PDFFill Tools 11.0
Create, convert, watermark, encrypt and process PDFs

PDFFill Tools is a useful collection of utilities for working with PDF files.

The suite allows you to scan pages directly to a PDF, for example. You can convert images or PostScript files to PDFs, and a bundled virtual printer driver creates PDFs from any printable document.

There are further tools to split and merge your files, encrypt and decrypt them, or customise them with watermarks (text and image). You're able to add headers and footers, rotate and crop your documents, edit their metadata, work with form fields, and more. The program can even be launched from buttons in Microsoft Office applications and Internet Explorer, in theory at least (when we tried it, our copy of Word crashed).

While this sounds great, there is a problem: the interface. Each of these tools is represented by a separate dialog box, with hardly any visual feedback at all. If you're adding an image watermark, say, you don't get to view the target file first; you can't point and click where you'd like your picture to be, and there's no way to preview how the finished pages will look. Instead you must choose your image, set its position in inches, and export the file before you get to find out.

Once you understand how everything works, though, this isn't a major issue. The individual tools have some useful options and settings, and generally work very well. And if you do need a more visual approach, a trial version of PDFFill's PDF Editor is included with the package. It has all the features of the tools, and more, and can be yours for a very reasonable $19.99.

Verdict:

It's more like fifteen separate utilities than a single application, but PDFFill Tools is easy to use, with plenty of power, and a must-have if you regularly work with PDFs.

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.
