Adobe adds Lightroom 4 to Creative Cloud subscriptions

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.

    where's your data?

    Unlike the other apps which work on separate files, Lightroom creates a database of your photos and metadata. Where is this kept and what happens to it when you unsubscribe?At the very least you'll build a DB of photos that you will no longer be able to read.

    It's on your hard drive

    The software is subscription based; your photos are not. They are organized in folders on your hard disk, easily accessible directly via the Finder. This is true even if you uninstall Lightroom, and regardless of any subscription status.
