    But even if you don’t relish parting with your hard-earned cash each month for the Adobe Creative Cloud subscription, Lightroom is still free for everyone. The catch? If you aren’t a subscriber you don’t get these three tools in the app: Healing, Selective, and Geometry. But you do get the Lightroom camera for creating RAW files, and you do get all the tools necessary to process those RAW files on your phone. The tools you don’t get aren’t necessary for RAW processing and are easily replaced by other mobile phone apps, like SnapSeed and Touch-Retouch.

    In deference to Rade, I don’t have an iPhone and I don’t have a Lr subscription. I do have a Samsung Galaxy S6, and it does shoot raw in .dng format. Just wanted to add a note that Snapseed on my phone also does basic raw processing. I haven’t done any head-to-head comparisons of Lr vs. Snapseed but the option is there. I do use the Lr camera app occasionally on my phone, but I actually prefer Camera FV-5.
