Do I need a product key to activate SmartAlbums?

If SmartAlbums 2023.5.0 or later has been installed, product keys are no longer required for activation and the software can be activated with your Pixellu account credentials. However, if an older version of SmartAlbums is being used, a product key would be required to use the software, which can be found with the steps below:

If you are subscribed to SmartAlbums and have an active annual subscription within your Pixellu account:

Note: If you have an active annual subscription, please ensure that the latest version of SmartAlbums has been installed on your computer, which can be downloaded with this link.

Note: If your SmartAlbums 1 or SmartAbums 2 product key is not working, double-check to ensure the correct version of SmartAlbums was installed.
