    Anybody else purchase LR through the App store? I tried the update on the Adobe site, but it doesn't overwrite 4.3. Do I just have to wait?

    I've always update via Lightroom's Help>Check for updates menu. It overwrites the old install. However, Adobe unzips the download to a folder for the installation but doesn't always delete that folder after the install (never deletes it on a PC).

    Thanks. Unfortunately, that option isn't available on the App Store version. I'm not sure about the other Mac versions.

    I'm guessing App Store isn't showing any updates for it?

    Unfortunately you just have to wait. It shouldn't be very long.

    For some reason Adobe's products on the App store are lacking! For instance PS Elements only includes the editor{no organizer}. It is only a one machine download although the boxed set allows 3 installs. I don't think it can be updated either, at least 10 wouldn't when 11 first came out.

    I love the App store for a lot of things but for Adobe products I buy the discs.
