Commonly asked Questions & Answers
Does Membership Also Unlock Your 'Color Courses' and 'Practice Projects'?
The Insights Color Library membership was the only product we offered, when Mixing Light launched in 2013. Over the years we've added Color Courses, and in 2017 we added Practice Projects. Each of these are separate products.
An Insights Library Membership gives you access to the entire Insights Library (everything under the "Color Library" tab). Only a tiny percentage of that material is ever made available in front of the 'paywall'. Your monthly fee goes to ensuring we provide 6-12 pieces of content every month and helps us compensate outside Contributors (who are also experts in this domain). The Insights Color Library can be thought of as an internet-age continuing education product.
Color Courses and Practice Projects are stand-alone self-contained downloadable products. You can think of them of one-shot learning; they're narrow in focus and only get updated if there are significant changes to the particular version of software that training is teaching. Most of Color Courses have licensing agreements we need to pay out on every sale - and even if we wanted to include them in the Insights Library, those agreements preclude us.
But... as a Bonus for being an Insights Color Library member, you get exclusive discounts to Color Courses and Practice Projects - you only need to be logged in and your discounts are applied automatically.
How Often Is New Content Added To The Color Library?
Every month you can expect to see 6 – 12 new pieces of content released on a regular basis. The exact number and mix of Video, Text and Audio articles will vary from month to month. The exact release schedule will also vary from week-to-week and month-to-month.
Can I Download Video & Audio From The Library?
Premium subscribers (quarterly & annual) can download video and audio content from the Library to their own computer. 7-Day Test Drive members & monthly members are limited to streaming only.
Do You Accept Paypal?
We do not. PayPal limits the ability of our members to manage their payment details directly on our website. Our payment processor (Stripe) gives members full featured, secure control over their credit card and debit card details, directly from our website... without us keeping ANY of that information on our servers.
Are My Payment Details Safe On Your Site?
Yes! Mixing Light doesn't store any payment details on our site. Our payment processor Stripe, processes billions in transactions each year, and is one of the most trusted online payment processors. Stripe employs the strictest levels of encryption on all transactions. Every session on Mixing Light is also protected with Strict SSL protocols, securing EVERY page, not just the payment pages.
Our SSL certificate authority is LetsEncrypt - an open source SSL provider supported by Mozilla, Google and Cisco. We've decided not to go the Extended Validation route due to the well publicized abuse of certificate authorities handing them out like candy, resulting in Google downgrading the trust of EV certificates and diminishing their value for legitimate commerce sites like Mixing Light.
Do You Offer Refunds?
If after becoming a member you decide to cancel you can do so from the 'My Account' page where you can manage all details of your subscription. You will have full access to the site until the end of your current billing cycle. Premium subscribers are typically granted refunds if they ask early enough in their subscription period.
Can I Request A Particular Topic Be Covered?
Of course! If you have any thoughts or areas you would be interested in seeing us cover please go straight to our Contact Us form and let us know. We’re always listening to what you say and need so we can offer the best topics for our members.
