DeskIntegrator 1.0.0.3
Launch programs from the desktop right-click menu

DeskIntegrator is a small tool which helps you to launch programs directly from your desktop right-click menu.

You can already place shortcuts on your desktop, of course, or pin them to the taskbar. But if you like to keep your desktop uncluttered then that might not be so appealing. So as an alternative, DeskIntegrator can add one or two of your most frequently-launched programs to the desktop context menu. And in future, launching them will be as easy as right-clicking the desktop and choosing whatever application you need.

The program is portable and straightforward to use. Launch it, enter the name of your application in the Title box, and the location of its executable in "Path". You can optionally choose where it should appear in the menu (top, middle or bottom), as well as adding a custom icon. But otherwise, just click Add/Modify and the item will be added immediately - right-click an empty part of the desktop to see it.

Changed your mind? Click the "Remove Menu" tab and you're able to delete any of your menu customisations. You can also remove the standard Windows entries ("Screen resolution", "Gadgets" and "Personalize" in Windows 7) and anything added by third-party applications, making DeskIntegrator also useful as a way to clean the context menu. Be careful, though - there's no "are you sure?" check, and if you delete a menu entry by mistake, DeskIntegrator has no way to bring it back.

Verdict:

An easy way to launch 3 or 4 favourite applications, without tying up valuable desktop or taskbar space

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.
