Like before, I have myself signed up with my email to receive the software but I did not receive any email with the download links and serial number of the software??

How can I download "Giveaway of the day - ANALOG projects 3" and get a serial number? ?

W00T!! Even though this offer has expired, I was ***finally*** able to register and received my codes!! (thanks to Ootje and Garry Hinchman - used variations of the links in their posts).

I installed it on Win 7 64bit Ultimate. I started playing with it - it is awesome, as are the other applications Franzis offers!!! Not sure where the German or the poor language came in, but I finally used google chrome and it has a translation option which works well. My account is now set up - sooooooo Franzis/software-projects.com I'm waiting for other offers now!! And a big thanks to GOTD for making this happen.

Thank you Kyle for sharing your experience, even though the offer had expired. I followed the information you posted and was also able to get the program downloaded, installed, and successfully registered. (Had no luck yesterday.) Had you not posted, I wouldn't have even tried, so your post made a big difference to at least this person.

The programme is SO big (427Mb) and my download speed today so s l o w (currently I am on the end of a line in the countryside) that even though back home it would have downloaded in perhaps no more than 10-15 minutes, here it keeps fluctuating between 25-50 minutes -- and the giveaway EXPIRES in 41 minutes!

I am wondering if the download will cut off before it is even finished, or, if it downloads and I try to install it, I won't be able to get the programme registered in time....

S Norwood, I was the same -- even TWO days later! The fact that it took more than 40 mins to download the progrmme was not the problem: What still IS the problem is that, contrary to expectations, I STILL have received no email from Franzis. Either in my InBox or in my Junk mail box. So right now all that effort was for nothing!

Activation went smoothly, as with all the Franzis titles I have ( five now with this one!), I am positive Analog projects 3 will be a keeper! Behind the relatively simple interfaces usually sits a powerful set of specialized tools, filters and templates. Although I do have one warning be prepared to end up with several variations of an image as the possibilities are countless and each one is stunning in their own right!

Yes if one is already registered at the German site then this program will arrive pretty fast. Just plug in both fields, saving the 2nd long string code to use as SERIAL when the program is completely installed. So far all their photo programs have worked well.
Can get to be bit difficult to tell them apart as they shift the naming at times. The branding of ANALOG projects xxxx is relatively recent after years of using Franzis in
the titles. The About tab will show the registration done.
Nice look though. ANALOG projects 3 - V3.21.02375 Windows 10 x64 Pro.

Using a ...@gmx.de address from Germany (a good and free provider) I got my registration in a few minutes. Installation without any problems.
I got a great program giving back the old analog feeling with ease. Very good for one like me with less experience (my main picture adjusting program is picasa).

Thanks to Francis and GOTD.

BTW. This good offer of today does not need troll comments.

After a rather annoying installation/activation process, it's finally installed and runs. The first thing I want to do is load a photo and start playing with it... but regardless of where I look, looking for files of type all pictures, either blank name field or *.*, it doesn't find any files in any directory I look, or subdirectories thereof.

A bit of a time-waster.

Several comments:

A rather difficult registration process, but it works OK. Just follow the instructions carefully. Unfortunately, you will get an email in German. I don't know if subsequent emails will be in German. Did not see any place to choose language.

I can see this being of value to hobbyists or perhaps professional photographers with the time and inclination to play with it. I don't have that kind of interest or time. The effects are interesting, but not of value to me, but they might be to you. I suggest you download it and try it to see if it is something you will use.

I won't use it, so I am uninstalling.

Registration Problem
Followed Internet link, Logged in, Received User ID and 'Registration Code. Entered both BEFORE install as it asked. Installed without error.
When starting program it is asking for 'Serial Number'.

Is 'Serial Number' the same as 'Your Registration Code' ?
Assuming it is, I entered it again. Now it says 30 day Days Remaining.
And.. it gives error - 'Internet Connection Error'. My internet, browser, mail all are working fine. SO there is NO 'Internet' problem at MY end.

