PhotoFiltre Portable
PhotoFiltre is a powerful, free image editor

Take a look at PhotoFiltre and the number of buttons to be found in the various toolbars can be a little overwhelming to start with. The somewhat cluttered nature may be off-putting initially, but if you stick with the app you will find that it is pleasingly powerful and is a cut above the usual freeware image editors that clutter the market. In terms of raw power and features, this is a tool that is on a par with the GIMP, but it is more accessible.

The dazzling array of buttons may seem like clutter to start with, but it does mean that there are a large number of options available to you immediately without the need to navigate through endless menus. There is support for a wide range of image formats and the ability to batch process files is very useful.

A great feature of PhotoFiltre is its speed. Many image editors are large, unwieldy beasts that can take an age to load, but this is certainly not the case here. Effects, filters and transformations are also applied to images quickly. Whether you are looking to optimize your images for use on the web, or want to perform more creative edits, everything you need can be found in the app.

One of the problems with previous versions of the app was the lack of support for layers, but this is something that has been addressed in version 7. In addition to this, there is now also support for transparencies which opens up opportunities that were not previously available. This may not be the most attractive of programs, but if you can turn a blind eye to the way it looks, you have a powerful tool on your hands.

Note that this is the portable version of PhotoFiltre.

Verdict:

An aesthetically challenged app that deserves recognition for the power it brings free of charge.

Windows 10 October 2018 Update (build 1809)

Free Full Commercial Software

This is the latest version of Windows October 2018 Update. it's a media creation tool that can be used to upgrade an existing installation of Windows or create installation media for another PC. Just make your choice after launching the tool and it'll do the rest.

What was new in Windows 10, when it was released? The OS brought back the Start Menu, though with a Windows 8 twist: live tiles keep you up-to-date with the latest news while also providing an easy way to launch apps. (Don't worry if you prefer the Start Screen, it's still there and you can boot into it if you prefer.)

Apps now work much more like regular desktop programs. They have minimise, maximise, restore and close buttons, and can be resized (to a degree) and organised however you like.

If you've still lost track of a program in the mass of open windows, a new Task Spaces feature can help. Click its taskbar button and you'll see thumbnails for everything running now, a little like OS X's Mission Control - just click something to switch to it.

Better still, Task Spaces also supports virtual desktops. Add extra desktops as required and it'll display thumbnails of each one, making it easy to identify whatever you're after and switch to it.

There's also smarter snapping, new customisation options, and even a bunch of experimental additions to the command prompt.

Fall Creators Update brings a whole host of new features for Windows 10. See the Microsoft Blog for more information.

The Windows 10 ISO here will give you build 1809 which is the October 2018 Update.
