Info about Lightroom / ACR updates is posted officially on the Lightroom Journal web site. I do not see anything about the stand alone upgrade posted as yet. Maybe later this evening.I have been able to upgrade through the CC.
I'm also curious about this. I recently (last few months) just upgraded to LR 5 and now 6 comes out. I may just flip over to CC if the upgrade is going to be a big cost so soon.
The LR6 is already out (for me in the US, anyway) on the Products link at the bottom of every www.adobe.com webpage.
Probably not for every regions. There is product website in Czech (Europe) but when I click buy Lightroom 6 it redirects me to catalog where is listed only LR5.
Answering my own question here... I found a link - perhaps the link is
now active? It seems that you can do it by the following path:
Products -> How To Buy -> All Products. The trick might be to not log
in as well - because I'm sure I've been here before and kept getting
taken to CC.
After selecting the upgrade and "Add To Cart" - I'm then
taken to a Checkout page that does not offer any way to pay other
than by phone!
Of course - the phone is not being answered (not many companies on the web
still take phone calls). I've left a message. Crossing my fingers :-)
Good luck with it
You are probably right - they are rolling this out region by region. Its only kinda available
in New Zealand at the moment - you can select but not quite purchase.
Yes! That works .. thank you so much!
Ok, let's go and be more specific.
and then click on the bottom button "All Products"..
Then you're on a list of product, go to this line and select "Buy" :
then "Add to cart" :
Then on the Cart page, select "Edit" on the top right of the product selection :
Then change "Full" to "Upgrade" and change the "I own" drop down selection to your product :
I let you go for the rest.. I won't give you my card number
Have a nice day
That really was quite detailed! Thanks.
It seems that the checkout page is broken for me (both in Safari and Chrome).
Fortunately I tried the Adobe phone number again, and got a CC support engineer
who was kind enough to take my money.
So now I'm a happy LR 6 user.
Hi Paul, that's great but you shouldn't have to use the phone...
Here's another forum thread with how to buy the LR6 perpetual version (full/upgrade) online from Adobe:
