Aomei Partition Assistant Standard 6
Create, format, merge, resize, move and otherwise organise your drive partitions with this free tool

Aomei Partition Assistant Standard is an easy-to-use tool to help you set up and manage partitions on your PC's hard drive.

The program provides all the functionality you'd expect, and some you might not. So you can create a partition, format it, make it active and so on. But you can then also work with existing partitions, copying them, reallocating free space, merging, splitting, resizing them and more.

There's never any confusion, though, as Partition Assistant doesn't hide its features away behind complex menus. Just choose a partition and the Partition Operations panel shows you exactly what you can do: simply choose a function to get started.

And don't be fooled by the "Standard" tag. This isn't some crippled free product where you'll click an option only to be told, "no, you can't do that unless you upgrade". If you see an option listed here, then you'll be able to use it (as long as your drive is suitable, anyway).

The program does still have some limitations, of course. It's short on some of the more advanced functionality that you might expect from the paid competition: you can't undelete a partition, for instance, view drive sectors or carry out low-level operations on a drive's MBR.

And if you need preferential technical support then you'll need to upgrade to one of Partition Assistant's commercial builds.

There's plenty here for a free tool, though, so if your partitioning needs are straightforward then Aomei Partition Assistant Standard 5.5 is well worth a look.

Version 6.0 brings:

- Enhanced GPT to MBR disk conversion: support to convert a GPT disk that has more than 4 partitions to MBR disk.
- Fully clone system disk between MBR and GPT partition styles and ensure system is able to boot from destination disk (e.g. clone system disk from GPT to MBR, MBR to GPT, GPT to GPT, MBR to MBR).
- Enhanced the ability of Windows PE bootable disc to recognize devices: automatically integrate existing hardware drivers of current system into Windows PE when creating it.

Verdict:

Partition Assistant is a solid basic partition manager, free for commercial use, with none of the annoying "please upgrade" reminders or hassles that you'll get with some of the competition.

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.
