Gde Swart I discovered Flame Painter last year here at BDJ. It is awesome creativity software. Brilliantly simple to use with great results. Now it's under $10? Don't spend a lot of time thinking about it, just get it. It's a blast! After you've played with it for a bit, make sure to check out their YouTube channel for some very helpful tutorials:

Peter Blaskovic - Escape Motions Hello Roman & Michael,

if you find the Pro version more suitable for your needs, in the Personal edition go to "Help" -- "Upgrade to Pro version".
You can apply $30 discount for the Pro version, which is still more convenient for you than buying it for the full price.

In case of any other questions, do not hesitate to contact Flame Painter support at support[at]

Have a great day!

dtouch I havent heard of this tool before. But Tried the demo and loved it. And purchased it. I will most probably upgrade to pro. Does the discount to pro always works?

Peter Blaskovic - Escape Motions Hello Chris,

yes, the discount for "Personal to Pro" Upgrade is not time-limited, if this is what you asked :-)

Escape Motions - Dec 6 2013 at 10:33am Copy Link
Ben Paturzo You can also go to their website and order the Pro version for 39, which is easier than buying the personal then upgrading to the pro.

Just beware: last time FP was offered, the great "deal" was for ver 1, which was good for 4 days, when the company released the "new" version 2. Of course, you got a chance to "upgrade" for a "small" fee.

Guys, if you buy this program -- and it IS a fabulous program -- don't be surprised if within a week the "new" will appear, which you will be able to upgrade for a "small" fee.

Kinda shady, no?

Gde Swart @Ben Paturzo
I remember they were quite upfront that 2.0 was due soon and there would be a discounted price if we wanted to upgrade. Combined, the upgrade was still less than buying 2.0 alone. I would only think it was "shady" if they deactivated the old 1.x and forced the upgrade. What you're describing sounds more like a clearance sale. We got what we paid for with the option to upgrade.
You're right, it is a fabulous program. Personally I'm so enamored with Flame Painter I can't wait to see what the next version offers, but I think Amberlight is where they're focusing their efforts right now. I think the plan is to offer current FP owners a discount on Amberlight when it is released. It looks pretty interesting too.

Randy Martin Sent you an email as suggested above but no response.
Here it is again.

Can I apply the $30 to the Pro version and run it on my laptop and desktop?

Or do I have to have the personal version to do that?

Can I buy a version of each?

It's now 5 hours later, running out of time.

Carmen Mazza Ok, so I must be blind. In the Flame Painter program I go to help and then choose upgrade to pro version. I thake me to their site. I see upgrade, click it but there is no pricing for personel to pro upgrade with a $30.00 discount. If I click see pricing all I see is the full price for the pro version for $59.99. Help someone.
Dec 6 2013 at 4:58pm Copy Link
Randy Martin I see the discount (50% off; $29.99 instead of $59.99) But it says it's only good for 24 hours (which is NOT what it says above. Besides, when I click on the upgrade, nothing happens!!!

Bruno Verschraegen Hi, purchased and downloaded, but Windows reports that the publishser cannot be verified (not unusual) while - worse - my Norton Internet Security 2014 flags the downloaded file as unsafe and removed it. Threat name = WS.Reputation1...

Norton allows me to restore the file, which I'll do trusting tht everything will be alright and that it is a rare false positive but would like to be reassured that the e-junkie download link has not been tampered with.
Dec 6 2013 at 10:33pm Copy Link
Ralph Bressler WS.Reputation1 isn't even a false positive! Norton makes this decision based on the popularity or number of user that have downloaded the file. It is a pain in the neck!

Mark Johnson I am interested in purchasing this program, but like some others have said here I would most likely be upgrading to the Pro version. I understand that is a $30 upgrade, per the posts here. Somebody stated above that you can directly purchase the pro version on the company's website, but I do not see that, so I'm assuming that upgrading to pro after the $8.99 purchase would be the best option.

However, I am still concerned about that. When I go to your website, I see upgrade options, but that does not include upgrading standard to pro.

Carmen Mazza stated above, "In the Flame Painter program I go to help and then choose upgrade to pro version. I thake me to their site. I see upgrade, click it but there is no pricing for personel to pro upgrade with a $30.00 discount. If I click see pricing all I see is the full price for the pro version for $59.99".

There is no answer given here to the upgrade problem reported by Carmen. It sounds like if you purchase the program and click on 'Help' then 'Upgrade', you go to the same exact upgrade webpage that I am able to see without purchasing the product. I definitely do not see an option there to upgrade from Personal to Pro.

Can you please post here how somebody that purchases the Personal version through this special today can then upgrade to the Pro version? It definitely does not sound as simple as "Buy it, then click on 'Help' - 'Upgrade'".

Kelly Hamblin I don't have time to try it out, but the price is so good I just purchased it anyway. Hope I will have time to play with it next week some time. I checked out the information and screenshots on the website and I'm sure I haven't wasted my $.

Constantin Florea @Mark Johnson - I am sorry for the issue regarding the comment editing. We will fix it as soon as possible.

Peter Blaskovic - Escape Motions @Mark Johnson

Dear Mark,

when purchasing from BitsDuJour, the Personal version already includes the right "Upgrade to Pro" link which leads to website with all information needed for the Upgrade. We changed this link right before this promotion, so the version purchased before (like Carmen's) does not, unfortunately include this link (we are solving this issue with Carmen via our support email).

The coupon is valid 24 hours only, which means you need to apply the generated discount coupon within 24 hours. Your Pro license is not time-limited.

Thank you for your interest in Flame Painter and I hope you will enjoy all of its features!

