P.S.  $99 would seem to be a reasonable upgrade price (maybe I'm nutz).....hard to say why someone who probably spends way more $$$ on tons of other stuff wouldn't spend a hundred bucks to upgrade their primary software (assumging LR is someones primary software).  If LR can get softproofing in the next release....it most likely will be my primary (I mean "only") software.

Cheers and enjoy!

P.S.S.  Jeff (Schewe) is hopefully enjoying a well deserved pint at the Twisted Spoke!  Cheers brother.......  ;-)

Naw...I've been hanging around until the embargo time of 12:01AM Eastern time (11:01PM Chicago time) and it's too late to be drinking and driving (and I'm pretty sure the Spoke doesn't have free wifi).

Anyway, I've been working hard with Martin Evening (he's here in town with me) on our new Photoshop book (top secret, tell nobody!)

:~)

I just downloaded it ad it looks good, not used it in anger yet though. Is there a release date for the tutorial you have done? I brought Camera to print and like the style.
Cheers.

Just went to purchase and was re-directed to the overseas Adobe store and quoted US129 for the download version. Perhaps I am getting old and tired but I fail to see how this is not a rip-off. But I'd be quite happy to be shown to be mistaken.

I'll see your $129 and raise you   . The LR2 upgrade download is roughly USD 160 from the UK Adobe site. Sigh...

Still, great software, and I'm upgrading as I type.

Heavens above.     I just checked the Australian site and they are being charged about US$157.
I was going to wait a few months and see if it came up on ebay, but I think I've just changed my mind. David

$99 (€63) is fair. However, the German price is €120 ($188) which is twice the US price. This makes me sad - even more so because I use the English version and don't care (and don't want to pay for) the German localization.

Taquin,

It's a rip off like the CS3 fiasco and Adobe know it.

Their press release is also inaccurate by indicating a price of £69.00 and no mention of the 21%VAT to be added - until you go to purchase the product of course.

Part of the Adobe press release -

Pricing and Availability
Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 2 is available now through the Adobe Store at www.adobe.com/store in English, French and German with the Japanese language version planned to be released at a future date. The estimated street price is £175 for new users with an upgrade price of £69 for registered users of qualifying Lightroom customers. Recommended system requirements are Macintosh OSX 10.4, 10.5 1 GHz PowerPC G4 or G5 or Intel® based processor, or Microsoft Windows® XP SP2 or Windows Vista Home Premium, Business, Ultimate, or Enterprise, Intel Pentium 4® processor, 1 GB RAM and a 1024x768 resolution screen. Additional information on product features, upgrade policies, pricing, and language versions is available on www.adobe.com/products/photoshoplightroom/.

I can purchase all manner of software from corporations at servers active in their own country of residence but Adobe still play tricks regarding download prices - there are no taxes involved for UK residents purchasing from the USA - a paperwork tax exercise only occurs for services - no different when I sell a digital image license via the internet to a US company as VAT is exempt.

We must be paying for the extra computer coding to spell the word colour correctly!

I just bought the upgrade here in Sweden, and the price is 1070 SEK (175 USD), not twice the price as in Germany, but still very high. As I run a company I get the VAT back (25% here in Sweden). So the price for me to compare is 860 SEK (140 USD), which still is 41% higher.

And I will for sure run it in English, hate using Swedish translations of programs, it is just to
weird! So it feels stupid paying for something I don´t need.

I wonder how many Adobe users here in Sweden actually use their programs in Swedish... would be interesting to see a poll on this.

Note: I tried to buy it from the US site, but my adobe ID was locket to Sweden..

A question:  I have LR v1.4.1 and LR Beta 2.0 both installed.  When I get the LR v2.0 upgrade, do I first have to uninstall the other 2 versions, or do I install the upgrade over one of the older versions?  Also, what happens to my monster library, which would take hours to re-import if I have to do it from scratch?

I won't defend the price, but the question is not how many Swedes use the English version, as how many Swedes CAN'T use the English version. It might be cheaper or more convenient for many or even most to use English, but for those who don't speak English, not having the translation would mean being shut out.

I wonder how much of the extra costs of German, Swedish, etc., versions comes from the specific costs of translating, with that amount applied to expected sales in that specific area?

Also, for Europeans -- the tradition here in the US is to quote prices without sales tax, which is something like VAT. I think the reason for that is that each separate state, and many individual municipalities, levy their own sales tax, so on items that carry pre-printed UPC codes and prices, it would be difficult to show the total before it's calculated at the cash register. For US products, you simply must understand that anything purchased from a store will have something between 4% and 9% added as sales tax. Sales tax does not apply to most things bought through the internet if it is shipped to a state different from the one the store is in...in most case.

Americans going to Europe for the first time often think the prices are terrible, but at least there's no sales tax. 8-)

uninstall the beta and then just install V2. It will confirm that you want to upgrade your existing v1.x catalog.  Process went smooth for me.

I do find it to be expensive, but it might be because I am using LR less and less because of what I find to be better conversions from other vendors's offerings for my Nikon and Mamiya files.

I have not tried 2.0 yet though, any hope that they might have improved the demoisaicing?

Cheers,
Bernard

Well Australia has no other language requirements (not that I would agree that this should have an impact) and we're paying over US$150.00 for the upgrade and US$500.00 for the full version. It's discrimination, plain and simple. Disgusting!

Agreed, I am not a user of LR, but was thinking about giving it a go with V2, but certainly not now. Not interested in supporting exploitive companies products.
