Legacy Upgrade Discount Through the End of July
Our Legacy Upgrade program has been successful enough that we thought it was a good idea to extend it, at least a little bit, to make sure that everyone had a chance to pick-up the most advanced 3D plug-in for Photoshop CS3 by upgrading their older license of Strata 3D. For the rest of July, the price to upgrade from a legacy version of Strata 3D CX (before version 5) has been cut to $149.

Simply purchase a legacy upgrade before the end of July and enter the coupon code Legadisc50 on the checkout page to receive the $150 discount.
