UVLayout can be purchased in three different versions: Professional,
Hobbyist or Student. There are no restrictions on who
can buy what; anyone can buy a Student license if they're happy to
accept its limitations.
There isn't a separate purchase for either of the
Windows, Mac OS X or Linux installs. You
simply buy the license you'd like (i.e. Professional, Hobbyist or
Student), and then download whatever installer is appropriate for
your system. All licenses also allow you to install UVLayout on
multiple systems, so you could run both the Windows and Mac OS X
installs of UVLayout if you wish.
Please download the
free Demo version
UVLayout on your system before purchasing.
