Hornil StylePix 1.14.4.0
A small but powerful image editor

StylePix is a portable but powerful image editor, easy to use yet also packed with features.

Just launch the program and its capabilities are immediately obvious. There are bulky toolbars top and left, a thumbnail browser, multiple panels and some very lengthy menus, and browsing these reveals extra capabilities everywhere you look (the Filter menu has 13 entries, for instance, and clicking the Color option alone provides another 18).

This doesn't mean StylePix is complex, though. The interface is generally well designed, and in our experience the program's extra functionality doesn't get in your way. If you're in a hurry then you can carry out all the usual basic edits - crop, resize, rotate, colour tweaks, brightness and contrast correction, text and annotation options - just as quickly as with anything else.

Life gets more interesting when you move beyond the basics, though, because StylePix just has so much to offer. So if you just want to draw a line on a photo, say, then you could simply click the Line button and drag your mouse across the image. But you can also customise this by choosing the line type (straight or curve), the colour (solids, presets, gradients and more), width, alpha blend, blending mode and a whole lot more.

Similarly, if you need to add a caption to an image then you could just select the Text tool, click on the photo and start typing. But if you need more, then you can choose your preferred typeface, its size, width, kerning or tracking, paragraph alignment and so on. Once you've defined your caption, then it's added as a vector, which means you're able to reposition and resize it to suit your needs. And if you want to edit that caption later, it's not a problem - click it, select whatever you want to change - right down to individual characters - and you can resize that, change colour or generally tweak whatever you like.

It's much the same story elsewhere (selection types include auto selection, color range, rectangular region, circular region, lasso region, polygonal region, layer selection, channel selection and quick mask, for instance), and StylePix also includes plenty of features to help keep this manageable. The Batch Processing option, for instance, combines multiple actions to speed up operations, so for example you can add multiple layers (including watermarks) to a set of images in a single operation.

Version 1.14.4.0 changes:
  •Fixed the problem caused by EXIF errors.
  •Added a Facebook upload function to the File menu.
  •Added nine filters.
  •Improved filter's icon to present how to apply the selected filter on current layer.
  •Fixed a simple mistake that the Options text did not localization in Slideshow's context menu.

Verdict:

An excellent image editor, StylePix comes with a stack of powerful features, yet remains generally very easy to use

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.
