Edit, enhance and share photos with Snapseed Desktop

Owners of digital cameras will be only too aware that it is possible to speed endless time tweaking photos, not only to help get the perfect version of an image, but also to get creative with your work. Photo editing software is not a software market that is exactly short of choice, but the market for low-cost, high-quality app is often found wanting. Snapseed is a cross platform editing and optimization tool that is available for Mac, PC and iOS, with a very similar user experience available on all devices.

There are a range of filters and special effects to choose from, including the likes of Vintage, Grunge, and Tilt & Shift which can all be used to give your images a unique look and feel, but there are also more conventional image editing options to experiment with. Simple options such as rotating, cropping and resizing will come in useful on an almost daily basis and the Auto Correct option is available for anyone looking to get a quick fix.

To finish off the images you are most pleased with, there are also a number of frames that you can add. The range of editing options available is impressive, and the subtlety with which they can be applied means that some unique and tailored results can be attained. No image editing app these days would be completed without a selection of sharing options, and Snapseed has the social side of things covered with the option of sharing images via Facebook and Flickr.

The latest version of the desktop app for Mac and Windows add support for an extra eight languages and the ability to use the app with both Adobe Photoshop Lightroom and Apple Aperture. This means that if you are using either of these tools to manage your digital photograph collection, it is possible to quickly send any images to Snapseed for editing and optimizing, taking advantage of the quick options such as one-click adjustment. Also added is the ability to save in the TIFF format, and a Save option has been added to the program in addition to the previous Save As.

Verdict:

Easy enough to use for fun, but results that are impressive enough to show off – the perfect balance.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.18.111

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 2.18.111 

• It’s now easier to start group voice and video calls. Just tap the call button in groups or select "New group call" when starting a new call in the calls tab. Group calls support up to 4 participants.
