4.0 out of 5 stars No instructions on getting student ID verified April 2, 2012
By Nicole
Platform for Display:Mac Download
This product is great, however, when you purchase it, amazon does not give any information on how to acquire the serial number that you need to begin using the product. So, I figured that I would share that info with you so it doesn't take you several days, as it has for me! First, your product code is in your amazon account software section (it says it is a serial number, but it is only a product code). Then you need to go to this website:[...]. Once there, you can register your product, upload a current student ID, and they take about 2 business days to verify your student status.

Hi Nicole,

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 see a number of reviews on here giving the product a low number of stars. Regardless of the confusion one might have had with the download, you must admit that the product itself is worth much much more than two or three stars.

I have only had Lightroom 4 for 24 hours and already I am blown away by the new controls and high level of shadow and hilight recovery is now available to me. Even auto settings for color and exposure are really really close to perfection. I was surprised at how delightful my black and whites turned out with the channel sliders. I think I will enjoy this new version of Lightroom a lot. Adobe doesn't disappoint.

I had an easy time getting my license. Not only can you use the product in Trial mode for 30 days, in case you need to send anything into Adobe, but you can also simply use your college email quickly for registration. It was that simple. I can see how there may be frustrations with those who do not have an email address associated with their school, but in Trial mode, you can buy yourself quite a bit of time to get Adobe the documents they need.

I am very pleased with the product and Adobe and Amazon's delivery.

4.0 out of 5 stars Perhaps a bit too harsh. March 5, 2013
Platform for Display:Mac Download|Verified Purchase
Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 4 Student and Teacher EditionI used LR4 with Windows and it worked well. If you try to use the Mac edition with Mountain Lion, it shuts down iPhoto and locks up your photo files. Efforts to recover the files caused some corruption of iPhoto. It just leads from one incompatibility to a really serious problem. Amazon, it seems, does not offer any refund options on this download. An expensive mistake!

After further review, I have raised my rating of Lightroom. Everything I said is true, but once I updated Lightroom to the latest revision, all of my photos on all drives were retrieved by Lightroom. The four star rating is due to the learning curve, but the software is performing as it should.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Adobe Product November 22, 2012
Platform for Display:Mac Download|Verified Purchase
I generally am not a big fan of Adobe products but I really like Lightroom 4 on the Mac. It is generally really usable, intuitive, fairly stable, and a pleasure to use. I am not a professional photographer but a power user with a lot of photos to organize and 'clean up' (color adjust, crop, etc). There is some learning curve to understand all the features, and shortcuts on how to use it efficiently, but once you figure this out, its a pleasure to use. Plan on taking several hours to weeks to learn all the features. Several online tutorials and other articles allow you to easily learn the features. Additional plugins available further expand its capabilities, and make very customizable for your needs. So easily recommended for anyone who wants to do more than basic photo organization, and wants to put in the time to learn how to use efficiently.

5.0 out of 5 stars intuitive and just amazing July 8, 2012
Platform for Display:Mac Download|Verified Purchase
I'm typically not a big Adobe fan, having had compatibility difficulties with Photoshop and Photoshop Elements. Specifically, had (still having) trouble using my Nik Software and Topaz filters w/ all Adobe products, including Lightroom 4.1. However, Lightroom 4.1. (even though I have to go through a great deal of trouble to use my filters such as launching another application) is just amazing. I've never taken so fast to an application and could more or less figure things out on my own and only needed the tutorials to do more complex processing. Not only are my photos looking great but I actually think I'm learning more about photography and post-processing the more I use Lightroom. I'm learning to look more closely at photos and images and think this application has made me more appreciative of visual elements such as color, composition, perspective, sharpness/blurring, depth of focus, etc. I shoot in RAW and it's unbelievable how you can recover and fix shots. Over and under-exposure, white balance adjustment, CA correction, distortion, etc. can all be fixed easily. Lightroom 4.1 is truly a must-have application. Since I'm an educator, I got the student/teacher discount and had no problem w/ verification and was using it w/in minutes after downloading it. Those w/out a university or school email address (.edu) may encounter problems.
