And… it looks like it’s going a bit quiet from now until Friday. The early offers are out if they’re out, and it seems the rest are waiting until Friday to start.
* 3DCoat, aka 3D-Coat, has a huge splash banner for “a $100 discount”, but their store knows nothing about any discounts. Indeed, in the UK it adds a hefty 20% VAT. Then you realise that this actually just a tease announcement, and that we won’t know the version that the “$100 discount” is to be applied to until Friday. But given the size of the discount it has to be the same as last year — for the expensive Professional and Floating Licences only. That’s a pity, as bringing the Amateur version down to $50 for a few days would bring in thousands of new users, and also switch people away from pirated versions.
* Topaz also has an pre-announcement that it will have a Black Friday sale, on Friday. Topaz Clean and GigaPixel AI are likely the most desirable Topaz items for many, if the discounts are 30%+ significant. GigaPixel now has a new “Artwork” up-scaling module.
* No movement on other makers and software I’m monitoring, such as AKVIS (their new improved Charcoal is of interest), Expressi, Redfield, Flaming Pear (Flood 2), PhotoLine, Clip Studio, Blambot comics fonts, Comic Life, and JitBit Macro Recorder.
