Hi Ruud Hennequin,
Would that be fine with you if we will let you know by tomorrow whether your product is eligible for the Lightroom 6 upgrade or not.
The student edition is precisely the same program as any other version of Lightroom. The only difference is in how it is licensed. Once you have purchased your original license, regardless of whether it was a student purchase or a regular purchase, you have a fully licensed copy of Lightroom. The only thing the upgrade requires is the serial number. If you are installing on the same computer the upgrade installation will find the original serial number and the installation will continue.
The short answer to your question is that the student version of Lightroom CAN be upgraded using the upgrade release rather than requiring that you paid full price again. I got started with the academic version which I qualified for while working at a university. I purchased an upgrade for the next version and had no problems.
What's there to check? Student versions of Lightroom 5 are definitely eligible for upgrade to Lightroom 6.
As she already had a discounted version for Lightroom 5 so I just need to check whether it would be eligible or not for the upgrade.
Thanx so far. I know now I can purchase the upgrade version just like every LR owner.
But the lower student price only remains for your first purchased full version (and not after that for upgrades),
is my conclusion.
However, it seems that the 6 version lacks functionality in comparison with the cc version.
Especially the well received new "Dehaze" function.
So I might be forced to go for a subscription though.
Adobe offers student pricing for Creative Cloud but not LR6.
I still don't follow.
The Student and Teacher version of Lightroom 5 is eligible for upgrade to Lightroom 6.
Looks like she wants CC anyway so an upgrade is a moot point.
