NexusImage 1.1.3.992
An interesting portable image viewer with some unusual extras

NexusImage is a lightweight, portable and easy-to-use image viewer.

Launch the program and you can browse straight to an image in the folder you'd like to view. At this point we weren't too impressed; file format support here is limited (jpg, png, bmp, gif, ico, tiff, wmf, emf, jp2, j2k), and there's no Explorer-like thumbnail browser. Once you've chosen an image, any other pictures in the same folder are displayed in a scrollable strip on the right-hand side of the screen, but this is only really useful when browsing folders with small numbers of images.

Get past these issues, though, and NexusImage does have a few points in its favour. The program can rotate and zoom in on a particular image, for instance, but a "smooth stretch" setting helps to minimise any pixellation or image artefacts as it works, so your pictures look better even at the highest magnifications.

Open the program's Exif window and you'll be able to view the metadata of each image as it's displayed.

There's an option to set the current image as your desktop background. You can add a caption to an image to help you remember something about it (this doesn't affect the picture itself, it's just for use in NexusImage). And there are shortcut keys for everything, so once you've mastered these then the program is very quick and easy to use.

Version 1.1.3.992 brings:

•Improved: Keyborad Shortcuts
 Previous Image: Down or Right arrow
 Next Image: Up or Left arrow
 Zoom In: + or Z
 Zoom Out: - or Shift + Z

•Added: Show in Explorer
•Added: Flip Horizontal/Vertical
•Added: Edit with function. You can add editors and open an image you are viewing with one of those editors.
 Shift + Click an editor if you want to edit or delete an editor.
•Added: Show/Hide StatusBar function. You can view images without titlebar and statusbar.
•Improved: Menu structure changed.

Verdict:

NexusImage can't compete with the "do everything" image viewers; if you need support for hundreds of file formats and an industry-strength thumbnail browser then you should probably look elsewhere. The program does just fine for more basic purposes, though - it's lightweight, portable, looks good and has some convenient bonus features

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.
