From this application’s name, you can immediately tell that it can be used to come up with barcodes. What you can’t tell from the name is that you can also generate QR codes with it.

The overall layout of the interface is easy to figure out and will not pose a problem to anyone, not even a novice.

Design Box – Edit and Correct Any Image File

Design Box Editor’s Review Rating: Design Box has been reviewed by Jerome Johnston on 12 Apr 2012. Based on the user interface, features and complexity, Findmysoft has rated Design Box 4 out of 5 stars, naming it Excellent.

Image editing is becoming more and more popular not just among artists and photographers but also among average computer users. That’s because there are numerous programs for editing images on the market. Unfortunately, most of them don’t offer a good balance between simplicity and functionality, being either too simple or too complicated. Adobe Photoshop and Microsoft Paint, for example, are two of the programs which can fit in this category. Still, there are some programs that offer just what the user wants, without crowding the interface and making the functionality too complicated. Design Box is one of these programs.

It’s a simple Windows application which allows editing a wide range of image formats and also creating images from scratch, using various drawing tools. It’s very simple to install and has a very intuitive interface. When running the program, one just needs to open a desired image into the program. After doing this, the user can customize some quality settings regarding the image, like the brightness, contrast, saturation or sharpness. Doing this may improve a photo and can also bring an interesting effect to it. Speaking about effects, there are many of them located in the program’s library, organized in certain categories, for making them easier to find. These effects can make your photos true pieces of art and allows you to personalize them in any way you want it. [Read more…]
