Adobe has brought its popular image editing app Lightroom to the Mac App Store. Apple confirmed as much when it announced the redesigned store as part of the macOS Mojave announcement a year ago, and it’s now happened.
Anyone who wants to download Adobe Lightroom can do so now with the Mac App Store version being a free download. An in-app purchase is added to unlock the app once the initial seven-day trial comes to a close, with subscriptions costing $9.99 per month or $118.99 annually.
The revamp of the Mac App Store that arrived alongside macOS Mojave late last year has seen a raft of apps return to it. Developers previously stayed away from the store due to poor performance and Apple’s 30% cut, but it seems Apple has been able to make some reconsider. Microsoft Office is one of the suites of apps to have returned to the Mac App Store, with Panic also bringing Transmit back.
Adobe’s Lightroom is one of the most high-profile arrivals on the Mac App Store, though, and signifies the company’s apparent newfound willingness to sacrifice its own subscription model.
