    Default LR5.7 update notice

    Hi guys

    i like to know if this update prompt is a payable version?

    i am on v5.7 LR now and when i click on download, it brings me to an intro page and then i do not see a download link to update except options with price...

    hope to get your advise.

    Thanks!

    Yeah, I too found the 'update' prompt misleading. I'm on v5.7.1 (perpetual).

    As the new version of LR is available as Lightroom 6 (perpetual license) or Lightroom CC 2015 (subscription), my current understanding is that the 'Update' prompt is probably only true for LR CC 2014 subscribers.

    For standalone LR users, moving to a new number version (v5 to v6, as opposed to v5.7.1 to v5.8) is usually considered an 'upgrade' and will need to be purchased. They should have a different version of the prompt with a 'Purchase Upgrade' button. What they're doing seems like they are hard-selling CC to those on perpetual licenses.

    Adobe has done a very good job at hiding the link to purchase the standalone/upgrade version of the new Lightroom 6.

    I am too confused by the update prompt. I cant any version to update from 5.7.1. Guess they want us to pay USD 79 to upgrade.

    When I tried to buy the upgrade to LR6, it says my account is not registered in the proper country and refuses to transact. Funny thing is I could buy the upgrade from LR4 to 5 the last time.

    Bro

    I have this concern that if I sign on this I will be perpetually stuck to LR. Maybe its not valid due to my ignorance.

    Let me explore this option.

    Thx

    Renewal
    The price is valid for a full 12 months. After that, we'll renew your contract automatically unless you cancel. The price is subject to change, but we will always notify you beforehand.

    Cancellation
    We'd hate to see you go, but if you cancel within the first 30 days, we'll give you a full refund. Otherwise, you'll be billed 50% of your remaining contract obligation. If you ever need to cancel, just contact Customer Support.
