AKVIS Chameleon is an efficient tool for photo collage creation. It eliminates the tedium of selecting an object with a complicated shape for pasting into a new background. The software has three modes: montage, chameleon, and blend. Montage mode fades the irrelevant parts of an object into the background. Chameleon mode adjusts the inserted object to the target image's color range and smooths the object's borders. Blend mode both adjusts the color range and smooths the object's borders and also makes the object semi-transparent.
AKVIS Coloriage is a plug-in for colorizing B&W photos and replacing colors in color photos. It works equally well for coloring of portraits, landscapes, fashion,and still life. The skin, sky, verdure, and tree color patterns help users to select realistic colors for their picture.

Asymptopia Crossword Builder (Math/Text) is an application that runs in any modern Web browser, but does not require an Internet connection (if it is installed locally). The application was designed to allow teachers to quickly produce well-designed, challenging activities. The application features a configuration panel where the user can either enter their own word-hint pairs, or generate math-crossword problems via a single button. The math functionality generates word:hint pairs like: "four:7/x-3/8=11/8", where the hint corresponds to the problem, and the student would write the letters "four" in the corresponding boxes of the puzzle.
Barcode Studio is designed to quickly create high-quality barcode images. It is commonly used for pre-press requirements, postal bar-coding, desktop publishing applications, mobile tagging, print shops, and general barcode purposes. It supports all linear barcodes (like Code39, 2of5, EAN, UPC, Code39, Code128, and EAN/UCC128), 2D barcodes (like PDF417, QR-Code, Aztec Code, DataMatrix ECC200, and MaxiCode), GS1 DataBar, and HIBC codes. Barcode data can be entered manually or imported from external data sources. Serial numbers are created automatically on demand. It has a built-in quality preview. Single as well as batch barcode creation is supported via the command line or the graphical user interface. Barcodes can be printed directly, copied to the clipboard, generated as image files (BMP, GIF, JPG, TIFF, or PNG) or exported as vector graphics (EPS, EMF, WMF , PDF, or PostScript). The created barcodes are useable immediately: Just insert the barcode graphics into your artwork, database, form, or any document.
FidoCadJ is a very easy-to-use editor, with a library of electrical symbols and footprints (through hole and SMD). Drawings can be exported in several graphic formats (PDF, EPS, PGF for LaTeX, SVG, PNG, and JPEG). Although very simple and not relying on any netlist concept, FidoCadJ can be considered a basic electronic design automation program. FidoCadJ uses a file format containing only UTF-8 text, which is very compact and suited for copying and pasting with newsgroups and forum messages. This determined its success, as it is quite versatile for simple mechanical drawings as well as for electronics.
