If you want to professionally edit and manage your images using Adobe Lightroom, you have various possibilities. Lightroom is currently available on the market in different versions and packages. While Lightroom 6 is a full standalone version that can't be purchased anymore, Lightroom CC is a Creative Cloud variant available in different subscription packages tailored to different target groups, for example the Creative Cloud Photography plan. Below you will find the variants that can be downloaded for installation or online usage.

Download Lightroom CC as a single program
Those who want to quickly use only Lightroom CC as a single program and have no interest in the packagers offered can do so initially with a Lightroom plan for US$ 9.99 a month including 1TB cloud photo storage.
Regardless of the version you ultimately opt for, the Lightroom downloading process is basically always the same. The first step is always to sign in with your personal Adobe ID. If you have already subscribed to a plan, you can download and install Lightroom CC free of charge in the catalog of Adobe desktop applications.
Of course you can try before you subscribe to a plan. Adobe offers a 7 day free trial for most of its Apps and plans. Select yours >>
