There are few photo editing companies that provide as many ways to save on their products as Skylum does with Photolemur. While the one-off base price is fair, Skylum often has seasonal deals and timely offers for huge savings on full packages. More permanent means of reducing the costs include bundles for a five-license family pack or for pairing two of the admittedly expensive add-on styles together for a huge price reduction. There’s also the option to upgrade from a previous version of Photolemur for a discounted price.
Corel is surprisingly generous when it comes to PaintShop Pro. While the base price of $79.99 isn’t something to get excited about, there numerous ways of saving on the cost of the software, whether that’s through the regular savings found on the dedicated webpage or permanent options by combining PSP with other Corel software as part of a bundle. Businesses and schools are catered for, too, since bulk buying the suite will unlock cheaper per-license prices, though you’ll need to get in touch directly with Corel to access this.
As one of the cheapest cloud-based photo editing services on the market, you’d think it would be a challenge to save money on Ribbet. Ignoring the fact that it can be used completely free if you so choose, the subscription fee can be reduced in price – by a huge 50% discount – when picking the annually-paid plan. Alternatively, if you’d rather just subscribe to the premium extras for mobile use, it’s possible to save money by cutting out the desktop version completely.
There is a surprising number of options available for saving money on Photo Clip, whether that’s through InPixio’s brief sales that occur periodically or the more permanent offers that allow for money to be saved. New customers can consider purchasing the full Photo Clip Suite, which will earn a huge discount on the base price. Previous customers looking to upgrade to the latest version won’t need to buy the full thing outright, however, can instead have the opportunity to pay a significantly reduced price to get access to the latest features.
If you sign up to PicMonkey’s newsletters then you may sporadically receive news about limited discounts or special coupons, but aside from that there aren’t many opportunities to save money on the base price of the service. With only a monthly or an annual subscription available, if you’re certain you want to make use of the photo editing software for that long then you will be able to save up to 30% on the equivalent cost by paying for a full year upfront.
Xara isn’t afraid to try and poach customers from its competitors, and by providing a license key from an equivalent Adobe, Corel, Microsoft or Serif product you’ll receive a code to earn $100 off its all-in-one program, Designer Pro X – which includes the same features as Photo & Graphic Designer.
If it’s just the Photo & Graphic Designer software you’re after, however, then there are deals to be found on its special offers page, including periodic sales and 33% off for upgrading from older versions. There are even savings to be had for students and businesses, the prices of which depending on the number of copies bought.
While there are options for finding savings on Luminar via periodic coupons and discount codes from time to time, there are actually ways in which savings can be earned without the need for lucky timing. Skylum, for example, offers the option for users to upgrade to the most recent version of the software for a reduced price, and if you install the software across five different machines you’ll have earned yourself much better value.
Since Fotor can be used entirely for free with only a handful of restrictions, there aren’t many opportunities to reduce the cost of a premium subscription nor is there need for a limited time trial. However it is possible to reduce the basic monthly fee of $8.99 to the equivalent of $3.33 per month by paying $39.99 up front for an annual subscription. Since there is no money back guarantee, however, perhaps make use of the free version of Fotor for as long as possible until you’re absolutely certain you want to upgrade.
