New to forum.Need advice before purchase
« on: June 02, 2006, 03:19:25 AM »
Hi All
I have just secured a large tournament and wondered if PM will be sufficient for my needs.I would love to shoot action shots,make them available for viewing on a few computers and hopefully clients will select images for purchase.
I have done a similar setup before but used proofs on a wall and an ordering system(paper flow)
Does PM have the option of viewing images and then tagging them if a client wants more then a few for printing and can you print via PM
Any workflow suggestions welcome too.I shoot digital
Thank you and kind regards
Lionel

Sure...it can do all that.  Download the fully functional demo and give it a shot.

Yes, we allow that, as long as both copies are not used at the same time.  I.e. you can't be using PM on your laptop, and have an assistant using PM on your desktop computer.

Well, basically you need to answer the question: Am I using the same license to run more than one copy of Photo Mechanic at once?  If the answer is yes, then you need to buy another license.

Does that make sense?

Thank you,that makes sense.I will have to work out another way for multiple viewing and ordering,(Do any members have some info regarding a similar setup)or go back and do it the old way with proofs,we have about 20-30 people wanting to view images and order.
To purchase another license .....will this be $150.00 too.
Do you supply CD Rom or only web download?
Thank you for all your promt answers,very much appreciated.I will download the demo and take it from there.
Kind regards
Lionel

If you want to purchase multiple copies, we offer some discounts.  Call the sales people at 503-531-8430 and tell them your needs.

You can ask for a CD-ROM, but it sometimes lags behind in version from the web download.

As for what others do, I know that the EOS Template ordering system is popular and I plan to support its integration in Photo Mechanic 4.5.

HTH,
