Lightroom 4 Soon?
« on: October 22, 2011, 05:24:09 PM »

With the half price sales on Lightroom 3, are we expecting version 4 soon? Are there any rumors? How does the timing match up with past upgrade cycles?

If you're a student / teacher, have a student/teacher in your family, or know a student/teacher who will cooperate, you can get the Student and Teacher edition for about $70 (search Google). It's the full product, too, not a cut down version, as near as I can tell.

The sales I've seen have been for very limited times and then they expire. I'll try to remember to post a link here when I see another one.

Re student versions read the fine print. OK to use IF you qualify. Don't expect reduced price upgrades though.

In general, the next Student edition will cost less than the upgrade cost of the full version anyway, so the lack of an upgrade price is hardly an issue.

And I know people who can get copies of Lightroom for much less than that too!  If you are taking the time to visit LL I would assume that you are a keen photographer - in which case is the full price really so high for such a brilliant piece of software?  Just buy it - if you take the time to learn how to use it you wont regret it I can assure you.

Bob, is there some functionality you are desperately needing? Just curious  :)

I'd like:
    Soft proofing (isn't that on everyone's list?)
    A healing brush instead of a heal spotter
    The ability to create custom metadata sets for display (without Jeffery's sometimes awkward plug in)
    The ability to create new metadata fields
    A tool to merge keywords (such as after importing a catalog)
    Arrows on each adjustment slider to use in making slight bumps (without going to the keyboard)

Nothing earth stopping - just some evolution

And add some more layout capability in the print module, notably prettier and more configurable text overlays...
