jPDF Tweak 1.1
A collection of useful PDF tools

jPDF Tweak is a Java Swing application which provides a host of ways to manipulate PDF files.

You can split or combine documents, for instance. There are crop, rotate and scaling options. Or you can apply text or image watermarks.

A "Page Number" can adjust the page numbers which appear in your PDF reader, very useful when they don't match the numbers on the document itself.

Elsewhere, there are tools to add bookmarks and attachments. An "Interaction" module can turn documents into a slideshow, where pages flip automatically with your preferred transition effect. And you can both encrypt and decrypt a document, and set or deny all the usual permissions (can't print, can't copy and so on).

There are assorted other tools to optimise and compress PDFs, set their metadata, even export your source PDF as a multipage TIFF.

The interface for all this is, well, basic. There are no toolbars here, no menus, icons or graphics, barely even any colour. You just have to browse eleven tabs, checking boxes, filling tables and generally choosing whatever options you need.

JPDF Tweak isn't particularly difficult to use, though, and with some help from the online manual you'll soon figure out how it all works.

Verdict:

Don't be put off by the Windows 95-style interface, jPDF Tweak has a lengthy list of valuable PDF management features and there's sure to be something here you can use.

Spektrel Art 1.0.0

Free Full Commercial Software

Spektrel Art is a stand-alone program and Photoshop plugin which transforms digital photos into "magical art that glimmers and gleams with intersecting lines of tapered light".

What does that mean? Essentially it applies a configurable mix of effects, enhancing edges, smoothing backgrounds and emphasizing colours. Take a look at the thumbnail for one example, and the official product page has more.

Spektral Art works much like any similar tool. Open an image, click one of the thumbnails to apply a particular preset, or click a few buttons and drag some sliders to fine-tune the results.

There's surprising scope for variation, too. For example, just switching from the "Light" to "Dark" theme can transform a bright and friendly image into something dark and sinister, at least in some cases (results vary depending on the source image).

Please note, the demo version doesn't allow images to be saved.

SPECIAL OFFER: as we write, the developer is offering Spektral Art for free. The offer expires August 29th. Please note that you must provide your name, address and phone number to receive your free license.
