Document Metadata Cleaner
Detect and clean unwanted metadata from Microsoft Office documents

Document Metadata Cleaner is a free tool which removes metadata from older Office documents (doc, xls, ppt, not docx, xlsx or pptx).

The program installs without hassle, no adware or marketing worries. And clicking Analyze allows you to start the reporting process. Decide which documents you'd like to check (Word, Excel, and/ or Powerpoint), point the program at a file or folder, click Next, and you'll soon be looking at a list of files, along with some of the data they contain.

Clicking Clean Files then allows you to process them, and you get to decide exactly what to do. There are options to clear the Title, Subject, Keywords and Comments, for instance; reset the Author, Company, Template name, revision count and editing time; and you can remove the revision log, wipe the Recent Hyperlinks list, strip out the document GUID, and more. Select some or all of the options on offer, and you can delete them with a click.

Verdict:

Document Metadata Cleaner is quick and reasonably easy to use, but the fact that it doesn't work with docx/ xlsx/ pptx files is a major issue.

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.
