Currently this function is deprecated, and will be dropped soon. Sorry for the inconvenience. 

 

 

You can use your Google, Facebook or SoundCloud account to sign In to our site.

 

The advantage of this system is that you don't have to remember a lot of different usernames and passwords for every different site. You can just use your Google, Facebook or SoundCloud account, that you use very often. That is why a lot of sites have already implemented this sign in system .

 

Adding an external sign-in:

  1. Login into your Image-Line account and navigate to your personal data page

  2. Open the 'External Login Provider' tab

  3. Click on the 'Connect' button for the provider you like to add (in this image for example SoundCloud)

  4. General info: To be sure where you send your private information, always look at the site url in the browser address bar when you get the username/password box (for gmail it has to be ...google.com, for Facebook - facebook.com, for SoundCloud - soundcloud.com, etc.).
    a) If you are already logged into SoundCloud, you only need to allow Image Line Software access to your SoundCloud account




    b) If you are not logged in, you will see a log-in window, continue to log-in and allow access




  5. After you granted access, you are now able to use these external sign-in providers to sign in to your account, we recommend testing the login
    You are now able to use one of these buttons here to log-in, but remember that they don't work without being logged-in into their service before

 

Deleting an external sign-in:

 

  1. Login into your Image-Line account and navigate to your personal data page

  2. Choose the external sign-in provider you want to unlink and click on the 'x'

  3. Click on 'Yes' to confirm the unlink-action

  4. You are now unlinked from the selected provider

Old steps:

 

You can use your Google, Facebook or SoundCloud account to sign In to our site.

The only thing you need to do is to sign in normally to your Image-Line account page and enter your Google, Facebook or SoundCloud account id under the "External sign in provider" section, and you will be able to sign in to our sites just by clicking on one of the links in the sign-in page. If you are already signed in to Google, Facebook or SoundCloud you will only be prompted to allow access to your public information. You can also use your Google Apps account id for your Google id, even if it is not @gmail.com.

 

The advantage of this system is that you don't have to remember a lot of different usernames and passwords for every different site. You can just use your Google, Facebook or SoundCloud account, that you use very often. That is why a lot of sites have already implemented this sign in system .

  2. Now to test the external sign in you can sign out from our site and use one of the external sign in links in the sign-in page.



  3. When you click on a link you will go to the external sign in provider (Google, Facebook or SoundCloud) authentication page, and you will be asked to enter your sign in credentials to sign in to their system.
    To be sure where you send your private information, always look at the site url in the browser address bar when you get the username/password box (for Gmail it has to be google.com, for Facebook - facebook.com, for SoundCloud - soundcloud.com, etc.).



  4. After you sign in to the external sign in provider site, you will be asked to confirm that you allow our site to access your account id information. This is needed to compare it with the information you entered in the "External sign in provider" section.



  5. After you confirm you will be signed in our site with your account.
