Joins collection of CS6 apps on service
Adobe has added Lightroom 4 to the list of apps available as part of a Creative Cloud subscription. The software is a RAW photo workflow tool aimed mainly at pro and hobbyist photographers, with some limited editing functions. Signing up for Creative Cloud lets people download Lightroom 4 as long as their membership is active.
Subscriptions cost $50 per month on a 12-month plan, or $75 month-to-month. Educational pricing is $30 per month; the same pricetag is available on an introductory basis to people who own Creative Suite 3 or later. Beyond Lightroom 4, subscriptions include access to any Creative Suite 6 app, 20GB of storage, integration with Adobe's mobile Touch apps, and downloads of some non-CS products such as Muse and Acrobat. In some cases updates should also be pushed out to Cloud subscribers before they get bundled into larger releases.
