Hamster Free Burning Studio
Hamster Free Burning Studio is an approachable disc burner for beginners

While very functional, burning discs at your computer is hardly the most exciting thing you can use your hardware for. Once you have got into the habit of burning data to CD and DVD, you think nothing of running off a copy of your latest holiday photos, but for newcomers the entire process can be rather bewildering. Hamster Free Burning Studio is a free disc burning suite that boasts an ultra-friendly interface that will not be off-putting to even the most nervous novice.

The free version of the program can be used to create and copy CDs, DVDs, Blurays and ISO images, and a simple, clean selection screen greets you to enable you to choose what task you would like to perform. If you are copying a disc, you will be guided wizard-style through the process, but there is a more hands-on approach to create a data disc.

You can opt to drag and drop folders or files into place, or you can navigate through the contents of your drive, selecting what you would like to add as you go. You also have the option of working in mini-mode which reduces the size of the program window to a minimum and leaves to you work in drag and drop mode.

Unlike many disc burning tools that have a very utilitarian and often intimating interface, Hamster lives up to its cute and fluffy name. The interface is about as inviting and unintimidating as it could be, and there are a number of colour schemes to choose from.

Verdict:

Simple, cute and useful, this is an ideal beginner’s burning tool that has the basics covered.

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.
