Easily extract the JPEGs from just about any file

DeJPEG is a tool which can extract the JPEGs from any file, and save them as separate images.

You might have a PDF or DOCX file, say, with a lot of embedded JPEGs. Manually extracting them would be time-consuming, even if you had the right software - and that's where deJPEG comes in. Just point it at your PDF, click "Analyse file", and the program will examine the source file, saving any JPEGs it finds in the same folder.

Our first problem with this approach is it's a little too simple. You can't define an output folder, for instance - any JPEGs are automatically saved to the same folder as the source file. And you can't specify any pattern for the output file names. They're always "image1.jpg", "image2.jpg", "image3.jpg" and so on.

Another complication is that the files aren't always what you'd expect; we found some were distorted in some ways, others didn't appear to be regular JPEGs at all.

Still, one significant plus for the program is it doesn't care about the source file format. It doesn't matter if you give it a Word document, a spreadsheet, a database or anything else. Whatever the file type, deJPEG will just scan through its contents, extracting anything which looks like a JPEG.

And while the program regularly failed to deliver in our tests, on many other occasions it worked perfectly. So if you ever need to extract images from a file or document, we'd grab a copy anyway - one day it just might prove very useful.

Verdict:

DeJPEG is short on options, and failed to deliver in some of our tests. Most of the time it worked very well, though, and on balance it's certainly worth a try

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.
