G'MIC 1.6.0.0
An amazingly flexible image processing tool

G'MIC is an amazingly powerful image processing tool for the command line (or via GIMP, if you install the plugin). It's aimed very much at experts, but has features which can be used by just about everyone.

At its simplest, you might use the program to view a series of images (gmic pic1.jpg pic2.jpg pic3.jpg) or convert an image from one format to another (gmic ThisPicture.png Output.jpg).

G'MIC also supports an array of image filters and processing commands. You're able to mirror, crop, rotate and resize images, blur and sharpen them, remove red-eye, use various warps and deformations (fisheye, sphere, kaleidoscope, more), apply top-quality paint and drawing effects (as good as those in any image editor), create animations, and add captions, borders and drop shadows. (And that's just a tiny fraction of what's on offer.)

These effects are sometimes very easy to use. Applying a sepia-type "old photo" effect just requires the command gmic image.jpg --old_photo . But G'MIC also provides astonishing flexibility, for people who need it. You don't just have a basic "--blur", for example: you're able to select a filter type, a border setting, various blur types (angular, radial, linear, selective), a direction (x/ xy/ xyz/ y/ z) and more. And these can be combined on a single line in whatever order you like.

The results can be amazing. G'MIC isn't just another "me too" image tweaker, it's easily strong enough for professional use, and you don't have to take our word for it: just browse through Flickr's G'MIC group pool and see for yourself.

But even this is just the start. G'MIC can also work with videos, plot 2 or 3D functions, create 3D logos and models, display a filtered webcam stream, and more. It's a lengthy list, but fortunately the program has some built-in demos to show you what's possible: enter gmic --demo and prepare to be impressed.

Version 1.6.0.0 brings many new commands, filters and effects, improved stability and more. See the official Changelog.

Verdict:

G'MIC includes a huge number of top quality image effects and filters, most of which are incredibly configurable. The command line version is perfect for your own batch processing scripts, or you can install it as a GIMP plugin for easy ad-hoc use.

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 (v11.0.6)

Free Full Commercial Software

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 is a compact, simple, but surprisingly feature-packed disc burning suite.

The program makes it easy to create simple data discs and audio CDs, for instance: just drag and drop your files onto the list area and you'll be burning the finished disc in a couple of clicks.

That's just the start, though. Burning Studio 2013 can also create data discs with customised, interactive multi-page menus, perfect if you'd like a more professional way to share and present the disc contents.

A built-in backup tool allows you to create backups which may be encrypted, compressed, and span several CDs, DVDs and Blu-rays.

And there are modules to create VCD or SVCD video projects; burn video DVDs or Blu-ray discs from prepared folders; create, browse or burn disc images (ISO, CUE/ BIN and Ashdisc formats are supported); copy discs, erase them, design and print disc covers, labels and booklets, and more.

The focus throughout is on ease of use, though, and so Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 remains very straightforward, whatever you're doing. Most disc projects are created via the same simple interface, and for the most part all you have to do is drag and drop the necessary files. But experts will find more advanced options are only a click away, and if you need to then you can set ISO and UDF version, enable Joliet, make a disc bootable and more.

Note the download here will take you to the Downloadcrew Software Store where you can download Burning Studio 2013.
