WordPerfect Office X4 - Standard Edition
A full-featured productivity suite

Corel's alternative to Microsoft Office is a comprehensive productivity suite that comes packed with features to help simplify your daily tasks.

Word Perfect, for instance, is a powerful word processor with particularly strong PDF support: you can open, edit and save PDF files, even with password protection. It can read Microsoft Office files, too, including the Office 2007 OOXML and ODF formats. And if you're familiar with Word then you can customise Word Perfect to make it work in much the same way, with many of the keyboard shortcuts you know already.

Quattro Pro X4, the suite's spreadsheet, can similarly open, edit and save Microsoft Excel files. It's a perfect tool for analysing data, and the new Visual Intelligence feature, which takes live data from the web and turns it into interface charts and tables, means the program is easier than ever to use.

Presentations X4 is a little more basic, but still provides everything you need to build a simple slideshow, complete with images, audio and video. Of course it's also file-compatible with PowerPoint, and you can alternatively publish projects to HTML, PDF or Flash.

You also get Mail, a simplified version of Outlook that will still cater for most of your email, scheduling and contact management needs. Lightning is a tool for taking quick notes, screen grabs and more, than collaborating with others online. And other bundled extras include an electronic copy of the Pocket Oxford English Dictionary and the WordPerfect XML Project Designer, 900 TrueType fonts and 8,000 new clipart images.

Verdict:

Strong PDF support and good data visualisation tools help make WordPerfect Office X4 a worthy alternative to Microsoft Office

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.
