My first post, and apologies for being a novice.
I have lightroom 4 on an iMac, and I want to have the software on a recently obtained macbook pro.
I've downloaded LR to the macbook and tried the serial number of the iMac version, but it's not accepted.
Is there another way, or does it need purchasing again.
Many thanks for your time.
Lightroom can be activated on two computers, but the license key you have is only for version 4. You have there choices:
1. Locate your original installation disk or program for LR4 and install that on your MacBook;
2. Pay for an upgrade to LR5 (and use it to upgrade the version on your iMac as well as the MacBook);
3. Pay for a subscription for Photoshop and Lightroom, which will allow you to do the same as #2 for $9.99/month
Thanks so much, all sorted. LR 4.4.1 downloaded for now.
