There are two kinds of Photoshop add-ons offered at PanosFX.com:
- The paid add-ons with free trials.
This category contains our paid add-ons. For most of these add ons there is also a free (trial) version available for download, with limited functionality. You can use the trial version for evaluation purposes, or with any non-commercial projects. However if you want to use the add-on commercially, you must purchase the full version.
- The free add-ons.
These add-ons (actions, brushes, etc.) can be used freely on any home & commercial projects.
You can read more information about using our add-ons, in our Terms of Service.
The files are distributed in zip format. If you don't know how to install them in Photoshop or in PS Elements, please refer to these installation instructions.
There are two kinds of new version releases: updates and upgrades:
- A product update adds minor enhancements that improve the operation of an existing product version. Updates may also provide fixes for certain features that aren’t working as expected. Product updates are released more frequently and are free of charge.
- A product upgrade is a new product version, which offers major changes and improvements over the current product version. Product upgrades are released less frequently. Product upgrades are not provided free of charge (unless PanosFX decides so). Owners of older product versions may purchase the latest version at a discounted price, determined by PanosFX.
As a customer of PanosFX, you are given a free re-download period that lasts 2 years after the purchase. When this period is over you can continue using the files you purchased. Owners of an older version qualify for a special discount, whenever they wish to upgrade to the latest version. Just send us a request and we will email you back the discount code.
