Is there any catch to this - is the software time limited?

No catch!!!

I have just got my licence code emailed to me, although I am not home at the moment so I have not had a chance to install and try it out.

The smallprint does say you have to register and download the software by Sunday 14th August 2012 after which the offer is terminated (Plenty of time then Wink).
A phase one profile is also required to download the software from their website. I have one so just have to remember my password Grin

is it worth getting if one already has photoshop ?
Can it do anything that I can't do in that ?
and finally....do they do it for Macs too ?

cheers
Nik

Nik,
It is for Raw conversion, and Capture One is a very good one for that.
Yes, they are available for Mac too.
Paying a few pounds for the magazine and get the software free is a no brainer. I have never seen it before (long while ago, you could get it free when buying Sandisk memory card, but not anymore).

Thanks Cole. I am aware that it's a RAW conversion
piece of software, just wondering if it has any extra
stuff compared to PS's RAW thing.
But, as you say, with it being free it'll do no harm to
give it a look.
cheers.

Which PS are you using, Nik?
Capture One is said to give better result (ask Keithh..Smile).

I am using CS 5.
There is quite a lot of stuff you can do in ACR.

I have never used CS for raw conversion. I prefer to either use Capture One or Lightroom.

How can you tell ?

I have downloaded the trial of several RAW conversion software packages since going digital and cannot tell any difference between them.

Some a easier to learn & use though, so they are the ones I went with !

The RAW conversion 'engine' in Lightroom is the same as that in CS, so far as I know. I.e. ACR. As to whether C1 is better, I would say it used to be but may not be now - ACR has been improved and people are happy enough to use it as part of Lightroom.

I started with Capture One but now use ACR.... because I didn't want to pay for an upgrade, having got used to free upgrades for C1. Grin
