Still haven’t found the photographer in your life that perfect gift yet? Want to avoid the big store queues but don’t think the local gas station’s supplies will be able to cut it? Well, how about some software? There’s no shipping to wait for, just buy and download – although some listings offer a CD/DVD option as well.

There are still a few Christmas and holiday deals going on, so why not check them out?

Skylum has a couple of deals going on right now for Luminar 4. One is just Luminar 4 on its own with a $10 discount, but there’s also a massive Luminar 4 bundle which includes 6-months of SmugMug Pro ($250 value), PDF Expert ($80), 1 year of ViewBug Pro membership ($139), a free Rocky Nook eBook ($45) and 20 free prints from Parabo Press ($10) all for the bargain price of $129 (regular total price – $454).

Corel is also running a special deal on PaintShop Pro 2020 Ultimate right now. Instead of the usual $99.99, you can get it for $31.99. And the Amazon Exclusive listing also includes the free ParticleShop Plugin and a 5-Brush starter pack valued at $39 ($60 off the regular price, and $10 cheaper than the “Pro” version sale price).

Pinnacle Studio 23 Ultimate is available for a fairly significant discount right now, too. You can pick up the video editing and screen recording software right now for $75, rather than the usual $129.95.

Cyberlink PowerDirector 17 Ultra sees a $20 discount and is currently available for $79.99. Cyberlink’s PhotoDirector 11 Ultra is also available for $74.99, a $25 discount off the regular price. Or, you can purchase the two together in a bundle for $119.09 ($20.90 off the regular bundle price).

For the HDR addicts, Photomatix Pro 6 is on sale right now for $79. This presents a $20 discount over the usual price for what is arguably one of the better HDR applications out there, especially if you want to keep your images looking somewhat realistic.

We’ll add to this if we see other photography and video related software deals still floating around, but if you know of any, let us know in the comments below.
