There are two editions of Image Surfer Pro. The Free Edition functionality is quite limited when it comes to building your own fusker collections and displaying videos and frames, but it does allow you to determine if the tool is of interest to you at zero cost and serves as a way of basically viewing fusker collections created by the Registered Edition.

When you try to utilize functionality with the free edition installed which is not available an informational dialog window will inform you of the limitation and possible options. The dialog will have the following general appearance with specific limitation information.
This option essentially ignores the limitation and returns you to normal Image Surfer Pro and IE control without taking the action requested.
This option will take you to the download page on the Image Surfer Pro website where the table above is available as well as instructions on how to down load the latest verions or register for the latest version.
This option will take you to the PayPal checkout page where you can choose how to pay for the registered version of the software.
Registration requires a download of the registered version of the software as the two applications are different and registering is not simply an activation of limited functionality - the free version of the software does not include the functionality in the application image.
When you register for the full version of Image Surfer Pro you will receive an email at the address you provide through PayPal with download instructions and confirmation codes.
