Re: "Free" tools for PSE5?

Mr Lynch has attempted to resolve this issue with me. The only thing I implied in these threads is that the "freebies" may be a lure, not exactly rare on the web and not an unreasonable conclusion under the circumstances. If I was wrong, I apologize to Mr Lynch for that implication.

If one, of the unbelievable high number of views of this thread on such an inactive forum, would have verified that they were able to download the free tools (even though I am unable to)this could have been avoided. Like I said before, this forum is unique to say the least...

Re: "Free" tools for PSE5?

The thread is getting a lot of hits probably because it was not posted to the Elements 5 Hidden Power thread...I have moved it. The title itself is perhaps alluring to some...and when they have no idea what it means they skip on to something else. As I said in an email, If you copy and paste the link from the source of the email into your browser, it is likely to work. There is probably some type of disconnect between your email client and the browser.

I am an author and I've been at this almost as long as Elements has been around. About 10,000 people have downloaded the free versions of various tools. It would do me NO GOOD to lie to potential clients, and if I wanted to charge for tools I would not call them 'free'. I do not need to dupe people.

I would be very interested if you would foreward your email to me (thebookdoc@aol.com). I have just tried the FREE download on both mac and PC and it works on both. I would be glad to clarify the issue and solve it.

You said:

"The small fee is reasonable, but it should just be upfront that's what it costs..."

Unless I misread, you are suggesting I am duping people into believing there are free tools and then I ask for a fee -- and you can't get the tools unless you pay. This is completely wrong. The link should be in the email...it is provided in the email under the words " download Free Hidden Power for Elements 5.1 Tools" if you have an email reader that does not translate links or if you read text-only in your email browser, that could be the issue. The link is there for those who use HTML email.

Re: "Free" tools for PSE5?

richard,

my apologies if i've in any way implied you were trying to dupe people. basically, all i'm saying here is that IF you are saying, or if anyone is saying, 'free download' instead of 'free software', this can be read two ways.

but, you're right, i shld have checked first to see for myself. had i looked a little more closely and seen that it was yours i would have known better.

Re: "Free" tools for PSE5?

I use the latest version of firefox and my email program is Thunderbird. I have never had a problem with going to a browser page from a link in the email program....I have registered twice and not received an email period. I looked in the junk mail just to make sure it wasn't there also. I just cannot even get it to send me the email???????

Re: "Free" tools for PSE5?

I just tested it and got the email right away. sometimes there is a few minutes delay. If you are getting to the page that confirms, you should be getting the email. However, I do not have a check in there to valudate the email by making you type it twice. Is it possible you had a typo? I can check my records if you tell me what email address you used.
