If I buy standalone version of Lightroom, can I install it on more than 1 PC? As I have 2 laptops.
How often do I need to purchase an upgrade so that I have the latest features available?
The license for Lightroom allows you to have it installed on two computers at the same time, but you can only use one instance of Lightroom at any given time.
You have to purchase the latest version of software when a new integer version of Lightroom is released, right now if you purchase Lightroom 6 you wouldn't have to purchase anything until Lightroom 7 is released. New integer versions of Lightroom appear about every two years, but there's no way of knowing when the LR 7 will be released, the best guess I have (repeat: this is a guess) is in the next 12 months. You do not have to purchase decimal updates, these are free, if you purchase Lightroom 6.0, then Lightroom 6.6 (the current version) is a free update.
thank you so much! this is very helpful!
