Here’s a quick start guide for purchasing and setting up a SketchBook subscription for Windows or Mac from www.sketchbook.com in under 10 minutes! Since we’ve tried to cover all our bases in terms of issues you may encounter while subscribing, many of these steps may not apply. For many people, they already have an email account they can use, so that step could be skipped.
Step 1: Creating an email
Most of you will already have an valid email address; however, for those of you who don’t, you will need one to use and manage your SketchBook subscription. Use this email address to:
- Log into www.sketchbook.com for managing your account and log support tickets.
- Load the Pro features in all versions of SketchBook.
Step 2: Creating a SketchBook account
Once you’ve create your account, check your email for a Welcome email from SketchBook.
If you still haven’t received the email, check your Account Settings to see if you made a typo. If so, you can edit your setting and make the correction.
Step 3: Changing the language displayed on the SketchBook website
In some instances, the site may not recognize your OS language settings, even after you’ve logged in. In this case, to view the SketchBook website in your native language, change the end of the URL to the appropriate language.
For example, the English site would be: https://www.sketchbook.com/?locale=en-US
To change it to Brazilian Portuguese, it would be: https://www.sketchbook.com/?locale=pt-BR
Here is a language codes:
- en-US English
- pt-BR Brazilian Portuguese
- fr-FR French
- de-DE German
- it-IT Italian
- ja-JP Japanese
- ko-KR Korean
- ru-RU Russian
