I've been working on LR5 for years and I now want to upgrade to LR6 (on a MAC) My question is: as I download LR6, will the photos in LR5 be affected in any way? Will I have to create all the catalogues again for LR6? Or will I just see the new features but will be able to continue working with all the photos I already have on LR5?
Thanks in advance for your help!
During inallation you get the option to convert the LR5 catalog. So everything continues as before. You can buy from the following link. After clicking "Buy" change from Full to Upgrade; then select your existing LR product from the drop-down menu and the correct pricing will be displayed. Then simply choose “Add to Cart”
Or you can take a 30 day free trial via the Creative Cloud to test what’s new (some new features are only available to CC subscribers) and after the trial it’s possible to convert the CC version to the LR6 stand-alone version, upon purchase of a serial number and without any further installation. In either case make sure your computer meets the minimum system requirements.
