Ashampoo Home Designer 2.0
Plan out the look of your next home decoration or renovation project

Ashampoo Home Designer is a 3D home planning tool which makes it easy to see how your next home project will look, without having to pay for a professional designer.

You start by providing the dimensions of your room, then add walls, windows, doors, maybe carpets to create the initial shell. Then you'll add further objects - the tables, chairs, bath, TV cooker, whatever's appropriate - and reorganise, rearrange and relocate these until you find the layout you need.

And then you can dress it further for enhanced realism. Would your room look better with parquet flooring or granite tiles, for instance? Choose the appropriate material and you'll see, right away. You're even able to import your own photos to use as backgrounds, maybe a view of your garden as it will appear through the window, to give you the best possible idea of how your romm will appear in real life.

It's hard to tell what works from a standard 2D view, of course, so Ashampoo Home Designer also allows you to look at your new room from any angle and position: outside the room, inside, above or below, from the door, the window, with whatever perspective and zoom factor you like.

Whatever your viewpoint, professional lighting and ray-tracing algorithms mean the program will quickly deliver an attractive and very realistic view of your plan. And you can then share this with others in a variety of ways, from multiple bitmaps showing the room from every angle, to lists of the fixtures, fittings and materials you've used, perfect if you now want to ask a professional builder or other tradesman to carry out this work for you.

Verdict:

The program is a little short on 3D objects - there are only a few kitchen appliances, for instance - but if you can make do with the selection on offer then Ashampoo Home Designer will prove a straightforward and easy-to-use CAD and home planning tool

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 (v11.0.6)

Free Full Commercial Software

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 is a compact, simple, but surprisingly feature-packed disc burning suite.

The program makes it easy to create simple data discs and audio CDs, for instance: just drag and drop your files onto the list area and you'll be burning the finished disc in a couple of clicks.

That's just the start, though. Burning Studio 2013 can also create data discs with customised, interactive multi-page menus, perfect if you'd like a more professional way to share and present the disc contents.

A built-in backup tool allows you to create backups which may be encrypted, compressed, and span several CDs, DVDs and Blu-rays.

And there are modules to create VCD or SVCD video projects; burn video DVDs or Blu-ray discs from prepared folders; create, browse or burn disc images (ISO, CUE/ BIN and Ashdisc formats are supported); copy discs, erase them, design and print disc covers, labels and booklets, and more.

The focus throughout is on ease of use, though, and so Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 remains very straightforward, whatever you're doing. Most disc projects are created via the same simple interface, and for the most part all you have to do is drag and drop the necessary files. But experts will find more advanced options are only a click away, and if you need to then you can set ISO and UDF version, enable Joliet, make a disc bootable and more.

Note the download here will take you to the Downloadcrew Software Store where you can download Burning Studio 2013.
