For a moment, think about your favorite photos that you have in your collection. Now imagine being able to enjoy four or more different versions of each of those photos, all artistically generated by you! That’s what you get when you pick up today’s discount software promotion, PhotoDonut Creative!

With the Creative subscription, you can enjoy hundreds of styles that let you transform photos into art, including drawing, painting, illustration, and photo effects. With PhotoDonut Creative, you’ll have boundless fun playing with the built-in styles, and installing the range of unique and ever-expanding content from the Style Shop. When you’re done with these, you can even create your own custom styles using the node-based Style Editor. Creative also includes features such as Freehand Painting with a real time Cloning function, and the ability to “grab a brush” and transform the images with more control. Find an effect you like? Apply it to multiple photos using Batch Processing, and make “Donuted” videos if desired!

When you install PhotoDonut Creative, you’ll immediately gain unrestricted access all the advanced program features (Style Editor, Freehand Painting and Batch Processing). Best of all, you can use PhotoDonut Creative as a standalone program or as a plug-in, whatever suits your needs the best!

Please note folks: the Creative license does not have free access to the Style Shop (you can still use the free styles, but you have to pay for the premium styles if you want them)

Also, please use the same email address for your purchase and for logging-in / registering in PhotoDonut. If you buy your license before your first login, your password will be your serial number. The serial number can be found in the order confirmation email. If you have already registered in PhotoDonut before purchasing, your license will be simply attached to your existing account (and you will continue to use your original password).

Lifetime Upgrades I just wish to confirm, is this a subscription base or is this truly lifetime upgrades for all versions after purchase?

Also, is this the pro version or some other?

If the premium styles are purchased, is this a subscription for them or are they for a lifetime. (In other words, does the premium styles expire after purchase).

Thank you

Bela Biro There is no subscription here, this is a one-time fee for lifetime upgrades.

The Creative license contains all the advanced features (previously we called them "pro features") of the program: Style Editor, Freehand Painting, and Batch Processing.

The premium styles of the shop are not included (they are only in the Premium and Pro subscriptions).

You can complement your Creative license by individual style pack purchases or you can get a Premium subscription for some time et download everything you want.

When your Premium subscription expires, you can keep all the styles that you downloaded during your subscription, but of course, again, you won't have access to the new premium styles.

Robert Bull Is it possible to test the style packs for yourself - i.e. you can download them and they work, but only with a big watermark? Or something like that?

Bela Biro These are good ideas, but we did not implement them yet.

Playing with the free styles and having a look at the demo images will give you a good idea what to expect from the general mechanics of a style and the visual effects of the given style.

And with the Premium subscription (not included here) you can download everything for free, so it is not really a question.

Frank User It says it can be used as a plugin, but what programs is it compatible with? Obviously Adobe, but what about others? Mainly interested in hearing about Affinity, but also Paintshop Pro. If not, are there any plans to increase support?

Under Features tab:

Use the program as a standalone or as Photoshop/Lightroom plug-in

Frank User @Chris

Thanks, I saw that, but the next line lists the more generic "Use the program as a standalone or plug-in" with no mention of Photoshop/Lightroom. Also, I ask because searching online I found this was formerly a program called PostworkShop. And the website for that program lists both Corel Painter and Paintshop as compatible with the plugin. I was wondering if in transitioning to PhotoDonut it lost support for those and other programs, or if they only listed the most popular option that the majority of people would use and care about. And if it supports those it might support Affinity, which I prefer but could not find any information on.

Bela Biro We don't test every plugin host regularly, except Photoshop, of course. If they did not change the way they communicate with plugins it may still work.

Because it's new, I tested the Affinity case, using this article to set up the Photoshop plugins in Affinity: http://blog.thomasfitzger...nity-photo.

The PhotoDonut plugin shows up, but on my machine, it could not locate the main PhotoDonut application. Maybe a permissions issue ... It needs more investigation.

If it is a decisive factor for you, you can try out different hosts with the free version of PhotoDonut. But do not forget to install the plugin first. If you did not use the window at the first start of PhotoDonut you can still do it later from Settings / Plugin Installer.

Lisa Griffiths I just purchased and installed the program as standalone but every time I try to open an image file it tells me the file can not be loaded and to choose another file. Please advise.

Bela Biro Hi Lisa, what kind of files do you try to load? Maybe the file format is not supported. Did you try any generic JPEGs from the net?

Please contact us at with more details.
