Alphapun.ch – Most images in websites are transparent so you can put them on any background. However, the transparent image also leaves a large space around it which means you cannot interact through the image. Alphapun.ch is a handy image effect that creates a mask of the opaque part of the image then punches through the alpha channel. Read more: Alphapun.ch: Handy Effect For Transparent Images

  • IndieByChoice

    Thanks for the mention. Be sure to check our blog for site updates and artist interviews.

    how did bit defender make it but norton or kaspersky didn’t?

    • Tina

      Yozman, this is not a Best Of AntiVirus Software list. These are just some of the coolest websites and tools posted in our Directory yesterday. We post a list like that every day.

    • Yozman

      right I was just wondering why you chose bit defender over the other ones, it’s not really a new program, nor is it even free… (besides for the 30 day trial) so what raises it over the others?

    • Tina

      It doesn’t. As I said, it’s not a comparison article, just a list of random tools, with BitDefender happening to be in this collection. We had free licenses available. Unfortunately, they are all gone now.

    Looking for an inexpensive or free programo easily add sparkles to one’s own pictures, other than Blingeef
