Topaz Labs will have several special price packages on the Topaz Studio adjustments and other products. https://topazlabs.com/blackfriday/ref/26/

From what I have seen Adobe will have 25% of the entire CC subscription plan but, I have seen the usual special for the Photography plan of $99 for a year instead of $129. That has shown up in the past at B&H and maybe others.

Have not seen anything about any specials at Phase One for Capture 1 Pro. Anyone know of one?

Skylum has a special for Luminar. They are supposed to release the Luminar DAM on December 18th. https://skylum.com/l/luminar-from-ppc?utm_source=google&utm_medium=cpc&utm_campaign=Skylum_Brand_World&utm_term=Skylum&gclid=EAIaIQobChMIyP2XxYHm3gIVhpyzCh2_AQ4gEAAYASAAEgI8jvD_BwE

On1 just released 2019 Photo RAW. Have not seen any Black Friday special. https://www.on1.com/products/photo-raw/?gclid=EAIaIQobChMIkI6p8IHm3gIVgozICh3DIQPKEAAYASAAEgJwzvD_BwE


Anyone know of any other software company Black Friday specials?

Did you mean to say that you have not seen the usual special for the Photography plan.....?

I've been looking for such a deal myself, and have yet to find one.

Adobe 25% is for CC for all apps. The Photography Plan is not on special from $129 done to $99 for a year at B&H or anywhere else I looked. I hope it will appear on between Thursday and Monday.

Not a BF deal but runs to the end of the year.
It’s UK only but if you are in the market for an i1 Display Pro (or not), it’s s great deal.

Buy the calibrator for £178 and get a free year (worth £129) of the photography plan.
So you get an i1 for £59. You could probably sell it on sealed for that!

There maybe a similar offer running in the US if you hunt around.

DxO is having a 50% off sale on everything.

Photo Mechanic 30% off IIRC.

The Lightroom Queen has discounts on her books and maybe other stuff:

Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals are popping up all over the place, including here in the UK. I love a bargain! You do too? Ok, let’s join in the fun then!

I was using the trial version of Affinity on the desktop, and I must say, I’m surprised at the relative poor performance of the program relative to LR6 on the same iMac and even Affinity for my 2017 iPad Pro. The MacOS version loads 16MP RAW files slowly (checkerboards), and the develop module is pokey. Maybe it’s a topic for another thread, but I’m a bit disappointed.

Very true! Don't even think about HDR or other processing intensive actions. The only reason I have Affinity Photo is to compliment C1 Pro for non-Sony files and scanner files, and cover areas that C1 Pro doesn't, like beyond simple masking layers. Seriously thinking about On 1 to fill that void.

I didn't get a holiday break on the pricing, but for $79, ON1 Photo Raw 2019 is a worthy upgrade for me. I had recently re-installed the 2018.5 version and found it was much improved over the version I had before that - the original Photo Raw.

Yeah, I’m glad they have a trial, because the performance is so bad that there’s no way I’d pay for the title. I don’t expect miracles, but I have an iMac with an i5-7500, Radeon Pro 570, 16gb RAM, and an SSD—it should run better than it does. Considering how functional the iPad version is, I’m surprised the performance is so different. I didn’t expect to love one and not like the other!
