Also known as Murphy’s Law. Anybody who has been paying particularly close attention will know that I’ve been using the Lightroom 4 trial for the past 30 days. I ordered my full copy of the new Lightroom from Amazon weeks ago and have been waiting patiently for it to pass through my letterbox ever since. It wasn’t a big deal, though, because you can just input the key when it arrives and continue using the software.
Last night the trial expired and, of course, I had no product key to activate Lightroom and I needed to use it. So I went through the entire rigmarole of uninstalling the trial, finding my copy of Lightroom 3, installing it and then importing all the photographs I have scattered around everywhere all over again.
I get in from work this afternoon and guess what’s waiting for me…
