Now shipping: Pinnacle Studio 21 software

Adobe gets the lion share of the attention and the profits from the world of digital photo imaging but they are certainly not the only company making software out there. One of The Others has a new product release, the Pinnacle Studio 21 software is in-stock and shipping in a software box/disc by mail, going for $60 with free shipping at Amazon by Amazon itself.

Cyberlink PhotoDirector 8 Ultra for $26 w/free S&H

With its expansion into mobile, it may feel like Adobe is the only one making imaging software but they are not! Other companies are still alive 🙂

The Cyberlink PhotoDirector 8 Ultra software, in the PC/Mac Disc option, is currently down to $26 with free shipping at Amazon by Amazon itself. 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.

PS: speaking of Amazon, they continue to offer the LensShifter Blue – Balanced Focus and Zoom Grip for $12 – more details on how to get the discount.

Pre-order new Adobe Elements 2018 software

It’s that time of the year again. Fall means many things, among them, a new version of the Elements software falls down from the Adobe tree! As usual, the initial prices are for early adopters, and they drip-drop down as times go by.

The individual Photoshop Elements 2018 and Photoshop Premiere 2018 go for $100 each, while the bundle goes for $150.

Pre-orders are accepted at B&H Photo and Amazon itself and such.

FREE (Google PLAY): Fast Camera HD Camera

If you are part of the Google PLAY ecosystem, for a limited time, the premium (for pay) app Fast Camera – HD Camera is FREE to own. It typically goes for $1.99. The developer makes three versions of this app, this is their most advanced app that is free for a limited time.

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.

FREE (iOS): 8mm Vintage Camera app by Nexvio

Free camera app for iOS users! The 8mm Vintage Camera app by Nexvio is currently FREE to get on iTunes. Previously it went for $2. Some features however are only available via in-app purchase (99c themes). This requires iOS 8.0 and later.

If you have an older device or don’t have an iOS device now, but you may be getting one in the future, you can still grab the app for future use. You obviously can’t get it from a non-existent iOS device, but you can grab it using iTunes for Windows ~ if you are willing to run that Beast 🙂

The app averages 4.6 out of 5, and it has over 100,000 downloads per Google Play. It is currently #31 in the Top Paid apps over there.

(ENDED) Cyberlink PowerDirector 15 Ultimate for $37

Corel AfterShot Pro 3 for $20 [digital download]

The Corel AfterShot Pro 3 is a post-Prime-Day sale for $20 in digital download option, for PC or for Mac, at Amazon by Amazon’s Digital Services, which is their digital selling persona. The key-card by mail option is NOT on sale. This is not a lighting deal, so expiration time/date is unknown.

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.

This expired: And speaking of Corel, but unrelated to Alexa Voice ordering, a lightning deal of the Amazon Gold Box has the Corel PaintShop Pro X9 Ultimate on sale for $40 with free shipping until Tuesday 2:29am ET as a PC Disc (not a download).

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.

(ENDED) Still good: Corel AfterShot Pro 3 for $30

As of a 5/1/17 recheck, this sale ended, but it is recurring every few days/weeks… This flew off the front page, but the promotion continues, the Corel AfterShot Pro 3 Photo Editing Software continues for $30, in Key Card format, delivered by mail, by Amazon itself (free shipping with Prime or $35+ order). The digital downloads however are not on sale, so snail mail patience is a $virtue$ in this particular case 🙂

(ENDED) 1-Year Adobe Creative Cloud Photography plan for $100 (Pho CC + LR)

As of a 3/1/17 re-check, the price is back up to their regular price of $120…

All the clouds are belong to Adobe!

This is not a lightning deal, so it’s good until it ends.
