Finding the Best PNG Image Compression Tool

Any image that has a smaller size will load on a web page faster, fit into an email message more easily, and transfer across the Internet more quickly. Compressed images can speed up the entire page load time of your site, and that’s really important when you’re looking to design a high quality web page that people aren’t annoyed to visit because the images take so long to load! In this article, I’ll test out four PNG compression apps, provide the results for each case, and then draw a conclusion as to which one performed the best.

Want To Stand Out On Instagram? Edit Your Photos With The Amazing Handy Photo

There’s one thing to be said for Instagram: it got us all into a photo-editing craze. Not that editing photos is anything new, but with Instagram in the picture, everyone wants to be editing photos on their smartphones, and if possible, not using those same old Instagram filters everyone else does. I’m not saying there aren’t any good apps out there. My go-to photo editor, Snapseed, is both free and extremely good, and Aviary is another great option. But is that all there is? I was inclined to think so, when I came across Handy Photo (Google Play/iTunes).

Photoful Brings Instant Photo Management and Editing to Your iPhone Camera Roll

I have written before about the frustration of managing and processing photos in the Camera Roll of the iPhone. It’s difficult to manage and copy photos to albums, multiple images must be selected one at a time and photos you place in an album are deleted when removed from the Camera Roll. With the upcoming release of iOS 7, a new Photos app will do a better job of managing photos in collections by date and location. This sounds very good, but if you would like to get these features on your iPhone now, you can with Photoful (Free).

Photoshop Is Overkill: Edit Your Images With These Free Chrome Apps And Extensions

Although Photoshop is a great program, it has its drawbacks. Photoshop is not only very expensive, it also has too many controls for what you probably need. There are a lot of editors you could use – some on the desktop and others on the web. Today we’re going to look at some of the best and free online editors that also happen to be Chrome apps and extensions.

Sometimes you just want to fix up a picture without all of the baggage and learning curves that come with powerhouse image editors like Photoshop and GIMP.

We’re giving away 10 copies of Photo Commander 11 worth a total of $500 for free!

Turn Your Friends Into Freaks With Morfo

Photos are fun – the rise of successful snap-and-filter apps and services such as Instagram and its “fake Polaroid junkies” are proof of this – but sometimes it’s possible that we don’t fully realise the potential of the images we snap, particularly on digital cameras and smartphones. I stumbled across Morfo back in 2010, shortly after the release of Windows Phone 7.

Its clean interface, awesome community, and integration with social networks make it one of the best places on the Internet to look for and post your images.

Using Paint.NET? Make It Even Better With These Great Plugins

Have you ever needed to do computer artwork that involved more than simple crops and resizes? For a long time, your only real options were Paintshop Pro and Adobe Photoshop, although the rise of GIMP has provided users with a powerful free alternative. But in some cases, those tools are too powerful. What if you want something in the middle? That’s where Paint.NET comes in.

Adobe Photoshop Express for Android: It’s Free, But Is It Any Good?

Photoshop is not just a strong brand. In the world of photo manipulation, it’s pretty much the only brand. When your product’s name becomes a verb (“photoshopping” images), that says something. But there’s a reason it’s such a strong brand – on the desktop, it is very, very good. So naturally, when looking to review the free Android version of Photoshop called Photoshop Express, I was expecting to be wowed by something at least as awesome as Snapseed.

I’ll be the first to admit that I’m not a Photoshop wizard or anything even close to impressive when it comes to editing photos. Like everyone should though, I know the basics. I’m proud to say that I can set an image’s transparency, crop, resize, and even convert between image file formats. It’s not much to brag about, but it’s required for the job. But what happens when you’ve got a whole folder full of images that need resized?

3 Desktop Color Picker Applications To Help You Pick The Perfect Shade

“Creative” is a word I’ll never use to describe myself! Not visually, at least. I’m proud of much of what I can do on the Internet, but when it comes to graphics and image editing, you won’t see me throwing out my two cents. However, I am very picky and a bit of a perfectionist. For years, I’ve been designing small websites and learning the basics of web design using CSS.

Echograph iPhone Review: Can This Cinemagraph App Steal The Throne From Cinemagram?

Cinemagraphs blend selective animation and a static image to create a unique looping scene, popularised using Photoshop to adapt famous film scenes into contemplative GIFs a few years ago. Since the concept is so promising, app developers have pounced on the idea after the original release of Cinemagram. There’s now a new contender for the throne in the form of Echograph, an app which on first glance is remarkably similar.

Need Multiple Sizes & Crops Of Your Images? Get Them In Seconds With SizzlePig

Several months ago, I told you about 7 free ways to batch edit your photos. While researching this post, I found many useful tools that can save you time when resizing, renaming, and editing multiple photos. Most of these tools were installed programs, and while they each come with many useful features, using them was confusing at times. Another problem with many of these tools is that you can’t use them to crop images.
