Will I need to download a Cloud version of Lightroom 4?

May 3, 2012 9:09 AM

As I understand it, Lightroom 4 will not be included in Creative Cloud when it is available on May 7, butt will be later.  Will I have to download a different version of LR4 when it becomes available or will my current version beaujtomatically included?

    It will be the same version as what you already have, so you wouldn't need to download it again.

    Hi David,

    is Lightroom 4 a free Creative Cloud compoent or do we have to pay more to get it? Why is it released later?

     

    Thank you.

    Hi Alan,

     

    Lightroom 4 will be included as part of the Creative Cloud Membership at no additional charge. I think the delay relates to the timing of the decision of whether it should or shouldn't be included.

    It's a real great thing to include Lightroom in the Creative Cloud, as a Photoshop customer since many years, I was always thinking to buy also Lightroom, but not having an "upgrade" option from PS or a bundled version until now, stopped me from buying it.

    As I told before, Creative Cloud is a little too expensive here in Europe, I'm thinking to upgrade to it, but I want to wait if there will be a price re-thinking also...

     

    Thank you for the answer.

    Alan

    What if I previously purchased LR4 before Cloud?  I get to keep it if I cancel my Cloud after a year.  Any discounts for having it already?

    If you purchased a perpetual license previously then you can always keep it but there is no discount for having it already.

    When will Lightroom be included? It's not showing up as included now, and as the major apps I use are Lightroom, Photoshop, Illustrator plus occasionally indesign, it's definitely not worth my time paying for the Creative Cloud unless Lightroom is included.

     

    I've got another three weeks of the LR4 trial so it's not urgent yet, but if it's not available soon, then I'll have to upgrade my standalone version of LR4, and that makes the subscription not worth the money. I am not going to pay for Lightroom twice.

    If the delay "relates to the timing of the decision of whether it should or shouldn't be included," does that mean the decision is still unsetteled? Or, is Lightroom definitely coming and delayed because the decision was made too late to include it with the launch programs? I certainly don't want to purchase Lightroom only to find it later included, missing the reimbursement by a few days or some other techinical distinction.
