My son (student) has LR 3 but needs to upgrade because his new (2nd hand) camera needs LR 5 to open the Olympus Raw. He doesnt want to go to cloud because he doesn't access the internet what are the options please
The current version is Lightroom 6 which is the only non-Cloud version sold by Adobe.
You can buy it online following these steps
Note the system requirements include minimum Windows 7 and a 64 bit computer
If you want to stay with Lightroom 3, there is another option:
Download the free Adobe DNG converter, batch convert all Raw files to DNG format then edit the DNG files in Lightroom 3. An extra step for you but no extra cost.
Thanks John appreciated , Ill let him try the free option first as funds are limited but handy to know about 6 as well
