Default Complimentary copy of Photoshop Lightroom is now available.

As a (former) RSP user I've got today an email of Adobe that included to get a free serial for v1.0 of Lightroom.

I will start testing soon and keep you informed.

Well, most often I want to see it for myself. I was a beta tester, but only got hold on the v1.0 version today (The smiley seats post was my first conversion).

Just needling you. We need to know more opinions. There was an interesting thread about its worth, and I put in a quick Develop Presets example to show possibilities.

A decent program in my opinion, but yes, you may like something else better.

I did a search and found nothing on Camel but have heard reports elsewhere with problems people had downloading their free copy. There was one suggestion that seemed reasonable that the number of people trying to get their free copy overtaxed their system but there is always the question of compatiblilty with certain browsers or operating systems not to mention firewall or cookie protection s/w. Ordinarily I'd just try it and fail, change something and try again but the notice from Adobe is quite clear that we get only one download and I have no idea when in the process we will be credited as having used up our one life. Just as I have no desire to be the first kid on the block to own Vista, I admit I'll feel better when we hear more success stories from those who braved the download rush.

Keep on posting. As far as I'm concerned this timing could be better. I'm still trying to figure out the changes that came with the new Camel (can't love the loss of features like notice of posts to my threads). There will always be those of us who would have prefered seeing what Pixmantic could have done with their very useable product. Adobe usually assumes we have a gig of resources for every year of our age so I can only assume that Lightroom will finish off my hard drive but I'll enjoy seeing what else is waiting in the wings.

Will it convert 40D images on a Vista computer?

The only real problem other than the download not working (over taxation, like you said), is that people fill out the "form" and it doesn't give them the serial number (Of course, this is for RSP users).

I have heard that people just redo it and it appears in the specified box.

If that fails, or kills your "one life", then I'd contact Adobe.

Also, click on "Quick Links" in the top right, scroll down to "Subscribed Threads" and it will give you replies to your posts. Also, when viewing the whole board, any posts you replied to will have a graying check mark just to the right of the center, under the word rating...

...that is what happened to me, it did not show the serial number , redoing it resulted in 'this URL has already been used' so I contacted Adobe...

...awaiting their answer...

Did you allow access to the Adobe site for Firefox, or did you use IE instead?
