Hornil Photo Resizer 1.1.1.1
Resize, rename, rotate and process a folder of photos

Hornil Photo Resizer is a powerful tool for processing an entire folder of photos at once.

Despite its name, the program isn't just about resizing images. It can also rotate and flip them, apply various filters (auto level/ contrast, sharpen, more), add an image watermark, and batch rename them according to various rules.

The core resizing function is reasonably configurable. As well as setting an image to a fixed resolution ("640 x 480", for example), you can also adjust the height alone, the width alone, the longer or shorter lengths.

The batch renaming function is useful, too. In a click or two you can take the source file name and customise it with a date (in your choice of format), a serial number, extra text or whatever you like.

Some of the other tools are rather more basic. Most of the filters have no options, so you can add a "Sharpen" effect, but there's no way to customise how it works. We would have appreciated a text watermark option, too.

The interface has some issues. Although you're able to carry out multiple actions on an image - resize, rotate and sharpen, maybe - these are all configured in separate panes, and there's no single place where you can view everything you've asked the program to do.

The lack of documentation is another problem. As we write, clicking Help > Quick Start Guide takes you to the guide for a different program, while Help > Online Manual just displays an error message.

Still, Hornil Photo Resizer does have some promise. You can already use it to quickly rename and resize a batch of photos. There are useful configuration options on hand. The program is free, with no adware or other hassles, and with a little more development it's going to be a very capable batch photo processing tool.

Version 1.1.1.1 brings:
        •Fixed bugs that the program moved outside of the monitor when you resize it at the edge of the window.
        •Now supports French.

Verdict:

Hornil Photo Resizer has some interface irritations and didn't always work as we expected. There are already some useful batch processing features here, though - particularly when resizing and renaming photos - and the program has some promise for the future.

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.
