PortScan
Quickly find out more about the devices connected to your network

PortScan is a simple tool which can quickly scan your system (or just a defined IP address range) to reveal any connected network devices.

The program is portable, and very easy to use. Just launch it, choose your scan type - ports, devices and so on - and any necessary parameters, like starting and ending IP addresses. Or just click "Scan" and wait for the report.

The report is surprisingly detailed. For any connected PCs, say, you'll see their IP address, network and host name, open ports and network shares, amongst other information. And when scanning for devices, PortScan uses a variety of techniques to retrieve all kinds of related information. It gave us the make and model of our router, for instance; its home page URL, MAC address, IP address, UPnP details and a whole lot more.

Elsewhere, a Ping tab also allows you to ping particular IP addresses or host names, and see basic statistics on the results.

And there's even a Speed Test tab which uses multiple servers to figure out your internet connection's upload and download speed.

That's not bad at all for a portable program under 600KB in size, then. And if you're ever involved in any kind of network diagnostics or troubleshooting then there's a good chance PortScan will be able to help.

Version: 1.57 · New: Command line option added,

Verdict:

An easy to use, lightweight network scanner which returns a host of useful information

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.
