You can read the full details in Capture One’s official bulletin, though this offers so many alternative scenarios for existing users that they do become a little hard to follow – but perpetual licenses will no longer offer feature updates or even traditional upgrade discounts.
ON1 software is running a 25% off Black Friday sale on ON1 Photo RAW including both the perpetual license version and the ON1 Everything and ON1 Everything Plus subscription plans. It does not look as if this deal extends to ON1’s Professional Plug-ins like ON1 Effects.
Capture One is one of the most expensive photo editing applications on the market, and in my opinion the professional quality, tools and results it offers are well worth the cost. But this Black Friday, right up until 11:59pm November 28 CET (Central European Time, so that’s 10:59pm GMT and 05:59 Eastern Time), the whole Capture One product range is up to half price.
The star of the show is DxO Nik Collection 5, which is on sale at half its regular price – but there are savings to be had across the full range of DxO software too. But you’ll have to be quick. The DxO Black Friday sale started at 10am CET (9am GMT, 4am ET) on Monday November 21 and will end at 11:59pm local time on Monday November 28.

There’s no definite date yet for the release of Capture One 23, but the company is running a special offer for new users where, if you buy Capture One 22 now, you’ll get Capture One 23 free. So what are these new features, how excited should we be and will it be worth existing users paying to upgrade?
PhotoLab 6 brings some important updates, including even more advanced ‘DeepPRIME XD’ processing, a new, wider working color space, a more advanced ReTouch tool and the ability to get Projects better organized with folders, or Project Groups.
It’s probably not a great surprise, as from the moment Luminar Neo was launched, the fact that the older Luminar AI stayed on sale seemed pretty odd.
