As an affiliate of 5DayDeal, we were given access to The Complete Photography Bundle 2017 a few days in advance so we could have first-hand experience with the resources available in the bundle. As such, I thought I'd share a few thoughts on my overall experiences with the bundle (for clarification, we were given access to Main Bundle, Charity Match Bonus and Add-On Bonus material).
First of all, there are a lot of files to download. How many, you ask? The amount of data available for download tips the scales at nearly 50GB. My suggestion is to download the Tools and Presets file first followed by any other files which contain Photoshop actions or Lightroom presets (be sure to check the Charity Match Bonus and Pro Bundle Add-On downloads if you choose those options at checkout).
Once the initial downloads are finished, start downloading the walkthroughs, tutorials and seminars which pique your interest the most. With the second round of downloads started, install the tools and presets (this will likely take a little while as well).
In the few days I've had with the bundle, I've watched numerous instructional videos yet I know I've only scratched the surface. There's so much information that it's a bit overwhelming, but most of the tutorials are broken up into smaller segments making it easier to view here and there over an extended period of time.
While I don't use Lightroom presets or Photoshop actions very often, I have found several of the included tools to be intriguing. There are literally hundreds of analog film presets for lighroom included, and it was genuinely fun to see how the same image appeared with several different presets applied (not all at once, of course). Some of the Photoshop actions proved really interesting, too, and extremely simple to use. The following is an example of a before/after image using two actions from the Endless Winter + Force of Nature (Jessica Drossin) tools:
Portrait Before After 5DayDeal Photography Bundle Plugins

And below is a before/after image using one of the Artistry2 actions by Dave Seeram:
Portrait After Photoshop Plugins2

While these may seem a bit gimmicky, clients tend to really enjoy things like this. So it's definitely worth having a few quick and easy Photoshop actions at hand when clients want "something special" with their images.
Overall, I've been very impressed by the sheer amount of value packed into this bundle, especially at its almost-too-good-to-be-true price point.
Note: I had originally posted that Topaz Impression was provided as part of the main bundle, but unfortunately it is not. When I entered the serial number that was sent to redeem the new Topaz products (Reduce Noise Adjustment, Sharpen Adjustment & Color Theme Adjustment tools), "Impression" was included in the list of tools available available for download. This occurred was because I was still logged into Topaz's website under my previously-generated account, and the site had merged the new products available with my previously-owned product. I apologize for the misunderstanding! [Sean]

Here's an interesting deal: When you spend $30.00 or more on PIXMA PRO-100 ink from the Canon Store, you get a free Pro Photo Paper Variety Pack and free shipping. So what's in a Pro Photo Paper Variety Pack, you ask?
  • (1) Pack of LU-101, 13X19, 50 Sheets
  • (2) Packs of SG-201, 13x19, 50 Sheets
  • (2) Packs of PRO Paper Sampler Package
It's unclear whether or not creating 4 separate, 2-ink cartridge orders (to obtain a complete set of inks with each order exceeding $30.00) will trigger 4 free gifts, but it might be worth a try if you're wanting a backup set of inks for your PIXMA PRO-100.
