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).

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
