Xlideit
A simple but well-designed image viewer

Xlideit is a well-designed and easy-to-use image viewer.

The program opens with a full screen view of your Pictures folder. There's a thumbnail bar at the bottom of the screen, small toolbars top left and to the right, but most of the screen is taken up by the first image. (If you prefer a more conventional view then you can run Xlideit in a window, maybe add a folder pane, all in a click or two.)

The core controls are natural and intuitive. Click a thumbnail and that image is displayed; you can pan around an image by clicking and dragging; spinning the mouse wheel zooms in and out; double-clicking an image displays it full screen, then toggles to a normal view; and when you're finished, pressing Esc closes down.

Xlideit provides many ways to navigate through your images. You can click a thumbnail, click "next page/ last page" buttons at either side of the thumbnail bar, click and drag on a scroll bar, press the left/ right arrow keys, Home/ End, PgUp/ PgDn. There's even a touch-like feature, where dragging an image to the far left or right acts like a swipe and moves you backwards or forwards. And so, no matter how you normally like to browse your images, you'll probably feel comfortable with Xlideit immediately.

You're not restricting to viewing images, and Xlideit has a few editing tools: crop, flip, resize and rotate, as well as tweaks for brightness, contrast, saturation, hue and gamma. You're able to convert images between a few formats, too (JPG, PNG, BMP, GIF, TIF), view and clear their tags, and all these actions may be applied to multiple files in a single action.

Version 1.0.150518 (Version History): 
    - Added a button to find duplicates in filter images text box
    - Corrected sorting of images that contain numbers in their nameButtons can be moved between the toolbar and the sidebar

Verdict:

Xlideit doesn't try to offer big headline features. There's no RAW image support, for example. No filters, no automatic image corrections. The core image viewer is excellent, though, intuitive and easy to use, and we'll be very interested to see how the program develops in future.

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
    - "Scrubbable" network replays with rewind support and live time scrubbing
    - Visualize the memory footprint of game assets in an interactive tree map UI
