ACDSee Free 1.1.21
A clean, simple and speedy image viewer

ACDSee Free is a fast, easy-to-use image viewer.

The program can view all the main image file formats (BMP, GIF, JPEG, PNG, TGA, TIFF, WBMP, PCX, PIC, WMF, EMF). In a click or two you can associate it with those file types so it displays them if you double-click a file in Explorer, or you can just click File > Open within the program to view a file directly.

ACDSee Free provides all the usual image viewing options: there are lots of zoom controls, you can rotate an image, set it as your wallpaper, delete it, perhaps save the file as another format (BMP, GIF, JPEG, PCX, PNG, TGA, TIFF and WBMP exports are supported).

And printing is particularly strong. You can print an image to a standard size (4"x6", 5"x7", 10"x8", whatever you like); there's a choice of filters available if resampling is necessary; you can tweak image gamma, add header and footer text, control the image position, rotation, aspect ratio and more.

ACDSee Free is still a relatively basic viewer. It doesn't provide thumbnail browsing, for instance, and there are plenty of tools around which support many more file formats.

The program is fast, configurable and easy to use, though, and if your image viewing requirements are straightforward then this could be a very good choice.

Verdict:

ACDSee Free isn't overloaded with features, but it carries out the image viewing basics very well, being fast, reliable and easy to use.

I think ACDSee full version is pretty good for what it is, but when you look at all the features of IRFAN View... not only can you view images of many types, but you can do quite a few special effects to images, install the extras and it becomes quite powerful Image Editing and for Viewing images and there is more... batch editing and other things that I am sure I missed, and to top it all off it's FREE.

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.
