Genie Timeline Home 2016
Protect your most valuable files with this exceptionally easy-to-use backup tool

Genie Timeline Home is a very easy-to-use backup tool which works almost entirely automatically.

When you first launch the program you'll have to select the destination drive for your backups (a network drive is just fine). You can then check boxes to confirm the type of file you'd like to back up (Office files, pictures, emails, music, documents and so on). And if you want to define specific files or folders to back up then you can do that, too.

Once this is all set up, though, there's no need to do anything else. The program runs when it's necessary (which means when your files have changed and your PC is idle). If it's interrupted, perhaps because your PC closes down or reboots then the program will resume later, just where it left off. And if you need to restore one or two files at some later date, or your entire backup, then the Restore tool makes it easy.

In addition to all this, Genie Timeline Home has been enhanced with plenty of new features.

Backup speeds are twice the speed of the previous version, for instance.

The program is smarter, less likely to store multiple copies of the same file, so reducing backup space requirements.

Explorer folder icons will have a marker to indicate which ones are backed up. And it's now quicker and easier to restore the files you need.

The Home edition allows you to run your backups on a schedule, and more frequently (every 30 minutes if you like, as opposed to every 8 hours for the Free edition). It supports Disaster Recovery, so you can restore your PC even if Windows won't boot. Backups can be compressed to reduce space, a Game/ Movie mode reduces alerts, and you're allowed to use it commercially.

What's new in 2016?

- Enhanced the encryption of backed up file names and applied the same 256-bit AES
- Improved backup breakdown display speeds and listing resource usage.
- Enhanced Interface for ease of use.
- Enhancing the database building.
- Fixes for Backup History and Recycle Bin. Faster loading and file listing.
- Fully compatible with Windows 8, 8.1 and 10.
- Under the hood improvements on backup speeds, file analysis algorithms and file queuing.

Verdict:

Simple backup tool that enables you to select the data you want to backup, backup to more than one location, then recover via a history timeline if required in the future

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.
