Photoshop Elements 2018 for $60 (with Premiere for $90)

The Adobe Photoshop Elements 2018 is now down to $60 at Amazon by Amazon itself in your choice of a PC or MAC download or PC/Mac media in the mail.

Likewise, Premiere Elements 2018 goes for $60 as download or by mail.

Or if you want both, you can get the Elements Photoshop + Premiere 2018 for $90 as PC/Mac disc or Mac download. For some reason the PC download is not available. NOTE: that both the regular version and the Student and Teacher (STE) version are in the same listing, so if you are checking the different options, make sure you are looking at the correct version!

It seems to average 4 out of 5 based on 4280 star ratings over there. They don’t have detailed star breakdowns like Amazon.

Adobe Photoshop Elements 2018 for $70

The latest version, fall released, the Adobe Photoshop Elements 2018 imaging software is now down to $70 with free shipping or free download at Amazon by Amazon itself.

Corel Paintshop PRO 2018 for $55 (or $40 eligible upgrade)

Tired of Adobe’s cloudy and greedy ways of dealing with photographers? The time is right to try out imaging software from other companies! The official Corel online store has a sale on their brand new time-traveling Corel Paintshop PRO 2018 software for $55 full version or $40 as an eligible/qualifying upgrade. This is the digital download.

When you add to cart, they automatically add “Download insurance” for +$8. You can remove that. It’s a stupid thing they are doing for just $8 more, it can alienate consumers and drive them back into the greedy arms of Adobe 🙂

For other Corel software, check their latest sales at their Online Store. Here you will also find the “Ultimate” version of Paintshop PRO 2018 which goes for $15 more ($70 full version; $55 eligible upgrade).

It looks like this may be a computer-generated price-match of 3rd-party sellers. There are no digital download options available for purchase at the moment.

Speaking of app stores, one of the Apple announcements that flew under the radar, starting with the new iTunes version 12.7, the App Store will be removed from the desktop iTunes software. If you used that to manage or download apps (eg your iOS device wasn’t compatible with an app, but wanted to grab it for the future because it was free or it was on sale), make sure you keep one iTunes installation at a previous version.

Alexa Voice Ordering: 50% off Elements 15 Photoshop/Premiere combo makes it $62.50

If you have a compatible Amazon hardware device or app, you can place orders with your Voice, using Alexa, and get some exclusive Alexa Voice Ordering discounts. One such offer running at the moment is 50% off the Adobe Photoshop Elements 15 & Premiere Elements 15 bundle. Its current price is $125, so half off would make it $62.50.

The price of the software can change at any time, so that should be 50% off of whatever the future-current price will be. You can only get this discount with Alexa Voice Ordering, not with a web browser. Expiration dates are not mentioned on that page, so the offer is good as long as you see it there.

At the same page, there’s also a $12 off promotion on the Corel PaintShop Pro X9 software. The current price is $42, so the discount will drop it to $30. Again, the price of the software can change at any time, the discount is $12 off of the future-current price.

PS: it looks like the free shipping over $25 is back on again at Amazon for Prime members, but since it’s been going on and off, we may have to wait for a few days to see where it settles.
