Hi to everyone!
I have a question regarding Lightroom, I bought the software a time ago for Mac and it works perfectly.
Now I'm using Lightroom on my iPad Pro, but the App wants me to buy it, it is possible to use the same serial No. I already have for Mac with the App?
I really don't want to buy it again!
Thanks and I appreciate for the quick response
What exact version number of Lightroom are you using on the Mac?
The reason you are being asked to buy is because the mobile apps are included with a current subscription:
Part of the reason it is tied to a subscription is because it isn’t just paying for the app, it’s also for the Adobe cloud sync that gives the mobile and desktop versions access to the same photos. But Lightroom 5 has no Adobe cloud sync feature.
I don't know what you are being asked to purchase because there is no version of Lightroom that can be purchased anymore. I don't know anything at all about the iPad Pro and its operating system, I'm a Windows user. If you cannot install Lightroom 5 using the serial number that you have then the only option available to you is to subscribe to one of the creative cloud plans that are currently available. As I have mentioned, there is NO version of Lightroom available for purchase.
You probably wouldn't want to have the subscription version on the iPad and use Lightroom 5 on the other computer because the catalogs are not compatible at all. Lightroom 5 is out of date, totally unsupported by Adobe, and as operating systems continue to progress will eventually become unusable.
So the old, actually ancient perpetual v5 of Adobe Photoshop Lightroom, pre subscription Lightroom.
That software was available for MACOS and Windows OS, it was never for iOS,, Your iPAD is iOS.
The Lightroom (Lr) for iPAD, is a separate app, with separate purchase requirements.
I forget if members who pay for a subscription plan can acquire Lightroom for iPAD for free, but if you do not have a subscription, then no, not free.
There are two subscriptions
Photography Plan includes, PS, LrC, Lr desktop, Lr Mobile 20 GB clouds storage. $9.99 PM.
Lightroom Plan includes, Lr desktop, Lr Mobile, 1 TB cloud storage. $9.99 PM.
