FILEminimizer Pictures 3.0
Quickly cut your digital photo file sizes by up to 95%

FILEminimizer Pictures is a simple compression tool that resizes and reencodes your digital image to drastically reduce their file size.

How "drastically"? We pointed the program at a folder of 82 JPG images, selected its standard compression setting, clicked the Optimize button, and watched as their file sizes dropped by anything up to 95%. There were a few exceptions - the minimum file size reduction was only 5.5% - but most images ended up at least 50% smaller than they were originally.

There's no great magic as to how this works. Essentially FILEminimizer Pictures is resizing your photos to the resolution of your choice, then optionally saving them with a lower JPEG quality setting to bring the file size down.

Still, if you often want to email a group of images to someone, or maybe create a web gallery to share your latest shots, then using FILEminimizer Pictures will be much easier than manually resizing your photos, and could save you a great deal of time and hassle.

Verdict:

FILEminimizer Pictures is a simple tool that will quickly cut high definition images down to a more manageable size

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.
