    I'm really not sure what all the issues are with the install, Unless I'm far better at computers than I thought I was. Perhaps its just a problem with reading comprehension. Didn't have to fill in all the information for a key (paid attention to required fields instead of just going ballistic). Was able to copy and paste the registration number with no issues at all. Fun little program that's easy to use. Has some great affects that really make pictures pop.

    If anyone doesn't want to give away their private info, just fill out the form with made-up information. Fake name, fake address, fake email, etc.
    Once you submit the info, you'll get a confirmation page with the serial number.

    Registration was easy. I went to URL given in my email address, filled out a form for free purchase of this software, gave real name but everything else fake. Reg key was emailed immediately. Installed the software then applied the reg key and that's it. This is a fun program to play around with if you like artsy pics that use wild colors and fancy designs. I think I need to play around with the settings more to see if this is a keeper or not. So far, I like the results. Some look pretty stunning.

    The installation does NOT allow you to select a drive other than C. For some a deal-breaker given limited space on that drive, which I fall into. Unfortunatelly I won't be able to evaluate as a result.

    Followed all directions and when I input the license it says that the license key is incomplete, that it requires a 16 digit number and what I was given is only 8, I believe. I'm running into problems with many of the GOTD offers, something that never used to happen. Yes, I realize that I am getting something for free and for that reason it is pointless to complain, but if the offers aren't going to work, there's really no point in continuing to say that you are giving away full, licensed programs. This was one I was REALLY looking forward to trying. Guess I'll just uninstall it and hope it's offered again some time in the future.

    I understand the registration process is intrusive and complicated for this giveaway.
    Instead, D/L GIMP and G'MIC - there are filters in the g'mic plugin that greatly resemble this Spektrel Art pgm, and they're both free. There's also a multitude of other photo enhancements and effects you can do with these two bits of kit. Everyone should have them both!
    Good luck...

    If you have the previous giveaway installed, V1.1.8, it appears that just installing this over the old one works fine, with further info needed. There is no option to register, indicating that installing this version over the old, just uses the old registration key. Very simple, no hoops to jump through.

    One complaint though is that the installer DOES NOT LET YOU CHOOSE INSTALL LOCATION. That's inexcusable these days! Like a lot of people, I run an SSD drive for the OS and boot drive, and I don't want it full of installed programs, yet with this, your main drive (C:\) is the only option.

    OK I tried it again and found if I filled out every box, even making my phone number 1-xxx-xxx-xxxx, put anything in the 'company' box, and selected that I found this on a forum, it took me further providing me with a registration SN.

    A previous version of this app and about all of Spektrel's releases for other software are available for Android systems (phones, netbooks, notebooks, Cromebooks) for $1.99 from Google Play store. If you can't get it to work via GOTD you can at least try it and their other releases for minimal cost. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.jixipix.spektrelart&hl=en_US&gl=US

    JixiPix has given away a few cute apps, though like today's Spektrel Art, I've only used them playfully, rather than for serious work. The few JixiPix apps I've gotten also tend to install a bit unusually -- not bad but just unusual. Spektrel Art is a slight version upgrade from the previous giveaway I had installed, v. 1.1.9.0 from v. 1.1.8.0. I copied the program's folder, plus the Users\ [UserName]\ AppData\ Roaming\ Spektrel Art\ folder, where the FX presets are stored, from a VM where I'd installed the app. That avoided the following folders being automatically created: C:\Program Files\ Common Files\ Adobe\ Plug-Ins\ CC\ JixiPix \ -- C:\Program Files\ uninst -- C:\Users\ [UserName]\ AppData\ Roaming\ Adobe\ Lightroom\ . The setup app has a drop down where you can have the plugins added to the program's folder, but that doesn't stop the other folders from being created. The only new registry entries I recorded were for Uninstalling the app. Activating Spektrel Art involves a few steps. I requested the link to the GOTD via email. Clicking the link in that email of course opens the page with the download link -- *before* I closed the browser [Edge] I went to the link in the GOTD download's readme.txt file, since going to that URL in another browser instance just took me to the regular GOTD page for today's offer. Note: if you need a 2nd key you'll have to use a VPN as your IP address is recorded. That gets you another email with a link including a coupon code to fill out the order form for the Spektrel Art app -- you don't need to set up an account, but it does request data like address, phone number, & email address. Immediately after filling in the info I got 2 more emails, including one with the license key. Note: getting on the email list the last time JixiPix was on GOTD over time got me a few more giveaways directly from JixiPix. Activation info is stored in the user folders, but is specific to that copy of Windows -- you can use the same key however to install Spektrel Art in more than one copy of Windows.

