What are the buying options for Lightroom?
You can purchase Lightroom on its own or as part of the Adobe Creative Cloud Photography plan, with both plans starting at US$9.99/month. Lightroom Classic is available as part of the Creative Cloud Photography plan, starting at US$9.99/month.
Are all Lightroom apps updates included in the subscription?
Yes, with Lightroom and Creative Cloud photography plans, you have access to all the latest updates and future releases the moment they’re available.
What is the difference between the annual and month-to-month plan?
The annual plan requires a one-year commitment and is our best value. It comes with a 14-day money back guarantee. If you cancel after that, you’ll be charged a 50% fee for the remaining months. The month-to-month plan gives you the flexibility to stop and restart your subscription without a cancellation fee.
Are the applications installed on my computer or are they cloud based?
Lightroom Classic is installed locally on your computer. Lightroom is a cloud-based service with three device-based apps: desktop, mobile and web. You don't need an ongoing Internet connection to use them. You only need to connect to the Internet once every 99 days to validate your membership.
Can I use the software on one more computer ?
Yes, you can install and run Lightroom apps or Photoshop on two computers, such a home and work computer (Mac, PC or one of each).
What happens to my photos if I exceed my allotment of cloud storage?
If you run out of storage, your new photos will be saved only on the devices they came from. They’ll no longer be backed up to the cloud or synced across your devices and they won’t be automatically tagged for easy keyword search within Lightroom. The photos you have already backed up to the cloud will still be accessible on all your devices.
If you need more storage, you can upgrade a 20 GB plan to 1 TB or boost your total storage to 2 TB, 5 TB or 10 TB, starting at US$9.99/month per terabyte. To purchase more storage, call 800-585-0774. To upgrade your existing plan, sign in to your Adobe ID account (Plans & Products > Manage plan > Switch plan). For detailed instructions, see Change your Creative Cloud plan.
