Polarr Photo Editor
A powerful photo editor for Chrome

Polarr Photo Editor is a powerful free image editor for Chrome.

Once installed, hovering your mouse over an image displays a Polarr icon, and clicking this opens the picture in the editor.

You can also import photos from URLs, or your own computer, with limited support for some RAW formats (it opens their high-def JPEG only).

A left-hand toolbar displays previews of your image using various filters - "Focal", "Warmth", "Cinematic" and so on - and clicking any of these applies the settings immediately.

Not quite right? No problem, because a right-hand toolbar displays a host of fine-tuning options, with tweaks for temperature, tint, exposure, gamma, contrast, highlights, shadows, whites, blacks, clarity, vibrance, saturation, HSL, sharpness, denoising, grain, vignette, chromatic shift.

You even get tone curve adjustments, with a histogram for guidance.

There are options to use radial or graduated filters, and you're able to combine multiple filters to deliver the effect you need.

This can get complex, but fortunately you're able to save your current settings as a custom filter for speedy reuse later.

You also get crop, rotate, and a handy straighten tool, amongst other useful options, and finished images may be saved locally or exported to Facebook, Dropbox, Flickr, Google Drive, Picasa, Box and Evernote.

Polarr can also be used from any browser at its website, and the company offers commercial apps for Android, Windows 10, iOS and Blackberry.

Update in 4.5.0: Introducing text editing tools and account based login system.


An excellent photo editor which crams in a vast amount of image-tweaking options, while remaining generally very easy to use.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.18.91

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 2.18.91

- When receiving photos or GIFs, you can 3D Touch or swipe left on the notification and tap "View" to preview the media from within the notification (iOS 10+).
- You can now search on the Status tab to quickly find status updates.
