Well are we getting close to the actual release date.
Anyone heard anything
I will throw one more issue into the discussion of the LR V3 release date --
I want to upgrade to Photoshop CS 5 and to LR V3 and I will do so when LR V3 is available.
In prior releases Adobe provided a discount (see below) for the upgrade of both Photoshop and LR if done together.
If Adobe prices a bundle together again, I would be foolish to upgrade Photoshop prior to knowing what the bundle discount might be.
Now that my free trial to CS5 is past the 30 days, I want to upgrade but won't because the upgrade may be less expensive if I wait for LR V3 and upgrade as a bundle.
Adobe, I hope is aware of the issue that many customers are both Photoshop and Lightroom users and will want to upgrade at the same time.
Current Adobe bundle pricing (from Adobe web site) --
Get 30% off Lightroom 2 when purchased with Photoshop CS5 software.
Purchase a full or upgrade version of Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 2 along with a full or upgrade version of Photoshop CS5 ...
Are you really so naïve to think that what you, as an individual, will or will not do as far as purchasing Adobe products will affect Adobe's marketing strategy? They know what works. And when they are ready to offer Lightroom they will do so. And all your cajoling isn't going to "force their hand". So just sit back and wait and see. In reality, it's your only choice anyway. I hope someone freezes this thread.
Thanks for your constructive input!
I called Adobe Sales recently to enquire about the likely relase date for LR3. Told them I do not have LR yet, trialed the 2.x version and currently use the v3beta2. I plan to buy LR and asked the Sales rep if I should buy now (v2.7), what the upgrade policy would be or if it is worth the wait (how long.....).
The response was: if I buy now (v2) I would have to buy the upgrade once v3 is released. Free updates are only available once the official release has been announced and you buy the "old" version then. There is typically a 4 week period between the announcement and the roll-out (i.e. being able to purchase.
His recommendation was to wait a "few more weeks" unless it is really urgent to get LR now and buy v3 right away, He also mentioned somthing about "early summer"...
So, I'll give it some time still and carry on with the beta.
Hope this helps.
Look here :
If Mr.Chan takes the time to answer: "The wait will not be long. Thanks for your patience"
final release must be very close.
I think they've "warmed up the audience" enough now.
good news lightroom 3 top 5 features here watch and enjoy
Lightroom 3 is going to be annouced this monday or tuesday (6th or 7th of June). heard it from the adobe spokesman from pma australia 2010. he confirmed it when demonstrating Lightroom 3 Public Beta 2
Lightroom 3 is going to be annouced this monday or tuesday (6th or 7th of June)
Makes sense. Most significant LR releases were made on Mondays and Tuesdays. And we only have a few left till the beta2 expires.
That would be 7th or 8th?
We can only hope.
I was surprised that CS5 was released 1st.
I have been waiting for months for LR3.
Wonder if Adobe has any new features in final release that are not in Beta 2
Well.. Lens corrections (profile based) are in there..
In where? Is Lightroom 3 released now?
Not yet. You'd hear bells jingle when entering this forum if it did ...
No, not released, but you can check out Terry White's top 5 LR3 features and it's in there..
So yes, non destructive Lens Corrections are part of LR3
Its released now... purchased upgrade, downloaded it and installed it this morning.
Really, where did you download it? Looking at the Adobe site, there is nothing about it, not even an announcement.
Official Link is now active http://www.adobe.com/products/photoshoplightroom/
Thanks, downloading, now.
I also can confirm that. An Adobe employee told me and others on a CS5 seminar that Lightroom 3 will be released somewhere this week.
It's getting close. The trial download page says version 3, but the file is still 2.
I can't wait for the release. The noise reduction is so much more superior it's difficult to use 2 knowing 3 is around the corner.
