Get Perfect Effects 8 Premium Software For Free, For a Limited Time

By Kishore Sawh on August 13th 2014


No such thing as a free lunch? Well, whether it’s the impending conclusion of summer, or perhaps good will is just in the air, yet another photo company is giving away their software for free. onOne software is offering their Perfect Effects 8 Premium Edition to anyone who wants it with no price tag attached.

Perfect Effects 8 Premium is one of the 8 modules part of the Perfect Photo Suite 8.5. With it comes hundreds of single-click preset adjustments, customizable effects, the ability to combine effects, and do selective adjustments. With all that’s on offer, it should allow you to highly stylize your images.



The version you would be downloading is a fully licensed one that requires Windows 7 or above, and Mac OSX 10.7 or above. It’s able to run as a standalone application if you choose, but can be integrated with Lightroom and Photoshop. Normally as-near-as-makes-no-difference $100, there is no fee. onOne Software had offered this months ago and without word, the offer expired. The same can be expected of this as there has been no given duration for the offer, so get it here while it’s hot.

On that note, we, not too long ago, posted about Sony’s DxO’s film emulsion pack FilmPack 3 that they were giving away for free also. If you have not yet taken advantage of the offer and plan to, a friendly reminder that offer does have an expiry date which is only days away on August 15th.

    I think they have this available for free to try every once in a while, but I will definitely give it another shot.

    I took this up the last time they offered this and eventually bought the whole suite which went on sale after the Perfect Effects offer expired. I haven’t had the opportunity to use it much, but I’ve been doing some RAW processing and B&W testing using other software like Nik’s Collection and Capture One Pro (and Canon’s DPP). One thing I’ve found is that while the Perfect Suite isn’t perfect for all situations, their output quality is very high. In my testing, Perfect B&W was able to give much better control over sharpness than Capture One Pro even. They’ve got a huge set of Presets in Perfect Effects which are fun to play with, but with high quality output, and layer support, there’s a lot of potential in their software. A must try at the free price. Another thing I liked is that the software runs well without lags or crashes, and my workflow for my main selects is quite complicated so this definitely helps.
