Lightroom 5 now available
« on: June 10, 2013, 04:12:32 AM »

The release version is now available for download.

So far I can't find anything new that wasn't in the beta, so it's a bit disappointing that unlike previous releases there's no new treats we haven't seen.

No help file though, it just goes to the LR4 help system.

Edit addition;
I see in the LR journal of Adobe I'm wrong. I missed:-
"Share your photos using the Behance Publish Service" and "Expanded the range of Radial Filter’s feather slider"

I don't think anyone else has noticed, and it's not documented, but AutoSync now affects local adjustments. For me that's a treat - a huge timesaver.

I guess that's one of the 400 bug fixes they mention.

No, I have always felt it was a dumbed-down design choice. If anything, this new behaviour may be the bug.

Well John, the changes to 'filter keywords' function that you have also highlighted are very useful.

Maybe more so for you hierarchical keyword fans, Tony!

Some improvements to improve the ease and speed of adding keywords are LONG overdue.

If Adobe want the DAM features of LR to be taken seriously, and they're a major factor in tying people into the product long term, they need to keep developing the feature set.

Agreed, though I might just question how many people run up against limitations in that area.

Also available on subscription.

From the Adobe website – http://adobe.ly/12ARtIG
“From first look to final image, Adobe® Photoshop® Lightroom® 5 makes everything about digital photography easier, faster, and more amazing. Perfect your shots with powerful new adjustment tools like the Advanced Healing Brush. Efficiently organize all your photos and share them almost anywhere. And now that Lightroom is also available in Adobe Creative Cloud™, making good shots great is only the beginning.” (my emphasis)

But I’m not sure how making Lightroom available on subscription makes “good shots great” ?!   ;D

Ah, but it did go on to say that "is only the beginning". After all, you can share them in your Behance portfolio ;)

I don't see where Adobe is offering Lightroom on a subscription basis, unless it is included in the full multi-package Creative Cloud. At $50 a month, that would be an expensive way to get an $80 software upgrade!

I think Adobe could make a lot of photographers very happy (and quiet down all the noise about CC) if they offered the Photoshop, single application, with Lightroom  at (or close to) the single application subscription price of $20/month. I would certainly take that offer.

From what I've read LR isn't available as a single app via CC, only as a part of the whole suite.

Don't know if this will be the case with future releases but LR5 is a free update for CC members.

Is that with the single application license or the full Creative Suite license?

You might want to take notice that you can no longer buy the up date to Lightroom on Disc (you could with 4); also it looks like you have to buy a license for each individual computer you put it up on.

According to BH Photo http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/buy/Adobe-Lightroom-5/ci/21801/N/4030778802?cm_mmc=EML-_-NewAnnouncement-AdobeLightroom5andEvent-_-130610-_-Body_Retail_PreOrder

They will have the box version starting June 13th. So it looks like you can still get the Disc version. BH will have the update version and full version available.

Pretty sure the license still allows installation on 2 computers and the serial numbers are cross platform.

As usual, Adobe's tax-avoiding strategy of basing its "UK" headquarters in Ireland means that UK consumers are charged VAT at the Irish rate of 23% if they buy a download.

The answer is to download a trial version then buy the boxed set from Amazon.co.uk, post-free and at the proper British tax rate and then enter the registration key from the boxed version into the download within the 30 days of the trial period.
