ASHAMPOO PHOTO MAILER

Email­ing a few pho­tos to a friend should be easy, but the re­al­ity can be very di¢er­ent. The max­i­mum at­tach­ment size for some email servers is only 10MB, so to send more you might have to spend time crop­ping im­ages, re­siz­ing them, us­ing lower qual­ity set­tings, maybe split­ting them across mul­ti­ple emails.

Ashampoo Photo Mailer is a spe­cial­ist email client which re­moves all these has­sles. There’s no need to worry about size lim­its, the num­ber of pho­tos you’re send­ing or any­thing else, as the pro­gram han­dles ev­ery­thing for you.

A sim­ple wizard-based in­ter­face im­ports your im­ages with a drag and drop, then dis­plays a sim­ple “new mes­sage” di­a­log. You might need your email ac­count de­tails - server, user name, pass­word - the first time you use the pro­gram, but oth­er­wise it’s just a mat­ter of en­ter­ing your re­cip­i­ent’s email ad­dress, a sub­ject line and maybe some body text.

Ashampoo Photo Mailer then adds up the to­tal size of all your im­ages, and tells you how many emails it’ll take to send them all. If you’re happy with this, click Next to send them; if you’re not, drag­ging the “Qual­ity” slider re­duces the im­age qual­ity and file size un­til it hits some­thing more suit­able.

This all worked well for us, but there are also a cou­ple of more hid­den set­tings you need to ex­plore.

The “Ad­dress Book” can im­port your Win­dows con­tacts in a cou­ple of clicks, en­sur­ing you won’t have to man­u­ally reen­ter ev­ery email ad­dress.

By de­fault the emails you send have a sig­na­ture ad­ver­tis­ing Photo Mailer, but this isn’t hard-coded. Click Set­tings > Op­tions and you can change it to what­ever you like.

PDF COM­PRES­SOR

Abelssoft PDF Com­pres­sor 2017 is a sim­ple ap­pli­ca­tion which makes it easy to shrink your PDFs.

Drag and drop your tar­get doc­u­ments onto the pro­gram and they ap­pear as tabs. Click­ing on any of these dis­plays a pre­view, and you can browse through page thumb­nails to make sure you’ve got the right files.

Drag­ging the ro­tary “Out­put Qual­ity” slider al­lows you to set the qual­ity of your saved files. High val­ues will pre­serve the orig­i­nal doc­u­ment qual­ity but make lit­tle di’er­ence to file size; low val­ues may sig­nif­i­cantly re­duce qual­ity, but also de­liver the best re­duc­tions in file size.

When you’re ready, click Com­press, choose an out­put folder, and the pro­gram shrinks and writes each doc­u­ment in turn.

WEB­SITE X5 START 13

Web­Site X5 Start 13 is an easy-to-use WYSIWYG web de­sign tool which can help you cre­ate web­sites, blogs, on­line stores, pre­sen­ta­tions, dig­i­tal photo al­bums and a whole lot more.

Un­like many sim­i­lar ap­pli­ca­tions, Web­Site X5 Start doesn’t re­quire web de­sign ex­pe­ri­ence or low-level knowl­edge of the tech­nol­ogy. You don’t have to edit HTML code or de­bug JavaScripts: in­stead, the pro­gram acts as a straight­for­ward wizard, walk­ing you through ev­ery step of the de­sign process.

You start by choos­ing from 150 pro­fes­sion­ally-de­signed site tem­plates, for in­stance. They’re sorted in themes like “Shop”, “Cinema”, “An­i­mals”, “Sport”, and all you have to do is browse the thumb­nail gallery and se­lect what­ever you need.

Af­ter set­ting cus­tom page head­ers and foot­ers, you’re able to build a site map, which de­fines the struc­ture of your project. Then you can ex­tend this, adding more menus, maybe nest­ing them to match what­ever you’re try­ing to do.

De­sign­ing in­di­vid­ual pages is then just a mat­ter of drag­ging and drop­ping ob­jects onto a page. At its sim­plest, you might just add a text box, then type into it to add what­ever con­tent you need. But it’s just as easy to add im­ages, videos or au­dio files, Flash an­i­ma­tions, maps, and a range of so­cial net­work gad­gets.
