TightVNC Portable Edition
A portable version of TightVNC, a bandwidth-efficient way of viewing and interacting with the desktop of one computer on another.

VNC - virtual network computing - is a method of access the desktop of one computer on another computer using a network connection. While the original VNC worked well over local networks, the amount of data to be transferred could seriously impact performance over slower connections. This even applies to current fast ADSL and cable connections because of the limited uplink speed form the computer you are accessing. TightVNC takes the standard VNC protocols and adds compression for faster use over slower networks.

Having remote access to another computer has several uses such accessing your home computer from work (ask permission before trying the other way round), remote administration or fault fixing. TightVNC works with standard VNC too, it enables the compression of the computer it is talking to only uses standard VNC, and you can use that slower connection to install TightVNC on the emote computer before reconnecting if you wish. VNC is a completely open and free protocol, so it is implemented on all popular operating systems, and the same is true of TightVNC. When you cannot install TightVNC to the computer you are using, this portable version is just what you need. Once installed to a USB stick, it runs entirely from that stick and saves its settings and history back to the stick, meaning you can run it on any Windows computer without administrator rights.

Verdict:

A portable version of the fastest and most flexible option for remote access to a desktop.

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.
