I bought the LR5 in US. Now I've moved to India and trying to upgrade it to LR6 but i was told by sales personnel that LR6 can be obtained only through CC and cannot be purchased or upgraded to. Is that correct, coz I am really not interested in getting CC , but if i have no other option , i may have to . I thought I did see an upgrade option for LR but now finding it gone. Not sure if this is country specific either.. any pointers would be great !
It is not correct. It is available as standalone license.
Go here: Software & Services
Scroll down to LR and click on buy on the right side ... there you go.
