  1. I just received my copy of LR3 in the mail (took advantage of the lower price). I called Adobe & they will refund that product or sell the $79 upgrade, but wouldn’t upgrade for free. I suppose that makes sense, but your article makes it sound like those who bought in the last 30 days might get a free upgrade to LR4.

    • Hi Elizabeth, thanks for your comment. If you refund the Lightroom 3 you bought, and get Lightroom 4 instead, then it’s the same difference, no? The prices on LR4 now have gone down so it could even be cheaper to do it that way.

      As for a free upgrade grace period, we’re basing that news from what Adobe wrote on Facebook this afternoon… and it’s a common practice after their product releases. But even if their customer service reps aren’t all briefed on it yet (which has happened in the past as it takes a while for the news to filter down), then you can effectively accomplish the same thing via a LR3 refund and LR4 purchase instead.

      Hope this clears it up.

  2. Can you confirm how long the new lower price is going to remain? Is it a new release price and will go up to the same price that LR3 was at some point in the coming month(s)??

  3. I just purchased Lightroom 3 a couple of weeks ago! So I’d have to purchase the upgrade now? This was my first ever purchase of Lightroom. Thanks.

  4. Lightroom 4 looks fantastic, but what about total ‘newbies’ like me that have NEVER used a photoediting program before? Are there teaching aids (tutorials) available – I mean LOTS of them? My little Canon Digital is only a PowerShot A2000 IS. I have always HOPED for a Canon Rebel (with a 60mm Macro lens), but alas, I have not yet acquired this wonderful camera. Would I still benefit from Lightroom 4? Thanks for anything you could tell me!

  5. I had previously purcahsed and installed CS5. Do I get a discount buying Lightroom 4? If so, how do I go about getting the discount?

    • Greetings Eugene, thanks for your question. You can get a discount of 33% off of Lightroom 4 if you purchase it together with Photoshop CS6 (either a full or upgrade version, either standalone or in a CS6 suite).

      This means the full Lightroom becomes only US$99 in the U.S., and 30% off elsewhere – see more details of the offer here.

      Note previous purchases of older versions of Photoshop wouldn’t qualify – it needs to be the the latest PS and bought at the same time to get the deal.

    • Hi Ian, it sounds like maybe you lost the file extension when direct downloading the program… Sometimes that happens if you use Internet Explorer – it will drop the “.EXE” off the end of the Windows executable file.

      If so, then you just need to add that extension back to the end of that filename – and then double-click it to get started with the LR4 installation.

  6. THANK YOU,
    THAT WORKED A TREAT,
    had to rename the whole file as ‘adobe-lr.exe’ to make sure any further extensions were removed, after that wonderful; looking forward to see what LR4 can do with my Canon 600d’s astronomy images.

    once again, thank you
    Ian

  7. I would like to buy Lightroom 4, I have a temp version of Lightroom 3 which I have used a lot… Photography I hope will be my primary source of income, so I need to get this set up ASAP. Please help me to do that.

    Thank You,
    Jan Lockwood

  8. Hello, I was trying to download a trial yesterday with the LR4 direct links and my download froze… I tried again today and I’m getting this message:

    Access Denied
    You don’t have permission to access “…/AdobeProducts/LTRM/4/win32/Lightroom_4_LS11.exe” on this server.

    • Welcome Angel, that does happen sometimes – it’s possible to get locked out of Adobe’s download servers after a failed attempt… Usually it resolves itself with a little time, trying later, or using a different browser, computer, or Internet connection.

  9. My husband just recently bought me Lightroom 4 online and it gave me a serial code to use. We figured that I need to download the free trial first before I could upgrade. I have now tried it 3 times and when I try to access the program an “error” screen pops up saying I can not start the program. What am I doing wrong?

    Error Message Reads

    “Lightroom.exe – Application Error

    The application was unable to start correctly (0xc000007b). Click OK to close application.”

  10. I purchased lightroom 4 a while back and installed it on my desktop. I’ve recently purchased a new macbook air, and would like to install it on there as well. Am I able to do this? and how? My laptop does not have a disk drive, just wondering if this is possible. Thanks!!

    • Yes Kristen, you can just download the old LR4 version using the direct links given above (make sure to carefully follow the download instructions first), and then install it from the .DMG file you received.

  11. Thank you so much for sharing the install file for Lightroom 4!
    I bought a new PC and couldn’t find it anywhere on Adobe’s website…
