NConvert 6.50
A batch image processor for the command line

NConvert is a command line tool for image batch processing.

The program can crop, resize and rotate images; tweak brightness, contrast and colour; apply sharpen or blur filters, add watermarks, convert images formats and more (80+ commands in total).

NConvert can work its magic on just about any file, too. The program reads more than 500 image formats, and can export to more than 70.

You will have to spend a little time learning how NConvert works, of course, but it's really not too difficult. Here's an example.

nconvert -out gif pic1.jpg

You can probably guess that this takes the file pic1.jpg and saves it in the GIF format.

Let's get more advanced.

nconvert -out gif -dither -colors 256 *.jpeg

Now we're converting a set of JPEG files to GIF, and defining how the colour palette will be created.

And now try this.

nconvert -out png -resize 200% 200% *.jpeg

There's no need to spell this out: the English-like syntax makes it all very obvious.

As you can see, there's no need to be put off by NConvert's command line origins. There is some work to be done in understanding its features, but you'll figure it out quickly enough, and there's more than enough batch processing power here to justify your efforts.
 

Verdict:

An extremely powerful batch image processing tool which is also fairly easy to use (by command line standards, anyway).

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.
