
Back in 2012, when Adobe sold its apps as standalone purchases before starting to push Creative Cloud subscriptions, Lightroom 4 was available for $149.99.
Lightroom 5 never came to Apple’s store, however, and even Adobe itself doesn’t sell standalone versions of Lightroom today.
