Upgraded my Little Snitch license ($12) that had fallen out of use. Installation was simpler than I remembered (Intel then, M1 now.) Seems to run with a lighter touch than I remember. Did have to check a box to allow a system extension to be installed.
(A day later, I restarted into recoveryOS to check the Startup Disk security policy setting, and it was still set at Full Security. )
I bought Clean My Mac X, mostly so I can get Adobe off of my machine. I’ve never seen such sticky software as Adobe Creative Cloud, so when Clean My Mac showed up in my inbox this morning with a 30% off deal, I was all in.
I also bought a new monitor. Not software, but I’m excited about having more screen real estate to play with!
Per an answer to another question I had the other day, I looked closely at Stop The Madness and then bought it for all my devices. Based on the website, it may fix up a problem that has driven me nuts for a long time - not being able to copy text / autofill into a password confirmation field.
I was tempted by several, but stuck to the one I decided several months ago I would wait on Black Friday for — completing my Topaz Image Quality bundle. Got a nice 20% or so discount. Just the ticket for old scanned negatives and slides.
I have both the Topaz suite and DXO PhotoLab5, even though I do most of my editing in Lightroom and Photoshop. I’ve found that I rarely use the Topaz tools, but use DXO as my raw converter for every single photo I take. It is substantially better than either Lightroom / Camera Raw or Topaz for that purpose. It eliminates noise much better than Topaz, IMO. If I’d bought DXO first, I wouldn’t have bothered with Topaz.
I don’t know what you plan to use either Topaz or DXO for, but if it’s raw conversion & noise reduction, DXO is excellent. You don’t have to buy the whole DXO package for that: you can buy DXO PureRaw as a plug in for Lightroom or Photoshop.
Their Cyber Monday sale is still going. Just sayin’
How were you able to modify your subscription. I have trying in vain. When I do it on the web it launches the craft app or prompts for license. Either I’m dumb or something is gravely wrong in what I’m doing.
@sangadi – I took a bit of experimenting to figure out how to change my plan.
What worked for me was to the Craft Pricing Plans and click the Buy Now for Business. I was prompted to upgrade my account and went ahead with my payment.
I had previously subscribed to Craft through Apple. I cancelled this subscription, which was set to automatically renew on December 25, 2022. Once the upgrade was complete, I received an email from Craft with instructions for receiving a refund on the unused portion of the previous subscription.
