    Gone are the days when you'd have to head down to the store and pick up a slideshow maker, a video maker, a video capture tool, a CD burning tool, an image editor and so on and so forth

    Adobe Captivate 2 review

    As with so many of Adobe's more recent programs, the word that best sums up the Captivate 2 interface is 'stylish'. Suiting itself to both basic presentations and more interactive projects

    RecoverMyFiles review

    A number of bare-bones software solutions are available to carry out the veritable magic trick of scanning for and recovering lost data. RecoverMyFiles goes the extra mile and promises to reunite you with your files even after corruption or formatting.

    Windows Live OneCare 2.0 review

    Windows Live OneCare 2.0 review

    8  

    Microsoft's goal with Windows Live OneCare was to create a one-stop maintenance application that applied software updates, performed drive checking, and offered firewall and malware protection. The aim was good, the execution less so, with some common infections falling through the net. Now that it's reached version 2.0 has there been any improvement?

    Sony Vegas Movie Studio 8.0 review

    8  

    Adobe wasn't the first software company to strip down its pro-level video editing program for a mainstream market. Sonic Foundry (now owned by Sony) did just that some years ago with Vegas Movie Studio.

    The reason inkjet printers often turn out photos that look nothing like they appear on a computer screen when being edited with Photoshop is mostly down to your computer monitor

    Apple Aperture 1.0 review

    6  

    Apple has added another program to its range of professional digital editing tools, this time aimed at pro digital photographers and their post-production needs. At the heart of Aperture is the ability to handle RAW files swiftly.

    Norton Internet Security 2007 review

    8  

    Some say Norton products hog system resources, but that's not something we noticed with Internet Security 2007. It consumed less RAM than the competitors on our test PC, its scanning engine was faster, and we were able to continue using the system while a scan was running..

    CyberLink DVD Suite v6 Ultra review

    CyberLink DVD Suite v6 Ultra review

    8  

    Perhaps the name CyberLink is familiar to you. Chances are it’s because you’ve bought a PC that had PowerDVD bundled with it. It’s actually one of the better apps that pre-built systems often come with, but there is merit in the full, paid-for suite from CyberLink, and v6 now includes plenty of features for high-definition discs, too.

    Adobe Acrobat Pro 8 review

    8  

    Acrobat is by no means a sexy product. It's an important one for anyone involved in the print or creative industries, but it doesn't carry the pizzazz of the Creative Suite products in Adobe's arsenal.

    Acronis True Image 11 Home review

    8  

    Acronis True Image is a well-known example of back-up software and remains one of only a handful of applications that people are prepared to spend money on. Version 11 packs in the features and there are some great aspects worth shouting about.

    Serif PhotoPlus 11 Studio Pack review

    Serif PhotoPlus 11 Studio Pack review

    8  

    PhotoPlus is a very capable editor that's never quite escaped the shadow of Paint Shop Pro. Will version 11 be any different from its predecessors? Certainly not with regard to the interface: it's more cluttered, and not as straightforward for beginners.

    BluBox review

    9  

    With digital SLRs growing in popularity and compact cameras delivering larger image sizes, hard drives around the world are filling up with our photographic memories. File compression is one solution, of course, but it's a big negative when you're after the very best in image quality, especially with so-called "destructive" formats such as JPEG that degrade in quality the more you alter the files.

    First things first; Painter does exactly what it says on the tin. Literally: our review copy of Corel Painter X came in a big paint tin. We got our mitts on the limited-edition version complete with special packaging and a glossy poster

    DAZ Productions Bryce 6 review

    8  

    The most obvious new feature in Bryce 6 is the tighter integration with DAZ Studio, a rival to the figure-posing application Poser. While not as powerful as Poser, it's a competent program and can import static and animated scenes from DAZ Studio directly

    Adobe Photoshop CS3 review

    8  

    Adobe Photoshop CS3 is the 'king' of image-editors, the program by which all others are judged. It's also the most expensive program on test, and it's starting to find itself outstripped by cheaper rivals.

    So, just how special is this Special Media Edition of Office? Let's find out. First, we have to understand a little background. Two years ago, Microsoft bought iView Multimedia, which made digital asset management software (used for tracking photos, PDFs, text files, etc.).

    Apple Final Cut Studio 2 review

    Ever since its introduction at NAB in 1998, Final Cut Pro has come a very long way. Napoleon Dynamite, Cold Mountain, Jarhead and, more recently, 300 and Zodiac are just a few of the many feature films that have been edited in the application
