  • Suggested by Andrew Lee

mp3DirectCut is a small tool for editing MPEG audio directly. You can remove parts, change the volume, split files or copy regions to new files, all without the need to decompress your MP3 into PCM/WAV. This saves work, encoding time and disk space. In addition, there is no quality loss to edited files.

In v2.22 there's a 'Configuration Storage' setting under Prefs>Folders. By default it's unchecked. Does it need to be enabled for portable use?

The new "flat" design with similar monochrome icons is a step back in usability. Normal appearance, apart from grouping of toolbar buttons, can be restored under Configuration -> Layout.

The program is a good tool for trimming old MP3 encodes without incurring further quality loss. Glitches are avoided if the MP3 is upconverted to 320 kbit beforehand with MP3Packer.

I wish it also supported common simple video soundtrack formats.

AT ITS SIZE, nothing is like this! so powerful

Its similar to AviTricks Classic for Avi editing, but for audio files. Using a 3rd "tiny" app, Avi2wav, these together are 2mb worth of just stupid levels of "professionalism"

...If your only audio editor was this little guy, you could PULL A LOT OFF

  • Suggested by Midas

ImBatch is a powerful image processing tool with a long list of available tools for modifying one or more files. Available options include resize, rotate, modify colors, metdata, blur, shadow, crop and many more. Tasks can be chained (e.g. adjust contrast + sharpen) and reordered to just preview not just one change but multiple edits. Any process can be saved for quickly assembling future edits.

The program can also optimize images, create or add to an existing PDF, create animations (GIF), and upload the results to a remote server. The program can also passively watch a given folder for images to process and longer operations can put the computer in standby to save power once they conclude.

Smart functions include autocrop, auto-enhance, auto-stitch (for panorama-type images). The program supports a wide range of formats, command-line operations and batch task settings for easy load/unload of operations.

Easy to use and works good - just drag and drop over the window or dialog box. Seems more reliable and lite weight compared to similar apps.

This one is great. Unlike the other magnifier in the database ("OneLoupe"), it can also magnify constantly changing values on the display (OneLoupe sticks to the first value when moved over a changing field). I use Magnifixer to magnify the constantly changing display of a stopwatch ("1Time", also in the database), so I can check the watch when I'm doing something several metres away from the screen.
