Starting with LR 6, the trial is always the cloud version. If you buy a serial number (rather than subscribe to the cloud) then there is a way to convert your cloud trial to a serial-number-licensed version, but that occurs after you’ve purchased a serial number, no during the trial period.
Thanks; I think I understand. I bought a Lightroom 5 DVD (wanted something basic) today but won't be getting it until Monday and wanted to try my hand at Lightroom so thought I would see what the trial was all about. Guess I'd better wait.
Also, I don't have a DVD slot on my computer. Thought I could install it on an old PC with DVD drive and then transfer it over onto my current computer with a thumb drive.
Download a 30 day free trial of Lightroom 5 from Product updates. When your LR5 DVD arrives, you can just enter the serial number that comes with the DVD into the LR 5 trial, making it the full version of LR 5.
Thanks so much. I saw the downloads in product updates and assume the serial no. for Lightroom 5 will work for the trial version of Lightroom 5.2? (Just wanted to make sure.)
Are the product updates trial versions? I didn't see a price with them.
Thanks again. New to all of this.
At the page I linked to, these are all 30-day free trials.
You should download Lightroom 5.7.1, and your serial number will work fine with that.
Thanks so much.
