Photobie
A powerful image editor

Photobie is a free photo editor that includes an array of powerful and unusual features.

The program includes a decent selection of built-in filters, for instance, to sharpen, smooth, blur and otherwise apply special effects to your pictures. But it also supports Photoshop 8BF filter plugins, giving you easy access to thousands of additional creative possibilities.

If you're looking for fine control over your editing work then you'll appreciate Photobie's layer support, too - the program is packed with options to import, rearrange and manipulate layers to suit your needs.

Interesting 3D features include the ability to export your choice of layers to make a 3D cube. And the program can even import and display some 3Ds models, as well as the usual 2D image formats.

There's also an integrated screen grab tool, that can optionally import an image as a new layer. And Photobie can print images as PDF files, combine other images into animated GIFs, or build templates allowing you to save your pictures in attractive digital scrapbooks.

Verdict:

There's a lot to like about Photobie, but the interface has some quirks and it's not always easy to use. Expect to spend a while learning how everything works before you start wielding its power in earnest

Spektrel Art 1.0.0

Free Full Commercial Software

Spektrel Art is a stand-alone program and Photoshop plugin which transforms digital photos into "magical art that glimmers and gleams with intersecting lines of tapered light".

What does that mean? Essentially it applies a configurable mix of effects, enhancing edges, smoothing backgrounds and emphasizing colours. Take a look at the thumbnail for one example, and the official product page has more.

Spektral Art works much like any similar tool. Open an image, click one of the thumbnails to apply a particular preset, or click a few buttons and drag some sliders to fine-tune the results.

There's surprising scope for variation, too. For example, just switching from the "Light" to "Dark" theme can transform a bright and friendly image into something dark and sinister, at least in some cases (results vary depending on the source image).

Please note, the demo version doesn't allow images to be saved.

SPECIAL OFFER: as we write, the developer is offering Spektral Art for free. The offer expires August 29th. Please note that you must provide your name, address and phone number to receive your free license.
