When you first use one of the graphics programs, you may be asked for a username.

You will be asked for a username if you are using a Full Site or Distribution license. The username does NOT have to be unique and your initials will usually be a suitable choice. You should use the same user name on every computer you use.

 

The username is used to divide up graphics created under the same license. If we did not have usernames, all graphics created under one license would be copied to all computers. This might mean that your computer is storing images created by dozens or even hundreds of other users. This creates a lot of unnecessary movement of information and storage of data.

 

If you use the same username on every computer you use, all of your graphics will be automatically synced between all of the computers. This makes moving your documents and graphics between computers trivial.
