Adobe Lightroom is the first CC app to show up on the Microsoft Store

If you're a fan of getting apps from the Microsoft Store on Windows 10, then you're in for some good news. Adobe Lightroom is now available, as spotted by Thurrott, making it the first app from the company's Creative Cloud suite to be offered through that channel.

This is great news for fans of the product, as you'd normally first have to install the Adobe Creative Cloud app before installing anything from the suite of apps. And of course, that takes up both hard drive space and system resources, since it automatically launches at startup to check for updates. With the Store version, updates will come through the Store.

While it's listed as a free app, you do need to have an active subscription with Adobe to use it. This can be the full Creative Cloud subscription, or you can be on the Photography plan that includes just Photoshop and Lightroom. The app is x64-only at this time.

It's not the first time that Adobe has put apps in the Microsoft Store. It's previously offered things like Photoshop Express and Photoshop Elements, but neither of those is actually included in the Creative Cloud suite. Hopefully, this will open the door for more CC apps to be made available through the Microsoft Store.
