If you like to read or flip through free e-books, I spotted a couple of fairly new ones at the Kindle store. As of the time of writing, they are $0.00 to buy (but I don’t know for how long they will remain free). First up, with a June 21st publication, a 37 page Lighting Tips ebook by James Carren. Next up, the 79 page Photoshop Set for Beginners by Dwayne Brown.

The free premium app of the day at the Amazon Androidy app-store is Photo Transfer App by ERCLab. The offer ends around 3am ET on Friday (apps don’t sell out).
If you have a Samsung Galaxy smartphone or tablet, one of the Samsung Owners Hub offers is ten free presets for the VSCO Cam photo app. I don’t know if every Samsung (Galaxy) device is eligible or some of them or if this depends on registration status and such. Samsung works in mysterious ways The offer is available through the Samsung+ app on Google Play which is the new name for the Samsung Owner’s Hub. Once you install that app, go to the Promotions tab, and page down until you see the VSCO Cam offer. There is a little link thing to press in a circle on the left side (see screenshot below) to get you to VSCO Cam. There’s also an offer that gets you two years of an extra 100TB of Microsoft OneDrive cloud storage there.
PS1: I don’t know if these offers are stackable with the Galaxy Perks.
PS2: by the time you read this, it will probably be renamed to Galaxy Owners Plus Hub, or Milk Galaxy Apps or Galaxy Prime Alpha App Store 😉
This promotion ended, but every few weeks Amazon has bundles of premium (aka for-pay) apps offered for free.

The Amazon Android-ish Free Premium app of the day ending by 3am ET on Tuesday 11/11/14 is Image Blender Instafusion which does as the name suggests.
Free Premium Photography Apps: Lapse It Pro, BeFunky Photo Editor Pro, XnInstant Camera Pro, Plex (ends Sat PM)
Amazon has another free premium app promotion. These are apps that you have to otherwise pay to get. This promotion is good until the end of day on Saturday 11/1/14. A total of 40 premium apps are participating. You can scoop up as many as you want (including all of them). The photography-related ones:
- Lapse It Pro – Time Lapse & Stop Motion Camera
- BeFunky Photo Editor Pro
- XnInstant Camera Pro
- Plex (get it even if you don’t need it now!)
If your device is not compatible with the app, you can still get it by using a web browser. When the popup tells you that the app is incompatible, just tell it to go ahead and scoop it up… Another helpful thing, the latest version of the Amazon Android (Google Play) app is now able to sideload your Amazon-purchased Android apps, so you don’t have to install the separate Amazon AppStore app… You may need to have at least one Android device connected to your Amazon account before it lets you get any apps. I haven’t tried this with a disconnected account in a while, so I don’t know if they changed this…
Stacksocial is offering the CollageIt Pro software for FREE IF and only IF you follow them on social media (choice of Twitter, Google+ or Facebook) and then share the promotion on social media. They offer either the PC / Windows or the Mac / Apple. The offer ends in about three days from blog-posting date.
The Starbucks iOS app (under “Messages” in the app) has weekly freebies. This week’s freebie is the ProCam2 iOS camera app. There’s a code there that makes the app free in iTunes. The ProCam2 app requires iOS 7 or later to run, but anyone can claim the code. The promotional code is good until 12/30/14. If reading this at a later time, page down and down in your Starbucks Messages iOS app until you find it… Note: the freebie in the Starbucks iOS app is typically different from the one in the Starbucks brick and mortar stores…
