MAGIX Photo Designer 7
Edit, optimise or get creative with your digital photos

MAGIX Photo Designer 7 is a straightforward tool that will help you to get more from your digital photos.

It provides all the basic image manipulation options, for instance: rotate, flip, resize, crop and so on. Problem-solving tools will help you to remove red-eye, and automatically fix exposure, colour or white balance issues. And there are a selection of filters that will sharpen or blur an image, distort it in various ways, or transform it into a mosaic or oil painting.

The "special effects" list isn't too lengthy - we've seen many free tools that offer more - but Photo Designer makes up for this with its sheer volume of configuration options. When you choose the "Painting" effect, say, your image will be transformed into a work of art immediately. But if you don't like the results, then you can tweak the brush, brush size, direction of stroke, colour, paper and transparency, as well as choosing from more than 27 predefined styles - it's really very comprehensive.

And it's a similar story elsewhere. As you explore Photo Designer you'll notice apparent deficiencies at first, like its distinct lack of drawing and paint tools. But every so often you discover impressive options that more than make up for this, like the powerful selection tools, its ability to create panorama pictures from multiple photos, or a batch processing tool that can resize, rotate and apply any set of Photo Designer effects to a folder full of images, all at once.

Verdict:

It's short on drawing and paint tools, and sometimes awkward to use, but MAGIX Photo Designer makes up for this with a host of useful editing features that can help to transform your digital photos

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.