    I installed this on a Mac (Intel). No problems. followed the readme.txt instructions. Received email, entered order ID and serial number. Had this on my win10 from a previous offer.

    It is a useful photo enhancing tool. Your imagination is what limits what you can do with this software! Thank you for the offer.

    Os efeitos são ESPETACULARES! Também adiciona a parte 2 plugins 8bf a serem usados em qualquer outro programa que os aceite. Um must have para quem gosta de efeitos digitais. O registro é um tanto confuso mas nada que não se resolva. Informações dados ao parceiro de distribuição implica em telefone e endereço. Todavia é o email que certamente pode ser a fonte de intrusões. Thanks GiveAwayOfTheDay.com

    Registration is a multi-step process (making it a bit hard), and name/address/phone info is requested (making it a bit intrusive); but the ease of creating surreal/other-worldly image special effects on your pictures/photos is very easy and fun via a nice interface.

    (forgot to add, as usual...)

    You can read last year's comments here:
    https://www.giveawayoftheday.com/spektrel-art/

    As is normal on these pages, on that page there's a lot of comments/complaints about the registration process (mostly from a failure to read and fully follow the tedious multi-step directions and/or the "intrusive" personal info requested, same as today's offer); some on the install process (forced folder location on drive); and for those that made it to a successful install, a few about the program itself (mostly praises about the cool effects).

    HMarx, you nailed it.
    Most users are too dumb to read.
    But to stay fair, the registration process is unnecessarily complicated. I call giveaways given away in that way "contra productive", they do more harm than they are a good advertisment. for anyone. Shame on Giveaway Of The Day!

    I got Spektrel Art 1.1.8 when it was given away few months back. This version 1.1.9 doesn't seem any different. It just overwrote the previous version but kept all of my saved presets. There are lots of presets to choose from but i much prefer the ones i pre-made as I can put a thumbnail on them to show what the effects are. It can handle large images without a problem, but output is in PNG Tiff and PNG only.
    Thers always room for improvement and I would like to see much more than just presets. This one has not got even basic editing controls. For me $19.99 is far too expensive. For a few dollars more i have got high end photo editors (upgrades mostly). Its great to have instant and adjustable presets, whether ones I made or installed ones, but not at above price. The licence covers business as well as private use. Maybe Jixipix should consider private use licence for at least half the price for the casual user like myself.

    As a freebie, Thank you Jixipix and GOTD

    DenisX,

    Using a PNG for input I was able to choose to save in JPG just fine.

    I'm not sure why it would behave differently with file size, but I have no large TIFF or PNG images for testing.

    I am downloading so as to update the Spektrel that I purchased some years ago. Were I to do it over again I would have been better off purchasing a bundle. I like their software, it does what it does and is not a swiss army knife doing all things.

    Taste this give away and you may well like the flavor and give other JIXIPIX software a try. Yes, you can try before you buy other programs they offer.

    Why does this company need all my personal data, phone number and complete address. I tried filling out the form without putting that data in, and it would not accept my application. In this day and age of information getting hacked and stolen, I find it inexcusable that a company asks for more information that it needs or should have. I find it too risky and not worth it, just to try out their product. That said, I would never ever make a purchase from this company.

    This looked nice, but the registration is way out of line and totally unacceptable.

    You do NOT need my phone number and address, etc.

    Now I know to never buy anything from JixPix since they demand too much information which I am reluctant to post online.

    Thanks for revealing this to me now before I ever considered actually buying anything from you.

    I'd wish you good luck with the promo, but am too offended so I'll just leave it here.

    Remember software rebates, Instead of a price reduction you had to send in a coupon to get a rebate mailed to you requiring you to give your address to them. Just another version of that.
