Format Factory 3.9.0.1
Convert video, audio and picture files from one format to another

Format Factory is a powerful file conversion tool with a surprisingly extensive feature list.

The program doesn't just convert video files from one format to another, for instance - it also comes with built-in presets that will, at a click, create videos for a host of mobile devices. These include the iPhone, iPod and iPad, Sony PSP and PS3, and hardware by companies including Archos, ASUS, Creative, Google, HTC, iRiver, LG, Microsoft, Motorola, Nokia, Philips, RIM BlackBerry, Samsung, Song Ericsson and more.

You also get strong audio file conversion options, including the ability to convert any music files to MP3, WMA, FLAC, AAC, MMF, AMR, M4A, M4R, OGG, MP2, WAV and WavPack.

Format Factory even works with images, batch converting whatever pictures you like to JPG, PNG, ICO, BMP, GIF, TIF, PCX or TGA files.

And the program can also rip DVD and CDs, create ISO images from your discs, join multiple video or audio files together, repair corrupted video and audio files, and more.

Verdict:

Format Factory has one or two bugs, and crashed a couple of times during our tests. Most of the time it worked perfectly, though, and the sheer weight of its file conversion functionality means you really should give it a closer look

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.
