JPEGView 1.0.32.2
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 1.0.32.2:

Bugs fixed:
- More tolerance on corrupt EXIF data offsets - image is now displayed in this case (without EXIF of course)
- Showing mouse cursor before asking for confirmations if mouse cursor was off before
- ESC works again when no image is loaded into JPEGView (e.g. because the last image in a folder was deleted)
- Taking DisplayMonitor into account also in windowed mode, not only fullscreen mode
- Using forced sort order on command line (e.g. /order Z) also for slideshow lists

New features:
- Set current image as desktop wallpaper
  You can either set the original image (in Windows XP only BMP is supported) or the processed image as displayed. The later is using also the size as displayed.

Other changes:
- Removed 'Edit global settings' menu entry. This has led to confusion as users unintentionally edit the global INI file instead of the user INI file and wonder why the settings are not working. If you need this menu item, set AllowEditGlobalSettings=true in the INI file to force showing it.
- Batch rename dialog: Supporting %h and %min placeholders for hour and minute of modification date

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.

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 (v11.0.6)

Free Full Commercial Software

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 is a compact, simple, but surprisingly feature-packed disc burning suite.

The program makes it easy to create simple data discs and audio CDs, for instance: just drag and drop your files onto the list area and you'll be burning the finished disc in a couple of clicks.

That's just the start, though. Burning Studio 2013 can also create data discs with customised, interactive multi-page menus, perfect if you'd like a more professional way to share and present the disc contents.

A built-in backup tool allows you to create backups which may be encrypted, compressed, and span several CDs, DVDs and Blu-rays.

And there are modules to create VCD or SVCD video projects; burn video DVDs or Blu-ray discs from prepared folders; create, browse or burn disc images (ISO, CUE/ BIN and Ashdisc formats are supported); copy discs, erase them, design and print disc covers, labels and booklets, and more.

The focus throughout is on ease of use, though, and so Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 remains very straightforward, whatever you're doing. Most disc projects are created via the same simple interface, and for the most part all you have to do is drag and drop the necessary files. But experts will find more advanced options are only a click away, and if you need to then you can set ISO and UDF version, enable Joliet, make a disc bootable and more.

Note the download here will take you to the Downloadcrew Software Store where you can download Burning Studio 2013.
