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.

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.
