Ashampoo Burning Studio
Quickly burn CDs, DVDs, Blu-ray discs and more

Ashampoo Burning Studio is a capable disc burning suite which also finds room for some unexpected and interesting features.

Burning regular data discs, for example, is a very simple and straightforward process. Click Burn Data > New Disc from the front-end menu, drag and drop your files onto the interface, and you can be burning your CD, DVD or Blu-ray disc in a couple of clicks.

But the program also create Autostart discs, which display interactive menus that appear when the disc is inserted. These can launch files or documents, send an email, link to a web page and more, and are a great way to properly present information to the recipient of your disc.

It's a similar story when you need to create video DVDs. Just like the competition, you're able to drag and drop in a few source videos and burn them to a PAL or NTSC video. But Burning Studio can also trim, cut or split your videos; add soundtracks to a movie; create video slideshows from your images, with custom transitions and subtitles, and more.

Elsewhere, there are tools to create or rip audio CDs, burn, create or browse disc images (ASHDISC, CUE/ BIN, ISO, IMG); run simple file backups, copy discs, edit labels and covers, and the list goes on.

What's new? Burning Studio 16 launches faster, offers a wider choice of skins and recognises more optical drives than ever before.

A new online database helps you find the covers for all your songs, and now optionally blends multiple covers into a single photo mosaic.

There's support for adding subtitles in SRT format to your video discs, while it's now possible to rip audio CDs to APE files.

M-DISC support is enhanced with optimized recognition and auto-settings.

New jump list support makes it easy to access key functions, and you're able to tweak key settings without working through submenus.

Please note, this build will by default install as a 10 day trial only, but you can extend this to 30 days if you register with Ashampoo.

Verdict:

Ashampoo Burning Studio 16 is fast and easy to use, yet still manages to include plenty of powerful features. If you're tired of the more bloated competition but don't want to compromise on functionality then Burning Studio could be the ideal choice.

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.
