Grabilla
Capture and share desktop images and videos

Grabilla is a cross-platform tool (Windows, Mac, Android) for taking screen captures, recording desktop activity to animated GIFs or videos (with audio), annotating and sharing the results.

Launch the program on Windows and you're able to define a freehand rectangle to capture. A zoomed view shows the area around the mouse cursor, and its X and Y coordinates are also displayed, handy if you need precise positioning. Video, animated GIF, active window and full screen captures are also just a click away.

Once you've completed your capture, a simple editor displays various annotation tools: line, rectangle, arrow, text, and "redaction", a filled rectangle to obscure confidential data (names, addresses, account numbers, anything you don't want others to see).

The finished file may be saved locally, but Grabilla can also upload the capture to its own private server. There you're able to annotate it further, get links to share it, embed the screenshot or post it in forums, and there's even a one-click option to create a short URL and QR code.

Explore further and you'll find even more options. A web capture bookmarklet enables you to save web pages from Chrome or Firefox. Grabilla can be used to share other files, not just captures, within a fairly strict size limit (20MB, 300MB for videos). A History page keeps track of what you're doing, too, although to access this from anywhere you must sign in with a Facebook, Google+, Twitter, Yahoo or LinkedIn account. (If that doesn't appeal, no problem - most of the site's features work just fine as an anonymous user.)

Version 1.25 changes:

* Fixed login with #Facebook and Google.
* Fixed animated #GIF occasional crash.
* Qt libs updated to 5.5.1 version, improves Windows 10 stability.
* Minor fixes for stability.

Verdict:

Grabilla's interface has some quirks, and video recording didn't work at all on one test PC. The plus points win out, though - configurability, online annotations, capture sharing features, cross-platform - and on balance the program gets a qualified thumbs up from us.

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.
