I moved to Creative Cloud last year, but there are many people who would rather continue to use the standalone version of Lightroom. Unfortunately, it can sometimes be hard to find. In this short post, I’ll show you where you can still purchase the standalone version of Lightroom so that you can enjoy all the power that Lightroom offers without the monthly commitment.
Keep in mind that if you decide to go the standalone route, you won’t be able to take advantage of Lightroom mobile. Otherwise, though, the features of the Creative Cloud and standalone versions are identical…at least for the current version.
Buy Lightroom Standalone From Adobe
If you click Buy on the Lightroom page at Adobe, it will take you to the Creative Cloud subscription page. They don’t make it easy to find the standalone option, but it’s still there. To find it, navigate to Menu > All Products which will take you to the Products page. From there, scroll down to find Lightroom and you can select the Full or Upgrade version for your platform.
Buy Lightroom Standalone From Amazon
Unless Adobe or Amazon are running a deal, the prices are usually pretty close. Amazon sometimes offers a software or music credit, so check for that, too.
