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.

Unreal Engine 4.8

Free Full Commercial Software

Unreal Engine is Epic Games' game engine, a powerful suite of tools for developing anything from basic 2D games to professional RPGs, first person shooters and whatever else you like.

Wide standards support - DirectX, OpenGL, JavaScript/ WebGL - means your projects can be targeted to almost any platform: consoles, iOS, Android, Windows, OS X, Linux, HTML5 browsers and more.

There's a vast amount to learn, of course, and that's even before you start building your game. But there's plenty of documentation, tutorials, demos and sample projects to point you in the right direction.

The package is now entirely free, too - no annoying limitations, nag screens or anything else. Epic now only requires that you pay a 5% royalty after the first $3,000 of revenue per product per quarter. And even then, you "pay no royalty for film projects, contracting and consulting projects such as architecture, simulation and visualization."

8.48 brings:
    - Optimized grass rendering and procedural foliage system preview
    - Plugins available in Marketplace
    - Improved accuracy for motion blur
    - New Tone Mapper
    - Support for all the latest VR hardware including Oculus Rift, Samsung Gear VR, Steam VR and HTC Vive, Leap Motion, and Sony's Project Morpheus for PlayStation 4
    - "Scrubbable" network replays with rewind support and live time scrubbing
    - Visualize the memory footprint of game assets in an interactive tree map UI
