Purchased the Student version with trepidation because of previous reviews, but thought the savings would be worth it. I bought it and then via the Adobe online portal submitted my student eligibility proof, I had the correct product key within 12 hours. A simple no hassle purchase for me at about 50% of the normal price. The product itself does all I need in terms of editing.

I have been using an earlier version of Lightroom for a few years. It enables me to import my pictures, organise and catalog them.
I can use the develop module as a virtual darkroom to process my pictures. Why upgrade to version 5?
I find the improved tools very useful but the slideshow feature goes well beyond my old version. I can now create slideshows and export them as video.
Lightroom5 handles video as well as still images. It's an improved version that I'm still exploring.

AVOID!!!
Downloaded the software. Serial number was supplied. Set-up software. Asked for Serial number. It didn't fit the boxes given to enter serial numbers. Software failed to install. Went to Adobe UK customer support page. Faced with page after page of do-it-yourself- instructions. One hour later.. frustrated and unsatisfied and still no resolution - sent complaint to Amazon.

AVOID THIS DOWNLOAD AT ALL COSTS! I shouldn't have to spend half my day reading pages of hints and tips trying to get my new software to work. Customer support at Adobe was non existent (I couldn't find a live or mail contact link). I'm still waiting on a resolution!

The perfect companion to any budding photographer, be it not as many features as Photoshop but simple, cost effective and well made.

I am not commenting on the quality of the software which I suspect will be quite good. The problem is this download version which should be avoided at all costs. You do not get an activation code, and the product code you do receive does not give you access to Adobe support to request one. What you are paying for is a free trial copy which can be obtained from Adobe itself.

Gave a 4 as you kind of have to work out for yourself how to get your actual serial number for this!
This page explains it all:https://helpx.adobe.com/x-productkb/policy-pricing/student-teacher-edition-orderfulfillment.html
Don't be put off downloading it, just you need to go through a few more holes to get it than you might think :)

This is a great product, just dont buy the download, and prey you don't need to talk to Adobe.

I qualify for the discount, confirmed before I purchased this.

I Purchased through amazon, purchase went well, and I downloaded the software without a problem.
That's as far as I got.

Amazon provide a product number not a serial number, so after speaking to a very helpful Amazon customer support member who advised me to speak to Adobe to get a serial number. So I did.

Adobe unlike Amazon couldn't give a dam about my problem, their customer support staff gave me a link to a web site where I could enter my product number from amazon and my email and it would give me a serial number. Only problem was that the site only worked on products purchased in North America. When I told the Adobe support this, no response from them, asked if they were still on the call. They simply cut me off!!

Phone Amazon back and told them what was going on. Luckily they gave me a refund for the product as I could not use it.

Its a shame I could not use this product, as I have the previous version and really like it. However I may not use lightroom every again and stick to DXO after the horrendous attatude of Adobe.

Be aware you will need proof of eligibility from your college ( if you are a student) and proof of purchase before Adobe will give you the produce key and you will need to go through Adobe.com to get it. It took me a number of attempts

Bought it for my son who has just gone to university and is keen on photo-editing. Adobe kept on sending wrong code (1 digit short) every time I complained that the online registration process for activation wouldn't complete.
Amazon acknowledged the problem and finally refunded the money.

Pretty tricky to activate, but once it's up and running a great editing and management program. Make sure that you do have accepted student ID before buying!
