wTicker is an advanced feed aggregator, that comes loaded with many unique features. Besides RSS Feeds, it also supports to gather information from Usenet, Email or even local eventlogs.
While loaded with features, this is most certainly a software for more advanced users - the documentation is sparse, and we found it very difficult to figure out the features and concept of the program, which involve custom SQL queries and dozens of configuration options.
Using the program as basic RSS feed reader is fairly straightforward though, and includes an optional desktop ticker, as well as keyword alerts, article tags and integrated browser display. Making use of the more advanced feature will require some time and patience.
AKVIS Retoucher 11.0
AKVIS Retoucher is an efficient program for photo restoration and photo retouching.
Retoucher not only removes dust, scratches, stains and other defects that appear on damaged photos but is also able to reconstruct missing parts of a photo using the information of the surrounding areas.
The work is done automatically; you only have to indicate areas to be restored, push the button, and here you are - the surface becomes smooth and imperfections disappear. It looks like magic when you observe the scratches vanishing before your very eyes.
AKVIS Retoucher is also a handy tool for improving photo composition. It is possible to remove date stamps, small irrelevant details (wires, refuse bins, etc) and even bigger objects (i.e. people who fell into the shot by accident, cars in the background). If you need to increase the canvas size (from one side or proportionally) to bring the main object into focus, i.e. to center it, AKVIS Retoucher will help you to extend image patterns to the blank areas of the canvas.
Polygraphists will find Retoucher useful in doing the prepress processing job. They often have the problem of extending the borders of a layout that does not have space for cropping.
AKVIS Retoucher is available as an independent program (standalone) and as a plugin to a photo editor. The plugin version is compatible with Adobe Photoshop, Photoshop Elements, Corel Paint Shop Pro etc.
Evaluation period: 10 days.
