Briefly: Adobe offering $30 off Elements software for Father's Day

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Adobe on Tuesday announced a special $30 discount for Father's Day applicable to Photoshop Elements 11, Premiere Elements 11, and a Photoshop and Premiere Elements 11 bundle.

After unveiling a major change to its professional-level software offerings by doing away with standalone versions in favor of a subscription model, Adobe is now discounting its consumer grade programs in time for Father's Day.

Photoshop Elements 11 shares a number of powerful editing tools with Adobe's flagship Photoshop. The latest features include Quick, Guided, and Expert editing modes, location metadata and technology that allows for the quick splicing and combining of separate photos. The standalone software also boasts an enhanced online sharing feature connected with Facebook, YouTube, and Vimeo, among others. Photoshop Elements 11 is priced at $69 after the Father's Day discount.

Premiere Elements 11 is Adobe's consumer video editing program which, like Photoshop Elements, shares a variety of features with its the pro-level counterpart. New features include location metadata support, easier organization tools and slow-motion and fast-motion effects. Premiere Elements 11 is also $69 with discount.

A bundle of the two Elements products is also available at a discounted price of $119.

To take advantage Adobe's Father's Day discount, click on the above links and enter the discount code "SUMMER30" at checkout. The promotion ends on June 15.

If you decide to never use Adobe software, it only ensures that you will never make a dime in the graphics arts industry. If that is not a problem for your career path then by all means choose some alternative.

 

Of course in almost every corporate environment they are using Acrobat so good luck with that.

Well if you want to go on full "dis" all of your recommended applications are so completely inferior, you could just as well be advertising snake oil as a treatment for cancer.

Sounds like Adobe's in a dangerous position, then, eh?

How do you figure? If Adobe felt at all threatened by those small start ups they would simply buy them and kill them just like they have done for years with countless  other companies. Remember PageMill? Just one example of a cool start up that never saw the light of day. They had a booth in '95 I think at MacWorld but they didn't make it past the first day. Adobe closed them down to never be seen again.

Do you not know monopolistic behavior when you see it? If literally nothing else comes close, and Adobe feels it can buy anyone it wants for the sole purpose of shutting them down, by making themselves the only source on the market they severely limit what they can do with everything they make and how they want to market it.

Ahh. Element doesn't support either of these. Gotta go to the big brother for that.

What this price drop really means is that the upcoming WWDC will see the release of a new, Elements-killer iPhoto. Adobe still has plenty of spies working within Apple HQs. fo shooooo! ;-)
