You can buy Lightroom 6 as a Single App licensed product (without a Creative Cloud plan), and download and install it on your desktop. Lightroom is also included in the Creative Cloud Photography and Creative Cloud All Apps plans.
If you have a Creative Cloud plan of any type, you do not need to purchase Lightroom 6. Please see Download and install Lightroom CC.
If you chose a product upgrade, you may need to enter the serial number of your previously purchased Lightroom product during the checkout process.
If you do not see the serial number screen after signing in with your Adobe ID, please see Serialize Lightroom CC trial to activate as Lightroom 6.
To download Lightroom 6 to your computer, click the Download link for your operating system (Windows or Mac OS).
Depending on your network and computer speed, it may take some time to download Lightroom.

Do one of the following:
- Windows: Follow the Lightroom 6 installer’s onscreen prompts to unpackage the downloaded file and begin the install process.
- Mac OS: In the Lightroom 6 window that appears, double-click Install.
If asked whether you’re sure if you want to open the application, click Open.
On the Options screen that appears, click Install.
Lightroom 6 is installed on your computer in the same location where your applications are normally installed, such as the Program Files folder (Windows) or the Applications folder (Mac OS). You can access it the same way you access any application on your computer.
