What are people saying about Cutout Standard

Terry McMorrow According to the fine print if we upgrade our computer to a new one we no longer own a copy of this software. Is this the intention of the company?

Here is the fine print
Transfer of a license to another owned computer is not allowed.

projects-software Dear mr. McMorrow.
no, thats not our Intention. In case that you are not able to re-install the software on your new computer we will find a solution for you.

CFGuy What about the "Professional" edition of this program- any discounts offered on this version?

projects-software This offer is accoriding to the standard Version. But you can purchase a discounted upgrade once you have a standard Version

Jon User Does this standard edition include the Photoshop Elements and Lightroom plugins or is an upgrade to pro required for that?

Gr3gw Hi,

This is a program I have been considering recently and so to see it offered on BDJ is very welcome. A few questions:

1. I notice that this is version 5 and the company is now promoting versions 6. The price reflects the fact that the product on offer is an older version but can you summarise what features of 6 are not in version 5. I have scanned the website and it is very hard to do a realistic comparison.

2. In versions 5 and 6, there are two products: Standard and Pro. Again I find it hard to simply describe the differences between Standard and Pro. Can you summarise, please?

3. This is not an easy program to use. I have the trial version and I'm struggling. It's going to be hard to evaluate the product (Standard version 5) in such a short time unless I can find a simple tutorial to help me find out how to use it.

This is a program I want, my issue is that it is going to take time to work out if it will do what I want and also whether or not I should be aiming to get the Pro version or even version 6. Will version 5 have an advantageous upgrade path to version 6?

projects-software Hi Gr3gw,
we didnt promoted cutout 6 yet because its brand-new. but we will definately provide a discounted upgrade-price for costumers who own already the previous verison.

Craig User I don't know about this company. I have purchased products from them and have emailed twice in the past month with no reply whatsoever.

I also noticed on the buy page for Cutouts 6 that Standard and Pro both take you to buy standard--both buy links go to the same URL. Looks like an oops!
Nov 16 2016 at 11:23am Copy Link
Gr3gw Hi Craig, Thanks for confirming to me that there is a certain amount of confusing information on Franzis's Projects-Software website. I think I read it correctly, but it may be another website error, the purchase price of Cut-Outs 6 Pro is the same as the upgrade price. ??

It could be that Cut-Out 5 Standard is all I need. I'm still trying to figure it out. Hope the offer gets extended for 24 hours.

Gr3gw Nico, I won't be buying this time. I haven't been able to test CutOut 5 for my first project. I'll have to wait for an offer at another time. I do have some other Franzis products and so I might get lucky through the newsletter.

Thanks for getting the offer extended another 24 hours.

Constantin Florea @Asim User, The receipt email from BitsDuJour does not contain the registration information, it only contains the installer. You would have to install the application and during the installation process you can retrieve your registration information. If you tried that already and didn't receive it, then the vendor's suggestion in cases like this is that you try another email address to get the registration information from the vendor's servers.

Claudius Bluesgoose Dear mr Forea.
This is becoming very annoying, Program zip-files promoted through you, tends to be deemed unsafe, hence downloading is interrupted frequently.
I have had this conversation with you a while back, but it seems you have not actually addressed the problem. I know I am not the only one and I wonder why this is still ongoing.
I run Windows 10, always the last update and with only Windows Defender, so I see no problems on my part.
Make sure providers certificates are updated or whatever it is that Windows react upon, or choose an other file format than zip-files. -exe -files seems not to have this affect on Windows
Make sure to store programs on your own servers instead, where you can have full control.
Please provide me with safe link to download this program and licence.
Kind regards

Jan 5 2022 at 3:26am Copy Link
George Avery I downloaded and installed without any problem. What isn't clear as far as I can see during the process is that you have to start installing before you have any user/key. There's a button on the first installer screen something like "Click Here" which isn't very intuitive.

