I think there are a lot of improvements, but whether it's worth the $$ to you is purely subjective.

i haven't really seen that many key changes to lightroom since 3.0 It's the same with photoshop. There is almost no real reason to upgrade unless you buy the latest and greatest camera and need it to work with your software, and that is the only reason i would see upgrading. I am starting to despise adobe

I'm pretty aware that there are not a lot of changes this time around. I just keep upgrading because I have seen what Adobe does to you when you don't upgrade continually. A racket but what can you do. Oh well at least I'll never spend money on PS again.

I'm not quite sure just what dire practices Adobe are supposed to be guilty of regarding Lightroom upgrades. As far as I can tell you can upgrade to LR5 from LR1 or LR4 for the same price. As rackets go it's not a particularly nasty one.

I was not aware of that. I'm new to LR, started with 4. I remember reading about people who skipped PS5 and then tried to go to 6. A lot of unhappy campers. I'm not a cloud supporter and due to your location I know you are. I don't completely trust Adobe. Never know what they will do next. I'd hate to stop using their products as it took years to get off DPP. As long as they keep LR as a stand alone. If push came to shove there is always elements the day non could support ends for PS6 but I think it will be a while before I need to make that decision.

Contact Adobe. That would be interesting to know.

From their Buying Guide (external link) (just one click away on the link in the first post) -

Lightroom 5 — upgrade

Full new version of Lightroom 5
Perpetual license
Must own previous version of Lightroom

No mention of 'Must own Lightroom 4'.

The old policy was to allow upgrades from 3 versions back. Adobe changed it to previous version only for CS6. There was a big uproar and they allowed the 3 version back upgrade for a few months after CS6 went live. That at least gave people time and notice to get in on the upgrade pricing.

I remember the uproar and Adobe made some adjustments but since I kept upgrading every time it came out I never paid attention. Thanks for the info.

Bought and downloading now. I really like a few of the features in the LR5 beta (quicker adjustments, auto-leveling, adjustment brush is really nice). The upgrade is only $79 which is cheap in the photography world lol

It looks like owning older versions of LR is not going to be a hindrance to purchasing LR5. And it looks like the upgrade price of $79 will be applied to all upgrades.

**My link did not bring you to the download for upgrade page. Just change the box that says FULL, to UPGRADE. Then you will see from which version you may have, and click on that.

just a few of my thoughts...

doesn't matter how "cheap" it is.

its a fast quick way to make a buck for them.

it really doesn't bring anything new, minor brush change, some features copied from photoshop.
