Today, Adobe is announcing that Lightroom Mobile is now free for all Android users, and that you don’t need a Creative Cloud subscription to use it. It’s been free for iOS users since October, and now those who swear to the Google overlords will be able to enjoy the apps capabilities for themselves if they’re not a CC user.
While the app is free, you’re really just getting the ability to edit images on your phone and use the Adobe Lightroom camera. If you want to sync files between your phone and your desktop, you still need to pay for an Adobe Creative Cloud subscription. If you’re a professional or a serious photographer, the $9.99/month is very worth it since it lets you continue to work while on the move.
Adobe Photoshop Lightroom mobile can be downloaded from the Google Play Store and used for free today. If you’re looking for another really incredibly powerful photo editor though, consider RNI films.
