I am looking to buy a boxed retail version of LR 5 which says you get a free upgrade to 5.3, can you upgrade to a higher version like 5.7 or are you stuck with 5.3.
I do not want to go the cloud subscription route.
You are eligible for all updates to Lightroom 5. The current version is 5.7.1. You will be eligible for any additional updates to Lightroom 5 that might be released. However, when Lightroom 6 is released, if you want it you will have to purchase an upgrade version which normally sells in the US for $79.95.
Thank you for your quick and informative reply
