Anyone purchased or upgraded yet?

I'm waiting for a boxed upgrade one.

I downloaded the Lightroom 4.4 trial a couple of weeks ago and liked it so much I bought a copy right away. I did not realize LR5 was just around the corner but luckily I qualified for a free upgrade to LR5 due to my LR4 purchase being so close to their announcement. As a relative newbie to post processing in general, I've been very impressed with LR in general with it's workflow/image management as well as the breadth of tools that come with it. Exploring all the various presets that are available out there has been an eye opener as to what you can do once you take the photo. An eye opener for me for sure.

Anyone doing a lot of keyword and geotagging updates and finding that LR5 really gets bogged down to the point it pretty much stalls? LR4 never seemed to exhibit this behavior. I even had difficulty getting control of the mouse cursor to use task manager to kill the process.

Consider yourself lucky if Lr4 is running fine! For me both are already too slow to browse efficiently!

I deleted everything. I won't consider it again for personal use, at least if performances stay the same.

What day did you purchase it? I bought LR4 on May 12th. I applied for the complimentary upgrade on the Adobe website with a scanned copy of my Amazon receipt last Friday. But as of today, I have not heard anything whether yes or no.

I purchased mine on May 25th, 2013, also from Amazon. I submitted the case, uploaded the receipt and it took a few days for them to get back initially as I'm sure they were fielding a lot of requests like that at the time. Once they picked up the case it was not too long until they sent the download/license number details.

June 10th was the official announcement for LR5. I think the window is 30 days, so hopefully you are good.

There is more to it than that. I don't have an SSD, yet LR4.4 and LR 5 beta both ran well in my laptop. There is at least one guy I know of who has a super system and he never could get LR4 to work for him. On some systems there is a conflict that just won't allow it to run smoothly.

Sorry, but LR4 worked perfectly fine for me and for 99% of what I'm doing LR5 is the same if not slightly better. LR5 just seems to have some sort of resource leak that LR4 didn't suffer from when doing large amounts of keywording or geotagging (thousands of images in 50 to 250 image "lots" during a session).

What are your computer specs? Mine is "old" but still powerful enough - i7 930 @ 2.8 GHz, 12GB RAM running at 1600,Win 7 Pro, OS running on a SSD, 6GB/s WD HDD data drive with close to 1TB free space.

So get this, I purchased LR4 on 5/21/2012, but decided eh, what the heck, I'll apply for the complimentary upgrade anyways and see what happens. I submitted a copy of my proof of purchase, and they approved me for the upgrade. :mrgreen:

How is that even possible?

I personally have run Lightroom on three different computers including a 4 year old desktop, a 5 year old laptop and a brand new Windows 8 desktop. While it ran slower on the older machines, performance on all three was new quite acceptable. It's really all about how your machine is configured. It also helps if you understand how resources are allocated and how to get the best performance out of your computer.

I got email today that they are sending my case to the dedicated team for the complimentary upgrade. So there is hope for me.

Looks like somebody misread the date on your request.

WOW! Hilarious. I guess they misread the year. Good for you.

You were right on. Woke up this morning to see emails from Adobe telling me that the complimentary upgrade was approved and to go to Your Downloads in my My Adobe account to download LR5. :lol:

Downloading now.

Nor sure about that. My first complain was about browsing RAWS, 1/1 previews, so it's probably not about disk read/write speed, but more about processor and RAM. This has been discussed before, and from other posters experience, there is not much to do about it, except using another software for the first step, preview and selection of large quantities of RAWS.
