Adobe released the new Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 5. It’s now available for preorder at BHphoto, Adobe US, Adobe DE, Adobe UK and all other Adobe country stores. US pricing is $149 for new customers and $79 for the upgrade. A preview can be read at Dpreview.

UPDATE: n future Adobe plans to shift all new Photoshop releases and upgrades on their subscription based Cloud Service.  This is going to become very expensive for all Adobe customers. it’s time to look elsewhere for cheaper alternatives!

    Admin, please, don’t spread false news. Tom Hogarty, head of the Lightroom team, clearly stated that Lightroom will be continue to be available on a non-cloud, non-subscription based purchase model. There is no indication that Lightroom will be available as a CC-only product.

      sorry. I updated the post. I am talking about Photoshop.

      Standalone will be available BUT additional new features will only be available for subscribers only. That was what I read.

      • mahler

        But these additional features will be related to raw editing on mobile devices and syncing the edits to your catalog via cloud services. This makes totally sense.

        • Anonymous

          Whatever these new features will be, they would be available for CC subscribers only.

          • stu5

            Actually that is not correct. The new features talked of will be for the way it talks to Photoshop not the adjustment features in Lightroom itself. So basically the CC version will be no different to the bought version.

    Might make the move finally to Lightroom, will mean I have to rebuy Nik software but it’s suddenly got cheaper now too. Looks good.

  • I’ve been a satisfied Gimp user since 2008. It has fulfilled all my (modest) post-processing needs. On the rare occasion I shoot in RAW mode, RawTherapee has been doing the job just fine. Never felt the urge to hand my money to Adobe.

      For me Darktable does the job.

    I seems that LR5 final has bug in Noise reduction and Sharpening, so I wait. http://forums.adobe.com/thread/1229132

    Oh, is 43rumors moving to an allaroundrumors platform? ;-)

    Preorders? Downloaded it from Adobe website this morning.

    Given LR5 beta is valid until end of June, and the final release (which apparently has no additional features over the beta version) has a 30 day trial which takes you to end of July, there’s no rush.

    P.S. UK pricing for upgrade is £57.64 including 23% VAT (I think this is because Adobe Europe are based in Ireland)- excluding VAT it is £46.86 (cost to business users). At today’s FX rate that is €55 or $73 – so cheaper than USA pricing!!

    Exactly: Everyone can download the Programm from the Adobe website!
    I work with the the final LR5 since this morning

    • J Shin

      How is it working?

  • kalel

    it will have lens correction like dxo optics pro on m43 cameras or not?. thats very important to me.

    • The Adobe Lens Profile software has downloadable lens profiles for a good number of Panasonic and Olympus lens. The only one that’s not available for me is the Oly 75mm.

      • Maxi Claudio

        Can you point us to these LR lens profiles? I need the 20mm 1.7 and the 14-42mm. Thanks!

    • Lightroom is using the correction information embedded in the RAW file. Most AF m43 lenses by Panasonic and Olympus have those information. The ones that don’t have those information normally don’t need it. However, after using this information normally a slight distortion remains on which the manual lens profiles can be used.

    of valuable data, thanks for providing these kinds of data.
