VarieDrop 1.3.1.0
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.

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.

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.
