Stream your computer's display to Apple TV with AirParrot

AirParrot is a clever tool which adds makes it possible to stream whatever you see on your Mac or PC’s display to your Apple TV, wirelessly. A great way to watch movies that you have stored on your Mac on your larger TV screen? Maybe: there's audio streaming, overscan support ensures the image will fill your PC, and you can even minimise distractions by hiding the mouse cursor.

Getting up and running could hardly be simpler. After installing the app you need then simply indicate which of your displays you would like to mirror, choose which AirPlay device you would like to mirror to (if you have more than one) and then you’re ready to go.

The app works by encoding your display and streaming the output and in some cases this can lead to a degradation of image quality. Thankfully, there are a series of simple options available that can be used to control image quality to help balance video quality with overall performance. This is already an interesting tool, but future updates are likely to increase its appeal even further.

What's new in 2.5.1 (see the release notes for more)?

-  Resolved an issue connecting to a Chromecast running the latest Chromecast software update

Verdict:

 An app that shows great signs of promise, and is already worth a trial run.

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.
