Product Key Reader 1.0.2
Scan your PC for Windows and various other product keys

Product Key Reader detects and lists the product keys for Windows and various other applications (potentially very useful if you've lost them and would like to reinstall).

The program is a little dated, unfortunately. It'll only detect the product keys for Windows XP and 7, for instance. It supports Photoshop only up to version CS2, and TuneUP Utilities support seems to have stopped with the 2010 edition.

Still, if you do have some of these older applications or games then Product Key Reader may be handy (and if you have Windows XP or 7 then you'll get that key, at least).

Whatever you're looking for, the program is certainly straightforward in operation. Click Scan and it quickly identifies and lists the product keys for any supported applications on your PC; click Save to save them as a CSV or TXT file, and, well, that's it.

And if you do need more then the authors do recommend you try a commercial product, Recover Keys, instead (it supports many more programs, and later versions, too). Read more on the Product Key Reader site.

Verdict:

Product Key Reader is quick, free and straightforward, but a lack of support for recent software means it's no longer as useful as it was.

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.
