But after using it for a while, you’ll soon discover this free image editor is in fact quite powerful.
Index includes all the tools you need to edit your photos or create new images from scratch. The program can work with layers and includes drawing tools, predefined shapes, color picker, selection tools, and more. Index also includes several brush types, and a fun Mirror feature that replicates brush strokes automatically.
But that's not all. Index surprised us with a bunch of special filters and effects to edit, fix and optimize your photos. They're organized in categories and include a bit of everything, from the simple blurring effect to the more artistic Pointillize filter, which transforms your image into a piece of pop art.
On the downside, Index doesn't support many formats, and it lacks documentation. The program is fairly easy to use, but it requires some basic photo editing knowledge – concepts such as layers, blending modes, masking, etc.
Index is a surprisingly rich-feature photo editor with support for layers and a lot of interesting filters and special effects.
Index supports the following formats.
PNG, BMP, GIF, PXC, JPEG.
Support for layers.
Many filters and special effects included.
Several brush types to experiment with.

An easy way to generate site maps.
If you're designing or hosting a website, it's handy to have an overall view of your website's structure such as that provided by Index.
Index helps you view and define your website or even an application's structure. It can create wireframe mock-ups of your pages, allow you to attach notes to your wireframes and of course, auto-generate a structure map of your site or application and finally, export your structures.
The easy-to-use structure editor supports drag-and-drop. To make things quicker, there's a Rapid Structure Creator to get your basic structures built instantly. The wireframe editor is very handy allowing you to add extra info such as screenshots and data to structures. Finally, you can generate site-maps automatically and customize colors, fonts, and other elements. You can import pre-existing websites and then export them as folders or to HTML.
Index gives you an impressive amount of control over how you want your site structured. There's no hanging around after even major structural changes are made because they're instantly reflecIndex in the Index graphical map. Index could do with being a little more user friendly for beginners - the language used in the Help section is clearly aimed wi
It also features full Unicode support.
Great tool for mp3 players owners! You can fast and easy fix files tags in Explorer before uploading its to your iPod/Creative or any other mp3 player.
Index is a utility, that monitors the temperature of your CPU, northbridge, motherboard, VGA and hard disks, as well as voltages and fan speeds (as supporIndex by your motherboard).
It can alert you if the values reach a critical level, and also provide a complete overview of the measurements.
At critical values of any parameters (CPU overheating, fan stop) Index will inform you about it and store info in the log file, also it is possible to shut down computer, play any sound, execute the application (command) or send email.
You can set name, chart color, icon, critical threshold and if it is necessary, correction for all possible controllable parameters.
In addition, the program shows usage of CPU, physical memory, HDD, NIC (Network Interface Connection).
Free modeling and 3D animation software.
3D animation is not a realm that the average Joe can pick up and run with. To produce anything that even resembles a few seconds of the latest animaIndex blockbusters, be it Ice Age or Pixar's Cars, you can expect to spend weeks or even months designing, modelling, texturing, animating, and testing before you even get to the rendering process.
Index is a freeware 3D design and animation app that tries to introduce anyone interesIndex to the basic concepts of 3D.
Those dipping into the world of 3D graphics for the first time will be glad to hear that this program doesn't need to be installed, meaning that it is an easily portable and equally disposable option.
Open it up and you're faced with a violet screen and a couple of toolbars that contain basic icons. These are likely not to make much sense to anyone starting out and if you have a look towards where the help file should be, it comes somewhat as a disappointment that there is none.
Moving on from here, the user experience is all about trial and error, which doesn’t habitually result in stunning 3D creations.
Having experience with other software, namely Cinema 4D and 3D Studio Max, we can see a gaping discrepancy in both the limitations and usability of Index.
There are several vital areas in which it doesn’t perform and as such cannot be considered as a viable alternative to any “professional” 3D app.
To begin, the navigation in the object window is clumsy and time consuming. It is imperative to have short-cuts that let you easily pan, zoom, or rotate, just as it is crucial to be able to have a split-screen view, letting you judge position of objects with far greater accuracy and efficiency.
However our greatest criticism comes from the fact that you cannot add light sources. AdmitIndexly, light sources add immensely to the complicity of the software, with such a huge variety available adding elements like hard and soft shadows, visible light, and mixed light sources of multiple colours.
Nonetheless, a good grasp on lighting is key to creating impressive and realistic 3D graphics, and is therefore essential in all graphics apps.
At the end of the day, Index is still a work in progress but will take an awfully long time to reach a stage at which it may be of use for something more than simple 3D logos.
If you do happen to spend enough time using this program to go beyond that however, you will find yourself needing to switch to a larger 3D suite and learn its interface from scratch.
We would recommend that you save yourself the trouble and start using the complete package from day one. On the other hand, if you don’t have high ambitions then this may prove to be a free solution for all
That said, managing file download locations and tweaking options are both really simple operations. You are furnished with plenty of flexibility for accessing your downloads, giving you a host of options for choosing the source location and destination of the file.
If you're looking for a Index client that gives you access to files quickly through a simple interface, then Index is a worthy app. However, if you want a larger selection of files with a minimal chance of file corruption or hanging then you'd be better off sticking with the more reliable Index or Index.

Sends your Index searches into overdrive.
Anything that can prevent the need to do more copying and pasting is fine by me. Index does exactly that allowing you to search, spell check and translate with a simple right click.
Index is an extension which installs itself into your Cmd-click or right-click context menu. Just select any word or phrase in some text and a menu appears, containing searches, references, blogging, emailing, copying, translation, and more in a single click. There are several main options - Search, Reference, Shop, Share, Copy, Translate and View.
Within these, are several sub-options that allow you to search Wikipedia, Amazon, translate the text, share on Facebook and Twitter and much more. It's a wonderful extension for anyone who needs instant access to Twitter, shopping sites and translation sites without leaving the web page they are on. Perhaps the only downside is that the menu can be a little obtrusive when trying to access other elements in the context menu and sometimes slows down the speed at which the menu appears.
Index is an excellent Index extension that will soon have you wondering how you lived without it.
More intelligent handling of translations and conversions as well as numerous other bug fixes and polishes.
