Hi, I wanted to purchase Lightroom 4 for my photo editing. I saw on Adobe website it cose SGD178.75. I would like to ask whether it is good to purchase it online (download) or buy it at local shop. And will it be cheaper at shop?
I understand that the recent purchase of Canon 6D comes with the LR4 as one of the freebies. To me it is fine to sell it off as one may not want to use it or already has it, as long as it is functionable and cheaper than in the market. Of course this will fund part of the camera cost. I myself have sold some of the freebies at almost 50% of the original price.
I purchased on the adobe SEA website.. Im not sure if u can get student price through shops. Becos in order to qualify for student/staff, u required to upload a proof, such as student ID, then wait for approval from adobe. Which thereafter u can then download the lightroom.
No. Only distributors with educational channels are allowed to sell educational licenses. And for all educational purchases you need to produce a student id (if you are a student) or your credentials if you are an educator. If you are neither, it will be illegal for you to use it and just as bad as using a pirated copy. And you cannot use it for commercial purposes.
If you are not a student nor educator or if you intend to process any paid work, i strongly suggest you get the full licensed version. It is not that much more expensive.
