Tech Tips and Tricks & Advice – written in plain English.

A Gift For You

Folks,
To help celebrate this special weekend, I have a nice surprise.

PearlMountain Image Converter is a photo converter as well as batch image converter, which helps you convert images to other formats, resize, rotate, crop, add watermark, apply effects and add border to thousands of images at a time.

Some of the features include:

•    Convert thousands of files at once in batch mode.
•    Supports the most popular image formats: BMP, JPEG, TIFF, RAW, PNG, GIF, TGA, and PSD, and almost all image formats.
•    Save operations that you usually use as profiles and bring convenience to you in the future.
•    Convert between many different image file formats.
•    Resize image for any different use, such as for web, e-mail, photo printing, Facebook, MySpace, mobile phone, ipod/ipad/iphone, etc., with optimum quality.
•    Add image and text watermark for Image Copyright Protection
•    Adjust image brightness, contrast and saturation in batch to make your images look more special.
•    Apply borders to your images.
•    Crop photos, removing unwanted areas.

Product info page: http://www.batchimageconverter.com/image-converter/

Due to time constraints, I only had time to play with test this utility a little bit. So I can only tell you it worked, and that I enjoyed the animated GIFF feature (aka “no product review here.”) And for me, there was zero “learning curve”, as I have used this type of graphics program before. But even if you have not, learning how to make optimum use of this photo/image tool should not take long.. maybe, mere minutes. (The link above has a illustrated How To. Take a peek, and see for yourself.)

PearlMountain has generously donated ten licenses to me, and I have  had the pleasure to give them away – to the first ten people to leave who left a comment with a valid (not Facebook) email (so I can send you the license keycode). This software retails for $29.90.

Happy Mother’s Day! (And thank you, PearlMountain!)

*** Update: Sorry Folks, but that’s all the licenses I have to give away — for now. ***

You can download a full-featured “trial” version, here, if you’d like. It will put a watermark on any output files, but otherwise performs just like the paid version.

  4. A comment… :)

    I have been in the garden all day. Think the sun fried my brain.

    Thanks, Paul and Pearl Mountain, if you still have one left.

    Got one for everyone…Please share this with all. The Makeuseof manuals are the best. Happy Mother’s Day.

    The world wide web is supposed to be just that: world wide. Sometimes it simply isn’t, however: there is government censorship blocking certain sites in certain countries and corporate censorship keeping you from accessing their content unless you’re in another. Want to get around these and other pitfalls of the global Internet? Download “Information Liberation: Your Guide to the International Web”, the latest manual from MakeUseOf.com. By author Jim Rion, this guide is a must-have for anyone looking for access to the complete Internet.

    Few would argue that the Internet has not changed the world dramatically. Every day we see how free, instantaneous communication influences politics, social change, and daily interactions at a fundamental level. But even with all of this, there still remains a certain level of provincialism on the net – Americans stick to American websites; Japanese stick to Japanese websites; you get the idea.

    Part of this, of course, is due to a simple language barrier; English is an international language, but it is by no means the only one. To some extent this artificial division of the web is by design. Media producers, like the BBC, often insist on restricting access to their products to certain geographical regions to protect their business models. Distributors (e.g. iTunes) are complicit in this, or even instigate it. Even worse, some governments insist on restricting Internet communication and blocking access to international websites.

    This guide, then, is a small attempt at helping people deal with all of these problems. The Internet should connect people all over the world, not divide them. Whether you are a backpacker trying to check your email from a hostel in Denmark, or a college student trying to get past the Great Firewall of China, I hope there is some helpful information in here for you.

    This complete guide to the International web will show you:

    Which governments around the world restrict Internet access
    Whether its ethical to bypass such restrictions, and which tools to use
    Encrypting your web browsing and email for secure communications
    How to find Internet access while traveling by knowing where to look
    Buying a computer while abroad: an ex-pat’s guide
    Setting up your computer to display non-alphabetic languages
    Getting the most out of translation tools
    Accessing media blocked in your country using VPN and more.

    DOWNLOAD Information Liberation: Your Guide to the International Web

    Psst! Password: makeuseof

    Even though you got the password..this manual has too much info NOT to share….SHARE IT!

    Oh, and if you want to read a “hot under the collar” comment..read Lavender’s.
