Camtasia for Mac
Create your own video tutorials using Camtasia for Mac

When you need to demonstrate how something is done, if you are not able to guide someone through the process in person, the next best thing is a video tutorial. Camtasia for Mac is a screen recording utility that can be used to record on-screen activity and save it as a video file.

Ideal for creating video tutorials as well as demonstrations, Camtasia can be used in a variety of ways. You may not want to capture your desktop in its entirety and it is possible to limit capture to a portion of your screen.

On the audio front you can opt to use a microphone to record voiceovers as well as recording sounds generated by your Mac. An audio cleanup tool is available to help you to eliminate any unwanted background noise that may have been captured. Longer recording sessions can be paused and resumed so you don’t need to capture everything in one sitting.

The SmartFocus features means that it is possible to focus videos in on the main part of the action - you may want to temporarily zoom in on a particular window to highlight some detail for example. With the option of using scene transitions, text and image overlays and much more, Camtasia enables you to produce professional results with ease.
 

Verdict:

An advanced, professional and efficient ways to capture desktop activity and create video tutorials.

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.
