    I want to install adobe lightroom on the nice mac pros at my school's lab, so I can edit my photos on their enormous monitors. Problem is that you can't install anything without admin rights. Is there any way around this? I read that using an install disc might work.

    can you just run it out of the package or does it require an install?

    Install disc -> Reset Password is your only option.

    Problem is, you've got to do it without being caught as it will be obvious you are booting from the disc, and you'll now have a computer with a different password in the room. So when they go to do a software update they'll notice.
