I have been using Photo Mechanic for the past couple of weeks as the first stage of my digital photography workflow. I love the app, it is fast, simple, and has a very clean UI. My trial period expired yesterday, but I didn’t notice it until I went to use Photo Mechanic at close to 1am. No problem, I thought “this is a great app and it will definitely be part of my workflow going forward; let me upgrade my trial to a full license and continue my work.”
To my surprise, I went to PhotoMechanic’s web site and discover that they have not yet enabled web sales. Are you kidding me? This is 2005 and you haven’t enabled web sales? You give out a free trial of your software and then you force people call you during normal work hours to get a license?
In all honesty, this policy is now making me reconsider the wisdom of using PhotoMechanic for my workflow. Such a great application, but backed by such a poor practice - unbelievable.
