Awesome, with quick/easy verification
on April 1, 2012
First, most of the people complaining about verification seem to be those who have questionable student/teacher status. It's no surprise they're having issues. If you're not legitimately a STUDENT or a TEACHER, maybe think twice about the student/teacher Edition :P For me it was as easy as putting in my .edu address. Wamo, code emailed to me immediately.
With that out of the way, I'm very much enjoying the upgrades with LR4. I love the additional sliders in developer mode, it really does help me bring out a wider dynamic range. I probably won't use the book function, but whatever. I'm disappointed that they dropped Windows XP support (you can't even install it on an XP computer). My school forces us to use XP on our laptops, and I know a lot of businesses are the same way, so that really sucks.
Anyway, at $79 this is a steal. Adobe -- I'll be honest, this is the first product I've bought from you, and it's because of the aggressive price cut. I'm just an prosumer/hobby photographer, and I'm a student, so I can't afford a $150 program or a $1000+ suite of programs. I'm very happy that you made the price more reasonable for someone like me, and so I showed my support by ordering it as soon as it became available. It was a no brainer at this price. I hope you continue to target my market with these kinds of deals. I can't wait to see what CS6 has to offer.
