Adobe's had a hard time convincing customers to use its could-based Creative Suite with subscriptions, but it shows no signs to doing away with that approach. The latest salvo comes from its apparent efforts to get its Lightroom photo editing program on the iPad, and if the accidentally posted listing uncovered by 9to5Mac is correct, it'll come with a $99 subscription fee.
Loyal Apple uses can best compare Lightroom with Apple's own Aperture, which also places a heavy emphasis on post-production editing. Adobe showed off a demo of an iPad version of Lightroom early last year, but it's likely that the latest version has undergone significant design chances and seen the addition of more features.
You'll also be able to sync the service with Adobe's Creative Cloud from your iPad, as shown by a 9to5Mac reader's receipt for the service even though, you know, it doesn't actually exist yet. (Good job, Abobe.) if you work with hundreds of raw photo files, it might be worth it since you won't have to worry about all of them cluttering your iPad's storage space.
There's no word on when the app will actually show up for an official release, but if the listing discovered by 9to5Mac means anything, it's that we probably don't have much longer to wait.
