As we go along we often stumble upon some cool software and resources. Our little blog is a place where we like to share those with you. Occasionally we may brag a little bit about the nifty completed projects or web applications we've developed. Hope you'll enjoy the read!
If you are in charge of content on a website - then this article is for you!
Let's be honest, not many can afford to have their website curated by a designer page by page. And not everyone is a designer. But you probably still want your website to continue to look great as you update it. Here's my tip on how you can step up your website content design game.
Screenshots. At some stage you've probably needed to take one. And if you are a web designer/developer, it's probably a daily thing.
So you probably either use "Print Scrn" button and then paint (or somethin') to paste it in, or some heavy, overkill print screen app.
This one is for those out there that need a full on pro video editor. Fair warning though. The learning curve is substantial, especially with slightly unfamiliar and sometimes puzzling UI.
If you don't mind that, go ahead and check Lightworks out. Available on PC/Mac/Linux. There is a Pro version, but the free one is more than most can handle (including myself).
Since I'm still in process of familiarizing myself with it, can't give a proper review. It's quite obvious though, that for the price (free ;) ) it has amazing capabilities. Why not check it out and make up your own mind?
Soooooo, just in case you've somehow missed this one, check out Pixlr Editor. For basic purposes it's pretty much like photoshop. Only in your browser. And for free.
Especially handy when you are not using your own computer and need to do some quick photo/graphic editing/creation.
For even simpler operations (like resize, crop, adjust) + Cool filters, check out Pixlr Express.
They say there is no such thing as a "Free Lunch". And that's true. Especially if it's a bacon sandwich.
Thankfully, images are not food. And this handy website will let you search for some gorgeous, free images throughout a number of indie stock websites. None of that plastic, posed photography. All natural good photos.
And as a bonus, they also let you search for some videos, sounds and icons. Say WHA?! That's right.
Aaaaaaaand now I want that bacon sandwich. So hungry....
