UltraSearch
Locate files and folders in a flash with this ultra-speedy search tool

UltraSearch is an easy-to-use free search tool which can locate files and folders almost instantly.

The program achieves its high performance by directly accessing the NTFS Master File Table (MFT), which holds details on every file and folder on your PC. And so it's able to return results immediately, typically in around a second or two, without having to waste time or resources building an index: just enter a keyword and watch the results appear.

This only works with NTFS-based drives, of course. Use it on a FAT-based drive, or to search by content alone, and UltraSearch runs at more normal speeds.

Version 2.1.1 (Changelog):

•Bugfix: An error occurring while starting UltraSearch has been fixed.

•Bugfix: The option 'Always sort results' was not recognized after a program restart. This problem has been solved.

•Bugfix: In some cases starting UltraSearch via command line parameters yielded wrong results. This issue has been fixed.

•Bugfix: The values of the 'File version' column were not calculated until a row was selected. This error has been resolved.

•Bugfix: Some settings were reverted during a program update. This is no longer the case.

•The icons of the exclude filter and the file groups have been updated.

Verdict:

While it's not a replacement for Windows Search, UltraSearch can be a useful addition, as the program makes it very quick and easy to search for files and folders by name.

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.
