Vampix
Create simple colour splash-type effects

Vampix provides a quick and easy way to create eye-catching colour splash-type effects.

It turns every part of an image to black and white, apart from the colour you select: blue eyes, a red rose, whatever it might be.

Load your target image and the program displays it alongside the preview window, which initially is just a greyscale version of the original.

Click on a colour within the original image, though, and the preview updates to show every pixel of that shade. If you've clicked on green trees in the background of a landscape scene, for instance, all similar pixels in the preview image will appear green, while everything else stays grey.

If this doesn't look quite right, clicking on a fractionally different shade updates the preview immediately. You can fine-tune the results by adjusting a threshold, too. Decreasing the threshold matches colours more accurately to your selection, displaying less colour overall; increasing the threshold extends the tolerance and gives you more of the original shades.

This works, but can be quite limited. You can only select a single colour, and there's no way to localise the effect. If you click on a blue sky, for example, any other pixel of that shade - water, clothing, whatever - will also be coloured in the finished image.

Still, this simplicity does keep the program easy-to-use, and it can deliver good results with the right image.

Verdict:

Vampix is extremely basic - more suited to being a single effect in an image editor, than a stand-alone program - but it's also easy to use, and can produce eye-catching results in some situations. If you need this effect and are looking for something simple, give it a try.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.17.40

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 2.17.40

• Pin chats to the top of your chat list, so you can quickly find them. Just swipe right on a chat and tap the pin icon.
• You can now send documents of any type. To send a document, open a chat, tap attach — document. 
• When you receive multiple photos, you can now tap and hold on the group of photos to quickly forward or delete all of them.
