Recuva 1.53
Scan your drive for lost or deleted files and then recovery to your computer

Head abroad for a long holiday and you many take a handful of digital memory cards for your digital camera and, perhaps your laptop. Problem is, when various members of of your family are taking photos and then moving them to the computer, it’s too easy to delete the files thinking that they are already on your machine.

Windows doesn’t ship with a decent file recovery application, which means that you need a third-party tool to recover files you’ve deleted from your trash can. As it’s always worth keeping file recovery software installed on your computer, but it’s a tool you may rarely use, commercial file recovery software may be out of the question.

Recuva is regarded as one of the best free file recovery tools. You can use it to scan your internal hard drive, any external drive and memory cards such as those in your digital camera. Just select the drive you want scan, run the process and locate the files you want to recover back to your computer.

It does it’s job well. You could even use Recuva to scan and recover data from a formatted drive, particularly if it’s had a quick format. You can also use it to recover deleted emails from clients such as Microsoft Outlook.

Recuva 1.53 adds/fixes:

- Improved Ext4 and Ext3 file system support. 
- Improved Fat32 partition file scanning. 
- Optimized Secure Overwrite on Windows 10. 
- Enhanced drive and partition detection. 
- Improved keyboard navigation. 
- Minor GUI improvements. 
- Minor bug fixes.

Verdict:

Excellent free recovery application that will enable you to quickly and easily recover deleted files

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.