Escape Motions - Dec 7 2013 at 1:30pm Copy Link
Ben Paturzo Sorry for the confusion about my comment about the 39 upgrade for ver 2 Pro -- that assumes you already own ver 1. BitsDuJour deleted my response to Gde Swart, so I'm not sure this comment will be allowed.

Again, be warned that this low price is probably just a way for the devs to raise money for Amberlight. I don't think this business model is fair unless the devs are upfront about it.
Dec 7 2013 at 3:32pm Copy Link
Ralph Bressler I just tried to upgrade to pro and ran into the 24 hour limitation! I was away all day on an emergency and missed the upgrade by about 2 hours! This is the CRAZIEST scheme I have ever seen for upgrading! Other software authors/vendors accept upgrades at just about any time after the purchase. Those people seem to want people to like, use, and pay for the more capable version. I would ask that you provide a way for me to get the $30 upgrade. Thank you.

Peter Blaskovic - Escape Motions @Ralph Bressler

Dear Ralph,

The 24-hour limit is ONLY for the discount coupon. The reason is that users might share this discount coupon with others, who are not eligible for the discount. Therefore we change this discount coupon regularly. As a Flame Painter user, you are ALWAYS eligible for $30 upgrade to Pro discount.

Escape Motions - Dec 8 2013 at 1:18am Copy Link
Gde Swart @Ralph Bressler
E-mail them and explain what happened. Support has been responsive in my experience. They do want customers to buy their software, they just don't want unused coupon codes floating around.
I wonder if you uninstall Flame Painter and then re-install it, if that would reset the 24 hour upgrade clock? It might be worth trying. If it works, I'd love to hear about it and I'm sure others would to.

@Ben Paturzo
I never saw the reply you wrote, but I'm Sorry if I misunderstood your original post.

Mark Johnson If I am understanding what Veronika is saying correctly, a registered user of the Personal version is eligible to upgrade to Pro version for $29.99 at any time, not just during the next day or week or month.

Apparently where the upgrade webpage states, "Discount coupon is valid 24 hours" all that means is that a new coupon is generated every 24 hours to prevent coupon-sharing websites from taking advantage of the discount price.

I recommend that EscapeMotions changes the wording on the discount coupon text. It definitely makes users think they only have 24 hours to upgrade the product. Perhaps instead of saying "Discount coupon is valid 24 hours" it could instead say something like "A new discount coupon code is generated daily; this code is valid for 24 hours only".

H. H. @bdj customer
At this discounted price - and for the personal edition - userfriendly policy (all owned computers) I´d highly recommend buying for people which like creative unconventional paintingk tools. It´s really fun to discover the possibilities and I was glad, that another bdj-user had recommended this nice software, when a similiar software for mac had been offered,alhtough I had paid the non-discounte price.

I´m also registered user of the pro version, but I´m unhappy with the very strict user- policy, since I´m the only user of the product and do not use it commercially I´d at least wish to be allowed to install it at an owned NB too.

2. perhaps it may be interesting for bdj-customer to tell if they will also get a discounte price for the announced ( 10.12.2013) new product "amberlight".

3. Sorry for asking this, but since I already made bad experiences (hvbing bought software license, but - although licenses were unused - not been ablie to activate software,since the company gave up business and shut down their license server): will you gurantee, that the license server will run permanently - or in case (hopefully not)( your company wouldn´t exist any more - make the software usable with a mastercode or free (the developer of "fflow" has done this,so it was a fair hnandling)

4. suggestion: it woul,d be fine, if the feature of your "sandbox" "magic" - e.g.with choosing own colors, making snapshot of the resulting pcitres,.. would be availabe within another product or as a new piece of software

V M Hi,
I just bought the software and tried downloading it but my Norton removed it before I could even see the installation file. Is there anyway I can download it and install it without turning Norton off?

Dec 8 2013 at 12:46pm Copy Link
Ralph Bressler What error did Norton give you? I have Norton and had no problem.
Dec 8 2013 at 1:44pm Copy Link
V M Norton indicated the following:

WS.Reputation.1 is a detection for files that have a low reputation score based on analyzing data from Symantec’s community of users and therefore are likely to be security risks. Detections of this type are based on Symantec’s reputation-based security technology. Because this detection is based on a reputation score, it does not represent a specific class of threat like adware or spyware, but instead applies to all threat categories.

The reputation-based system uses "the wisdom of crowds" (Symantec’s tens of millions of end users) connected to cloud-based intelligence to compute a reputation score for an application, and in the process identify malicious software in an entirely new way beyond traditional signatures and behavior-based detection techniques.

thanks Rookie

Ralph Bressler I thought so. I, of course, cannot speak to any real threat posed by software that Norton tags with this "reputation" error. I can say I have NEVER had a problem with software distributed through BDJ which came up with this "error". As the message says it is not based on any specific threat. If everyone had Norton and heeded this message, no new software could ever be developed. You should have been given a chance to ignore this "threat". It is up to you whether or not you want to do so.
Dec 8 2013 at 2:26pm Copy Link
Bruno Verschraegen @Rookie. Had the same problem (using Norton Internet Security 2014) but at the bottom of the warning screen, there is an option to Restore the file which means Norton then takes the file out of quarantine and then back into the location to where you downloaded it originally. In my case I could also tick a box to prevent NIS to check and remove the file during future security scans.

The WS.Reputation,1 detection is something that does not indicate a virus but low reputation in the sense thatfew Norton users downloaded the file.

I have done the Restore and installed the file. A scan once the programme installed did not reveal anything abnormal.

Peter Blaskovic - Escape Motions @Randy Martin: If you are owner of Personal Edition, you can upgrade to Pro version anytime with a discount 30$ (50% off the full price).
The Discount code on a website is for you and works for 24 hours, but you are eligible to upgrade anytime, you just get new discount code.
