I am currently taking a photography/editing class and have been told I can by the Lightroom 5 student/teacher addition to us as long as I have a receipt verifying I'm taking this class as a student. Is this true and once I purchase the program, do I need to scan/email my receipt to someone to be able to get the code to install the program on my computer? And why is it next to impossible to speak to someone on the phone to ask a simple question. Very frustrated right now.
When I applied for my student/teacher serial number, I was asked to supply an academic picture ID as well as an academic e-mail address. When I provided that information the serial number was sent to me via e-mail immediately. I don't know who you are taking the class from. But I suggest that you talk with that person to clarify the process you need to follow to license your student/teacher version of Lightroom.
