    I have a macbook pro running on El Capitan with 8 GB of RAM and a 2.2 GHz Intel Core i7. I am trying to install Lightroom 1.1 from CD. I need it for a class I am taking and if I do not have to invest any additional money to use the software, I would prefer not to until I know I will use the software in the future. I also have photoshop CS6 on the computer. I got a successful install message. When I try to open the program, it does not open properly and the program does not operate. I was never prompted to input my serial number. Is there a way to install this older version?

    • Not sure Ruth, but our guess is it would be unlikely that Adobe software written almost ten years ago (the first version of Lightroom came out in early 2007) would work on a modern Mac operating system…

      You can try googling the exact text of any error message you received and see if that helps – but because the application is so old there are almost certain to be significant incompatibilities with a recent Apple o/s (which are notorious for dropping support of older interfaces).

      Certainly the newest/latest version of Lightroom should work properly and smoothly on your computer, and you might consider checking out a free trial of that to see how it goes:

      As an added resource, you may also like this free Lightroom Primer book to help get going and learn how to best use the program.

      Hope that helps!

    Adobe updates its Creative Cloud apps, you might want to make article or something about it. Adobe CC 2017.

    I really like this site btw, you provide download links for CC 2015 and updates (& more). And would you mind adding CC 2017?

    • Thanks! Yes, Adobe tells us that new standalone installers for CC 2017 are coming, however they have not been released yet… But we are following this very closely and will post these direct download links here on our site as soon as they are available.
