Forgive my ignorance (I've only used Lightroom for a few weeks), but I have questions about the udpate process from 5.0 to 5.2:
1. Is it free? I would assume yes, but I don't have CC, and I don't want to go through the hassle of updating only to find that I need a new product key.
2. When I click the link in the update prompt in Lightroom, it takes me to the Adobe download page, and it downloads a complete, standalone version (890MB!). Not just update files? Is this normal for Lightroom updates?
3. I went ahead and downloaded that "update" and began the install process, but so far, it seems like it's completely unaware that I have Lightroom 5.0 already installed. Should I choose a new install destination folder, or point it to the folder of the existing program?
4. I have a couple of plug-ins (e.g. LR/Enfuse). Will I have to reinstall them and/or re-enter settings for them?
I'm new enough to Lightroom that I haven't gone through all the backing-up procedures, et cetera, and I don't want to screw-up this update and lose a lot of work I've done. If those who know the update process well could offer guidance, I'd much appreciate it!
Would have preferred to have Lightroom just take care of the update process internally (like my browser, operating system and security software do)...
