VarieDrop
Resize and convert images by dragging and dropping

VarieDrop is an interesting tool which makes it easier to resize multiple images in a single operation.

The program works by allowing you to define up to four "drag and drop areas", each of which has its own output settings. These include format (BMP, PNG, JPEG, GIF, TIFF), JPEG quality, the target dimensions for resizing, a string which you'd like to append to the file name (_800x600, say), and an output folder. Once you've configured the program to suit your needs, just select your target images, drag and drop them onto that area, and they'll be converted and resized accordingly.

There's also a fifth "drag and drop area" which can optionally combine the results of the others. If you've set up the main areas to create 320x200, 640x480, 800x600 and 1024x768 images, for example, you might also have this fifth area generate all four sizes in a single drag and drop.

VarieDrop doesn't have the power of the leading batch processing tools. You can't rotate your images, add watermarks, apply special effects or do anything else particularly advanced. The ability to resize or convert images by dragging and dropping is a significant plus, though, and if your batch processing needs are simple then the program could be worth a look.

Version 1.4.0.0 brings (Changelog):
    - Change the main window to the size variable window.
    - Change how to specify the reduction. (Width / height / length side / specify the short side / fixed size)
to add the selected option of reduction method. (Average pixel / bicubic / nearest use the functions of the neighbor / OS)
    - Add the edge enhancement options and font setting function.
    - Area setting button, options dialog change, other modifications, etc..

Verdict:

It's a little short on image processing power, but VarieDrop's drag-and-drop interface does make it very easy to batch resize and convert your photos.

Unreal Engine 4.8

Free Full Commercial Software

Unreal Engine is Epic Games' game engine, a powerful suite of tools for developing anything from basic 2D games to professional RPGs, first person shooters and whatever else you like.

Wide standards support - DirectX, OpenGL, JavaScript/ WebGL - means your projects can be targeted to almost any platform: consoles, iOS, Android, Windows, OS X, Linux, HTML5 browsers and more.

There's a vast amount to learn, of course, and that's even before you start building your game. But there's plenty of documentation, tutorials, demos and sample projects to point you in the right direction.

The package is now entirely free, too - no annoying limitations, nag screens or anything else. Epic now only requires that you pay a 5% royalty after the first $3,000 of revenue per product per quarter. And even then, you "pay no royalty for film projects, contracting and consulting projects such as architecture, simulation and visualization."

8.48 brings:
    - Optimized grass rendering and procedural foliage system preview
    - Plugins available in Marketplace
    - Improved accuracy for motion blur
    - New Tone Mapper
    - Support for all the latest VR hardware including Oculus Rift, Samsung Gear VR, Steam VR and HTC Vive, Leap Motion, and Sony's Project Morpheus for PlayStation 4
    - "Scrubbable" network replays with rewind support and live time scrubbing
    - Visualize the memory footprint of game assets in an interactive tree map UI
