Two months after Adobe made Lightroom free to iOS, the company late last night announced that its Android version of the app would now be free as well. Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 1.4 for Android is now available for free from Google Play.
While you no longer need a Creative Cloud (CC) subscription to use the app, however, users who wish synchronise work between their mobile device and their desktop will still have to get a subscription. At present the Creative Cloud subscription is priced approx. at Rupees 650/- per month (US$ 9.99/- international price at this time).
The Android platform added RAW support with the release of v5.0 (Android Lollipop), and Lightroom for Android was soon updated to support Adobe DNG workflows as well to take advantage of this new functionality. And with the move to make Lightroom free for Android, this successfully puts the ability to capably use a mobile or a tablet as a fast editing tool is your workflow.
The app has been downloaded more than one million times on Google Play.
“As a photography platform, Android is making huge leaps and strides. New devices are being launched all the time with better and better cameras, and with the launch of Lollipop and the ability to shoot raw DNG files, Android provides one of the most powerful photography platforms available,” the company said in a blog post.
The app has been downloaded more than a million times from the Play Store already.
You can get Lightroom for Android over at the Google Play Store.
