Free Image Printer 1.0.6
Save any application print job as a PDF or image file

Free Image Printer is an interesting tool which allows you to save just about any document as PDF, an image, spreadsheet, HTML or MHT file, and more.

Please note, though, it's also unusually sneaky when it comes to installing addons. Work through the setup program and you'll reach a page called "Select Additional Tasks", which includes an item "Billiger.de & Complitly". This is checked by default, and if you leave it that way you'll get a couple of browser addons installed as well - so clear the checkbox if that doesn't appeal.

And the program also displays an ad for another program of the author's, every time you try to print something. Which can be a little annoying.

That aside, though, Free Image Printer is straightforward and effective. To launch it, just choose the Print option from any application, and select "Free Image Printer".

Within a second or two Free Image Printer will pop up, displaying your document in a simple, multi-page viewer.

Various menu options allow you to save it as a PDF/ HTML/ MHT/ RTF/ XLS/ BMP/ GIF/ EMF/ WMF/ TIFF file, email it (as one of those document types), or just print it to an actual printer (perhaps useful if you want a PDF and printed copy, say).

And you even get some control over how the file is created. Export your document as a PDF, say, and you can set the quality of any images it contains, define a password and other security details, assign document metadata, and more. While if you save the document as HTML you can give it a page title, set your preferred character set, choose to remove carriage returns, and so on.

The marketing hassles are a pain, then. But Free Image Printer really is free, and if you've ever wanted a virtual printer which saved to more than just PDFs then it could be an interesting option.

Verdict:

The heavy-duty marketing will put off some, and Free Image Printer doesn't have the flexibility of some PDF creators. It can export your documents to a wide range of formats, though, and that means it could still be very useful

Unreal Engine 4.7.2.0

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."
