Lightroom 5: $99 at Adorama (with coupon code)
Posted By: Adam, 08-11-2013, 11:36 AM

Adobe Photoshop Lightroom V5 Software, Windows and Mac OS 65215211


Adorama is currently running a special on Lightroom 5. After you add the item linked above to your card, use the coupon code S987654321 to instantly save $50, reducing the final price to just $99! AFAIK this is an Adorama-only special.

Adam, thanks for posting this - great deal. I'm fairly new to digital PP. Is Lightroom the best all around software for a beginner? Only other ones I have are PS Elements 10 and the OEM software packages.

..or more simply, if this is a "can't go wrong" type thing, I'll jump on this.

Haven't used Elements myself, but Lr is great for file management and image manipulation, as well as being fairly intuitive. I'd say jump on it, Tak55!

Lightroom is not primarily an image editing application (like PS Elements or Photoshop) although it does have enough editing features that you rarely need to use the others unless you need to do some PP work that LR can't manage. It's main feature is it's photo management database capability and it really excels at that.

Never mind, figured it out! Just works on regular version, not student/teacher.

Does anyone know if this would by any chance work on the student/teacher version?

Where do I enter the code to see if the discount works; do I have to fill out the shipping address and payment options before I get to that step? (I don't want to accidentally end up buying it... but I can't find the step to enter the code)

At checkout, after you've added the item to your cart I believe.

I have been using the Demo version for awhile, and I like it enough I think I'll buy at this price.

I bet this could be used together with the $30 combo discount offered with some gear.

Edit:

I tried to apply this code with a DA 50/1.8 LR5 bundle($301.xx) and it did not work. Would have been a real sweet deal to get both for $251! Still a very good deal thanks for the heads up adam.

Is this for a new complete version only? Does it applies to upgrades from LR 4.x ?
thanks

I see that now.. it is hidden within the Ajax dynamic content - that is what happens when IT department takes over and give importance to technology rather than customer needs.

You enter the code on the Payment & Billing address page. It is the same page where you input your credit card, and after you input your shipping address and shipping method; which is not really intuitive.

I don't know if it works on the upgrade, though; so don't know if you are seeing the same thing.

On the checkout page there is "Shipping address", which you have to type-in (or login into your account so that it will get filled in automatically), below that there is "Shipping Method" with a green button "CONTINUE". When you click that you will see "Payment & Billing Address" and that has "Gift/Coupon code"

Wow, that's a great deal! I'm still using LR 3. I wonder if it's worth the upgrade?

So, it does not work for the upgrade. I guess I will be waiting...

Also, you have to actually enter an address to get the coupon code thing to pop up. I was just telling Adorama I would pick the item up and it was not giving me a coupon code option.
