EnhanceMy8 Free 2.0
A simple Windows 8 maintenance/ tweaking tool

EnhanceMy8 Free provides a collection of tools to tweak and maintain your Windows 8 systems.

The suite includes modules to clean your Registry, disable or remove unwanted Windows startup programs, and list running processes and services. There are some basic Windows tweaks (startup, shutdown, visual effects, taskbar, desktop and more). A simple "System Info" page displays a few details on your PC's hardware and software, while the "System Tools" section provides one-click access to a host of Windows utilities (Device Manager, Registry Editor, Support Diagnostic Tool, WMI, Windows Script Host Settings, and more).

Most of these modules are short on features. "System Information" displays your Windows version and registered user, but doesn't give you the product key. The "Startup Items" section does little more than the Windows 8 task manager, and "Processes" and "Services" are similarly limited: they can verify digital signatures, but otherwise you're again better off using the standard Windows tools.

It's all a little underpowered, then, but that's in part because most of the functions are reserved for the commercial EnhanceMy8 Pro (yours for $39.95). This adds tools to clean and defragment your hard drive; apply performance, security and network tweaks; optimise your Windows services, and customise your context menus, system icons and folders.

Even this is unlikely to be enough for experienced PC users; EnhanceMy8 just isn't that powerful, and you'll get much better results by equipping your system with the best-of-breed freeware. But if you're a relative PC novice - or just looking for a simple Registry cleaner with a few extras - then EnhanceMy8 Free is at least simple to use, and adware-free, so might be worth a brief look.

Verdict:

It's easy to use, but EnhanceMy8 Free 2.0 is also distinctly short on features and functionality. For PC tweaking novices only.

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.
