SpeedyPainter 3.1.2
A lightweight and portable painting application

SpeedyPainter is a lightweight and easy-to-use painting tool.

The program is portable, and tiny (3.4MB unpacked), so it's no surprise that the interface is very basic. There are no menus here, for instance. No toolbars. Just a few buttons and sliders scattered around the drawing area.

Get started, though, and you'll find SpeedyPainter offers more features than you might expect. Wacom tablet support means you can vary stroke size and opacity with your pen pressure, for example. A versatile colour picker can pop up at your cursor position for quick and easy access. There are rotate, flip and crop tools, even a perspective grid overlay to help you produce more realistic images.

Most of these tools have plenty of functionality, too. So once you've drawn a crop area, you can apply it, rotate it, or pan the image underneath it to select the right area. But this is rarely, if ever confusing, because the program always displays simple prompts top-left of the screen to explain your various options. And a Help screen with reminders of the various hotkeys is only ever a click away.

And once your masterpiece is complete, SpeedyPainter won't just save the image. It also captures each stroke as you work, and can export the results as an AVI file (480p, 720p, 1080p), a great way to see how the picture was produced. Don't take our word for it: browse the SpeedyPainter gallery and see for yourself.

Verdict:

It may be small, but SpeedyPainter has plenty to offer both the novice and the experienced artist

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.
