Correct, enhance and improve your photos with this ultra-powerful open source tool

Photivo is an extremely powerful open source photo processing tool which comes packed with advanced algorithms to help enhance your images.

And we really do mean "packed". If you'd like to sharpen a photo, for instance, the program supports lots of options: Gradient Sharpen, Wiener, Inverse Diffusion, Unsharp Mask, and more. And clicking the "RGB" button reveals no less than 16 ways to tweak your image brightness, colours, contrast and more.

The program also offers excellent tools covering geometry correction, denoising, demosaicing, vignetting, and the list goes on.

And most of these options are extremely configurable. Click "Gradient Sharpen", say, and you get to set values for Strength, Microcontrast, Halo control, Weight, Clean up and the number of passes. And other algorithms offer just as much fine control.

Photivo isn't aimed at photo processing novices, though, so if you're a beginner then you'll probably find all the settings a little confusing (initially, anyway).

You don't have to understand every single detail to get something from the program, though. And with a little time spent studying the online manual you should soon be getting more from Photivo and your digital photos.

Verdict:

Photivo is a powerful and very capable photo processing tool, but it's targeted very much at experienced users. Processing novices will need to spend a while studying the manual before they can use the program productively.

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.
