Tag&Rename
Tag&Rename enables you to edit track information for your music collection

The chances are that you have a large number of MP3s, and possible other music files, on your hard drive. One of the great things about MP3s is the fact that they can be tagged with metadata so that they can be searched in a variety of ways. If you purchase music from one of the many online stores that are available you will probably find that they are correctly tagged up for you, but this is not necessarily the case and if you are ripping your CD collection, you may want a tool to help you out.

This is precisely the job of Tag&Rename. The program can be used to manually or automatically tag a whole series of audio files in batches, using information gleaned from online music databases to identify track details. If you have taken the trouble to organize your music in artist and album folders, this structure can be used as a naming convention for your files and the range of supported file types is impressive.

In addition to text based tags, the program will also download album art for you and you have the option of export data to HTML, CSV or XML files. Tag&Rename can be used to create playlists, but in many respects this is a tool that has already been superseded by the abilities of many music players. This may be a capable piece of software, but at the same time it feels somewhat out-dated and the interface could certainly be easier on the eye.

The program can also be installed as a portable app on your USB drive so you can easily move the software from one computer to another to work with MP3s on different machines. You also have the option of using context menus so if you are browsing through your music collection and spot a file that is incorrectly tagged, you can right click to access program options rather than having to launch the app first and then navigating to the file in question.

Version 3.9.8 (see history for more) brings:

- added Korean translation
- updated Estonian translation
- fixed minor bug in ID3v2 cover art support
- minor improvement in Vorbis Comments and APE tags support

Verdict:

This is an app that is easy to use, but many of its features are already available in media players as standard – and the price is a little offputting.

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.
