Invite a Friend to Lightroom 2 Beta

This one kind of snuck past a lot of people but it’s starting to surface now because it’s been over 30 day’s since LR 2 beta was announced. Here’s the deal. If you own Lightroom 1 then you can download and use the LR 2 beta until it expires in August. However, if you don’t already own LR 1 and you install the LR 2 beta on a machine that doesn’t have LR 1 on it, LR 2 will expire in 30 days from the day of install. Now this is where it gets tricky. You can have a friend (who owns LR 1) invite you to the full duration of the beta program. You can invite up to 5 people at a time. Here’s the link. What if you don’t have any friends? Well, my friend (see, there… I’m your friend) then you’ll have to resort to begging other people to invite you. The best place to do this would be to contribute to the discussions and make some friends over at the LR 2 Beta forums on Adobe’s website. Also, if you’re a NAPP member there’s a dedicated Lightroom forum on the NAPP member website.
