here's my question :
If I buy a boxed version of Lightroom 5 from, say, Amazon, can I use the key to unlock my current trial version I've downloaded from Adobe's website ?
My main problem is that I'm living in a foreign country now, I plan to switch from Aperture to Lightroom, and from an old Macbook Pro to a new Retina one (without optical drive). So basically, I'm not sure I can buy the program from here (and still get the proper language I need… any clue about that ?), and that I can install it from the DVD too (because the Retina Macbook Pro won't read it). But I can order it from Amazon in my country, ask a friend to message me the key, and enter it into a downloaded program (such as the trail version I'm using), if it's technically possible.
I don't need Photoshop at all (and on't have the money for it…), that's why I'm looking for the boxed version of Lightroom instead of Creative Cloud offers.
For sure it will work, this is what I have to do each time there is an upgrade. Adobe do not accept payment from my foreign address. Make sure you purchase the Full version and not an upgrade one, unless you already have an earlier license key.
