The Executive Summary

I really appreciate your help testing these experimental versions. I won't post program updates with known problems unless I specifically need help tracking down that specific problem. With each new program, there will usually be a list of new features or changes that need testing. These test versions have all features enabled, along with some additional features to assist with testing and debugging. Major changes will be added gradually and tested individually.

You should keep these experimental versions separate from your regular working version.

The Fine Print

The most difficult part of fixing problems is often recreating them. In some cases, people may discover a problem but not remember exactly what they did. In such cases, post what you remember and perhaps others can experiment and try to recreate the problem.

These experimental versions are fully functional, but the Editor features expire in 90 days. After the 90 days, you can still open and view all your photos. The 90 days starts when I create the new version which is the date shown after the version number in the "About" menu. Each new version posted will work for another 90 days. Only the Editor features stop working. After testing is done, there will always be a free viewer version. Editor features in the release version will require an authorization code. Details about obtaining an authorization code will be announced with the first official release. There's more about differences between the versions on the features page.

Photo Sieve also leaves a copy of the zip file email attachment in the same folder.

Check the online help forum to see how many authorization codes have been awarded.

The offer of a free authorization code for qualified testers ends after 50 codes have been awarded, or when the first tested version is released, whichever comes first. We reserve the right to determine who qualifies for a free authorization code based on total hours documented in the log files, and what each tester does during each session as indicated by the log file entries. If you're using Photo Sieve to add tags and descriptive text while it's running, you will likely qualify. We look to see if the log file shows that various program features were used throughout the 10-hour period, and will award activation codes to the first 50 people who qualify. There is no preference given to those submitting longer log files. All decisions are final.