As for the software, I'll give it a fair try out. I've watched the tutorial a couple of times but I find the interface clunky and I think I'll be uninstalling in a day or two.
Jan 5 2022 at 4:33am Copy Link
Sid B Scrolling back in these comments, in 2016 people had trouble installing and registering, in 2018 people had trouble installing and registering, and now, in 2021 people have trouble installing and registering.

That means in 5 years, the company has done nothing to address these issues.

But, more than that, the website shows the current version is 10! That puts this four generations behind.

Finally, one of the "benefits" of the Pro version is now that large files load faster. Seriously, a "pro" feature is file load time?
Jan 5 2022 at 6:43am Copy Link
Constantin Florea @Claudius Bluesgoose, For quite some time now (many years), our storage servers have been using http:// and not https://. This may show on some systems, the messages you are referring to in your comment. My team is aware about this issue but so far we haven't migrated to https://. All our installers are safe to use in the sense that they are free from any adware/spyware/toolbars and this "safe to use" property, is not affected by the use of http:// (instead of https://).

Fantyparts Nope, that doesn't work. However, I did eventually manage to download the install file by using Firefox instead of Chrome. And whilst it then installed without too much grief, I haven't yet had much of a chance to explore the software's capabilities or performance. Stay tuned for potential harsh language later.

Claudius Bluesgoose Dear mr Florea, Thx f your answer. I don't think BdJ is spreading any malware, but Windows Defender will not accept zip-files from http-sites. As you obviously is aware of this I find it most disrespectful that you still have not taken care of this yet. I don't care if you use http or https, but I find it your responsibility to provide a working link to flawless downloading, Not forcing us to search around for this, cursing BdJ for interrupted file transfers.
Jan 5 2022 at 11:12am Copy Link
Doris User I don't think I would blame BJD for what's happening here. I've noticed over the years that any product offered by Franzis *always* has serious issues ... a long and unnecessarily complicated download/installation process, not enough clear information on how to make things happen, and lots of unhappy people. BJD ends up receiving the brunt of the subsequent issues ...

Personally, I think I'm going to avoid anything "Franzis" from here on out, no matter how good the product looks.

BTW ... I use the Vivaldi browser - exclusively, and had no problem downloading and actually installing the software after jumping through all of their hoops. That said ... the program shuts down before I can even try to get the registration in. It's obviously not a BJD issue ...

Computer Person Brian W - It is 1.3 GB as it includes both Windows and Mac versions plus over 650MB of background images for each OS, plus pdf help file for each OS.

My problem is registering as it does not include registration information for the BitsDuJour purchase, only a link for a generic registration.

So, WHERE IS THE REGISTRATION INFORMATION - it is not in the confirming email?
Dec 13 2022 at 12:45pm Copy Link
SKY There are both WIN and MAC folders in that zip file but I think while WIN is a setup file, MAC has a Demo file in it as dwg. And the bulk is that in both these folders there are 100 background photos, each, but they are the same photos, so 100x2 @ 623MB, one of which is a waste obviously. No tricky stuff, just packaged for idiots, that's all.

At the bottom of the BitsDuJour confirming email, click the link for the alternative method. It is the only method, actually.

Then they send confirmation of registration and conform again for another email with the activation code.

The only thing worse than the instructions is the program itself. It sucks.

I don't know why they would not fix the BitsDuJour instructions other than they cannot write English or properly translate from their native German.

Yup, why extend the offer if you can't use it because the instructions are so poor. Or maybe that's why?

Dec 14 2022 at 9:02pm Copy Link
Daniel User Here's one option to create a desktop icon for CutOut8 in Windows 10 or 11:

Use your file manager (like File Explorer) to meander over to the following file: C:\Program Files\Franzis\CutOut 8\CutOut.exe.
Right click the file name "CutOut.exe" and choose "Create a shortcut." Drag that shortcut (its file name will be CutOut.lnk) to your desktop and you've got an icon upon which to click that will launch the program.

To add CutOut to your Start Menu or Taskbar, right click the icon you just created on your desktop and select "Pin to Start Menu" or "Pin to Taskbar" respectively. If those choices aren't available, select "Show More Options" to find them.
