Black Friday deals
Black Friday is here, and as it’s always the best time of the year to stack up on photography software, services and tutorials, I will share with you here the ones I have found most interesting and worth wile. Not that many yet, but I think there will be more as we get closer to Cyber Monday.
I will update the list as I find more of them, so the numbering is in reverse order and the latest added ones will be on top. So let’s have a look :)
Oloneo Photoengine has been my go to HDR software for years now. And right now you can get it with a huge 55% discount. They don’t offer it so cheaply often :)
13. DxO Software
If you wanted to get the new Nik Collection 2 (for me the most used plugins in photo editing) and wanted to get onto the new updates, not is the best time. DxO offers 50% off on all of their software right now.
12. Peak Design
Peak Design also likes to offer a lot of discounts for Black Friday. They just announced a new series of bags, so they have a nice 20% discount on the v1 line. Also there is a 15% discount on Clips and Straps and 10% off from their Travel Line.
11. Fstoppers tutorials
A lot of Fstoppers tutorials are on sale, with the code BF2019, but I would specially look at the ones from Elia Locardy, the Photographing the world series. They are not cheap, but they are huge and give you a lot of great content.
Imagenomic is another maker of great plugins. I have been using Noiseware for years now. And if you do portraits, you should try Portraiture from them. They have a sale from the 26th November to the 2nd December with the code thanks2019.
9. Clip Studio Paint
Clip studio paint (also know as Manga Studio) is not a photography software, but for drawing. Still, it’s one of the best and one can get it as low as 25 usd today. I did buy a copy long time ago :) So if you like to draw, this may be for you.
8. OnOne Software
OnOne offers a Black Friday bundle for their Photo RAW software today too. You are not getting just the software, but a lot of bonuses on top of it.
Affinity also offers a 30% off discount on all their software, so if you are looking for a cheaper alternative to Photoshop and Illustrator, you should check out Affinity Photo and Affinity Designer.
6. Topaz Labs
I have been writing and also using all the recent AI applications from Topaz Labs. Especially the Gigapixel and DeNoise became a permanent part of my workflow. And right now, they offer a crazy bundle deal, for all their software, with the price going down from 639 usd to 299 usd. Get more info directly on the Topaz Labs website here.
If you are looking for a place to make a beautiful portfolio website, you can have a look at Pixpa. There you can create a site in minutes, including galleries, store and a blog. There are multiple plans you can choose from, starting from $6/month. Right now, until the end of the year, you can get 50% off for the fist year with the code BFHDRS50.
4. Dotphoton Raw
This is quite something different. Dotphoton Raw is an app that compresses your RAW files, without changing the file format or lose in quality. If you are always running out of storage space on your HDD, this may be for you. And they even have a free option, so you can try it out for yourself. Right now, with the code BLACKFRIDAY, you get get 25% off lifetime and yearly licenses.
ACDsee software offers allot of different photo editing programs, and right now at discounted price (up to 70% off). Just head over to their store to check out the specific discounts.
2. Raya Pro
If you are looking for a Photoshop plugin that adds a lot of blending and photo editing functionality, you should take a look at Raya Pro by Jimmy McIntire. He currently has a 25% discount on the panel. I use this panel when editing every single photo. It makes the whole blending much more easier.

1. Master exposure blending video tutorial
As usually, I will start with my own discount. From today, until the end of the month, you can get my video tutorial series for 20USD instead of the usual 49USD (that’s around 60% off). You can buy it from the Master exposure blending page or directly here with Paypal.
