Painter upgrades have become too expensive

I originally purchased Painter 2018 and then have upgraded from 2019 to 2021. I wasn't going to upgrade to 2021, but there really seemed to be alot of worthwhile improvements. I really feel that only offering a $30 discount for 2022 is ridiculous. I think it would be much better if Corel saved all of these "huge" upgrades and release them every couple of years or so. It seems like such a money grab when they added so many improvements for 2021 and now even more for 2022. Why not do them together? I only just got 2021 in November before the discount ran out. It might not be so bad if there were any software updates throughout the year. I really can't think of any other graphics software that charges this much for upgrades. I looked for a link to address this with Corel directly but only see the support contact information and Corel support is a joke. If anyone has any other contact information, I would appreciate you sharing it. Thanks for reading.

  • I know it's been 4 months since this post but I just paid $134 CDN to upgrade. I never jump at the first offer when a new release launches and just wait it out until Black Friday comes around. Maybe it does go a bit cheaper but for almost 50% + bonuses this is a great deal imo.
