Photoimp 2.2
A stylish and very capable photo manager

Photoimp is a simple but well-designed photo manager with some surprising features.

The program has a clean, uncluttered interface, with a single toolbar containing just a few buttons. And that's fine, as it gives you the maximum amount of space for your image browsing: just click a folder and scroll through its thumbnails.

While this may sound basic, there's real attention to detail here. Photoimp can automatically import images from cameras or memory cards. There's support for viewing a wide range of formats, including PSD and various RAW formats (Canon, Nikon, Sony, Pentax, Olympus, Panasonic, Leica). And you can resize the thumbnails, rotate or delete images in a click or two.

An "Export" module can convert, resize and/ or add a simple "lines" watermark to your selected images.

A built-in editor can automatically enhance an image or set the best white balance, while providing manual control over gamma, brightness, contrast, luminance, saturation, temperature, tint or sharpness.

You're also able to rotate images, colorize them, convert them to black and white or sepia, view any EXIF tags, or apply lines, text or image-based watermarks. The latter delivered much more than we expected, too: add a text watermark and you can set its position, font, size, style, colour, opacity, blur and blending mode. Even the optional shadow can be tweaked via six individual settings.

Verdict:

Sure, it's not Photoshop Lightroom, but Photoimp isn't another feeble me-too image viewer, either. Strong file format support, a capable editor and time-saving batch processing tools mean it's one of the best free photo managers around.

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
