XnRetro

Our Rating 7 /10
License Freeware
Windows          XP/Vista/7/8

 

XnRetro allows you to create stunning images with vintage or instant effect on your Desktop.

  • 20 color effects
  • 15 light effects such as bokeh,leak
  • 28 frame borders
  • Adjustement like contrast, gamma, saturation, …
  • Vignetting Noise
  • Save or share the result

The real-time preview makes it easy to tweak the default settings for each effect by changing color balance, exposure, contrast and other details. You can also tune the opacity for light and vignetting layers to achieve stronger or more subtle retro effects.In addition to the 20 retro styles, XnRetro includes 15 light overlays and 30 simulated frame styles, all of them can be combined to create custom results.

XnRetro is available for Windows and OS X and I’ve taken a look at the Windows version. Frequently in the past, software used to look a bit clunky and dated on Windows, compared to when running on Apple computers, but thankfully that is changing more and more and so XnRetro provides quite a clean and friendly user interface.

Adobe Photoshop CS2

Adobe Photoshop CS2

Our Rating 9 /10
License Freeware
Windows          XP/Vista/7

 

This is an old version of Photoshop from 2005 which is now offered for free*. Although it does not offer the latest and greatest features, CS2 is perfectly suitable for professional image editing and includes all the features that made Photoshop the industry standard. Despite its longevity, CS2 is certainly not bad, and in my opinion, this is a very smart move from Adobe. Omitting those who’ll grab their software from unfair mediums, quite a few would-be Photoshop users will have settled for cheaper or free alternatives, notably the GIMP, but by giving everybody a taste of Photoshop through CS2, I wouldn’t be surprised if some users bit the bullet and ended up paying for a newer version.

Presumably, this means it’ll always be free, and while CS2 is missing quite a few features compared with the latest release, it’s certainly a nice late Christmas / New Years’ present for those who love nothing more than sitting at a computer and slipping into creative mode. Hopefully, this sets a precedent, meaning CS3 will soon become free as Adobe weighs up the costs of keeping activation servers running in relation to how many people would legitimately buy a decade-old software.

Machete Lite

Our Rating 7 /10
License Freeware
Windows          XP/Vista/7

 

Machete is a convenient utility for playing and editing multimedia files. Currently, Machete can edit video and audio files in AVI, FLV, WMV, MKV, MP4, MOV, WMA, MP3 and WAV formats. The support of editing functions for other formats is planned for future versions of the program. You don’t need any special skills or advanced knowledge to edit video with Machete.

The program is so intuitive and simple that you can literally start editing your multimedia files within a few minutes after downloading it! With its extremely user-friendly design, Machete is an ideal solution for quick and easy “slicing” of your multimedia files. You can delete unnecessary fragments (e.g. cut out commercials), copy, move, mix and save individual pieces. This means that Machete combines the functionality of both easy video splitter (cutter, trimmer), video joiner (for joining multimedia files with exactly the same formats) and more. None of the editing operations in our easy video editor requires re-encoding of video or audio streams.

This is why the editing process in Machete is very quick and does not lead to any loss of video quality. This puts Machete in the category of lossless video editors. Also, it means that you do not need a powerful and expensive computer to edit your video material. After a file is edited and saved, it retains its original format.

Stykz is freeware, meaning it’s completely free to download and use to create animations that you can show off to others or import into other applications. No hidden costs, license or permission are required to use Stykz to its fullest. Stykz is the first multi-platform stick figure animation program in the world (as far as we know), so you’ll be able to use Mac OS X, Windows, and Linux* to create, edit and preview your animations. (*Linux is in internal beta but will be available soon.)

If you’ve ever used Pivot StickFigure Animator, you’ll feel right at home working with Stykz. It was designed to be a superset of Pivot’s feature set, so we know you’ll appreciate the similarities to Pivot as well as the extra features that Stykz has to offer! Stykz is frame-based, letting you work on individual frames of your animation to make it just right. Onionskins let you see what was in the previous frame so you can make adjustments to your current frame easily. New frames can be created by clicking on the “Next Frame” button in the Frames palette, or by simply hitting the Enter key… in fact, you can use the Enter key while you’re manipulating a figure! It’s kind of like taking snapshots of the current frame while you’re moving or pivoting segments… this feature makes it very easy to get smooth animation.
