This was announced at the Nik Collections Google+. Thanks to one of our readers for the email alert!

Prime Only: Adobe Photoshop Elements & Premiere Elements 14 for $70

This offer is good for Prime members only. You have to add the item to your shopping cart and click “Proceed to Checkout” to see the sale price of $70. For a limited time, you can get the Adobe Photoshop Elements & Premiere Elements 14 software bundle in either Software Box by Mail or Digital Download (PC or Mac). The price you see on the website range from $90 to $115.

While this promotion is running, and you add to the shopping cart, you will see the price get adjusted at the top right corner of the Amazon Checkout page. Annotated screenshot crop right below of the software box by mail:

elements14_prime_bundle1

The box-by-mail is apparently stackable with the digital download promotion, I added both to the shopping cart, and they both go for $70 each (I did not place the order):

elements14_prime_bundle2

NOTE #1: this offer only works if the items are sold and shipped by Amazon itself, not by third-party sellers.

NOTE #2: this only works for the aforementioned bundle. I tried the Photoshop Elements 14 and it’s not on sale. This had been going for around $40 in a similar add-to-cart promotion during the 2015 holiday shopping season.

Lightroom now FREE on Google Play (no sign-up, no subscription)

Adobe was rather late to the mobile photography app party, so now they have to be more aggressive to recapture lost ground. Which perhaps explains their latest move, Lightroom is now free for all to use on Google Play. You don’t need an Adobe ID, you don’t need a subscription. Just install it on your device and start using it locally.

I played with it for a few minutes. On an 8-inch Android tablet, the screen feels rather small for the UI, readability is not ideal, and in general it has more of a downsized desktop app feel to it. But it’s free and it works! It will probably feel a lot better on 10+ inch tablets. Perhaps a new excuse for photographers to buy the new Google Pixel C Android 2-in-1 creature? Or that 18-inch Samsung Galaxy Viewstrocity?

If you want to sync with your desktop, then an Adobe ID and subscription is needed. They are not giving everything away 🙂

Adobe Photoshop & Premiere Elements 14 for $80 (Mac)

Mac users who like software purchases in digital download form can get Adobe’s Elements 14 Photoshop and Premiere bundle for $80 at Amazon, while PC users and those who prefer disc-by-mail get it for $80. This offer is open to all, not just Prime members.

PS: the earlier offer Photoshop Elements 14 for $40 for Prime members expired (I just tried it and the price won’t drop after you add it to the shopping cart).

Prime Only: Adobe Photoshop Elements 14 for $40

If you are an Amazon Prime member, you can get the Adobe Photoshop Elements 14 software for $40 in either the PC/Mac disc or the Digital Download. The price you see on the product page varies (it is $60 as of the time of writing). The price drops to $40 when you go deep into the Checkout page, one last step before you place the order. No coupon is needed for this one. There is a hint of this sale on the aforelinked page, the block that says “Prime Members Save More on This Product”.

When you reach the last step before finally placing an order, you should see something like this:

amazon_pho14_checkout

If the price total does not drop to $40, it means the offer ended or there’s something else wrong. Do not place an order if the price is higher (unless you want to buy it for more).

The offer is good for both the disc and the download. Sales tax collection may differ depending on delivery method and state.

Meanwhile the AfterShot 2 (not Pro) goes for $25 in the full version. You can make adjustments in the shopping cart for different options (disc backup, cloud backup, etc).

The aforelinked Corel Store offers free 30-day trials of their software and apparently Amazon has also expanded into software free trials, eg AfterShot Pro 2. I haven’t done one of the Amazon Free Trials yet, so I can’t tell you what the free-trial-flow is.
