Get Your Lightroom Free Trial—No Credit Card Info Required

Lightroom is Adobe’s popular software for photo editing. With it, you can view, organize, import, save, edit, tag, and share a great number of digital images. The edits you make with it are non-destructive as opposed to the ones done in Photoshop.

Lightroom is popular among professional photographers and enthusiastic social media users due to its wider range of editing possibilities, compared to usual in-built camera filters.

We can make a distinction between Lightroom Classic and Lightroom CC. The differences are slight, but notable:

  • Lightroom Classic—it’s designed for desktop-focused photo editing. This means that the photos you edit and import are saved to your computer’s hard drive. This version of Lightroom isn’t available on phones
  • Lightroom CC—it’s a cloud-based service that enables photo editing, sharing, and organization online. It is available on desktop, mobile, and tablet

Does Lightroom Have a Free Trial?

Lightroom has a free trial for new subscribers. To start a Lightroom free trial, you must first choose between one of the three available plans. Which features you’ll get access to depends on your choice. 

These are Lightroom plans Adobe’s offering and features that go with them:

  • Lightroom—a basic plan that includes Lightroom CC, Spark with premium features, Adobe Portfolio, and 1TB of cloud storage
  • Photography (20GB)—a difference in this plan is that you get Lightroom Classic, Photoshop, and 20GB of cloud storage
  • Photography (1TB)—this plan is the same as the previous one in all features except cloud storage—with this one, you get a whole terabyte

How Can You Get a Free Trial of Lightroom?

You can start your free trial by immediately by following these steps:

  1. Open the Lightroom free trial page
  2. Click the Try For Free button
  3. Find the plan you want and tap on Start Free Trial
  4. Enter your email address
  5. Input your credit card info and click on another Start Free Trial button
  6. This will start an automatic download
  7. In your downloaded files, find the Lightroom setup and open it
  8. After you’ve installed it, open Lightroom and sign in with your account

How Long Is the Lightroom Free Trial?

The Lightroom free trial starts the second you make an account and begin using the program. It lasts for seven days.

Are seven days enough for you to decide whether you want to pay for the software? Probably not. This is common practice with companies like Adobe—they lure you in with what seem to be great offers and hope you’ll forget to cancel your subscription.

This isn’t a big deal if you decide you like Lightroom and want to continue using the software in the future.

Does Lightroom Automatically Renew Into a Paid Subscription

After the seven-day trial, Adobe will automatically charge your credit card. The only way to avoid this is by canceling your subscription before the trial ends. 

Adobe isn’t all that bad, though, since they allow refunds if you request them within 14 days of your subscription. If you need help with requesting a refund, DoNotPay is the app for you.

Still, the safest option is to cancel Adobe Creative Cloud membership on time. 

Here’s how you can cancel your Adobe subscription:

  1. Sign in to your account
  2. Find the Cancel button and click on it
  3. Enter your password and chose the reason for canceling
  4. Tap on Cancel my plan button

If you need further help, contact the Adobe customer service, and if this doesn’t do it for you, DoNotPay can help. With our app you can get in touch with any customer service fast and easy.

Stop the Lightroom Adobe Automatic Renewal With the DoNotPay Virtual Credit Card

What if you never had to worry about canceling on time again? It’s better to be safe than sorry. If you don’t want to risk forgetting to cancel your subscription, there is a solution for you—DoNotPay’s virtual credit cards. They are essentially randomly generated credit card numbers that hide your private information from vendors. They seem real, so no company will see the difference. They are not linked to your actual credit card, so there’s no risk of getting charged automatically. 

Find out how you can get DoNotPay’s free virtual credit card through our virtual credit card generator. Get your card and start as many free trials as you like, completely risk-free. Here’s how DoNotPay’s credit cards work:

  1. They generate a random, temporary credit card number
  2. They hide your private information, by creating fake names and credit card details
  3. They get your membership canceled for you because the company’s unable to charge you

If you think this is great, wait until you hear about one more perk of DoNotPay’s free virtual card. It can generate a random email address and help you protect yourself from spam mails. DoNotPay can stop spam emails for you by having the company’s messages sent to this fake address.

  • With the annual plan, paid monthly, you get a discount, but enter into a contract with Adobe. If you cancel your subscription before the year’s end, they charge you a cancellation fee
  • With the prepaid annual plan, you also conclude a contract with Adobe. If you decide to terminate the agreement after the 14-day period, your payment is nonrefundable and the service will continue until the contract expires
  • The monthly plan is the one that’s different—you do NOT enter into a contract with Adobe, and you can cancel your membership at any time