The program gets stuck. Can not even cancel it or close it. Had to close it in Task Manager.
Tried again, and again to enter the 'serial number' - 'Your Registration Code' .
Same problem.

Buggy program. Will not Register. Will not Quit.
Not worth it after all the hassles and hoops you have to jump through.

Well that was a right waste of time. After all the steps of registration, installation and getting the emails the registration code I was sent just locked up everything. It did nothing when I clicked Activate and the only way I could get rid of the dialog was using Task manager.
I uninstalled everything and it then sent me a newsletter all in German.

When I opened the program I got a pop up to enter the registration number a second time. I'm pretty sure it said it was good for 30 days. The install page also had a link to a manual. Can't get it to open. I messed around with some preset filters and I like it but I can't seem to open an individual picture. It wants to open a whole folder of pictures.

If it helps at all...

Franzis software is good to very good, but I've never seen it ranked number one in comparison to competing products, though their on sale prices, e.g. the offer for Sharpen Projects Photographer, often make up for that. If you are interested in buying their software, Google 1st to check out Franzis' different sites, including what seems their main site in German -- prices [& availability] can vary across those sites, & very good upgrade pricing is sometimes available too. Ashampoo sometimes has Franzis software on sale as well.

Installing Franzis software is straightforward, except for the P/Shop compatible plug-ins... I've seen them include several copies of identical plug-ins listed for different apps &/or versions. I've had some of the included plug-ins work, & others not, so there can be a bit of trial & error. I've had Franzis plug-ins work when copied into the appropriate folder for whatever software, but I've also had some of their plug-ins only work when I used a shortcut to the filter in whatever plug-in folder -- I now always copy the plug-ins into the Franzis app's folder, & try the shortcuts 1st.

I use Win7 & Win10 on this PC, plus use VMs... I've had Franzis installation apps unpack the real setup app in the User Temp folder, & using that has saved a little bit of time & trouble when installing more than once, & it saves space when I archive the setup file in case I want/need to re-install someday. I've also found many of their apps are semi-portable, in the sense that I can copy the program's folder from one copy of Windows to the next, & then also activate it there.

ANALOG projects 3 is a bit of a niche program, in that you probably will only use it on certain projects &/or photos, rather than on every image. While being able to open RAW files is nice I suppose, I'm unsure why you'd use it -- perhaps the capability is needed for its Lightroom plug-in & listed in the features for marketing. If you shoot RAW, which is basically all the sensor data not yet interpreted into a picture, the workflow is generally to use something like Lightroom, DxO Optics Pro, Corel AfterShot etc. 1st, where you'd *develop* [process & adjust] a batch of images. That step is usually non-destructive [it's not permanent], and produces the jpg files you'd use in image editing software for tweaks, compositions etc. Regardless how good ANALOG projects 3 is, it just doesn't have the same necessary tools for processing RAW photos on its own.

mike, I'd rate Black and White projects as the best B+W converter I've used, and I've played with a lot. Also Sharpen projects is IMHO the most accessible Deconvolution Sharpener out there, although it almost always needs a bit dialling back on how much "pop" it adds.

Hi, the main 'disadvantage' of any of Franzis Software is NOT quality of their Products, but indeed pain with obtaining Registration Codes via e-mails on Giveaway days.. Not for the first time, not due to fact that Users might already have Accounts with them and after logging into them - still nothing arrives for ages, or not at all (not to mention that for none-German Customers these e-mails arrive in German, no matter if one states in little form online time after time that you live in Anglo-speaking Country. That form doesn't 'remember' it and keeps reverting address back to Germany..)

That said - today I personally had no problem at all getting Codes into my hotmail post, and noticed much more instructions in readme File than before. Hurray:)

Provided one is not fed-up with lengthy Procedures described above and felt by many - another good opportunity is to check 'News' (blue 'field' on the left) in main Console of today's 'Analog Projects 3' - and obtain Free copy of 'Photo BUZZER' too.
Here - getting Reg Codes is exactly the same as earlier on, with difference that they arrive promptly after confirming agreement of allowing 'junk letters' (later to be ignored, or unsubscribed from) Good Luck then!!:) and thanks for Today's Offer. Hope to have fun using it!

