Thanks Op. Saw this earlier and forgot. Was able to pick it up just in time. Only really wanted painter as I've let my Adobe CC lapse. I'll see how I like it compared to using Photoshop the last 10 years...
Just a heads up in case you were unfamiliar with this Corel software suite: PaintShop Pro is the most direct replacement for Photoshop in this bundle as it has near the same feature set for a wide variety of photo editing, retouching and composition tasks. However, Painter also replaces some Photoshop functionality as it relates to its natural media abilities (yet Painter is far more versatile and extensive in comparison).

OK, well, I guess this is a popular bundle as its expiry came and went... it now looks like they extended it for another 7 days.

This bundle will now expire on October 16th. Huzzah.

Edit: @sxtra, you're quicker to the draw. ;)

So these tools are way better than the default stuff that comes on my phone ehh? :D

Was looking around for Photoshop or Premiere to pirate but I guess I will pay for this since it's 2019 and I have a job.......

I've purchased other Humble deals in the past. Great value for sure and I like that it can be downloaded from steam.

Can anyone confirm if the software can be downloaded from Steam? I like that convenience.

Couple people mentioned that you can spend $1 on it now and upgrade later to get the other software ... do you have to upgrade before the promotion ends in a week or can you upgrade for example next year and get the extra software?

Thanks,

I bought the more than average USD$25 bundle. I guess i will use this for years to come. Are upgrades for free?

Minor complaint:
for mac, a couple of the major software is missing, notably: Pinnacle Studio 23 Ultimate, PaintShop® Pro Ultimate

A lesser complaint is that nothing here is for mobile.

I tried Pinnacle studio 23 ultimate last night. HD video seems to work fine. But it doesn't work with 4K video. I already purchased Microsoft's HEVC extension and the video can be played by the default Windows app, but the 4K can't be played in Pinnacle's preview window. Only audio comes out. My CPU is a i5-7400, 8G RAM, video card is a 8G AMD RX480. The spec is well better than what is said in the requirements.

The CPU is at 100% when the 4K is in the edit window, but the GPU is almost 0%. I have to use task manager to kill it every time to exit.

Am I the only one that has problem with Pinnacle?

The ability to upgrade only lasts for a short period of time, often a week or so, but there's no indication exactly how long it will be in effect. As Elrondirio noted, there have been some bundles that did not allow upgrades after closing, but fortunately this one does. I wouldn't bank on it being more than the aforementioned week, though.

To anyone that missed the deal, I'm only going to use the Pinnacle Studio so if someone else wanted all the photo programs shoot me a pm and we can do some _cheap_ cost share.

Problem solved. I need to disable the Hardware acceleration in the preview in order for it to work. Corel support is very helpful and knowledgeable. They knew exactly what I was talking about. Perhaps, this is a known issue. Hopefully, they will come up with a fix soon.

Is anyone finding Painter 2019 to be rather laggy, with occasional temporary freezing? While my system is a few years old (i5 4590), it exceeds the recommended specs with 16GB RAM and two SSDs (system and Painter on different drives).
