5.0 out of 5 stars No problems registering for me.................. 8 July 2012
By Jenny
Great service from Amazon as usual, item arrived in 4 days using (free) super saver delivery. After trying the 30 day trials of both Lightroom 4 and Photoshop CS6, which are both free to download from Adobe, I decided to plump for Lightroom 4 as it has the most useful tools for my needs. Hint: download Lightroom 4 and use it for 29 days, then go to adobe and download and install the 4.1 upgrade, which resets the trial period to 30 Days. I can't say enough good things about LR: There are powerful and customizable image file handling and cataloging tools, superb image manipulation tools and flexible file output options, to name but a few. There are in depth, professional tutorials available from Adobe's site and YouTube. I found no problems registering the software and received my serial number within 48 Hrs, although they say this can take up to 36 hours. I simply photographed my payslip, Photo shopped it to remove any sensitive info and then saved and submitted it as a JPEG. I'd willingly pay the full price for LR, but the £40 Student/Teacher reduction makes this software an absolute steal.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cut down editing time and the use of photoshop 3 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase
Using Adobe Lightroom has seriously cut down my editing time, it is really well laid out meaning I can easily edit and organise my images without having to interrupt my workflow by switching between two programs. I now simply use lightroom with the help of photoshop once in a while when my editing tasks are too advanced for lightroom. If you haven't tried it then take the time to download the 30 day trial and give it a go.

1.0 out of 5 stars really hard to activate 25 April 2012
By Nicolas
Verified Purchase
I can not recommend the student edition of lightroom 4. The experience to get the license key is very poor. I received my purchase on April 2nd, I have opened a case with Adobe and have supplied additional information requested by them. I am a student in a master program at a public UK university. To this date I still have not received my serial number. A phone call to Adobe support is painful, it takes you several minutes to get through a menu to reach the right person, it required 8 minutes of waiting time and once you have a customer service associate on the line, you need to repeat what is mentioned in the support case and then they finally hang up on you. I'm not buying any Adobe products anymore, they just don't treat their customers with respect. Activating an educational license could be done so much easier.

Update: after 25 days, one long phone call and a long one-hour text chat with a customer service associate, they finally gave me my serial number. The software can be good, but I don't think it justifies the trouble I had to go through to get my serial number.

5.0 out of 5 stars Easy to activate 1 Jun 2012
Verified Purchase
I will not add further to the extensive reviews for this software. However in contrast to the other reviewer, I only wish to report that my activation was a painless and rapid process - under 24hrs! It is great value and well worth the extra bit of hassle in order to get the cheaper price!

2.0 out of 5 stars No Light in My Darkness 24 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase
A bit too complex for simple soul like me. I can manage (and love/use all the time) PhotoSuite (easier but it's not Photoshop) but this just confuses the life out of me, even with Scott Kelby's book to guide me. I got LR to help organise the thousands of pictures I have but I am no farther forward and feel I have wasted my time and money. Maybe a college course would help.

3.0 out of 5 stars Version 4.1 & FAST CPU are essential 18 Jun 2012
Verified Purchase
Loading up version 4.0 was a disaster and unusable - am running dual screens which I believe is known to suffer serious performance issues. 4.1RC2 was no better, but 4.1 is just about usable on my box - Intel quad Core 2 Extreme overclocked 33% with 8gb ram overclocked 20%, and 3-disk raid-0. With 4.1 still not happy when processing raw files from a D4 however, so just ordered kit to build new box - spent more parts than have on D800E... Now you see why performace is a big issue for me, 19GB files from the D4 vs. 75GB from the 800!!

I liked the fill light and recovery sliders in 3.6, not so sure the highlights and shadows sliders are as effective in 4, but then maybe I should have better control of exposure when shooting. Have compared final images from LR with same from Nikon's NX2, and you'd be hard-pressed to see any difference. Nikon's NX2 has no such performance issues, nor do I struggle using Aperture on my MacBook. The map function is great when using GPS. Overall, would I recommend LR4? In summary it seems to me one needs a very high spec machine (£1500+) to get anything like decent performance whatever you may think of the application.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Product, Great service from adobe 10 Sep 2013
By Si
Verified Purchase
I had a very easy time registering my product with adobe. I sent them my proof of eligibility, simply a scan of my id card and then later that day I contacted an customer adviser via online chat. They were very helpful and since I had already run out of my trial period they confirmed my student status and sent me my serial number right then and there. Very helpful service and of course the product itself is great, a really nice way of editing and storing photos and the service from amazon was top class as always.
