Corel has announced a promotion for Adobe Creative Suite users, who want to try a new software after the Creative Cloud disappointment.
Corel is looking to benefit from Adobe’s announcement that it will no longer release new versions of Creative Suite because it is moving everything to Creative Cloud.
The Photoshop competitor says that its suite is a powerful alternative to Adobe CC, therefore it has released a special discount campaign to make it even more attractive.
Corel announces special discounts for Adobe Creative Suite users
The Corel software developer has revealed that Adobe Creative Suite users who demonstrate that they have purchased the apps will have access to several special offers.
According to Corel, photo-editors could get a discount of up to 60% on their applications. The list of discounted apps includes CorelDRAW Graphics Suite, Painter, AfterShot Pro, VideoStudio Pro, and PaintShop Pro.
The promotion will be available until August 30, while free 30-day trials can be downloaded anytime.
CS users threaten Adobe, Corel offers them a way out
This is a bold marketing strategy which could attract the interest of numerous angry Adobe CS users. The Photoshop maker has received heavy criticism after it has revealed that Creative Suite is dead, with buyers receiving only limited support from now on.
Photographers are angry because they have been pouring hundreds of dollars in Adobe’s pockets and now they will be forced to pay a monthly fee. Overall, users will have to give even double the amount for the same features.
Moreover, many of them are claiming that they will never agree to pay for Creative Cloud because Adobe will restrict access to the programs once the owners fail to renew their commitments.
AfterShot Pro, CorelDRAW Graphics Suite, Painter, PaintShop Pro, and VideoStudio Pro special upgrade prices
Coral has announced that Painter 12 can be purchased for as low as $159. Regular users also get a discount, as the app is available for $299. Moreover, Adobe CS can buy CorelDRAW Graphics Suite X6 for only $189, while PaintShop Pro X5 is available for $39.99.
The list continues with Video Studio Pro X6 that costs only $59.99 and AfterShot Pro which can be bought for only $49.99.
All Corel programs and their respective discounts are available for download at the company’s official website until August 30.
