PhotoWand 1.62
Fun photo enhancement app for Windows 8

PhotoWand is a handy photo enhancement app for Windows 8.

It provides simple tools to improve your photos, including a crop function, sharpen filter, and adjustments for hue, saturation, brightness and contrast.

A mixed set of filters ranges from the basic (Negative, B&W, Sepia) to the more interesting (Vignette, Lomo, Sunlight).

The effects also vary in quality. "Oil Paint" is poor, but "Rain Drop" and "Snow" are better than we expected, and the pencil and sketch effects are so good they probably justify installing the app all on their own.

Whatever filter or effect you choose can be tweaked in intensity with a slider. You're able to customise an image further with frames or clipart-like "stickers". Finished images may then be saved locally, or shared on Facebook with a click.

Annoyances include a Collage button which doesn't actually lead to a Collage function, but instead opens the Windows 8 Store at an entirely different app. There's also a mildly irritating ad which changes every 20 seconds or so, although you can now pay to have this removed (around $1).

Verdict:

A genuine useful photo-tweaking app with some great effects and a good range of tools

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.
