Hi everyone, I wanted to re-install Lightroom 4 on my MacBook but the Adobe support list doesnt have the installer for Macs, just the Windows one is available.

Any help on this would be much appreciated!

The Download Photoshop Lightroom page says "Contact Support" for LR 4 on OS X.  Since the page provides the download for Windows, I'm guessing that there may be some serious problems with LR 4 running on newer versions of OS X.   Have you tried contacting support?  (That's often an exercise in extreme frustration with any company, more so with Adobe.  It's hard to trust whatever any one person at Adobe Support says, given the number of reports here over the years about incorrect information from support.)

But last month, someone noticed that the Windows download link was actually for Mac.  From that thread, I was able to reconstruct a URL that works: http://download.adobe.com/pub/adobe/lightroom/mac/4.x/Lightroom_4_LS11_mac_4_4_1.dmg  . You could try this, but note my warning in the previous paragraph.

Hello

I have this problem as well.  I looked at that thread you mentioned and the url referenced for lightroom 4 is:

Keeping Lightroom Up-to-Date

When I go to that link, I do not see any download for Lightroom 4.  I realize this product is quite old but I still find it useful and would like to continue using it.

Thank you

Steve Hall

I did click the "contact support" link, which brought me to these forums.  I am downloading the link you reconstructed and will give it a go after it downloads.  Thanks for the pointer

Yeah, you have to dig hard to find the chat link or a phone number.  This forum is primarily user-to-user, with occasional visits by low-level Adobe support.

Hello Steve. I'm trying to upgrade to LR4 from LR3 because I jut got the Canon 5D mark iii and it is not compatible with LR3.

Did that link that John sent work for you?

Thanks,

You can't upgrade from LR3 to LR4 with any links. You have to purchase it. And since Adobe doesn'tsell LR 4 any more, you'd have to find a 3rd party seller. You ought to upgrade to LR 6, which Adobe does sell, if your operating system supports it.

Very nice, thanks!

The link still works.

But Adobe is too XX to realize it themselves...

I just spent almost 3 hours with so-called "customer care" and they finally sent me a link to another website!

There's also a link on MacWorld.

Even this Forum is not working, as I try to type this it keeps jumping to the top of the page.

I am happy that there are sensible alternatives to Lightroom on the market. I will never upgrade to a subscription-based Lightroom...

See the answer marked as "Correct" earlier in this thread. Does that not work?

I've tried the link, and it flys by for the first half or 3/4 (4 min for full download) but then crawls to saying 1-2 hours. Then it cancels eventually. But my speed is good. Is anyone else having this problem?

I was able to successfully download it just now. Try again in a bit or on a different network connection. If after a couple hours it still doesn't work, send me a private message on the forum with your email address, and I'll WeTransfer it to you.

Good. It was likely a problem with the Content Distribution Network that Adobe contracts with, which can have problems in some parts of the world but not others.

Which Mac operating system are you running? If Catalina, then Lightroom 4 will not install or run.

Hi John, Im running Yosemite so am hoping that it should work. I'm pretty sure I had run LR4 on this laptop. I had an iMac and was running it on there but have since sold the iMac and my USB drive (not a great move in hindsight). Only realised recently I had the LR4 CD but no means of getting it on my laptop.

I think borrowing or buying an external CD drive is your only choice. I don't think you will find a download link.
