Evaluating PhotoModeler

The best way to evaluate software is to try it. PhotoModeler has four modes of operation:

  • Demo – some functional restrictions
  • Evaluation – fully operational – time limited
  • Permanent – fully operational with no time limit
  • Subscription – fully operational with a time limit

When the software first installs it is in Demo mode. The Demo mode has no time restrictions and some functional restrictions (see list below).

The Evaluation mode provides the full capabilities of the software with no operational restrictions for free. This mode is time-limited. To enter this mode you will need an evaluation code from PhotoModeler Technologies or your reseller.

The Permanent mode is completely unrestricted and the license is permanent and perpetual. To enter this mode you will need a permanent license code – received after the software is purchased.

The Subscription mode is completely unrestricted and the license operates as long as the subscription is active. To enter this mode you will need a subscription license code – received after the software is purchased. See the Subscription Licenses page for additional detail.

To get further information on the product contact sales@photomodeler.com, or continue testing yourself:

How can I remove the demo restrictions?

  1. Purchase the software, or
  2. Request an evaluation code from within the software – from the Demo startup screen. Note that the download form also emails evaluation codes automatically.
  3. The evaluation code is sent by email (sometimes automatically, and sometimes manually during office hours), and works with your installed demo.
  4. In PhotoModeler, open the licensing screen (Options menu / License Management…).
  5. Press the ‘Online…’ button and enter the provided evaluation code, and press the Activate button. You will then proceed through an activation step.
