Adobe has added Lightroom 4 to its cloud service, giving subscribers access to the photo editing and management software at no added cost.
Adobe's Creative Cloud charges users a monthly subscription fee for access to its Creative Suite line-up, including Photoshop, as well as 20GB of online storage space.
The system means users don't need to pay the up-front costs for the pricey software package, and also means they get automatic upgrades.
"Over the next few months we'll continue to add new products and services, keeping Creative Cloud members up to date with the latest advancements in Adobe software and services," said Winston Hendrickson, vice president products for Creative Media Solutions at Adobe.
Adobe added that its Digital Publishing Suite, used to create magazines for the iPad, would be "coming soon" to Creative Cloud.
A yearly subscription to Creative Cloud costs £38 a month, while month-to-month subscriptions are £57. Adobe offers discounts for students, teachers and existing customers.
On its own, the full version of Lightroom costs £86, while the upgrade is £49, but Creative Cloud also includes a host of other software, including the entire Creative Suite 6 with Photoshop Extended, which costs £360 for the upgrade alone, and website-creating system Adobe Muse.
