Adobe launches free version of Lightroom for desktop
Adobe has launched a free version of Lightroom for desktop, exclusively for new customers in Australia and New Zealand.
The Lightroom Starter Plan is available for both Mac and Windows users, and offers many of the core features of the paid version, including the Light, Colour, Sharpening, and Crop tools, non-destructive RAW editing, access to over 90 presets and profiles, the option to store and organise a photo library locally, and access to in-app interactive tutorials.
Notably, the use of the free app is not subject to any trial limits or subscription terms.
You can check out the new free version of the app here (just make sure you click for the local version of the Adobe website).
Coinciding with the release of a number of updates for Lightroom, Lightroom Classic and Camera Raw, this announcement also comes just one month after a suite of changes Adobe released for a number of its other products.
