Great deal! However, I'm upgrading from LR 3 to LR 4 so the upgrade is still a better deal at $79.00. I've never seen the upgrade on sale - has anyone?

I have lightroom four and for the most part, it was my first experience with the lightroom franchise. It was entirely foreign to me and I couldn't figure out the simplest things. I got a book from the library and suddenly it made a ton more sense. I'm not skilled with it yet, but I'm getting close to being able to get a result I want, so that's a plus.
My point is, that it is a great tool and much more powerful than something vastly simpler, but it will take some effort on your part.

I thought I had lost my mind that day since the price was nowhere near $40 anymore.
Now I know I wasn't the only one who was aware of it

You can always download a free trial of LR to see how you like it. There are some performance issues, so see how it runs for you.
And if you're not a student or teacher, please don't abuse the academic pricing. Especially if you do ANY commercial photo work, you should be using the full version.

LR4 doesn't seem like a big upgrade from LR3, but it is.
The fact that it seperated the highlight and shadows sliders alone was HUGE!

I had my friend who's a high schol teacher do that part. She just used her school email and that's pretty much instant accepted and email S/N. After signed up. She changed the account information to my email so I keep getting the update emails.

If ou just batch the whole collection how will the previously edited photos be affected?
Also, I have heard horror stories about LR4 being a lot slower than LR3. And as it is LR3 isn't exactly fast with large sets...

There is no difference in the software included with the academic license. The only difference is the license. And yes, Adobe does verify your college credentials.
I love Lightroom. It's the best software I've found for cataloging, tweaking, and publishing my raw photos.

|FreeBaGeL||Anyone have any experience upgrading from 3 to 4? I've heard that with the different sliders now that it can change the way your already edited photos look. Any truth to that?|

|GhostDecon||Good price for good software. I paid $99 from newegg in early August and have been very satisfied.|

Does the academic version require you to prove you are a student to purchase it or do you have to provie you are a student to register it?
In other words can I have my GF buy it and then I install/register it? Or would she have to be the registrant?

As far as I know, the academic and full versions are exactly the same. For those that don't know, the academic version is regularly on sale for under $40.
This is only a good deal for those that don't qualify for the academic version.
