That's why I am hoping you will forgive me because, in a way, I come bearing gifts. I am so excited. Corel is running a great promotion now on its photo editing software - see here: http://store1.corel.com/corel/?storeKey=us&trkid=NASEMGglBR You can save 30% on Paint Shop Pro X3 - the latest version. Instead of paying $99.99 for it, you pay $69.99 for a full version, or like me, $59.99 for an upgrade. But, wait, like the Ronco commercials say, there's more - you get a $40.00 Photo Restoration and Retouching book for free, and, if you wish, with any purchase, you can add Corel Paint It! to your order for only $10.00 (normally $39.99). that's what I did yesterday. But, they also gave me free shipping (saving me another $9.99 - if you don't get it automatically, sign up for their emails - you may need that link). The piece de resistance I am giving you, however, is the code I used to get $20.00 off my order BONUSBUCKS20.
So, instead of paying almost $200 full price when you add in shipping, I am paying $49.99 total for all of the above. Hurry, though, the sale, I believe, only runs through August 15.
