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.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.12.1

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.

Version 2.12.1 brings:
 - WhatsApp Calling: Call your friends and family using WhatsApp for free, even if they’re in another country. WhatsApp calls use your phone’s Internet connection rather than your cellular plan’s voice minutes. Data charges may apply.
