Yes that I know and read your blog.

But in the "About dialog" is also a string of numbers, when you hold the Shift-Key.
This is necessary if a machine is stolen or damaged to deactivate the machine at Camerabits.

Is this ID written in a plist file or is there a way to get it with a terminal command?

Best regards,
Marcus

There is no command line parameter that produces that information, currently.  I think it may be a good idea to add that capability, though I will need to discuss this with the rest of the team.

Hey Kirk,

could you discuss the feature with the rest of the team?

The next build of Photo Mechanic 6/Photo Mechanic Plus will have a new 'machine' command-line parameter that will print the 'machine ID' to stderr and quit.
