Ashampoo Burning Studio FREE
Create discs free of charge with Ashampoo Burning Studio 6 FREE

With Windows installed you have the ability to burn basic discs so you can backup files or transfer documents between computers. But if you want to do anything more advanced, such as performing a more involved backup, or creating a video disc, the built in tools are just not going to cut it. The problem with many dedicated disc burning tools is that they are either expensive to buy or complex to use. Ashampoo Burning Studio 6 FREE is neither.

The fact that the program is available free of charge does not mean that you have to make compromises. You can still burn files to not only CD and DVD, but also Blu-ray, and there is a simple wizard that guides you through the process of creating all manner of different disc types. Audio CDs can be created using MP3, WAV, MP3, FLAC, WMA and OGG files on your hard drive and you can also burn video discs that you are able to use in a regular DVD player.

In addition to all of this, you can also rip music from audio CDs, erase re-writable discs and work with disc images. This means that you can not only burn ISO images to disc, but also create your own so you can reduce the contents of an entire CD or DVD to a single file. The very latest version of the program adds support for Windows 8 and improves the performance and stability of the burning engine, making this an excellent all-round burning suite.

One thing to watch out for during the installation is that unless you select the Custom Installation option, you’ll end up with an unwanted browser toolbar being installed alongside the program. In addition to this, the standard, express installation will change your browser home page and search engine, so unless you’re happy with this you should take the time to deselect these options.

What's new in v1.14.5?

- improved burning engine
- general bugfixes

Verdict:

Considering this is a free tool, it is well featured burning tool that is a great alternative to commercial packages.

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.
