PhotoGIMP [5 MB] Win 7-11   Open Source

 

PhotoGIMP is a simple patch designed to modify GIMP 2.10+ with a more modern interface resembling Photoshop.

 

Enjoy a more refined experience while editing your photos with GIMP. It also permits you to easily match GIMP's shortcuts to that of Photoshop, eliminating the need to relearn them. This fact makes the whole process less time-consuming and ultimately makes it more efficient so you can get back to creating.

 

PhotoGIMP Features:

 

Hundreds of new fonts by default

New Python filters installed by default, such as "heal selection."

New Splash Screen

New default settings to maximize space on the canvas

Shortcuts similar to the ones on Photoshop, following Adobe's Documentation

ReShade [4 MB] Win 7-11   Open Source

 

ReShade is an Open Source tool that helps improve the look of older games on modern video cards and allows the addition of newer display/video technologies to older games that do not support those technologies.

 

ReShade, technically speaking, is a generic post-processing injector for games and video software. Imagine seeing your favorite game with ambient occlusion, real depth of field effects, or color correction. ReShade is designed to function by exposing an automated and generic way to access frame color and depth information (the latter is automatically disabled during multiplayer to prevent exploitation) and all the tools needed to facilitate the entire process.

 

ReShade adds advanced depth-edge-detection-driven SMAA antialiasing, screen-space ambient occlusion, depth of field effects, chromatic aberration, dynamic film grain, automatic saturation, color correction cross processing, multi-pass blurring, and so much more. ReShade features its very own shading language and transcompiler, called ReShade FX. The syntax is based on HLSL, adding useful features designed for developing post-processing effects. These features include defining and using textures from the shader code, rendering to them, changing render states, retrieving color and depth data, and requesting custom values like timers or key states. But there is more. You can also write your shaders, and they'll work everywhere, regardless of your target being Direct3D or OpenGL: ReShade takes care of compiling them to the right shader model and language.

Blizzard Battle Net [5 MB] Win 7-11/Android/macOS   Freeware

 

Blizzard Battle.Net is the game downloader for Blizzard games, including World of Warcraft, Diablo®III, StarCraft II, Hearthstone, Heroes of the Storm, Overwatch, Destiny 2, and other Classic Games.

 

Battle.Net used to have individual downloaders but replaced that with their client. As a general rule, for some reason, people tend to rate all of these downloaders poorly, but we disagree. Steam is a good example. While it used to be a real turd, it's come a long way and is required by gamers. Of course, the needed part might be why people downrate these apps. Who knows? We've been using Battle.Net for over 15 years just for World of Warcraft. Wow, we're old.

 

The one thing that seems to be missing is some of the free classic games. While you can find Heroes of the Storm and Hearthstone under Shop, other's appear to be missing, possibly because the older games might be difficult to run on modern computers.

 

The client is uncluttered and straightforward to use. All available games can be found on the left, and across the top, you can go to Games, Social, Shop, and News. You can chat, keep up with the latest news, view your profile, available gifts, account settings, and of course, buy games.

WinfrGUI [4 MB] Win 10-11   Freeware

 

WinfrGUI adds a graphical user interface (GUI) to Microsoft Windows File Recovery (a command-line data recovery app), making it more accessible to anyone who does not like the command prompt.

 

While the included Windows File Recovery works well, we admit to rarely using it because there are so many third-party apps available that simplify the process. WinfrGUI makes Windows File Recovery as easy to use as any third-party app available.

 

The interface uses a light blue and white them that is pleasing to the eye and easy to navigate. Using WinfrGUI is as easy as selecting a partition and selecting a scanning mode (quick or deep).

 

Advanced Settings should be used before scanning to find the best results and reduce the scan time. You can choose a file type (documents, photos, videos, audio, web pages, and compressed files. Additionally, you can add a custom extension and specify specific folders to scan.

 

Once you have everything ready to scan, select a folder to save any recovered files. You will need a second hard drive or even a thumb drive as you can't and shouldn't save recovered files to the drive being scanned.

 

Windows File Recovery (Winfr) may need to be installed from the Microsoft Store, and it's only usable to anyone who is very comfortable using the command line. WinfrGUI changes everything, making Windows File Recovery one of the must-try data recovery apps.
