Google Earth 7
Explore the world in which we life with Google Earth

Google Earth enables you to travel the world from the comfort of your desktop, exploring stunning satellite imagery in stunning 3D. The fluid interface makes it easy to jump from country to country and zoom right in to street level. Certain key cities around the world benefit from 3D tours which can be used to take a virtual tour of key landmarks and get a feeling of the lay of the land.

You can also search for local businesses and places of interest, and the pinpointing tools mean that it is possible to bookmark locations on the map and share them with others. This feature can also be used to create virtual sightseeing tours - perhaps to show off the route you have taken on your travels.

While the program is immense fun, it can also be put to more serious uses. A range of different maps can be displayed, including historical maps which can show how country boundaries have changed over the years. Google Earth can also be used as route planner and to find out valuable information about towns, cities and country you plan to visit. Additional components are available that can be used to take virtual tour of the sky, moon and sun and the way in which users are invited to generate their own content to add to maps means that there is always something new to find.

Google Earth 7.1.1 is a minor upgrade. Changes include:

- Ability to create rich, annotated images from print and save
- Redesigned print flow
- Viewshed/Line of Sight analysis tool from a placemark
- New features in Google Earth and Google Earth Pro
- Support for LEAP Motion device
- Enhanced starfield
- Google Feedback tool integration
- Redesigned balloons

Verdict:

An educational tool which is also a great deal of fun, Google Earth bring geography to life.

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.
