          Lightroom 4 is the current version.


          Where did you buy Lightroom 3 from? Adobe no longer sells it.


          Are you sure that you have purchased a full version and not an upgrade?

            well i bought it from adobe, it was an upgrade but it said lightroom 3 and the only reason for not getting the full is that my computer is a 32bit, so i did buy an upgrade? what should i do?

              I think you'll have to get in touch with Adobe and see about getting a refund. I'm surprised that Adobe is selling LR 3 at all.


              If you're running Vista or Win7, 32-bit is OK for Lightroom 4. It won't work on XP at all. And Macs need to be running 64-bit on OSX 10.6.8 or higher.
