Buying upgrade to PM5 now gets us PM6?
« on: November 22, 2018, 08:51:33 am »
I have a license for PM5.
Will buying an upgrade now (during the Black Friday sale), entitle me to a license for PM6 when it is released before the end of the year or will there be an additional cost?

Thanks.

I asked them the same question on Facebook and their reply was:

"If Photo Mechanic 6 is released within 1 year of your license purchase, you'll be eligible to Upgrade for free." - with a smiley added.

I'm planning to do exactly the same.

Thanks!
Still deliberating if it is worth the $15 savings since we still haven't gotten a definite release date... Sigh.

I just ordered the upgrade as an incentive for Camera Bits to finish PM6 ;-)

Yes, buying an upgrade to PM5 via the Black Friday sale is the cheapest way to get PM6.

So just to confirm and sorry to repeat, if I already have a PM5 licence I can still upgrade to PM5 (despite it not being an upgrade as such) and get a free upgrade to PM6?

Would I then be eligible for PM6 updates too?

If so I will put an order through now. Seems like a no brainer.

Yes, you would be eligible for PM6 and all of the updates throughout its life cycle.
