A major redesign of the Mac App Store and changes in sandboxing parameters has led to a plethora of notable app returns, including Transmit, Microsoft Office Suite, BBedit, MS To-Do, and others.

Adobe Lightroom Mac

Recently, the Adobe Lightroom has returned and can be downloaded today.

After a week of free trial, users can subscribe for $9.99 per month via Apple’s in-app system. Each subscription comes with a 1TB cloud storage.

The last time Lightroom for Mac made its rounds was in 2012, where users could purchase it for $149.99. The return holds some promise on both sides as Apple can generate more revenue from the split in-app purchase mechanism, while Adobe can reach a broader audience with the macOS environment.

Mac users can get Lightroom CC outside the App Store by heading straight to Adobe’s website and subscribing from there. Individuals who want to get the updates straight on their Mac computers should definitely get the App Store version.
