Try this easy and powerful online photo editing application…

November 20, 2014

I have tried and tested numerous online photo (graphic) editors and the one that I am finding that is tried, tested and true is iPiccy… This editor appears to have been around awhile, with my last review being back in 2011 when it was in beta. Back then iPiccy sported over 30 creative editing tools and now it sports over 110 creative editing tools. Since then iPiccy has matured quite nicely.

What I really like about this editor is that it runs very nicely in the browser and has an exhaustive list of editing tools that is normally found in some of the higher end software based editors that you would normally install on your computer. Give it a try and I think you will be impressed. iPiccy is FREE and registration is not required (unless to want to take advantage of photo layers and the collages).

Brother Creative Center – FREE Online Desktop Publishing Suite

October 28, 2014

I recently decided to go with a laser printer from Brother (Model: HL- 2270DW) to meet my printing needs and to save money on what I was spending for inkjet printer cartridges. While checking out their web site I came across an online desktop publishing suite, that they maintain, called Brother Creative Center that is completely FREE.

Their are two project sections to the Brother Creative Center: Business Center and Home Center. Both have numerous templates to get you started and both have the ability to save whatever projects you are working on. Really nice setup on something that you don’t hear much about…

Air Explorer – A Windows Based Software Application To Manage Your Online File Storage

October 22, 2014

Typically when we sign up for online file storage we are often given option to download software that will allow you to sync files locally with the online account. The problem with that, as in my case, I have multiple online accounts with multiple providers and do not want to burden down my computer with numerous software installs from these different providers.

To remedy this issue and to give full control in the management of your files in the cloud, at multiple (popular) providers, check out Air Explorer.

Air Explorer

Air Explorer is a Windows based program that appears to be relatively new (at least to me) that has the ability to connect to multiple online cloud servers. Air Explorer currently supports OneDrive, Google Drive, Box, Dropbox, Mega, Copy, Mediafire, Yandex, and WebDAV. When I tested Air Explorer it effortlessly connected to each of my online accounts and appeared to be quite fast.

Air Explorer Interface

What I like about the Air Explorer concept is that I can centrally and directly manage (move, copy, delete, share) my files and can even copy files from one provider to another provider. Air Explorer provides a dual paned interface that gives you the ability to easily perform the various file operations.

Features:

Optionally Air Explorer can encrypt your files when you upload them to the cloud

Sets up multiple accounts from the same server

You can synchronize folders between any cloud or your computer

Copy/Paste between cloud servers

Pause and continue uploads and downloads

Air Exlorer can share files

Centralize search of your files across all the clouds


Quick Note – The Brain Fart Class Of Note Keeping

October 13, 2014

In the heavyweight class of note keeping apps, we have Evernote and OneNote that are exceptional in that they can perform a higher level of note keeping that are best suited when researching something or we want to store something of importance (for future reference).

In the lightweight class of note keeping we have Google Keep, that is exceptional in that you can keep notes in a manner for which we keep sticky notes (for grocery lists, to do lists, reminders, etc…), that are at a lower level of importance, but we feel necessary in order for us to exist.

Each of these heavy weight and light weight apps can be quickly accessed from all of our computing platforms (such as the Windows and the Android platforms); but, did you know that there is another class of note keeping called the “brain fart” class of notekeeping?

The brain fart a class of notekeeping is where you need to make notes quickly (on the fly), as they come to mind and are only around for the short term. This is the class of note keeping where another note keeping app called Quick Note comes into the picture.  Quick Note is like having a piece of paper and pencil with you at all times; and, in appearance, Quick Note looks just like the canary yellow ruled line notepads that we all have used at one time or another.

Quick Note

Quick Note is installed as a Google Chrome App that you can make a shortcut to so that your Quick Note notepad is easily and quickly accessible at all times. To use Quick Note you need to sign up for a diigo.com account so that you never lose your notes, as they are then synchronized (and stored) to your diigo.com account.

Quick Note is especially designed for lightweight note-taking. You can use it as a simple notepad,  scratchpad, clipboard, or to record todo lists. 

★ Quick to add and edit ~ Add note in the app or from right-click menu

★ Quick to search ~ Instant search for all notes

★ Quick to access ~ One-click to access your notes

★ Sync to cloud and access your notes anywhere


Nimbus Screenshot – Probably The Best Browser Screen Capture Extension In The Google Chrome Store

October 12, 2014

As a blog writer it is necessary to have a good screen capture application available. Probably the best screen capture extension in the Google Chrome Store right now is Nimbus Screenshot: Capture and Annotate.

Nimbus Screenshot: Capture and Annotate

Nimbus Screenshot fits in well with ScribeFire, that is also a Chrome browser extension, that I use to draft my blog articles. With both of these extensions in place, all articles that I compose are performed directly in my browser (Google Chrome and/or Chromium) making my writing experience much more pleasant, efficient, and faster.

Nimbus Screenshot gives you the ability to capture a whole Web page (snipping tool), a part of it or the whole browser window. Built in is an optional editor, with a very user-friendly interface, where you can edit your captures, crop your images; AND, add text (or comments), lines, arrows, circles, rectangles, etc… When done you can save your screenshots to your Google Drive or Nimbus account. The free Nimbus account allows you to save up to 100 mbs of data a month.

As a side note, which I need to explore further; Nimbus also offers, in a addition to the Google Chrome browser extension, a screen capture app for the Windows, Android, and Firefox platforms.


Convert Your Favorite Videos From YouTube, Dailymotion, Vevo, and Clipfish to MP3, MP4 And More…

August 27, 2014

Looking for a way to convert your favorite music videos to MP3? Look no further…  I have been on the hunt for an online YouTube video to MP3 converter and found quite a few; HOWEVER, I finally settled with a FREE service called convert2mp3.net – Online Video Converter. This service is cloud based, which means everything can be done to make the conversion by using your web browser, which means “no software to install”. I think the things that impressed me the most with convert2mp3.net is the built in search component, how fast the conversion takes place and that the end result of the conversion is excellent; PLUS, unlike many of the other services I tried, there are no surprise pop-up ad pages (that looked pretty shady to me).

 

convert2mp3

Search for a video on YouTubeDailymotionVevo or Clipfish and copy & paste the link (URL) of the video in the first box, select the file type and press “convert”. Alternatively you can search for a Youtube video directly. Just enter the video title in the second form and press “search”
