Adobe Photoshop But Not

May 9, 2011

Hi guys,  just a quick post to tell you about a great online photo editing program that can be downloaded and is better than Pixlr!  It’s called GIMP, short for GNU Image Manipulation Program.

GIMP has capabilities for detailed image retouching, free-form drawing, resizing, editing, cropping photos, photomontages combining multiple images, converting between different image formats, and it can also be used to create basic animated images in the GIF format.  Best of all… it’s free!

Check it out and have fun playing with it – see link below:

Now here’s a funny video of a talking dog:

Wow Your Board with this Nifty Presentation App

January 19, 2011

Hey Folks,

Do you make a lot of presentations for work?  I used to make my presentations on PowerPoint until I discovered a great new site called Prezi.com.

Prezi…and i’m just going to cut & paste this from Wikipedia…

… is a web-based presentation application and storytelling tool that uses a single canvas instead of traditional slides. Text, images, videos and other presentation objects are placed on the infinite canvas and grouped together in frames. The canvas allows users to create non-linear presentations, where users can zoom in and out of a visual map. A path through different objects and frames can be defined, representing the order of the information to be presented. The presentation can be developed in a browser window, then downloaded so that an Internet connection is not needed when showing the presentation…

The only drawback I found was that when it came to saving my presentation the free version didn’t allow me to make it private. You can of course upgrade quite cheaply (approx £7/year).

Check it out and start making presentations that are fun and able to hold the attention of even the most ADD types.
