I love Humble Bundle for some of the book and software deals they offer. This one is especially good, particularly for those that want to edit photos or videos or create CG artwork.
This deal, entitled Humble Software Bundle: Painter – Create with Confidence, is an incredible software package that would normally cost you near $1000, but it in this bundle it only costs about $33.
PaintShop Pro is the latest version and is the “ultimate” version, meaning it is bundled with other related software (see the links below). It is an excellent alternative to PhotoShop. (See a comparison between PSP and PS here.)
One of the pleasant surprises for me in this bundle is GRFX Studio (Corel Edition), which is a program for creating high quality Instagram-type effects on your photos easily and professionally.
Corel Painter 2019 is a professional quality painting tool. Honestly, I don’t have the skills to fully take advantage of this program, but it’s great for converting existing photos to very realistic looking paintings.
Pinnacle Studio 23 Ultimate is a professional grade video editor. If you create videos for YouTube, you would definitely be interested in this.
And of course there is a lot more in this bundle that I haven’t mentioned. See below for details.
Frankly, for about $33CAD this is an incredible bargain. Snap it up while you still can, before the offer expires on September 9.
The following is from RedFlagDeals:

Here are some reviews and comparisons:
$33 CAN is a very good deal for this combination of near class leading photo editing, video editing and artist tools. Both PaintShop Pro 2020 and Pinnacle Studio 23 are current versions and are the Ultimate editions that include tons of great additional tools. Painter is last years edition. All of these applications will also qualify for upgrade pricing in the future as well (ie: upgrade to Painter 2020 for $33 + $269 = $302 instead of the full price of $499 and so on).
