Shutter 3.3
Shut down your PC depending on a timer, battery level, low CPU usage, process...

Shutter is a portable tool which can automatically shut down (or reboot, log off and more) your PC when your chosen event occurs.

This can just be a simple timer. Set it to 10 minutes, say, select the "Shutdown" action, click Start and the program will begin to count down, turning your system off when it gets to zero.

That's just the start, though. You can also ask the program to activate at a specific time; when your CPU usage drops below a particular level; when a user hasn't been active for a given amount of time; when your battery level drops below a certain figure; when a window closes, or a process stops, and more.

Despite its name, Shutter isn't just about shutting down. You can alternatively have the program sleep or hibernate your system, turn off your monitor, mute or unmute the master volume, play an alarm, and more.

And the Options dialog reveals even more power. You can have the program run specific programs when the defined event occurs, for instance, play a sound, or close named windows. There are lots of ways to fine tune things, including the ability to restart an event when it's been triggered. You even get a web interface to control the program remotely.

Yet all of this comes in a portable program which requires less than 1MB disk space, is free for personal use (commercial users must contact the author for a licence), and supremely easy to operate: just choose and configure a shutdown event, select an action and you're ready to go.

Recent changes include:
* Dropdown menu of actions and events converted to a list menu;
* Enhanced "Close Window" action with methods: Close, Quit and Kill;
* Default method for "Close Window" action is changed from Quit to Close;
* Added option to autorun at windows logon for the current user;
 

Verdict:

Shutter is a powerful tool which provides all kinds of ways to automatically and conditionally shut down (or reboot, or sleep etc) your PC

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.
