Just a note:

For those into 3D, the Substance "Bundle", including Substance Painter 2, Substance Designer and Bitmap2Material is on sale for a couple more days through Steam. You end up saving 25%, $100 USD. I have seen it at a steeper discount, though. So, if you're waiting for it to be cheaper, check during the Thanksgiving sale or even towards the end of the year. No guarantees, though, and $100 is a nice chunk.

This is a really powerful, premier, PBR materials/textures program with a load of other nice 3D features one would expect. (UV mapping, normal maps, layered material sets, tons of import/export options.)

Note: By registering with Allegorithmic and sending them an email, you'll get the Steam Free exe versions if you want them. (And you would.) The "subscription fee" plans are ONLY for updates and feature patches - It's not a hostage-ware subscription fee, so you don't "have" to have it.

This is way out there. First if you own StarCraft II wings of liberty, right now you can get StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm for free. I got an email about it today and nearly binned it as one of those free gift scam mails I sometimes get, but this is genuine. To claim log onto battlenet and click the gift button next to your username in the top right corner, do it now as it's only available till December 8th.

Remember you need to own the first one to get this. I was never a great fan of the StarCraft II, so I only ever bought the first episode, but I'll take the second episode for free.

I thought. hey I'll give it a look. The first thing it does once I download and start it up is ask for permission to look at my photos, why does it need access to my photos.

Just guessing, but perhaps you can save screenshots, and it stores them in that folder ?

Any other ideas ?
