i currently have an old laptop with the intention of upgrading soonish. I would like to go ahead and download lightroom but am worried when i get the new machine it wont transfer over. Is it possible to put lightroom on multiple computers from the same one purchase?
A single Lightroom license entitles you to two installations but for your personal use. There is no activation process for Lightroom, so you can simply uninstall from a computer you are no longer using and have it installed on two computers that you use. There are things to be aware of if you are going to move all of your work to a new computer. The following link will probably be of help to you.
