That’s right — anybody can use Lightroom Mobile (note: it’s no longer called Lightroom Mobile – this mobile app is now called ‘Lightroom CC’). So, your friends, family members, mild acquaintances, pets — they can all simply download Lightroom CC from Apple’s App Store, or Google Play, and they can start using the power of Lightroom today for editing their own mobile images.
Q. So, what’s missing from this “Free” version of Lightroom for their mobile device?
A. Just one thing. Syncing. Since they don’t have a subscription to Lightroom Classic (or the new Lightroom CC), images they edit with Mobile back won’t sync between their mobile device and their desktop computer — it’s an all mobile workflow.
All the other sliders, features, etc. are all still there, and work the same way.
How cool is that! Just tell your friends/family/other that when they search for it on the App Store/Google Play, they need to search for Lightroom or Lightroom CC (heck, even if they search for Lightroom Mobile, what comes up is Lightroom CC, but just let them know — yup, that’s the right one).
Hope you found that helpful!
Thanks to everybody who came out to see me in Texas!
Had a blast in San Antonio and in Houston – it was great meeting so many folks who read the blog or catch me on the Grid. Next month, I’m in Atlanta and Milwaukee, Wisconsin – details and tickets here. Come on out and spend the day with me.
Have a great weekend, everybody, and we’ll catch ya back here next week!
