Printworks
All the key functionality you need is at hand with Printworks.

Is the world crying out for another desktop publishing tool for the home market? Belight clearly thinks so, and Printworks is its contribution to the crowded marketplace. This clearly isn’t a tool for design professionals, but home and small business users may get some use of it.

The app comes packed with templates and examples to show off its design capabilities, and is geared towards producing everything from brochures, flyers and business cards to CD labels and covers, newsletters and greetings cards.

The user interface is simple enough to use – split into three panes, your document sits in the middle, while on the left you can switch between clipart, your iPhoto library and shapes. The right-hand Inspector pane features page setup, geometry, "appearance" and text formatting sections.

A toolbar provides buttons for quickly inserting barcodes, tables and even a calendar, plus a handy paragraph style switcher and clickable preview button for viewing your document as it should appear when printed. There are also buttons for creating headings as well as accessing the usual line, box and select tools.

Everything’s simple and accessible to use, and the tools work as you’d expect them too. It’s all very intuitive and for those looking for a fuss-free, but striking design tool, Printworks is definitely worth checking out.

Printworks 1.2 adds 80 new templates and brings various other improvements.

Verdict:

A simple to use DTP tool with intuitive and pleasant user interface and all the core functionality you need.

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.
