Lightroom on the Web

lr-mobile-100Lightroom on the web? Yes, there’s a web version of Lightroom.

What is it? It’s web based version of Lightroom that you access from within a web browser. You can easily access, organize, and share photos you’ve synced from Lightroom on the desktop, Lightroom mobile for devices or dragged directly into the web browser interface. Lightroom on the web also allows you to edit photos, including cropping, making adjustments, and applying presets.

If this is the first you’ve come across a web based version of Lightroom then more details can be found at Lightroom on the web.
