WPS Office 2016 Free
A full-featured Office-compatible productivity suite

WPS Office 2016 (previously Kingsoft Office) is a lightweight yet powerful office suite.

A speedy installation process equips your PC with three applications: WPS Writer is a capable word processor, WPS Spreadsheets handles all your calculating needs, and WPS Presentations is available to help share your ideas with others.

Each program opens and saves all Microsoft Office document formats (doc, docx, xls, xlsx etc), as well as HTML, RTF, XML, even PDF.

There's real depth here, too. WPS Writer isn't just another basic editor, for instance: there's support for tables, charts, shapes, images, equations and the 2016 edition is even compatible with WordArt and SmartArt.

Extras include a stack of stylish templates to get you off to a quick start.

This is a beta of the commercial edition, so there are none of the restrictions you usually get with the free copy of WPS. In particular, documents you save or print to PDF will not have a watermark added.

WPS Office 2016 adds compatibility with SmartArt and WordArt. There's full support for OOXML formats including DOCX, XLSX and PPTX. WPS Writer now has its own internal reader for opening PDFs. There are also various new charts with extra customisation options.

What's new in 10.1.0.5614 (see update log for more)?

- Bug Fix: In new blank documents, Line Spacing cannot be changed to Single when setting the text font of a paragraph to 14pt or above.

Verdict:

A seriously impressive and attractive suite of tools. Keep in mind that it's a beta, though - if you use it for serious work, save and back up your documents frequently.

For example in spreadsheets, if you use a custom formula i.e. on a cell =2+3+4 after a couple if tries, it will say only possible in prof edition which means i cannot keep adding more values to the cell if you know what i mean.

(Sorry my english).
I am testing WPS Office 2016. So far I can safely say that is excellent. It's exceeded my expectations. Probably I shall adopt it.
The features it provides are useful and efficient.
Compatibility with MS Office is also good.
The spreadsheet works well automaticity.
I not yet tested the WPS Presentations.
The question is the value of sales and support.

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.
