RealWorld Photos 2013.1
Retouch your JPEGs with the minimum loss in quality

RealWorld Photos 2013.1 is a capable and easy-to-use photo editor which is optimised for web publishers.

The program has many batch processing tools. Select a group of images or folders and you can have it resize them, correct colour and contrast, apply effects, add watermarks and more.

Better still, areas not touched by a particular operation won't be re-encoded. Add a caption to the bottom of an image, say, and only that area will be altered, keeping any loss of quality to an absolute minimum.

The program is unusually convenient to use, as it's available in a portable version, and runs on anything from Windows 2000 upwards.

Version 2013.1 adds many enhancements, too:

•Shape tool for creating shapes and selections from Bezier arcs.
•Image brush now respects active color if the pattern is monochrome.
•Polygon tool with configurable start shape.
•Out-of-canvas content supported.
•Effects automatically remember up to 5 last configurations and allow you to return to them or to reset values to defaults.
•Color picker and fill style selector were merged and simplified.
•Redesigned tool configuration panels.
•Two-column window layout with Layers panel on the left side and a new Media panel on the right side.
•More types of downloadable media packs and easier application of downloaded styles.
•Improved .psd import - vector masks are imported as vector layers.
•...and many minor improvements.

Verdict:

RealWorld Photos is a powerful tool, but can be complex to use, and it's arguably a little expensive. Even purchasing a $29 licence doesn't allow you to use the product commercially (you'll need to spend $59 for that).

WhatsApp Messenger 2.17.51

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

What's New in Version 2.17.51

• When typing text in a chat, you can tap and hold to select the text and easily bold, strikethroughor italacize it.
