Possible to delete source images in PPI project then recreate them later?

    Hi Exitaph,

    No this would not work, although the images would look identical, as far as licensing is concerned it would be considered a completely different image.

    I was just searching the forum for an answer to this.  I see this topic goes back at least 5 years.  This is completely unacceptable.  Regardless of the difficulty on the programming side of things, from a customer side, it's just not something I'd be willing to agree to, thus when it comes time for my recommendation for our university, most likely I won't be recommending this product.  We can't have students racking up loads of extra costs because they deleted a photo or replaced one.  There absolutely needs to be a way to filter out unwanted images or to add images to an existing project without it being considered a totally new job.  

    Hopefully, the folks at Epic will step in soon and start to clean up some of the oddities with this software.  It performs really well, but when Autodesk is already giving us solutions for free, it's hard to convince the university to adopt something else.

    Yeah I was disappointed by this as well. I imagine it uses the files hash info and that would change if you recreate it. But storage is relatively inexpensive these days.

    And I'm pretty sure you can add images to an existing project that has already been licensed. Because it's actually the images that are licensed. Not the project file.

    With PPI you are licensing the inputs (Pay Per Input). If you licensed them once, then they are licensed forever. If you add a new image to the project, then you need to license just this one image.
