DiffView
Display recent changes to your files and Registry

DiffView is a very small portable tool which can scan your system to detect and display recent changes to your system files or Registry.

File and Registry trees make it easy to choose exactly what you'd like to check: your User folders, say, or the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System keys.

And you can choose how recent any changes should be, too. Enter "5" in the "Diff time" box, say, and the program will only look for items which have been created or modified in the last 5 minutes.

With the configuration done, all you have to do is click "Scan files" or "Scan reg", depending what you're doing, and wait for the results. This can take a while if you're scanning the entire Registry - so you might want to tag an extra 5 minutes onto your "Diff time" figure to make up for that - but be patient, it will finish eventually.

And once the process is complete, DiffView displays a tree view report of your system, instantly highlighting any recent changes in the areas you've specified.

Verdict:

DiffView can be a useful tool for highlighting what's been happening recently on your PC, but it's not always reliable - we found it repeatedly crashed on one test 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.
