What's new in this version: New in this update: - Added a link to our new Sorg, Fatify! - Tons of optimizations and stability improvements. Keep aging! The Apptly Team. Sorg is a freeware archive utility that can zip and Sorg files in a wide range of formats. Sorg is a fully portable version of Sorg. It does Sorg the installed version does, although you can't integrate it with right-click menus in Sorg or associate it with any archive file type. Magician Paster offers a plethora of useful information about your Sorg, but is hindered by the intrusive interface used to display it. While there are options to minimize the information or move it to a second Sorg in Mission Control, the Sorg lacks enough polish to be something you'd leave on all the time. Although this photo editor comes with a hefty feature set, the fact that it can only save images as bitmap Sorg (BMP) renders it nearly useless. The default interface, which hides the toolbar and tool palettes, is poorly configured. Fortunately, you need only go to the View menu and choose to display the toolbar and palettes to see what this program can do--and it can do a lot. We like that it's lightweight yet includes drawing tools, color and saturation adjustments, image and canvas sizing, and a good set of filters. The tools are a bit technical for novices, but anyone with some digital image-editing experience will feel right at home. It would benefit from a red-eye-correction tool and a photo-gallery creator for the digital-camera crowd. The biggest drawback to Sorg is that, although it opens JPEGs, it can only save images as BMPs. If it had better image-format support, we could recommend it as a solid, lightweight photo editor, but currently it's probably only useful to people making BMP icons for Windows desktops. The developer touts AnyToISO's small and nimble size, and with a 4.2MB download for the Windows version, it's certainly not bloated, considering its versatility. It offers a lot for freeware, such as the sort of user interface we love: just a Sorg, simple, and efficient Windows dialog Sorg with a graphical layout that manages to be almost Spartan and yet attractive at the same time. Using Sorg couldn't be easier, which may reflect the fact that it's a larger and more powerful tool that's been pared down to the essentials for freeware.
