Aneesoft Free Image Editor 2.0.0
A very basic, but extremely easy-to-use image editor

Aneesoft Free Image Editor is an extremely simple graphics editor that has just enough functionality to be useful.

The program is compact, and installs quickly. There are no hassles, it won't try to install the Ask toolbar, the setup program just copies the necessary files into place (the entire installation requires under 6MB of hard drive space) and then launches Free Image Editor for you.

The interface is unusual, with no menus, no hidden functions - everything you can do is accessed from a few buttons at the top of the screen. So to begin you'll probably click New > Load image, and open a picture. The program only supports the main formats, but the ability to open ICO files is a useful addition.

Once you selected an image then you're able to rotate and crop it, or perhaps add a text caption. This latter option allows you to select the opacity of your text, as well as the font, its colour, size, style and more.

Clicking the Effects button reveals a host of other filters and options. So you can tweak brightness, contrast and gamma, flip the image horizontally or vertically, apply filters like posterization, solarization, threshold, video, emboss, halftone and so on.

And when you're happy, the image can be saved (though only as a BMP, JPG or PNG file).

There are obviously all kinds of limitations here. You can't select and work on part of an image, there's no support for layers, you don't get any automatic photo fixes, there's not even a resize option.

If you're just looking for something really simple, though, Aneesoft Free Image Editor may still be useful. It's easy to use and will help you complete (very) basic editing tasks with the minimum of hassle.


It's not going to replace Paint.NET any time soon. But if you want a very simple editor that even your most technophobic friends or relatives can use then Aneesoft Free Image Editor could be a good choice

Windows 10 May 2019 Update ISO (build 1903)

Free Full Commercial Software

This is the latest version of Windows May 2019 Update. it's a media creation tool that can be used to upgrade an existing installation of Windows or create installation media for another PC. Just make your choice after launching the tool and it'll do the rest.

What was new in Windows 10, when it was released? The OS brought back the Start Menu, though with a twist: live tiles keep you up-to-date with the latest news while also providing an easy way to launch apps. (Don't worry if you prefer the Start Screen, it's still there and you can boot into it if you prefer.)

Apps now work much more like regular desktop programs. They have minimise, maximise, restore and close buttons, and can be resized (to a degree) and organised however you like.

If you've still lost track of a program in the mass of open windows, a new Task Spaces feature can help. Click its taskbar button and you'll see thumbnails for everything running now, a little like OS X's Mission Control - just click something to switch to it.

Better still, Task Spaces also supports virtual desktops. Add extra desktops as required and it'll display thumbnails of each one, making it easy to identify whatever you're after and switch to it.

There's also smarter snapping, new customisation options, and even a bunch of experimental additions to the command prompt.

May 2019 Update brings a whole host of new features for Windows 10. See the Microsoft Blog for more information.

The Windows 10 ISO will give you build 1903 which is the May 2019 Update.
