I just stumbled on On1’s promotion giving away Perfect Effects 9 Premium for free this week. I’m not entirely sure how long the promotion will be available for, but get it while it’s up!
I have used Perfect Effects 8 Premium last year for photos such as the Chapel inside La Merced Church. It’s not a RAW editor, but more of a secondary piece of software to focus on effects and filters. I was quite surprised that it requires a powerful computer to run, though. In fact, minimum requirements are for 8GB of RAM. It ran on my previous PC with 6GB of RAM, but I did experience the occasional crash. I haven’t played with Perfect Effects 9, but hopefully very soon.
