3.0 out of 5 stars No instruction about how to register!!! April 13, 2012
By Stev
Platform for Display:PC Download|Verified Purchase
The product itself is wonderful. But there is no instruction about how to register it!
Note: the product key is not the actual serial number. You need to go to a website. Google "adobe student eligibility verification" and click the first result(amazon bans web address in review).
Then use the product key to register. The fastest way is to enter your school e-mail address when registration, so that you won't need to upload a picture of your student ID. Then the serial number will be in your e-mail box.
Good luck!

Hi Stev,

Thanks for bringing this up.

The instructions for submitting the product code and validating your student eligibility are contained in a file called "amazon STE ESD instructions.pdf" that's a part of download version. (I've asked the Educational team and Amazon to change the name of this file. They plan to name the file "IMPORTANT - How to validate and activate your product.pdf" to help make this more obvious)

Sorry about that.

User can submit their product code and credentials here: http://www.adobe.com/go/edu-validate

I love this product - it's great for peeps who don't have a working knowledge of the technical aspects of photography, but want to make their dark pics light, their old pics look fresh, and to saturate colors. I'm sure the program does more, but this is a perspective from someone who has very limited experience.

As far as the getting the serial number. Once you download and install the product, it comes up with the usual screen of needing your serial number. Yes, not the product key number, but the serial number. Copy and paste this link: [....]/go/edu-validate and it will give you directions on how to get your serial number. Since this is an education discounted software, you're going to be putting information about your school in there. Like the other reviewer said, it's easier to put your school e-mail in because it will populate your school's info quicker.

5.0 out of 5 stars No Problems Here August 5, 2012
Platform for Display:PC Download|Verified Purchase
Just purchased this software download, and had no problems. I had a trial version of LR4, and fell in love with the program. When I saw that they had a student edition on sale for $59.99 here on Amazon, I decided to go ahead and purchase. I had read reviews from others who had trouble with their student verification, but my experience was seamless. I entered my school email address as recommended, filled out a few boxes and received my serial number immediately with no further need to print or email anything. With download time, registration, and installation, my total invested time was less than an hour for the entire process! I could not be happier, way to go Adobe!

5.0 out of 5 stars Improved November 4, 2012
Platform for Display:PC Download
I hesitated some time before upgrading to Lightroom 4, because of some bad reviews. I finally got version 4.1 two months ago and I have not used the old version since. Lr4.2 is slower than Lr3.6, but this does not bother me that much. (My computer is over two years old and has 4GB of RAM). Lightroom 4 is simply much better in some crucial areas.

Like suppressing highlights - in version 3, if used heavily, it really compromised the quality of the image, changing colors etc. You can update older photos to the new process and see the improvement. The new options in the Adjustment Brush and Graduated Filter are also a godsend. With the Sharpness slider in the Brush you can almost effortlessly remove or suppress the wrinkles, wherever you wish. I used the Clarity slider before, but it did not work nearly as well. You can also adjust color temperature selectively with the Adjustment Brush - handy in mixed lighting situations. But remember: these two tools (in all versions) sometimes remember previous choices, so you often have to click Reset when you change to a new task or a new picture.

Watermarking the photos is also much more flexible as in older versions .

I do not have the patience to wait until all pictures are imported and start viewing and adjusting them at once. This is usually OK, but on some rare occasions Lightroom 4 stopped making previews. It resumed, when I changed the module or did something similar. Once Lightroom crashed when I tried to stop the import process - but it crashed after importing correctly the pictures.

Overall I recommend Lightroom 4 (now 4.2). It is a really powerful program to improve and catalog your pictures.

Great easy and user friendly software to use! Great for making quick adjustments on the fly and organizing all your photos. Remarkable adjustment features and options. Not as complex as photoshop and a breeze for any new time or veteran photographer! 5/5 stars

1.0 out of 5 stars Not the fastest way to get Lightroom 4 up and running! September 24, 2012
Platform for Display:PC Download|Verified Purchase
I have used this software as a trial version and know that it's excellent software. Why do I give it 1 star? Adobe's customer service has been ridiculous. I saw the comments from the manufacturer in answer to reviews saying that it's difficult to get the serial number for this product. I immediately went to(...), put in the product key that Amazon provided and used my student email to verify. I was given an email saying it could take up to 2 business days to get my serial number. This was Thursday 9/20 and I'm in the middle of a project. I really could not wait 2 days, which is why I bought the download version of the software. I waited for 30 minutes and was finally connected to customer service. They said they could not do anything, but gave me the email for Identit-e. I emailed custserv@identit-e.com and I waited. On Monday 9/24, I have still not received a serial number or a reply email from Identit-e. So, I went on Live Chat and was told by two different reps that they could not help me, that there was no phone number or live chat for the Identit-e site and that they hoped I'd get an answer by email eventually. I asked who I should go to for a refund, Amazon or Adobe, and the customer service rep said that they do not provide refunds. I asked to speak to a supervisor and was told that there was no supervisor. I called and after 1.5 hours I got a call back and tried to explain that there is clearly an email issue and I need another way to contact Identit-e. The woman confirmed that there is nothing to do, but wait and email custserv@identit-e.com again if I want. This is absolutely unacceptable!
