An Advanced Online Image Editor That Is Easy

February 27, 2012

Just like the online file converters I recently featured, online image editors are everywhere, which makes it hard to decide which one to go with. Factor in that the learning curve to master an image editor is quite challenging that makes most people avoid them.  Well don’t…

Today, I want to show you an online image editor, called Fotoflexer, that to me is advanced (rich in features), but very easy (and fun) to use.

Fotoflexer

For an online editor, Fotoflexer has all of the bases covered. You can do everything from fixing your photo or image to adding effects, fonts, shapes, etc… You can even get crazy with Fotoflexer by applying morphing, distortion and doodling effects.

Fotoflexer

The best way to get a handle on using Fotoflexer is to visit the website and either upload a test photo or use a photo they provide.  A really cool feature (that I like) is that I can either save my finished product to my computer or I can save it to an online photo storage and sharing service (such as Picasa, Photobucket, MySpace, and others).  In my case, I use Picasa. To take advantage of the his feature, you must sign up for an account with Fotoflexer (which is FREE).

After using Fotoflexer, I can honestly say that for an online photo and image editing program, this one is a keeper.  Fotoflexer can do it all and most importantly, it is easy to use and understand.

An Ever-Growing Collection of FREE Online Jigsaw Puzzles

April 12, 2011

If you love jigsaw puzzles then you will be surely entertained and challenged with TheJigSawPuzzles.com. There is nothing to install.  Just visit the site in your web browser and select your puzzle background from over hundreds of puzzles. You can even select how many puzzle pieces you want to scramble.

TheJigsawPuzzles

The cool factors with TheJigSawPuzzles.com is that once you select your puzzle, you can go full screen, pull the pieces sidewards, change the background color, turn the sound on and off, get hints, pause the timer, move the edge pieces for an easier start and can select multiple pieces by dragging the mouse around the pieces.

TheJigsawPuzzles

You can sign up for an account; however, not necessary. By signing up you can make your own puzzles from your own pictures. You can upload up to 8 megabytes at one time. No individual file may be larger than 2 megabytes. I know that does not sound like a lot and it’s not; however, from my testing when I uploaded a large picture file, the site automatically scaled down the image to a kilobyte size without affecting the clarity of the image.

TheJigSawPuzzles.com is one of the best online jigsaw puzzles I have experienced.  Here’s to hoping that it continues to get better.

Diigo – An Awesome Personal Research Tool

February 7, 2011

Recently I have been focused on the cloud based bookmarking and notekeeping services such as Evernote and SpringPad. Everyday I find something new and this week I have been testing out another online service called Diigo. Now Diigo, as I soon found out, is not something new; but is new to me. As matter of fact Diigo has been around for approximately 5 years and actually started out as a social bookmarking service similar to Delicious. It has evolved into something very special and very powerful.

Diigo

Recently Diigo came out with a new beta version (V5.0) of their service, that in my opinion, is really making it shine. I currently have lined up on my PC, Delicious, Evernote, SpringPad and Diigo.  For the life of me, I keep going back to the beta of Diigo and have come to the conclusion that Diigo is now my go to app for gathering and storing information I find on the internet.

Here’s Why?

First off, it is more than your typical bookmarking service.  It is a conglomeration of various research utilities (in one package) that gives you the ability to collect and highlight information with powerful browser annotation and note keeping tools; the ability to remember, organize, tag and bookmark your information; and, the ability to share that information and knowledge with others in a knowledge sharing social network. To be honest with my readers, Diigo is one of the best personal research and bookmarking tools I have ever experienced. It is simplistic, loads fast and is just plain awesome (in my opinion).  It does not have all the eye candy that you may see with some of the other services, but it gets the job done and does it fast.

I think the favorite part of Diigo that I like the most is that any bookmarks that I have saved, there is a link, adjacent to the bookmarks that allows me to preview (load) the actual web page without leaving the Diigo site.

Diigo provides a browser add-on that can really improve your research productivity. As you read on the web, instead of just bookmarking, you can highlight portions of web pages that are of particular interest to you. You can also attach sticky notes to specific parts of web pages. Unlike most other web “highlighters” that merely clip, Diigo highlights and sticky notes are persistent in the sense that whenever you return to the original web page, you will see your highlights and sticky notes superimposed on the original page, just what you would expect if you highlighted or wrote on a book!

Moreover, all the information — highlighted paragraphs, sticky notes, and the original url — are saved on Diigo servers, creating your personal digest of the web, your own collection of highlights from the web – ones that are meaningful to you! You can easily search, access, sort and share this collection from any PC or even iPhone.

I encourage anyone who is into blogging, research, and information gathering to give this one try. Best part about Diigo is that you can sign up for a FREE account (which I use) or can go all out with a PREMIUM account (with more bells and whistles).
