Adobe Lightroom 3: Now Shipping

Get Lightroom 3 Instantly, plus 30% off with Photoshop CS5

Yes – Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 3.5 is just out and now shipping! Pretty much on the time­frame we forecast, you can download a free trial today… And the new product will work side-by-side with any previous releases of Lightroom you own. If you have an earlier version installed, Lightroom 3 will ask if you’d like to upgrade your catalog and move everything over.

The price remains US$299 for the full version, and $99 to upgrade from either LR1 or LR2. Students and teachers can grab the full education version for just $89, or 70% off. Languages available today include English, French, German, Japanese, Italian, Dutch, Swedish, Spanish, Portuguese, Korean, and Chinese.

Moments ago Adobe also refreshed their longstanding special offer where you can get 30% off Lightroom when you purchase it together with Photoshop – only now the versions are Lightroom 3 with Photoshop CS5 (or any suite containing Photoshop CS5). No coupon or promo code is required for the discount.

Lightroom 3 will run well on 32-bit or 64-bit systems, and is designed for Windows XP, Vista, Windows 7, or Mac OS (see full system requirements). It’s sold as multiplatform software, meaning it can be installed on either Mac OS X or Windows and will deliver the same features and functions on both. And similar to CS5, you may be able to install Lightroom on up to two computers, subject to the terms of the software license agreement.

What’s new in Lightroom 3?

  • Accelerated performance
  • World-class noise reduction
  • Automatic lens correction
  • Support for DSLR video files
  • Image watermarking
  • Tethered shooting
  • Flickr integration
  • Slideshow videos with music
  • Easy image importing
  • Perspective correction
  • More flexible print layouts
  • Film grain simulation

With the benefit of nearly two years of product development since the previous version, plus two full beta periods under its belt, this third-generation digital darkroom is looking like a very smooth and polished final release.

    What does Lightroom 3 cost?

  2. Rod Wright

    I just bought Lightroom 2 and CS5 in May. Typically in the software industry buyers within the last x period of time can get a free upgrade. Is the the case with Adobe? If so, how do I order it?

  3. Charles

    Do you offer 30% off Lightroom 3 upgrade if I also order Photoshop CS5 upgrade?

    • Yes – the deal is you get 30% off the price of any purchase of Lightroom 3 (including an upgrade) so long as you order it together with any purchase (including an upgrade) of Photoshop CS5 (or Photoshop CS5 Extended). Since all CS5 suite editions contain a version of Photoshop, they also qualify for the discount.

      No promotion code is required for the special offer at this time. More details here.

      Thanks for the question to help clarify, Charles.
