$69 for Lightroom 3. Today only! I know LR4 will be out soon but I'm guessing it will be cheaper to upgrade from 3 and at $69 it's a pretty good deal.

//www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/720705-REG/Adobe_65081059_Photoshop_Lightroom_3_Software.html

It appears to be out of stock now but says available 16 Feb. May still be able to order at the sale price.

Damn! I just bought it yesterday from Adorama. For $79.99 Ohh well :)

Just placed my order, the progress bar froze and I had to close the window, but I did get a confirmation e-mail. Thanks for the tip! My trial version is about to run out.

I was wondering if $69 will be less than the price of the upgrade!

Assuming were within the grace period now...upgrades are usually $99, so buying one at $69 now might be equivalent to a $30 discount!

And I thought the $99 price at Newegg over the weekend was good, LOL. This is almost free.

SEG I can't answer that other than to say LR, as I understand is great for cataloging photos via it's library. I'm sure many can comment further but that's the reason I just purchased it. I guess I'll have to read some tutorials and begin the laborious process of archiving all my photos......ughhhhh.
I do believe it's easier to batch standard corrections for quicker workflow as well. Also taking a chance that I will want some of the new features in LR4 and upgrading may be cheaper than purchasing new when released.

Others can confirm or deny my hope here.

Does anyone know if the LR cataloging utility is much different or better than the Organizer built into Photoshop Elements 10?

And for the UK crowd - £39.99 in PC World at the moment. Bargain!

Lightroom is a good every day tool geared towards library management, developing photos with global edits, a limited set of spot and localized changes, printing and publishing photos. If you want to get into more advanced editing, you'll still need photoshop. There is a free trial, so best thing is to just go and try it.

Will be able to upgrade from LR 2 to LR 4 or do I need to upgrade from 3?

It looks like you will be able to...Adobe had announced a 1 version update policy earlier but apparently backed off for 2012 due to user pressure. What I read anyway.

Amazon has Lightroom 3 for $96.00 and it in stock.
02/16/2012 05:26:16 AM · #14
LR 3 Student and Teacher Edition is $75, the LR 3 Upgrade Edition is $90 and LR 3 Full Edition is now $135 (no Stock)

Sounds like a great deal, I use nothing more than Lightroom with a few plugins, it's all you need believe me.

Dang, I bought LR back in December for $200 so this was a GREAT deal. I think they were also offering the PSE10 and PE10 bundle for dirt cheap as well but I didn't jump on that, and maybe I should have. I had the trial of both but didn't use PS that much and Premiere ran slowly on my 2007 laptop.

jagar: I agree, I have LR + the Nik software suite (buying the whole suite ends up being a pretty good deal) and I don't find I need anything else. I have PSE10 but the trial ended awhile ago and I haven't paid for it yet. The only thing I used it for was stitching some panos together.
