The cloud-based service for people who love photography, Adobe Photoshop Lightroom gives you everything you need to edit, organize, store, and share your photos across desktop, mobile, and web.

Create incredible photos anywhere with Photoshop Lightroom and 1TB of cloud storage. The app offers powerful photo editing features in an easy-to-use interface. Adjust your full-resolution shots and have both your originals and edits backed up to the cloud. Organize with searchable keywords that are automatically applied without the hassle of tagging. And easily share and showcase your photos in fun ways.

Anywhere editing:

With easy-to-use photo editing tools like sliders and filters, Photoshop Lightroom makes it simple to create photos that look just the way you want. And you can edit your full-resolution photos anywhere — on mobile devices, the web, or your desktop. Edits on one device are automatically applied everywhere else.

Smarter organization:
Adobe Sensei uses machine learning to recognize the people and other content in your photos and then applies searchable keywords automatically. Looking for shots of your cousin or favorite trips to the water? Auto-tagging makes searching a snap so you can create albums based on any person or theme you want.
Worry-free storage:
The 1TB of cloud storage included with Photoshop Lightroom ensures that you can access your entire library of full-resolution photos anytime you want, anywhere you are, from any device.

Easy sharing:
Share your photographs with loved ones, clients, or an even bigger audience. Post photos directly to social sites, showcase them on your website by sending them directly to Adobe Portfolio, and create stunning graphics, web pages, and video stories in minutes with Adobe Spark. It's all included in your membership.

Your first week is free. Once your free trial ends, the recurring monthly payment is automatically charged to your iTunes account. To stop service, go to Account Settings and turn off auto-renew at least 24 hours before the end of your billing period. Prorating is unavailable -- when you turn off auto-renew, service will continue until the end of that month’s billing period.

Love it, but...

Love the new Adobe Lightroom but its lacking features such as watermarking (via PNG format). Doesn't make since why desktop doesn't even have this feature while the mobile has a half way watermarking feature. I would like to see this feature implimented. Then next introduce a new (optimized) tethering feature (at least for the desktop version).

New features coming very slow and I understand esspecially the times we're in, but it would be nice to have some kind of communication / road map of features coming into the future.

I have a lot of hope for Lightroom but it would be nice to see something to keep that optimizism alive :)

its okay, doesnt have certain things i need

im new to photography and wanted to get a professional application to help me improve my photos. ive had fun messing around with lighting and what not, but what i really want is to be able to layer or stack my photos, so i can get creative and make some abstract, and strange edits. i figured since this is a popular application that it would have pretty much everything you need to be ceativly expressive through your photos and edits. But now that i needed to look it up how to do it with this app and ask questions it turns out this app doesnt have that, and infact seems to just have basic editing applications such as contrast and color and cropping.
So if youre someone who needs an app for just fixing color and contrast, then this is for you. but if you are trying to get creative and blend photos together, then i reccomend using a different app. i have to cancel this subscription because i didnt do enough research when i bought this, im gonna be finding another app that can allow me to do what id like with my photos.

Not a fan of 3.3 update

The new features of the update like versions and being able to add a watermark are nice but I am annoyed that things I used to be able to do with ease are now more complicated. With this new update I can no longer directly export to my external hard drive. Its says the disk space is to low which is not true because it is a 2TB wireless hard drive. I had tech support from adobe try to help me but it just won't work with the update. Also, you used to be able to simple press "shift" (on Mac) and then hit "Auto Exposure", etc. and it would adjust said edit feature. Now you have to move the slider slightly then press "shift" then click "Auto..." It has also been running a bit slower than it used to. I think this update could use a little work.