As with prior older-generation/version/edition title offers from Franzis here on GOTD, I can not find a view option to enable normal-sized fonts to permit readable text menus on a 4K display.

I would hope that their latest "Pro" products can accommodate 4K displays; however, this uncertainty (and lack of reassurance/comments from Franzis on these GOTD pages when mentioned before) is what has kept me from buying some of their GOTD-discounted offers such as the "Sharpen Projects" listed above.

Reply   |   Comment by HMarx  –  Last year  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+1)

HMarx,

(Followup)

I looked through most of the user manuals available online:

https://www.projects-software.com/user-manuals

...and it seems that the option to accommodate high-resolution 4K/UHD displays was added and is available mostly-only in their edition "5" products (except apparently still not in Cutout 5 or Cutout 6).

That explains why these earlier edition ones typically offered as free introductions on GOTD and elsewhere have poorly-scaled menus and other window items displayed with teeny-tiny/itty-bitty/microscopic text.

Reply   |   Comment by HMarx  –  Last year  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (-1)

HMarx,

(yet another followup)

(I am running Windows 10 Home.)

OK, I had a bit of inspiration to play with the "Properties" of the Desktop shortcut (or the EXE file itself, if you wish -- changing a property via the Desktop shortcut apparently/actually changes the property of the EXE file itself in the Program Files installation folders).

Anyway, if ANALOG Projects 3 is displaying as ridiculously tiny on your screen, try this:

Right-click on its shortcut (or EXE file itself) and select "Properties";

Click on the "Compatibility" tab;

Check the box for "Override high DPI scaling behavior";

Immediately below that is a pull-down menu "Scaling performed by:" -- choose "System (Enhanced)" (if that does not work, then try "System" -- both seem to have the same result on my system);

Click on "OK" and try running it again. Hopefully it will appear much better.

I did the same to my previous installations of Franzis titles and it "fixed" them all, making them usable at last.

I don't know why there is no mention of doing this for their older titles in any of the available user manuals, or under any FAQ on their website. From comments made during previous GOTD offers from Franzis it sure seems like a top FAQ candidate!

You can read more about "legacy" application software display compatibility here:

john la,

There's an unbelievable amount of spam that's continuously dealt with by mail servers, & it's difficult for their software to tell friend from foe with 100% accuracy. Some legitimate emails will get blocked -- some mail servers will block email from legitimate sources. If I don't get a response email in a reasonable amount of time from something like today's GOTD, I'll try with another email address using another service [& servers] -- on a few rare occasions I've had to try 3 or 4 before the email got through.

Unusual way of registering software - once you try setup, a splash screen asks for registration details.

Click on the small 'Internet' button and enter email address. wait for them to send you log in details (and that does mean wait!).

Scroll down the webpage and log in. This generates another email with user ID and regn key which you need to paste on to your setup splash screen. Been told the software is worth all this effort though!

Doesn't end there - found I also had to click on the 'Install ANALOG projects 3' button as well for setup to commence...

Couldn't edit my comment....but Franzis has some great software and I would really like to get this. Haven't had problems with other Franzis offers. Not sure why can't move further along the process...using win7 64bit. Would highly recommend this software if it is anything like the other software they have offered. The registration process is a bit daunting but well worth it....hope I get this :)

Veres Ioan,
Franzis products are realy good. So it is worth to give them your real email address. BTW, I'm not getting spam from them.

nibo1978:
I have used Franzis products for many years now, having been introduced to them via "Giveaway of the day". I have found them to be typically German in their polite, efficient, helpful & swift replies when asked for help. I have found them to be very, very far from your description of them. Their software is of the highest quality and I cannot recommend it more!

Thank you, nibo1978, for the opportunity to promote this excellent company and their brilliant products.

