    Downloading now.... 43 files from 5MB to 1.5GB size to download, so you need a fast connection.

    I downloaded the whole package yesterday, ~35GB total.
    If you found any 2 items beneficial to your photography, then it's already worth the price.
    The few items I went through, quality is high. They are actually sold as listed price on individual contributor's site.

    Do they offer an easy way (ie: a few clicks) to download the entire package, or do you have to download each separately (there are so many it sounds like a chore).

    I don't think they have a combined download. 43 downloads total.

    I preferred separated downloads for 2 reasons:
    1. multiple concurrent downloads maximize download bandwidth.
    2. In case one download got messed up, you don't need to re-download the whole big package again.

    you should contact them to correct the problem because there's no mention of any limit, except for this (from the purchase email):

    "Portrait Lighting on Location Redemption Code:
    xxx-xxxxxxx
    Instructions: Please enter this code on the checkout page at Digital Photo Mentor to receive your included online membership in the Portrait Lighting on Location class. This course is limited to the first ten thousand registered users. This is the only product with a limit."

    I bought it.. takes some time to download though. What else there is apart those 45 download links?
    What do we get in terms of software?

    software in the package included only Topaz Remask (Photoshop plugin) and the 300+ Photoshop actions + Lightroom presets they mentioned.

    I am still downloading mine (ran into a bit of a disk space issue that has delayed my process as I move files to NAS... D'oh!) and I am now hoping that I didn't mess anything up with the coupon code. I guess I will have to dig through the documentation a bit to find out...

    I received a thank you email from 5DayDeal team and part of it reads:
    "Again, thank you for your purchase. We hope you are enjoying your bundle. If you have any questions please feel free to respond to this e-mail and let us know how we can help."

    So I replied with the issue of being unable to register for Liquid & Splash class. The sent me a new registration code for the class and it worked.
