How to download Adobe Lightroom 6 (hidden link)


A reader sent me this email on how to download Lightroom 6 – apparently Adobe has removed all download links, except one – if you need LR6, you better download it right away because I am sure Adobe will remove the link after this post goes live:

“I’m sure this is info will make many of your readers happy. It’s about a long time missing Adobe Lightroom 6 update software. Adobe has removed every previously available download links to update the non-cloud based LR6 to the latest version 6.14, but there is still one hidden download option to catch the latest 6.14 update for the Windows version of LR6.

The update was also in the past general hard to find, because the 6.14 update file for Windows was called “Lightroom_6_LS11.exe” so there was never any info that LS11 means Lightroom version 6.14

Here is the last working download link to get the full Lightroom 6.14 for Windows with the file named “Lightroom_6_LS11.exe” from the adobe.com domain: http://prdl-download.adobe.com/Lightroom/60BA1251F1BC48B8B82B1B63AE8E620E/1552643270580/Lightroom_6_LS11.exe

Apple version: http://prdl-download.adobe.com/Lightroom/60BA1251F1BC48B8B82B1B63AE8E620E/1552642986882/Lightroom_6_LS11.dmg

The download is 1.19 GB and is the standard Adobe Extractor, file version 1.0.5.1, product version 1.02. It could be that the setup starts with LR CC, but if you use the LR 6 license key, it will install the LR6.”

The latest Adobe CC subscription plan rates can be found here (see also this page). A free Lightroom CC trial is available on this page (no credit card required). More information on the different Lightroom versions is available here and here. The different Adobe Creative Cloud options are described here.
