Picasa – Still The Best & Most Versatile Photo Manager Available

How many photos would you say you have? More than a hundred? Six hundred? A thousand? Pictures are a big part of all of our lives, but there is else something which is equally important and that is where those precious pictures are stored. You likely keep the majority of them on your computer (although more and more, we are relying on smartphones). But what happens when you add them to your computer? Do you organize them?

MyImgur Lets You Use The Best Image Host Right From Your Desktop [Windows]

Hugely thanks to internet superpower Reddit, Imgur is definitely regarded as the web’s most elite all-purpose image host. The website’s emergence took a huge chunk out of similar sites like Tinypic. Imgur just does free image hosting better. The look and feel of the uploading interface is so much nicer than other sites in the same class and it’ll definitely help when you aren’t barraging users with ads.

Paint.NET: The Best Image Editor Available That You Should Download

We all edit images to some degree. Whether it’s a simple crop or resize, or maybe just adding some text, it’s nice to have an image editor that is reliable, fast, easy to navigate and assists you in getting the job done quickly. There are a lot of fancy image editors available such as the well-known Adobe Photoshop and even the quite popular GIMP. These are full-fledge image editors however, and often more than what the average user needs.

Have Fun Taking Photos With Cheese Photo Booth [Linux]

Taking pictures is always a great way to keep memories, wherever you are. They’re also a fantastic way to spend some time and bond with friends and family. However, taking ordinary pictures with a camera or webcam can get pretty boring after a while. Mac OS X’s photo booth program can get pretty interesting with all of the possible effects that you can select, but what about Linux? Thankfully there’s a fairly popular application which gets the job done.

Give Instagram A Break And Take PicsArt For A Spin On Your Android

Yes, Instagram isn’t the only game in town. We may or not may be able to give up on your love for Instagram, but that shouldn’t stop us from getting around our tunnel vision and looking at some other really good mobile photo editors (or photo enhancers as I call them). PicsArt is an Android photo editor that not only deserves a good hard look, but in my opinion it is a photo app that should find a permanent corner on your smartphone.

5 Uniquely Creative Photo Apps For The iPhone

A recent study suggests 1/3 of all photos are taken using an iPhone.

Instead, let’s take a look at some of the more uniquely creative ways you can enhance your photos on the iPhone, such as adding text, making a one panel cartoon, taking a 3D photo, or making your scene look like it’s just a model diorama.

There are apps to make you fat, apps to make you look like a zombie and apps that will give your picture that hipster look and feel we all seem to love oh so much. Just a quick peek on the photography section of the App Store will show you that it is a breeding ground for some of the dumbest photo applications in the history of humankind. However, they are not all asinine.

Give Your Smartphone Photos a dSLR Look With Free AfterFocus App [Android & iOS]

When you look at a photo taken with a smartphone, one thing makes it easy to tell apart from a photo taken with a serious camera – depth of field. Photos taken with a dSLR often have somewhat blurry backgrounds, and the object of the photo is sharply focused, popping into view. AfterFocus is an app for Android and iPhone that promises to deliver the same look to your smartphone photos.

Save for a Rainy Day: The Top 6 Instagram Alternatives You Really Should Try [Android & iOS]

Instagram has been in the news non-stop these past two weeks. It started with the launch of its much anticipated Android app, and continued with the subsequent acquisition by Facebook. Both moves created heated reactions from Instagram users, which were not always positive. I only recently got to try Instagram, and although it’s a fun little app, I wasn’t blown away.

Take & Share Screenshots At Lightning Speed With ScreenSnapr [Windows]

The old process of saving and sharing a screenshot was a tedious and annoying one. Typically, it’d involve pressing the Print Screen key, opening up an image editor such as Paint, saving the screenshot, and then heading over to a service like Tinypic or Imgur to upload and be able to share that screenshot with others. When I discovered ScreenSnapr, it’s sort of like the clouds opened up in the sky.

3 Techniques for Using Eye Manipulation Effects in Photoshop

One of the most difficult aspects of a picture, both to capture in a photograph and to correct little blemishes, are the eyes. Below are three relatively simple ways to touch up the eyes of a picture’s subject, arranged in increasing difficulty: removing red glares, taking care of bags under the eyes, and changing the eye color entirely.

The Google logo is recognized the world over. It’s a logo that many people see on a daily basis as they make the Google homepage their first port of call in exploring the wider web. It’s simple and yet iconic at the same time. But no one wants to see the same old logo staring back at them every time they search for something online, do they? Google doesn’t think so.