Veres Ioan,
I'm very sorry, too. My email is a free one from gmx.net (a very good German provider with high security) and it is working fine with Franzis.

nibo1978,

Even you're crying your spam problem here several times, it will not become true. On the address which I gave to Francis ist no spam. You should search your problem origin somewhere else.

Ritchi Freudenkinder, use google and search "franzis spam" and you will find different sites who talk about spam from franzis and you will find sites who tells about that franzis is selling user data to other spammer and scammer!

Ah, at long last I have got the program installed! I have a wonderful German daughter-in-law and have learned from her how German thinking differs somewhat from the English manner and I have to make a few allowances!

I know this software WILL BE BRILLIANT - thank you "Giveaway of the day" and Franzis!

I know I shall thoroughly enjoy using this piece of software. I have many pieces of software from Franzis and use each of them dozens of times a day. I would buy them all if I ever had enough money (not very likely though!) It was Giveaway of the Day who introduced me to them and I always end up paying for the product - love them!

However, installing it this time seems a bit of a challenge as I am not receiving their promised email (and, yes, I am well aware of the normal response of checking "Junk", Spam", etc.). We'll see!

I've owned a few of their projects processes over the past few few years, and I have to say that they do a good job of providing us with tools that only have simple processes, in order to start using them. There are move complex editing techniques available in the programs, but with the basic programs and presets, it's fairly easy to get a decent result.
Each Projects program covers a specific area of photo editing, such as Analog, which works on film photos and scans, and B&W projects, which creates good B&W images from color photos.

Also, I've found their Customer Support to be very responsive.

Like other times before, have myself signed up with my email to receive the software but I did not receive a email with the download links and serial number of the software??
Think something is going wrong somewhere.
How can I download "Giveaway of the day - ANALOG projects 3"

Previous version has been offered here in February 2016:
https://www.giveawayoftheday.com/analog-projects-premium-2/

Here you can compare with new one:
https://www.projects-software.com/compare/6/37,36/analog-projects-vs-analog-projects-3

There are many new features, presets etc. as evidenced by the size of the download (427 MB against 110!). Apparently there is only one version of ANALOG projects 3, no standard, premium, deluxe, pro, whatever...

All Franzis manuals can be found here:
https://www.projects-software.com/user-manuals

There is also a short video on this page:
https://www.projects-software.com/analog

The registering, installing etc. process as described in 6 steps in the Readme can be discouraging but is not that complicated (except the parts in German!) once you have an account with FRANZIS, and it is worth creating one because they make damn good products and offer them here quite often. The new version installs BESIDE the previous one.

Although it can seem of limited use (actually what it ADDS to your digital photos is what people usually try to REMOVE from their digitalized analog photos), today's giveaway belongs to this category of software fun to have if you enjoy creating different versions (B&W, with various effects etc) of some of your favorite photos, and the results are very interesting.

If you already have a FRANZIS soft, you know how this one works as they all have the same interface: one of those you will immediately understand without any learning curve if you are happy with the numerous presets as they are, or tweaked playing at random with sliders and buttons, but which has everything to satisfy more skilled users who know what they are doing when they select Agfa RSX-II 200 rather than Kodak T-Max 400 or Fuji superia 1600 (I don't).

There is a tool to combine two default presets into a custom one which will be saved in a newly created "custom" category, and could itself in theory be subsequently combined with a third one (but I didn't try that). Note that the combination A+B might differ slightly from B+A.

I originally thought that was clumsy translations from the original German, but no, Franzis uses some kind of proprietary terminology, whatever the interface language. So note that, in more mainstream terms, "clarity" = contrast, "tonal value" = brightness", and "dynamic" = saturation. Other than that, the translations are obviously made by professionals, which is always a good sign.

And after you click "save final image", don't enter the name of your photo in the box "title" unless you want to find that name written on it! It must be some kind of rite of initiation for the new comers to Franzis programs. Good one, Franzis!
