These are the best art and design bargains for Amazon Prime Day.

It’s easy to get lost in Amazon’s Prime Day deals. They feature everything from XBox and PS4 consoles to sex toys – and once you go down the rabbit hole you might not come up again for hours. The deals sit in very broad categories – Tech, Fashion, Pets – and trying to find things that will appeal to designers and artists can be a challenge - especially as there seems to be so very few this year.

So we’ve done the hard work for you, unearthing deals from the likes of Adobe, Corel and more.

Most of the deals are available in limited quantities – so if you see one you like, snap it up before it disappears. And they’ll all be gone by midnight tonight.

All deals are only available to subscribers to the Amazon Prime service, though you could always sign-up for a free trial and cancel in the first month.

Adobe Photoshop CC and Lightroom CC

You can get a year’s subscription to the Adobe Creative Cloud Photography Plan for at least 20% off. In the UK you can get £40 off – down from £109.99 to £79.99 - here.

In the US, it's down from $119.98 to $96. Get the deal here.

In both cases, the discounts are only applied at the checkout and don't show on your total beforehand, which can seem a little confusing.

Though this is primarily aimed at photographers, this is the cheapest way we’ve seen to get your hands on Photoshop CC – and it’s a great deal even if you don’t care about the Lightroom CC photography software (and if you do, so much the better).

In the US only, you can get over $25 off the Elements versions of Photoshop and Premiere. Normally $99.99 on Amazon, you can buy them as a bundle for $74.99 here.

Corel software

From 12.14pm UK time, you'll be able to get money off the latest version Corel's PaintShop Pro Ultimate Edition. Find the deal here.

In the US, the deal is already live, dropping the usual $77.53 price to $59. You can take advantage of this here.

In the US only, you can get $5 off Corel Painter Essentials and $100 off a bundle of CorelDraw Graphics Suite 2018 and the ParticleShop plugin.


Running out of space on your desktop or laptop? In the UK, there's over 30% off this huge, 6TB external hard drive from Seagate - down to £89.99. In the US there's a wider range of deals on Seagate products.

VR headsets

Both UK and US Prime subscribers can get money off Oculus Rift and controllers. In the UK, it's £50 off the usual £399 price. In the US, Amazon won't tell you the discount unless you're a US Prime customer (we're in the UK). If you are, the details are here.

You can get also get 20% off the Samsung Gear VR, down to $89.99 in the US, and money off the HTC Vive.
