As usual, a number of photography brands and photo editing software companies have kicked off the annual Black Friday deals a week before the actual date. Below is a list of the current deals, and more will be revealed almost on a daily basis.
Topaz Labs Image Quality Bundle –
Get DeNoise AI, Gigapixel AI and Sharpen AI for a 60% discount at $99.99. ($84.99 with our coupon code)
These are the only plugins that I regularly use in my photo editing workflow. They come with my highest recommendation.

Big Online Stores
I cannot possibly list all the good deals on B&H as there are, quite literally, thousands of them. I’ve pulled out a few that jumped up at me from the page, but I highly suggest you dig into the Holiday Deal page, or simply search for the products you want. There is a good chance they will have some sort of discount on them during this period.

Topaz Labs has developed an incredible set of AI applications in the past few years.

WPRocket speeds up your WordPress photography portfolio or blog. From 2021 onwards, Google puts enormous importance on website speed as a ranking factor in Google Search results. You need a fast website if you want your website to show up in Google searches ahead of your competitors. WPRocket will help you get there.
WordPress Website Hosting
Kinsta doesn’t actually offer Black Friday deals. Their hosting prices are the same every day of the year. I respect that. They know they have a great product. In fact, Shutter Muse is hosted with Kinsta. That’s how much I trust them.
Kinsta is a WordPress specialist and has the best technical support out there. They are not the cheapest WordPress hosts, but if you need reliable service with incredible support, there’s nobody better. And, if you pay yearly, you can get two months for free.
The speed of a Kinsta hosted website is particularly noteworthy. That’s really what you’re paying for. Website speed is being taken into account when Google chooses search ranking positions, so it’s important to have a website that is faster than your competitor’s. If your photo business is in the competitive market, Kinsta’s speed will give you an almost unfair advantage!
