DameWare Mini Remote Control
Use DameWare Mini Remote Control to take control of remote computers

The option of remotely accessing a computer that is located in a different room, a different building or even a different country is fantastically useful, and there are various ways in which this can be achieved. So popular has remote access become that Microsoft even included a remote access tool in its own operating system. While this is a functional tool, if you want more control over your remote sessions, you may find it helpful to turn to a third party tool.

DameWare Mini Remote Control is different from other similar remote access tools in two key areas. Firstly, it has been designed to be particularly light on resources so it offers impressive performance, and the fact that it makes use of Windows APIs means that overall program size can be reduced while maintaining the independence of the software.

The second unique feature of the software is the fact that it supports Interactive Smart Card Login as well as Remote Smart Card Authentication. This is particularly useful option for professional systems which require user authentication to gain access to different options.

Despite its power and relative ease of use, the price tag attached to DameWare Mini Remote Control is certainly offputting. There are numerous remote access tools available at a fraction of the cost, or even free of charge, so it may well be difficult to justify the outlay demanded by this software. That said, the feature set is such that the application is clearly aimed at a more professional market, and in this field the program actually represents fairly good value for money.

Verdict:

An expensive remote access solution for home users, but for business environments the security features come at a good price point.

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.
