WinScan2PDF
A tiny tool for saving scanned documents as PDF files

WinScan2PDF is a tiny free program which will work with your scanner to accept one or more pages, and save them as a PDF file.

If your existing scanner software doesn't support PDF export then this has obvious appeal. But even if it does, you may prefer WinScan2PDF for its ease of use. There's no complexity here, no hidden features, no menus, no options to configure - it's all just very straightforward.

All you need to do, then, is click Select Source and choose your scanner.

Click "Scan to PDF" and the program will initiate a page scan. (If this is a multi-page document then check the "Multiple Pages" box.)

And when it's done, enter a file name and your PDF file will be created. That's it.

This does mean there are no other smart options for the PDF. You can't, say, password-protect it if the document is something important. You can't add a header page, or do anything to affect the default output. Still, if you simply need PDF output for your scanned pages then WinScan2PDF works well, and as it's also portable - any settings are held in an INI file - then it's very safe to try. If it doesn't suit your needs, delete the program's download file and installation folder and it'll be wiped from your PC, with no traces remaining.

Version 2.91:
    - Corrections when add png images via drag & drop.

Verdict:

WinScan2PDF delivers precisely what its name promises, quickly converting scanned pages to PDF files. There's nothing else at all - the main interface is just three buttons and a checkbox - so it's rather basic, but also small and very easy to use

Unreal Engine 4.8

Free Full Commercial Software

Unreal Engine is Epic Games' game engine, a powerful suite of tools for developing anything from basic 2D games to professional RPGs, first person shooters and whatever else you like.

Wide standards support - DirectX, OpenGL, JavaScript/ WebGL - means your projects can be targeted to almost any platform: consoles, iOS, Android, Windows, OS X, Linux, HTML5 browsers and more.

There's a vast amount to learn, of course, and that's even before you start building your game. But there's plenty of documentation, tutorials, demos and sample projects to point you in the right direction.

The package is now entirely free, too - no annoying limitations, nag screens or anything else. Epic now only requires that you pay a 5% royalty after the first $3,000 of revenue per product per quarter. And even then, you "pay no royalty for film projects, contracting and consulting projects such as architecture, simulation and visualization."

8.48 brings:
    - Optimized grass rendering and procedural foliage system preview
    - Plugins available in Marketplace
    - Improved accuracy for motion blur
    - New Tone Mapper
    - Support for all the latest VR hardware including Oculus Rift, Samsung Gear VR, Steam VR and HTC Vive, Leap Motion, and Sony's Project Morpheus for PlayStation 4
    - "Scrubbable" network replays with rewind support and live time scrubbing
    - Visualize the memory footprint of game assets in an interactive tree map UI
