I have LR3 and PsCS6. I want to upgrade to LR5 on several macs. Do I have to do this through Creative Cloud? What are the benefits of this? I don't necessarily want access on all computers to my images. There doesn't seem to be an option just to upgrade via standard download. TIA
Go to the site via the link below and you will be able to upgrade to the perpetual license version. You do not have to do the Creative Cloud.
The Lightroom Licenses agreement allows for the application to be installed on two computers with one in use at any point in time. Mac &/or PC.
You can uninstall from one and install on another as many times it is necessary.
