True Burner
True Burner is a rather frills-free tool for burning data discs.

If you’re looking for a simple, fuss-free way of burning discs then Windows’ own tools are usually sufficient for the task. However, they can be a little confusing – particularly with earlier versions of Windows – so there’s always room for a decent third-party tool that handles data burning with aplomb.

Glorylogic’s True Burner offers rather basic functionality compared to other tools, but that is part of its charm. Insert your blank disc (CD, DVD or Blu-ray) and fire up the program. Start by tweaking its settings: select your drive and target burning speed, make decisions about whether you’re continuing a multi-session disc or creating a single, finalised disc, and give your disc a title (choose carefully, as there’s no way to edit this without creating a new disc). Finally, choose a type – the standard UDF option is already pre-selected – and click OK.

From here it’s a case of building your data disc by selecting files and folders to include from other parts of your system. Files can be added via dialogue box, selected via an internal file manager, or dragged on to the True Burner window. From here you can rename files before they’re burned without affecting the original.

Once your disc is ready, click the Burn button and leave True Burner to its own devices. Sadly it’s all a little basic, and there are no confirmation dialogs so if you accidentally click the wrong button you can set off the burning process with no recourse to cancel before it creates the first track. Neither can you save your disk layouts, meaning if you quit the program you’ll have to start again from scratch.

What's new in v4.1 (see the release notes for more)?

- Updated compilation selection dialog.
- Disc burning engine has been updated.
- Improved file loading and processing.
- Fixed bug with incorrect disc detection.
- Minor fixes and improvements.

Verdict:

Another fuss-free tool from Glorylogic, but perhaps a little too simplistic for most people’s tastes.

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.
