Adobe Lightroom For Mobile Is Now A Completely Free Standalone Photo Editor

Adobe Lightroom For Mobile Is Now A Completely Free Standalone Photo Editor

iOS (and soon Android): Adobe’s mobile version of Lightroom used to require the desktop app and a subscription to Creative Cloud to really work. Not anymore. Now you can use Lightroom on your tablet and phone to edit photos without a subscription.

You don’t even need an Adobe ID to use it. Just download the app, connect it to your photos, and you can start editing them right away. Lightroom Mobile also now includes the Dehaze filter, a camera feature that lets you shoot photos from the app, and additional editing tools.

By nixing the subscription requirement for Adobe Creative Cloud Photography Plan (it’s still an option if you want to sync your edited photos online), Adobe has made Lightroom Mobile more competitive with other popular standalone photo editing apps (see our top picks for iPhoneand Android).

Lightroom is available free now for iOS at the links below and will soon have the same upgrade to free for Android.
