  • I bought my Olympus E-M10 from HDEW in the uk even though I live in France. I would certainly buy again from them without hesitation. The only problem is that delivery can be slow because they ...
  • And here is the original jpg processed in lightroom just to show that even jpg files can recover the darks areas to some extent. Just 4 clicks in Lightroom 5. Original jpg quickly and simply ...
  • As a new mamber you will soon learn that it is folly to make posts like this on a gear forum. Just wait and see what happens! Ken C

    I have a suspicion that the non-CC version actually is the same as the CC version, for which you either buy a stand alone version or you buiy the CC version. I downloaded it but first I had to ...

    That is exactly how I feel. The whole business is quite stange. It is as if Adobe don't want to sell the software. To add to my own frustrations, because I live in France if I try to open ...
  • My probem seems to be that I downloaded and installed a trial of LR5. Then I thought I would try the stand alone version of LR6, but to get LR6 I had to install something called Creative Cloud ...
  • Thanks for think link. At this time I am trying to get rid of Creative Cloud and restore my computer to where it was just after I installed the trial of LR5. So far I have not been able to get rid ...

    You are right of course, and you say it so kindly. I have actually got over my initial frustration only to be landed with another one already addressed in a new post of mine. I want to buy LR5 now ...
  • All I want to do is to buy a copy of Lightroom. I downloaded what I thought was a trial of Lightroom 6 and it turned out to be the CC version. I deleted it. Then I found by way of a link in this ...
  • Thank you very much Sara. I think the old adage that if something seems too good to be true, then it probably is, applies here. I am always very worried about any seller with prices 50% of the rest. ...
  • Tried your link random.it and it downloaded the CC version which I do not want. I still cannot find a stand alone version of LR6

  • Only available to adresses in the USA from your quoted source. I am in France.. Ken C
  • Thanks. I think I have it sorted now! The remaining problem involves buying Lightroom. I have been trialling LR5 but  I followed a link in this thread to download a trial of LR6 and when it ...
  • Even if I try to buy my trial version of LR5 I still get directed to the CC version. I even downloaded the CC desktop to see if that helps but I stillam unable to buy the stand alone version of ...
  • Searching for the best price for Lightroom I have come across Software Depot who have LR5 [I know LR6 is released] for just €59.95. Is this real? Has anyone any experience on this seller? Thanks Ken C
  • I have a trial version of LR5 but I cannot find a trial download for LR6, only for the CC version.

  • Thanks Dave, I will read instructions as a last resort and I have already found just how much information is available about Lightroom on the net. I think I need to help my defunct memory by ...
  • Thanks Dave, every little bit of advice helps. The doubly irritating thing is that I really do like Lightroom once I get into it and it will encourage me to use Raw which is probably a good thing. ...
  • Thank you for comments even though are hardly sympathetic nor helpful. Of course I don't believe that I suggested Photoshop is intuitive. I find that I do really like Lightroom much more than ...
  • Thanks for that link, it will take some time to plough through but it looks very useful. Ken C
