I've just been bought Lightroom 5 for my iMac and found out that V6 might be out in March. To retain all my current version 4 settings would I need to upgrade through the versions, 4 to 5 to 6 or can I just wait for V6 and skip 5?
Whenever Lightroom 6 is released (which may or may not be in March), you can simply upgrade your version 4 catalog to version 6. No need for intermediate steps.
Why don't you include all of your version 4 work into your version 5 catalog right now?
Thanks for the upgrade confirmation
I haven't installed V5 yet as if V6 is imminent I was considering returning it. Seems a bit of a waste of money to only use 5 for a few months. But like you say, it may or may not be released in March...
