Soluto
Speed up your startup times using Soluto

It is always frustrating when a computer starts to slow down, but determining which application is causing the problem can re-double frustration levels. Soluto is a community based diagnosis tools which can help to reveal the root cause of performance problems and help you to solve them.

Using low level drivers, the program is able to conduct in-depth analysis of your computer's startup process and provide detailed information about exactly how long individual startup applications are taking to load.

Rather than leaving you to randomly delete startup programs that seem to be slowing things down, Soluto enables you to make an informed decision. By using a combination of the information about how long a particular program takes to start, along with details about its purpose and what benefits and disadvantages are associated with disabling it, you can choose which programs should be allowed to run.

Being community based, the advice offered by Soluto is founded in real world experiences so you can rest assured that there will be no unexpected side effects. Although still in beta, Soluto is already a worthy tool, but shows great signs of greater things to come.

Note that this installs as a "beta" with a host of new features, including a Heal Crashes module that will examine crashes over the previous 30 days and make comments to help you solve the problem.
 

Verdict:

A fast and reliable way to analyse your computer and keep to reduce startup times.

Amazing piece of freeware! Found quite a few windows services and others which I could safely remove from my boot and saved nearly 40secs. Now my boot time is 90 as against 1min 30secs. Great UI feels next generation and low on resources.

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.
