Specials in software today that were of interest to me, so I'm passing those on:
Microsoft Office 2010 or 2011 for PC or Mac: 1-user, 3 installs, "Family pack" $90 currently (the prices change unexpectedly). They have deals in every category, but this was just my own focus today.
Those are for the downloadable versions. It's the same price for CD ROM versions if preferred (and those are linked from these product pages), but the downloaded version stays available to you on the server for re-download and there's no tax in California on e- or purely-digital-versions.
Adobe Lightroom - In photography groups, there were mentions of Adobe Lightroom 4 downloads or physical packages for $99 (briefly $79 on the latter), instead of the usual $149 today and they seem to be in effect for Cyber Monday as well.
Adobe offers them for $99 only if you buy the $500-$600 Photoshop package too (except on Black Friday), so this is a good price.
For those interested or who already HAVE Lightroom 4, here's a great series of FREE online Lightroom 4 video tutorials by Adobe and they have similar free video tutorials for other Adobe packages. These are really well done.
ALSO of interest for Lightroom users will be two free online video guides by Michael Frye -- the first one explains the changes and how the new processes work and affect an image's appearance. The second video shows examples of processing both high and low-contrast images and discusses good settings to start with and whether the improved Basic sliders can replace using curves.
If you prefer a book-type guide to Lightroom 4, the Kindle Version of Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 4 Book: The Complete Guide for Photographers is $19.80 tonight, 64% lower than the Print List Price of $55, Amazon says, but it's 55% off the Digital List Price of $44. I don't know if the $19.80 is a Cyber Monday Week price or not, but I did buy it as it has a good rep. And that's an unusually low price for an Adobe 'Complete guide.'
