EasyInvert - magnification and color controls

An easy front-end to all the various visual improvement features of Windows 10. Not portable, but can see a lot of uses for this both in terms of usability and focus. Radically change the appearance of your screen and its application can significantly improve your visual experience. Easy Invert make...

Re: FrameFun - image border and watermark

Old thread update:

Website has moved: https://www.hochstrasser.org/wiki/index ... i/FrameFun
Softpedia: https://www.softpedia.com/get/Multimedi ... eFun.shtml

I use ShareX for something similar, but this still looks good despite the age.

Re: Gravit - vector design editor

Update : Still in development, seems to be fairly active. https://www.designer.io/en/changelog/ Something I keep running into is crappy images so when I saw that Gravit will support conversion from "raster images to vector groups with one click via Vectorize image command" that's definitely somethi...

Re: CherryTree - hierarchical note taking app

I find it's far better to use the native portable version than the Portable Apps version I've had similar experiences. Notably the Folding@Home client (not natively portable), Notepad++, and CubicExplorer (which are natively portable) just seemed to both work better over time. However, the opposite...

Re: Notepad++ - text and programmer's editor

Notepad++ -> Offline User Manual rel. 2.5 released at July 13, 2021 I always much prefer help materials in an offline state. Websites die and it's nice to have good info, and this just goes to show how easy that is (this was created with HTTrack Website Copier -- it's just a copy of the user manual...

Re: Anti-Twin - duplicate finder that can match SIMILAR names

I formerly had a note in the anti-twin entry that it doesn't detect similar text files. I'm not sure what I did wrong the first time but I had a need for a batch similar content checker so I retested this with two slightly different text files: https://i.imgur.com/LQo38ip.png Seems to work fine.

Hydrus Network - image manager and collab tagging

I didn't make it very far into this program just because there's a bit of a learning curve and I was looking for something to simplify things rather than re-learn a new system.  Still, it might come in handy for someone on the site. Appears to work with other image collection sites and their existin...

Vampix - color threshold editor

A cute image tweak, usually used to create those nifty black and white with streaks of red photos you sometime see in plant photography. There are definitely other tools on the site that can do what this does, but the simplicity and speed might be worthwhile. One minor negative: I wasn't able to res...

Obsidian and Zettlr - markdown editors

Two very smart markdown editor tools that I've seen some very encouraging things from. The programs share a lot in common, including their install behavior, so I gave them a united post. https://obsidian.md/ (liteware) https://www.zettlr.com/ (open source) Status : Not portable , writes program and ...

Re: ExtremeCopy Portable

Update: now at v.2.4, the program is distributed in ZIP format, but no idea if it's portable. http://easersoft.com/ The only "portable" version appears to be from back when Midas first posted about this, and is on Softpedia: https://www.softpedia.com/get/PORTABLE-SOFTWARE/System/File-management/Extr...

Re: Photoflare (Qt-based image editor)

Still in development with some updates just a few days ago:
https://photoflare.io/photoflare-v1-6-9-released/

Smaragdus opened a case about this a few years back about portability, so it may be time for a retest: https://github.com/PhotoFlare/photoflare/issues/172
