Apparent Software has put together an enticing bundle of 7 high-quality graphics programs for the price of one. MacGraPhoto is a two-week special offer made possible by the participation of 7 great Mac developers.
Special deals like this aren’t normally posted here on MacYourself, but knowing how many Mac users are creative types, it seems like a good match. Not to mention these are actually really good programs, unlike some other bundles floating around out there. Whether you’re a graphic designer or just someone who likes to dabble in fun projects, the MacGraPhoto bundle is worth checking out.
Normally priced at over $250 when purchased separately, the 7 applications included in MacGraPhoto are being offered for just $39.99, or about 84% off. Don’t be put off by the low price tag – you’d be surprised how powerful and elegant these programs are. Most of them have been recognized as Apple Staff Picks or given honors such as the Apple Design Award. I wouldn’t call this professional-level software, but casual users might want to quit wasting time with Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator. You’re likely to find these tools are much more user-friendly and get the job done with far less effort.
Here is the list of applications included in the $39.99 MacGraPhoto bundle. Remember this is only a two-week offer which started yesterday (November 16, 2009). Learn more or buy your copy now!
