There are built-in Windows tools to manage graphics, but their capabilities are very limited. So if you like to take pictures with a digital camera or just work with graphics files, you should think of an alternative solution. FastStone Image Viewer could be the great alternative. Its main purpose is image viewer, but this program also can handle photos, including batch processing. Using this piece of software one can rename files, change the resolution of the picture, manage color correction, etc. In addition, FastStone Image Viewer supports RAW and displays metadata about the photo EXIF. With the help of this program, you can create slideshows, decorate it with various transition effects and add background music. The full-screen mode is very informative. You can just watch the photos or turn the cursor to the side of the screen and apply some effects, do the edits, explore the EXIF info or choose the other photo in the folder. I often use the batch process feature to convert files to another format. FastStone Image Viewer can quickly convert a JPEG, BMP, GIF, PNG, TIFF and JPEG2000 formats, including the files in the nested folders. Such image settings like color depth, resolution, orientation could be modified on the fly for the whole batch. It is also possible to add watermarks, frames and effects while converting, to set the destination folder. There is also the batch rename feature. FastStone Photo Resizer can rename the files by adding the counter at the end of the name, to find and replace characters in the file names. The selected conversion and renaming settings can be saved for future use.

Pros :

  • Just works fine, speedy and easy to learn.
  • A lot of features for image manipulation.
  • Great hotkeys support.
  • Google Maps and Google Earth compatibility.
  • Free for personal use.

Cons :

  • No auto update.
  • Some bugs relating Windows integration.

If you need 3D modeling of human figure most likely you need Poser. The process of setting up character animation is one of the most difficult stages of 3D creation. Poser helps to solve this problem quickly. The Poser user has a complete set of tools for creating and configuring skeletal animation. The main purpose of this app is game assets creation, but it could be also used in medical projects, for simple presentations creation, as well as for multimedia projects where you want to demonstrate human movement in 3D. You can flexibly control the movements of the various parts of the skeleton, to determine the degree of influence of one or another part to the outer shell. There is a console from which the user may control the tilting and rotations of the bones. A definite advantage of the program is that there are a lot of libraries, including animated people, animals, and various scenery that can simplify the creation of environment. Poser compatible with a number of professional 3D editors and also with the most popular game engines — Unity 3D and Unreal Engine. The last Poser release is named Poser Pro Game Dev. This edition can use Kinect for Windows motion capture system. Because of this, it's very easy to achieve the realistic character movements. Poser Pro Game Dev also contains tools for editing the model topology, making it possible to obtain low-poly animation. The other prominent feature — FBX file format support. The earlier Poser version (Poser Pro 2014) includes only Collada import and export.

Pros :

  • A lot of pre-generated content.
  • Good documentation.
  • Kinect for Windows motion capture system support.
  • Popular game engine support.
  • Popular universal 3d formats support.

Cons :

  •  Poser Pro Game Dev version is pricey for the non-pros.
  • The lack of modeling tools Not the best renderer.

FastStone Photo Resizer, which is also available as a portable tool for running on USB flash drives, allows you to select a large group of images from multiple folders, then convert them into a different format, rename them and even perform a host of batch image-processing functions, such as resizing, colour correcting or adding a watermark.

Even if you never use Poser professionally and only dabble with it for fun, you’ll be impressed by the quality of 3D work you can produce with relative ease, and gain a new appreciation and understanding for the 3D design and animation work that goes into many of the scenes in films that leave audiences stunned.
