I wrote Comment #23. It involves a problem shared by many, as evidenced by the commonality of their complaints. The GOTD post that followed mine said that it was being "reviewed." What I would like to know is what has been done about this documented problem, & how can I/we register Photo Editor Pro now? Please reply on this page or by e-mail.

Thank you.

Follow-up Comment. I got an email from SoftOrbits with a different key and was able to successfully register the program. Kudos to SoftOrbits for paying attention and getting the registration to work. Too bad so many people ran into the same problem registering that I did.

Try to register, get the message: Error connecting activation server. Stays as Unregistered version.

Failed to register.
Getting unregistered version note after it said that the registration was correct
Uninstalled after the second time installation failed
THUMB DOWN

Unfortunately, I can't get the software to register and to stop being an "unregistered version". Sent this to SoftOrbits:
I installed today in connection with Giveaway of the Day (GOTD). It said the license key was valid and then when I hit "register", a box comes back saying "Error connecting activation server." And then asks me if I want to buy with 70% off. I respond "no", and it gives up and it is still an unregistered copy. Trying to use a little logic, I am guessing either that the server is down, or (more likely) someone by accident set the software at your site to stop accepting free license keys 12 hours earlier in the day than when it was supposed to stop.
I would still like to have the free offer, and would ask you to send me some way to register Photo Editor in spite of the (possible) error on (I think) your end. Thank you for making the offer and for helping me with my problem. Jim DeMian, Columbia, Missouri

Had to uninstall previous version & reinstall. Then it took the code.

Received Activation key from web site.
But **Error connecting activation server.**

Thus, still Unregistered, and day is ending!

Ok, I tried to install this, got registration code, entered during install, program still says it's unregistered. Went to SoftOrbits menu, Register, entered code, green text said it was a valid code, clicked Register button (or whatever it was called), get "Error connecting activation server". Tried many times, exited program, restarted, tried again, waited 10 minutes, tried again. No way to register. Running Win 10 and using Shadow Defender in case this tries to kill my other SoftOrbits licenses (so far it hasn't). Uninstalled. This one wasted over an hour of my time. I was interested when I started, not any more.

Uninstalled!!!
I entered the license key and got it registered, and installed the software, but I saw in the title bar that it was unregistered. I closed the program expecting to find the "unregistered" disappear when I restart the program, but it was still there. So, I don't want it at these conditions, I won't bother myself with an evaluation copy.

Ootje,

Thank you for making those great examples. That really helps. You are adding a lot of value here. Thank you.

The GAOTD version is 3.1 that apparently sells for $49 on the vendpr's website, not $79 as shown here. There is no "Pro" version I could find on their website either. Perhaps the vendor can explain this? Perhaps the GAOTD team can comment on what their process is for venting their giveaways or whether they even have one?

I'm confused, I jumped through all the hoops, got a registration key, which said it was accepted by the software and I wind up with an unregistered trial version. It states that the number is only valid during the giveaway period and the giveaway clock is currently at over 6 and a half hours left.

Doesn't seem fair, they have all my information based on a promise of free software and I get nothing but an "unregistered" version.

Please advise.

It says 7 hours to go but when I tried to register it said registration server offline. Yes, my internet is working fine. Also, when I installed it, it did remove the registration for my other SoftOrbits programs. Thanks SoftOrbits, you really know how to make yourself unwelcome.

I cannot activate the software as I keep getting this error: http://prntscr.com/f9ginr
I even tried to disable the firewall to no avail.
Any help please?
Thank you.

I can't find the "pro" version either.... While this software claims to be PE Pro (GoD version)...it does appear to be the $49.99 PE 3.1 version listed on the website. I installed it, clicked on the about, and it tells us the giveaway version is PE 3.1...the same software that is listed on the Soft Orbits website for $49.99.

I'mot that impressed for $80 or for $50...it's a bit primitive for me to use, but hey, sometimes that's what you get for "free".

Certainly not worth the time and the effort. There are many free editing programs that are much, much better.

Gave it a try using a complex image and worked very well, better than expected. Simple, straightforward, tidy layout and does the job! Keeper!

Does this also unregister other SoftOrbit sofware already installed?
This uncertainty prevents me from even trying it.

Some examples.
There are some spots on the photo's, because the lens or sensor is dirty:
https://www.dropbox.com/s/dyh5ataj2l4s33o/VlekkenLens.png
I did select the spots; with selection A the result was not that good:

And with selection B the result is better:

Ootje, this are really good results given the fact that it with a SoftOrbit program.
Most freeware programs are lightyears ahead of this one. So do not waste your time by trying out buggy and useless programs like this.
It is a keeper for the wastebag.

Ootje, thanks for more examples, I always appreciate it when you test out the programs here. Cracks in the concrete disappeared nicely, I'll give this program a try. Will turn on Shadow Defender first to make sure it doesn't unregister my other SoftOrbits programs. If I hadn't seen your examples, I would never go through the trouble of Shadow Defender - download - install - reboot, because I lost Sketch Drawer and another SO program trying to install a different one. Hopefully they have changed their tactics. I like their programs but need to feel trust with a company.

Does not accept RAF or CR2 files,so it's no good to me! Looks a bit amateurish anyway!

Ok, I'm a little confused.
Always like to check the developers site for more details before deciding if it's useful
The provided product link is for SoftOrbits Photo Editor, priced at $49.99 for home or $199 for business
https://www.softorbits.com/simple-photo-editor/order.html

What is the product provided here that is priced at $79.99, I can't find a SoftOrbits Photo Editor Pro version on their website.
Does it have more features that the cheaper SoftOrbits Photo Editor

The picture on the box when you register looks to me like the $50 version...

Reply   |   Comment by Rae Perez  –  Last month  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+19)

Rae Perez, I also explored the products on their website and couldn't find a "Pro" version. This is another way I feel SoftOrbits doesn't want me to trust them. "Let's make the giveaway look even better by inventing a higher price and more impressive name for a less-expensive product". Not good for customer relations. I hope they read these comments and clean up their act. They might do very well with better prices and an honest marketing approach, would like to see them succeed!
