When I first saw this offer, it seemed too good to be true, and I initially imagined it to be free for a limited time, after which one had to purchase. However, a quick visit to the site confirmed it wasn’t a gimmick – this is the real deal.
I’ve used the free version of this software before and found it handy. It has quite a good library of presets and filters, beside other tools to add pizzazz to your pics. The filters are available in a variety of effects like Adjustable Gradient, Photo Filter, HDR Look, and Portrait Enhancer. Movie Looks, Grunge, Black & White, Antique are some of the presets. It is also possible to create and save your own presets.
Perfect Effects 8 Premium Edition works as a standalone application, and it seamlessly integrates with Lightroom, Aperture, Photoshop, and Photoshop® Elements. It is one of eight other modules in the entire Perfect Photo Suite 8, sold separately.
As the blurb on their site says,
This is a fully licensed version. It’s yours to keep forever. Requires 8GB of RAM and a 64- bit operating system, Windows 7 or higher, or Mac OS X 10.7 or higher. See system requirements. If you have the Perfect Photo Suite 8 trial or beta version installed, uninstall it first.
Initially, onOneSoftware hadn’t put any validity date and I expected it to be a 24/48 hr offer. As things stand, this offer is now valid till May 12th.
