The Last Day for onOne's Summer Deal

Have you taken advantage of onOne Software's summer deal on the Perfect Photo Suite? The deal ends tomorrow, June 26th 2014. If you've been procrastinating, it's time to act. The details:

  • Perfect Photo Suite 8.5 ($129.95)
  • Creative Live Workshop Collection ($116)
  • Endless Summer Preset Pack ($40)
  • Light & Process eBook by Nicole S. Young ($10)

All for $99.95! The suite works as a plug-in to Aperture, Lightroom and Photoshop Elements. If you need Photoshop CC/CS5/CS6 integration, there's also a bundle including the Premium edition of the suite for $149.95.

Update: It looks like the deal is extended one more day to Friday June 27th.

Here's a photo from Florence, Italy I stylized tonight in the suite:

The squares of Florence transform as the sun crosses the sky and drops over the horizon. By day, bustling street markets teeming with tourists and locals alike. By night, an escape for children and adults alike.

I used Perfect Layers to blend two images. I used the darker frame for the motion in the carousel and lighter frame for the surrounding square and buildings. The composite was then stylized in Perfect Effects.

A feature of the new 8.5 suite I used for this image is the ability to have multiple masking bugs on a single layer. That feature helped me quickly isolate the carousel to selectively apply effects to segments of the image.

If you've ever read this blog before, you'll know I'm not just blowing smoke. Perfect Photo Suite 8.5 is my go-to tool for post-processing. Grab it now before the summer sale ends. You won't be disappointed.
