JPEGView
A tiny but surprisingly powerful image viewer

JPEGView is a small image viewer which is absolutely crammed with interesting features.

The program supports a good range of file types, including some RAW formats: JPEG, BMP, PNG, TIFF, GIF, WEBP, WDP, HDP, JXR, PEF, DNG, CRW, NEF, CR2, MRW, RW2, ORF, X3F, KDC, NRW, DCR, SR2 and RAF. And it loads and processes them quickly, too, thanks to its support for SSE2 and multiple cores.

Once open, you can open and resize an image by spinning the mouse wheel, or using a hotkey (there are keyboard shortcuts for every mouse action). And a small control overlay at the bottom of the window provides various useful options. You can step backwards and forwards through images in the same folder, for instance; switch to a full screen or "actual size" view; rotate images by fixed increments or just by dragging the mouse (an on-screen grid helps you get it aligned); and there's perspective correction, auto image enhancement, and a simple EXIF viewer.

JPEGView would be useful if it only did this - but the program is just getting started. Move your mouse cursor below the control overlay and more options should fade into view (if they don't, maximise the window and try again). A collection of sliders allow you to tweak contrast, brightness, contrast, colours (CMY/ RGB); there are options to tweak your shadows, and highlights, correct colours and contrast; there's an Unsharp Mask option, and you can even give the image a new name.

Still not impressed? Then right-click the image for even more. Like the option to display your images as a slideshow or movie (that is, at speeds of anything up to 100 per second); a complete batch file renamer/ copier; and a settings file which gives you more options, including the ability to extend JPEGView with other programs and custom commands.

With all this power, you might think JPEGView is going to be confusing - but it really isn't. Most of the more advanced options are hidden away, so on launch you're only presented with a basic navigation bar, simple enough for almost anyone to use. But experienced users can then easily explore further (hint: start by pressing F1 for a lengthy list of hotkeys).

Version 1.0.33:

Bugs fixed:
- Fixed error when deletion of file fails (e.g. because it is on a read-only storage)
New features:
- Support for image printing
- Free rotation is now stored in the parameter DB if no destructive processing (e.g. crop) has been applied before
- Free rotation can be chained without error propagation because image is reloaded before rotation is applied.
- New INI file settings:
  - MinimalWindowSize=width height
    Allows setting the minimal window size in pixels
  - MinimalDisplayTime = value
    Minimal display time of an image when using the PgDn/PgUp keys (in milliseconds [0..1000 ms])

Verdict:

JPEGView delivers a stack of useful image viewing and editing features, all presented with great care and attention, in a very well designed interface. Exceptional.

Unreal Engine 4.8

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."

8.48 brings:
    - Optimized grass rendering and procedural foliage system preview
    - Plugins available in Marketplace
    - Improved accuracy for motion blur
    - New Tone Mapper
    - Support for all the latest VR hardware including Oculus Rift, Samsung Gear VR, Steam VR and HTC Vive, Leap Motion, and Sony's Project Morpheus for PlayStation 4
    - "Scrubbable" network replays with rewind support and live time scrubbing
    - Visualize the memory footprint of game assets in an interactive tree map UI
