PhotoFiltre
PhotoFiltre is a powerful, free image editor

Take a look at PhotoFiltre and the number of buttons to be found in the various toolbars can be a little overwhelming to start with. The somewhat cluttered nature may be off-putting initially, but if you stick with the app you will find that it is pleasingly powerful and is a cut above the usual freeware image editors that clutter the market. In terms of raw power and features, this is a tool that is on a par with the GIMP, but it is more accessible.

The dazzling array of buttons may seem like clutter to start with, but it does mean that there are a large number of options available to you immediately without the need to navigate through endless menus. There is support for a wide range of image formats and the ability to batch process files is very useful.

A great feature of PhotoFiltre is its speed. Many image editors are large, unwieldy beasts that can take an age to load, but this is certainly not the case here. Effects, filters and transformations are also applied to images quickly. Whether you are looking to optimize your images for use on the web, or want to perform more creative edits, everything you need can be found in the app.

One of the problems with previous versions of the app was the lack of support for layers, but this is something that has been addressed in version 7. In addition to this, there is now also support for transparencies which opens up opportunities that were not previously available. This may not be the most attractive of programs, but if you can turn a blind eye to the way it looks, you have a powerful tool on your hands.

Verdict:

An aesthetically challenged app that deserves recognition for the power it brings free of charge.

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.
