Adobe accidentally leaks Nimbus Mac and Windows apps, offering ‘Lightroom in the cloud’

“Adobe last year teased a new Mac and Windows photo editor, with the project known as Nimbus,” Ben Lovejoy reports for 9to5Mac.

“The app appeared to borrow heavily from the simplified iPad version of Lightroom, with a key feature being that both images and edits are stored in the cloud,” Lovejoy reports. “The idea was that users should be able to switch back and forth between desktop and mobile editing.”

Lovejoy reports, “The company promised a beta version sometime this year, and it appears that we may now be getting close as Adobe accidentally made a download available to some Creative Cloud customers.”

Adobe previews ‘Project Nimbus,’ a next-gen photo editor – November 3, 2016


    1. If you make your living using this software, it is a very good value. If you don’t, then why complain? One business card design would pay for a full months work of the enter Adobe software library of applications. I use Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign and Acrobat on a daily basis. I use Premier, After Effects and Adobe Animate at least once or twice a week and I get access to the latest versions of everything the have plus 20GB of cloud storage, team collaboration tools, Type Kit and use of beta releases. This is a good value for me and anybody that uses 4 or more of their tools frequently.

    2. I think Creative Cloud is a bargain at only $10.69 a month for Lightroom and Photoshop, and I’m just an enthusiast. Too many people refuse to cut a little from their expenditures for pot, cigarettes, fast food and alcohol to invest in something useful.

  1. Still using CS4 and CS6, won’t ever adopt subscription model for Adobe or Microsoft, no matter what the ‘bribe’. I have Pixelmator for images and vector graphics, Pages, Numbers etc are all excellent replacements for Adobe and MS shiteware.

    1. What do you do for a living? If you need a Page Layout solution there is Quark XPress and InDesign. InDesign being the standard. For everything else Adobe offers, there are alternatives. But lets face it, it you need CMYK Support or spot color, Pixelmator can’t touch Photoshop. Lets be realistic.
