Just ordered mine upgrade in Uk is £60.57 for digital and (strangely) £59.09 for them to send you the disk in the box,
Yes, but you can't use the 2012 Raw process engine in CR 6.6, so the sliders are completely different (i.e. they're the ones from LR 3.6). This means all of the processing benefits of the 2012 process are lost, which means I might as well use LR3.
In the image below, I've shown a photo of my son processed in LR4 (right) and then exported as a Smart Object to CS5.1 (left). Basically, the photo gets reverted back to it's SOOC form when exported using the LR3/CR6.6 Raw process.
ahh my bad didnt quite get you, i've not used LR4 yet...I take it you could get round this by making the adjustments in LR (on a Virt copy if needed) and opening up a seperate file in CS5 and copying that over to your working file in CS5?
I always tend to do the double raw conversions rather than smart objects anyway
edit** or is this everytime you export it uses the old engine?
You can render the image in LR and then edit in CS5.1, no problem.
But then this defeats the purpose of Smart Objects, since once you render the image to a TIFF or PSD, you lose the ability to edit the RAW.
I prefer to leave the rendering until the last possible moment, to avoid having to go back and 'develop' my RAW multiple times.
I have a bad habit of making a layer stamp ontop of my adjustment layers which kinda negates using smart objects anyway....so no prbs for me..still you would have thought they would have sorted this for the release
I have a big library in Aperture and I don't know what is a the best way to get rid of Aperture and move to LR4 and CS6. Any suggestions?Darn it...i just finally got enough courage to leave comfy ol aperture and get up to speed with LR...been login it at last...now theres a new one :roll eyes:
Is there an option to upgrade from LR3?

I know whether to get a download or box. With Apple, I don't worry because redownloading from the App Store is easy. But I don't know about Adobe.
Once you get the license # from adobe, you can re-download as many times as you need. Just download the demo and plug in the license #
1. Burn a copy (or four) of the downloaded disk image
2. Store a copy of the downloaded disk image on an external HD
2. Store a copy of the downloaded disk image on Dropbox
EDIT: See ^^^
Run both?I have a big library in Aperture and I don't know what is a the best way to get rid of Aperture and move to LR4 and CS6. Any suggestions?
Contact Adobe Customer Support with all the pertinent details: http://www.adobe.com/support/contact/Last week I had purchased LR3 at the discount price hoping to see a decent upgrade price that would of course be less than a new price. Well, looks like it isn't any less
LR3 $70, LR4 upgrade $80 = $150. The same price as LR4. dang it.
