PhotoView 1.4.0.0
Easily review your photo collection with this portable thumbnail browser

PhotoView is a simple portable image viewer with one or two unusual extra features.

Browsing works much like most similar tools. Click a folder in the Explorer-type pane and you'll see thumbnails of all the images it contains; clicking one of these will display it in the preview pane.

The viewer is more thorough than most, though. Turn on the Magnifier (View > Magnifier), for example, and you'll get a resizable rectangle which you can drag over any part of the image to see a magnified view (far more convenient than always zooming in and scrolling, though you can do that as well).

There's also easy viewing of image EXIF data, and oddly the program makes it look as though you can edit this: you can put your own name in as the photographer, say. But for some reason any modification you make isn't saved.

A histogram gives you a quick look at the image colour balance, and you're able to apply a few basic manipulations and filters - flip, rotate, invert, greyscale, equalise - before saving the results in a variety of formats (BMP, GIF, TIF, JPG, PNG).

It's all fairly basic, but well presented, and perhaps the program's main selling point is its extreme portability: the authors say it should run on every version of Windows from 95 through to Windows Server 2008 R2.

Verdict:

PhotoView can be a little slow to display large JPEGs, but otherwise this is a straightforward and easy-to-use image viewer

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
