PD Artist

Hello again.  We have a quite a bunch of new tutorials, of which we feel one is particularly interesting for photographers. Plus we have the privilege to present Mike Hutchens from Nashville who is a musician/song writer and also a Dogwaffler of the Moment. He created the cover art for his recent CD, "Space between Whispers", in PD Pro 4.
As usual, you can see the html version here:

Thanks for reading and waffling (and listening too, to Mike's tunes).

Dogwaffler of the moment:  Mike Hutchens


Hi Mike, please tell us a little about yourself?

Hi, I'm Mike Hutchens of Nashville, TN. I'm slightly over 60 now (and the foreseeable future), and active as a professional musician. I have released several CDs which are available for sampling at CDBaby, some is Adult Alternative Pop/Rock such as "Crazy" dating back to the early 90's, and Pop & Pop/Rock like "Let the River Run" or "Just Passing Through", then there is "Help a Poor Man Live" which is Blues / R&B, and recently (2012) "Space Between Whispers", which is all instrumental Jazz and Smooth Jazz, and for which I did the cover art in Project Dogwaffle.

How did you become a Dogwaffler?

I found Dogwaffle through a search for art programs on Google. My first version was PD Pro 4/4.1, which I got in 2007.  I now use version 8, the Artist edition, which I just recently upgraded to.

So would you say you're an artist inside and out, visual and acoustic and all that?

I do consider myself an "artist" at heart. I don't paint much but I have clear idea's of what I want to create. Dogwaffle lets me bring my ideas to life. It helps me accompany my musical thoughts and expressions, such as when designing the cover for my new CD.

November 2012 Thanksgiving special: 

Buy PD Pro 6 for just $10(!) (regular $53)

If you're not sure yet whether PD Pro 8 is right for you, and you want to take small steps towards creative bliss, try PD Pro 6 first. We're offering the Howler edition for just $10 this month of November. No coupons needed. This is the full installer, not an upgrade. The regular price for v6 is $53 - you save $43.

Ok, so v6 is not the latest or greatest Howler there ever was anymore, but it still is awesome and if you can't afford v7 or v8 yet, v6 sure is a treat at just $10.  And it is fully supported and upgradeable, should you later want to move up to v8. or beyond.


Another crazy Upgrade promotion: 

Upgrade from v5 (or 4) to v8 with 59% off

Whether you just recently bought PD Pro v5 at our October special of $5, or whether you have been sitting on v5 or v4 for a long time, we think it's time to move up to v8. To that effect, we want to make it easier for you to upgrade. From now till end of November 2012,  you get a 59% discount when upgrading to PD Pro 8, Howler or Artist edition from v4 or v5. Simply contact Philip and tell us you'd like to upgrade to v8 from v4 or v5, whichever you have. We'll then send you a discount coupon for the 59% discount - and you get a full installer.

If you have an even older, earlier version, such as PD Pro 3.5, or any other from before that time, we'll still help you upgrade if you wish, with another discount coupon around 40%-50% depending on your version. Be sure to
contact Philip to request your coupon.
