Funny Mask 1.0
Add clipart-type masks to any on-screen faces

Funny Mask is a fun application which tries to detect faces on the screen, then customises them with clipart-type masks (hats, glasses, wigs, more).

To use the program, launch it and click "Draw On Screen". Funny Mask uses OpenCV (the Open Source Computer Vision Library) to look for faces, and adds one of twelve silly customisations to anything it finds.

By default the program chooses a mask at random. If you have a preference, click the arrow to the right of "Draw On Screen" and select that option from the list.

If you want to save the results then of course you could press PrtSc, and paste the image into a graphics program. But it might be easier to just press Capture, which grabs the full screen and saves it as FunnyMask.png in the Funny Mask folder. (Unfortunately it always uses this file name, so clicking Capture again will overwrite the previous image.)

Funny Mask didn't always work for us. It had problems recognising faces which were cropped too tightly, for instance. And if a face is tilted then the mask won't always be in the right place.

The program got it right enough times to be worth trying, though. It's fun and easy to use, great as a way for kids to mess around on the PC. And there's a bonus extra for the more experienced: the bundled 12 masks are just PNGs with a transparent background, so it's easy to customise them or create more.

Verdict:

Kids should have fun with this, for a minute or two anyway (you might need to create extra masks to hold their attention for any longer).

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.
