Thirty day free trial: Product updates
Purchase Lightroom 5: Products
You might want to hold off purchasing LR 5 because LR 6 may (or may not) be released soon, and see if the 30-day free trial gets you enough time so you don't have to buy Lightroom 5 and then also purchase LR 6. No way of knowing, though.
Thanks, that's what I needed -- someone who knew how to get to the Upgrade Purchase page (your "Products" link)! Every time I'd clicked on a Buy link, it threw me to the "Full Product" page.
Good thought on the trial. I do recall it was non-trivial going from LR1 to LR4. No need to do upgrades twice.
Is LR6 still available standalone? I really don't need CC to handle 10's of thousands of photos.
LR6 is not available at all.
Thought LR6 might be in Alpha or Beta...
I'm still cranking on saving Metadata to File (started that about 4 hours so far) for the first of my four LR Catalogs before I try installing the software. I'll let you know how this goes. I downloaded a version of LR5 for trial.
does anyone know if you have to uninstall LR 4 from a MAC after installing LR 5?
Don't have to. It's your choice.
All five LR 4 catalogs converted nicely. Much easier than my last upgrade (LR 1 to LR 4). Import a few hundred photos (raw/jpeg) worked as expected.
Thanks for the help.
