Skitch for Windows

A while back I “gushed” about Skitch and hoped that a Windows version would be available soon. Well, it arrived a short time ago and I wanted to let folks know. It is very similar to the Mac version that I talked about and it even has the incredibly valuable “Drag Me” feature. As I

Skitch

I used to write a lot of posts about tools I have been using. Back when I did that I was using Windows computers. I tried to be conscious of Mac users and not recommend too many programs that were Windows only. Now that I’m on a Mac, I think about it the other way

Picasa2flickr

I love Picasa, a free photo management tool, and Flickr, a great (also free) online photo sharing/storage service. Picasa, now owned by Google, does have its own photo sharing service and it is quite good. However, I give Flickr the nod because it has more professional features that I use and seems more mature in

Flickr & Picnik

I suppose that Flickr would be the sweet, lovely butterfly and Picnik provides the sting as the bee. The marriage is finally consumated. You will now find an "Edit Photo" button on your Flickr pictures, and that editor is the Picnik engine, which opens up a new section for you to edit to your heart’s

Picnik’s YouTube Video

For those of you who haven’t heard of Picnik, here is a little promotional video that those folks have put up on YouTube. If you store your photos online at sites like Flickr, Photobucket, Picasa Web Albums, or even Facebook, then why not use an online photo editor. The Picknik folks are doing what looks

Are You Ready To Paint?

As I prepare for a new position as “New Media Specialist”, this is the sort of groundbreaking application that I’d like to highlight. Mac fan-boys (and girls) will be so jealous!
