Hi. I have Lightroom 4 working well on my desktop & laptop, but I also have a macbook air. Do I have to buy a new lightroom 4 to work with my macbook air or is there a way I can get my current version to work with it? Thanks

    The license agreement allows for 2 computers, so you could remove it from one of the others and still comply with the license.

    Regardless of the licensing agreement, it's likely that your serial isn't going to work on on your Mac if your desktop and Laptop are Windows based.

     

    I suggest trying it and find out. If it doesn't then you will have to contact Adobe and they might be able to give you a reduced cost license for the Mac.


    If it does work, I'll leave it up to your morals as to whether to uninstall it from one of the other two.....

    Not true. The serial numbers are valid for both platforms.

    Unlike the actual application, the serial number is cross-platform, so you can install on a Mac and a PC and use the same serial number.
