Ashampoo Photo Commander 10.2
Organise, tag, fix and edit your photos from the comfort of a single program

Digital cameras have revolutionised photography, but the downside is that most hard drives are now cluttered up with thousands of photos, and keeping track of them all can be a nightmare. Add to that the fact that many imperfect photos can be improved with the right software and you’re left wondering how to manage it all.

In the past you’d have one program for managing your photos, and another for editing them. These days, though, an increasing number of programs – Ashampoo Photo Commander among them – aim to provide a one-stop shop for organising and fixing all of the images on your computer.

The program splits its feature set into five sections: Common, Quick-Fix, Edit, Create and Organize. All the photo management tools are found under Organize, including batch processing and renaming, duplicate finder and tools for rotating and optimising JPEG files without affecting the quality. Unlike tools like Windows Live Photo Gallery and Picasa, the program doesn’t attempt to catalogue all your pictures; instead, you select photos from your hard drive, or create albums into which you drag and drop a group of photos for easy access in future.

The Quick Fix section enables you to easily and swiftly correct problems like lighting with a single click. It also contains a number of filters, effects and other quick edits. Switch to the Edit tab for more extensive editing controls, or select Create to generate slideshows, collages, calendars, contact sheets and more.

Ashampoo Photo Commander 10.2 brings these features/additions:

- NEW! Dark-Skin
- NEW! Support for multicore processors
- NEW! Accelerated workflow with multi-core computers
- Faster program startup and less memory consumption
- Photo import from digital cameras and improved support for RAW formats
- Upload photos or complete photo albums to Facebook/YouTube/Picasa/etc.
- Optimized and extended 1-click photo optimization
- New photo tools, e.g. Repair Tool or Focus Effect Tool
- Improved image adjustment with a new gradation curve tool, histogram and improved controls
- Improved support for color profiles in JPG files and support for the Google image format WebP

Verdict:

Ashampoo Photo Commander may seem overpriced compared to free software like Google Picasa, but it does at least offer plenty of tools and features missing from the freebies.

Unreal Engine 4.7.2.0

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."
