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

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.
