    Changing from trial version of Lightroom CC to LR 5 or 6 software & system requirements

    williamw95279354

      Hi!  I've been using the trial version of Lightroom CC, but the trial is nearly over.  Rather than monthly payments I think I'll buy the software on a CD instead as I prefer a one off payment.

       

      If I do that will I loose any work I have done n my images so far using CC?  I've spent hours learning how to edit

       

      Also CC has crashed on me multiple times when processing in the Develop module.  Could be my system is not up to it, but I really don't want to upgrade my Mac for at least another year.  The following is my current system, should I buy LR 5 or 6 based on what my hardware can handle?  I only work with still images, not video.  I'm pretty useless when it comes to computers, so would appreciate any kind help.

       

      Model Name: iMac mid 2010

        Model Identifier: iMac11,2

        Processor Name: Intel Core i3

        Processor Speed: 3.06 GHz

        Number of Processors: 1

        Total Number of Cores: 2

        L2 Cache (per Core): 256 KB

        L3 Cache: 4 MB

        Memory: 8 GB

        Processor Interconnect Speed: 5.86 GT/s

       

      Thanks in advance for your help, Will
