Paragon Go Virtual 1.0 (32-bit)
Easily migrate any physical hard drive or partition to a virtual disk

Paragon Go Virtual is an easy-to-use, free tool that will quickly copy your hard drive to a virtual disk in any of the main formats: VMware Workstation/ Fusion, Microsoft VirtualPC or Oracle VirtualBox.

The program has many possible uses.

If you're upgrading your PC, for instance, you could save your old configuration - operating system, applications, data, everything - to a virtual disk, then continue using it in a virtual machine.

You're able to test potentially risky applications in your virtual environment with no danger of harming your regular PC.

Or, if you save the virtual disk to a USB hard drive, then you'll be able to take it with you on your travels, and access your programs and data from any convenient PC.

Whatever you want to do with the virtual copy of your PC, creating it won't take long. Just point the Go Virtual wizard at your source drive, choose the destination format, and it'll duplicate your system just as fast as your hardware will allow.

If you find Paragon Go Virtual useful then you might appreciate Paragon Virtualization Manager Professional, which can also create virtual disks but adds many more features. The program can connect to a virtual disk so you can browse and work with it, for instance; it's able to partition hard drives, transfer data between any type of virtual disk, and automate program tasks through scripting and scheduling. Normally $99.95, you may upgrade to Virtualization Manager for only $69.95; see the upgrade page for more.
 

Verdict:

There are similar free tools around, but Paragon Go Virtual wins out for its support of several virtual disk formats. This is a quick and easy way to convert any hard drive or partition to the virtual disk type of your 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.
