IMGDissolver 0.50 alpha
A versatile cross-platform slideshow creator

IMGDissolver is a Java application which can transform photos, videos and even PowerPoint presentations (ppt, anyway) into a professional video slideshow, with custom transitions, captions and a soundtrack.

File format support is no more than average (JPG, GIF, PNG, BMP, AVI, MPG, MP4, OGG, OGV, MOV, PPT), but once you've imported your source files then the fun begins. Choose an image and you can rotate it, tweak brightness and contrast, adjust colours, add a caption or apply various effects (Grey Scale, Sepia, Sharpen, Red Eye Reduction, more).

IMGDissolver offers 15 transitions, including scrolls, stripes, wipes and a dissolve. There's nothing too surprising, but again they're very configurable, with you able to set transition and image duration, background colour, and one of 6 optional filters (Rain Drops, Old Movie and so on).

Adding a soundtrack can be as simple as choosing an MP3 file, but there are also options to merge or concatenate several tracks, or record a narration. Simple video tools allow you to perform basic edits, grab frames or extract the soundtrack for use elsewhere.

A Preview option means you can check how your slideshow is progressing with a click. And when you're happy, there are options to export the results as a video (FLV, AVI, MPG) or a DVD (an ISO with a simple DVD slideshow; no menu, just the pictures and soundtrack).

IMGDissolver's use of Java means performance isn't as good as you'd expect from a native Windows application, and its interface can be a little clumsy. We had problems exporting video files on one test system, too, although it worked fine on another, and DVD exports were successful everywhere.

The program is still flagged as an alpha version, though, so problems are to be expected. And even at this stage, IMGDissolver is an interesting program, very configurable and with a good range of slideshow building features.


As you'd expect from an alpha version, it's not always reliable, but IMGDissolver has plenty of interesting features and can already generate some quality slideshows.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.16.11

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

What's new in 2.16.11?

 - Due to a bug in iOS 10, your notification sounds may not properly play until you restart your iPhone (press and hold the power and home buttons for 10 seconds).
- In groups, you can now mention specific people to get their attention by typing the @ symbol and choosing someone from the picker. 
- When forwarding messages, you can now send to multiple chats at once 
- Ask Siri to send WhatsApp messages or place WhatsApp calls (iOS 10+) 
- Answer WhatsApp calls right from your lock screen, just like a standard phone call (iOS 10+) 
- A new Widget lets you quickly jump to a recent chat or see which chats have unread messages (iOS 10+)
