COOLTWEAK 1.1.2
Resize, watermark and share your images from the Explorer right-click menu

COOLTWEAK is a versatile tool which allows you to resize, watermark or share your images from the Explorer right-click menu.

Right-click a JPEG, and click Cooltweak! > Resize, for instance, and you're able to resize the image to a specific size, or according to various presets ('19" wallpaper', '24" wallpaper', 'Facebook album picture', 'printable photo', 'printable CD cover' and more).

Choose the "Add a watermark" option and you can add a text or image watermark to the photo. This can be as simple as typing a word and having it appear in the centre of the picture, but you can also choose the position of the watermark, whether it appears once or is repeated, its margins, opacity, angle of rotation, and more.

You also get options to share your selected images directly via Facebook, Picasa or Twitter.

And if you don't like some aspect of COOLTWEAK's context menu then it can be customised via the built-in editor. You don't have a Picasa account, say? Then delete that option. Maybe you regularly resize images to 1024x768? Then add a menu option to handle that directly.

There are one or two small oddities here.

When you're resizing, for instance, you don't have a preview of the image you're working on. So if there's some uncertainty over the dimensions, you must produce a resized version, view it as normal, then resize again if necessary.

And the program's interface is unusual, more like a web browser than a regular Windows tool, with large dialogs where you often have to scroll to see all your options.

For all that COOLTWEAK is a useful tool, highly configurable, lightweight (the program doesn't use any resources until you launch it) and entirely free, with no adware annoyances to worry about. If you regularly resize, watermark or share images then it could be very useful.

Verdict:

The interface is a little unusual, but otherwise COOLTWEAK is a very configurable graphics tool with a lot of useful features

Unreal Engine 4.8

Free Full Commercial Software

Unreal Engine is Epic Games' game engine, a powerful suite of tools for developing anything from basic 2D games to professional RPGs, first person shooters and whatever else you like.

Wide standards support - DirectX, OpenGL, JavaScript/ WebGL - means your projects can be targeted to almost any platform: consoles, iOS, Android, Windows, OS X, Linux, HTML5 browsers and more.

There's a vast amount to learn, of course, and that's even before you start building your game. But there's plenty of documentation, tutorials, demos and sample projects to point you in the right direction.

The package is now entirely free, too - no annoying limitations, nag screens or anything else. Epic now only requires that you pay a 5% royalty after the first $3,000 of revenue per product per quarter. And even then, you "pay no royalty for film projects, contracting and consulting projects such as architecture, simulation and visualization."

8.48 brings:
    - Optimized grass rendering and procedural foliage system preview
    - Plugins available in Marketplace
    - Improved accuracy for motion blur
    - New Tone Mapper
    - Support for all the latest VR hardware including Oculus Rift, Samsung Gear VR, Steam VR and HTC Vive, Leap Motion, and Sony's Project Morpheus for PlayStation 4
    - "Scrubbable" network replays with rewind support and live time scrubbing
    - Visualize the memory footprint of game assets in an interactive tree map UI
