yeah this is sweet for those that can take advantage of the academic software discount... I bought the retail version 3 but am going to offload it and take advantage of version 4 instead with this deal.
I don't know where they got March 6th from. LR4 is currently in beta and expires March 31st. I think we're months from seeing LR4 released.
Might make more sense for them to officially release LR4 prior to the beta expiring -- and taking people's libraries with it. Even though you're not *supposed to* use betas with any critical data or in a production environment... and even then, I'll bet a lot of people are testing it out with a forked copy of their LR3 library. It'd be nice to just roll into the release build.
There's supposed to be student sign up form at amazon. You need to provide amazon the student email, and amazon will send a link through that email to activate the student account.
I don't think that's how it works if everything is still the same as Lightroom 3 and other products.
I purchased a copy of Lightroom 3 (student version) from Amazon and I didn't have to do anything with Amazon to activate the software. They just shipped me the box with a DVD and a product code inside. I then submitted the code to Adobe via their eligibility verification website and provided them with a copy of student ID and my tuition bill. Adobe then gave me the serial number to install and activate the software. Adobe handled the entire verification and activation process, Amazon had nothing to do with it except selling me the software.
