- iDVD; dated the best ever for creating great instant results
- Toast Titanium (with Blueray expansion) … don’t buy this in the appstore! Search for bundles again or go to https://bundlehunt.com Can be held than for $11.99 instead of the retail value.
- Best video player: http://www.videolan.org/vlc/index.html
- https://www.techsmith.com/snagit.html … worth the money from every angle you look at it.
- Prefer something free? Lightshot: http://prnt.sc/ … supports Mac/Windows browser extensions, free instant cloudhosting. Total awesomeness.
Best FREE image editors that rival photoshop?
GIMP? Sure I use that too sometimes; old habits die hard. But way better, easier and more powerful are:
- https://pixlr.com/editor/ … there’s a desktop equivalent too: https://pixlr.com/desktop
- https://www.canva.com … awesome for social media artwork
- http://www.online-image-editor.com … dated, but sometimes services a purpose
- http://www.photocollage.com/collage/ … magical tool! Give it a spin.
And for Windows specifically I highly recommend you to checkout http://www.photoscape.org/ps/main/index.php .. to do batch editing, create animated gifs, create fancy fonts on copyright free images, etc.
Compress your images to save space:
Have a wordpress blog?
Install 1 of these two (if you care about speed or SEO):
- https://wordpress.org/plugins/ewww-image-optimizer/ … also supports the new WebP format from Google.
Like to do fancy things with SEO tags/titles or watermarking your pics with a text or logo after having uploaded to wordpress? Without altering the original? 1 free plugin does it all: https://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-optimize-by-xtraffic/
Looking for copyright free artwork? Many places to go through. You could plug into the free istock library that comes with GetResponse for example: http://www.getresponse.com/index/tell-a-few … affiliate link. Btw did you checkout the new webinar platform that they launched a couple of weeks ago? So not only the best autoresponder on the planet, and easy leadcapture page creation but also doing webinars. Anyway free artwork combined with wordpress? Checkout this plugin: https://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-inject/ … extends your media library with flickr and a whole lot more. But wait! What happens if they take the image down? https://wordpress.org/plugins/image-teleporter/ . Don’t have wordpress hosting yet? Plenty of parties to choose from I’ve been working with this organisation for 2 years already: http://bit.do/ictoolsuite … affiliate link. Which offers so much more supercool stuff for only $25 per month.
And can go on for a couple of days. But this covers most of the basics for pretty much everybody.
Final tip? That you’ve seen in action already? You know how annoying it is right to not be able to share the link of your company or affiliate product on FB? http://bit.do to the rescue! It’s not only a link shortnener like bit.ly for example, but also a link cloacker, QR generator, advanced traffic statistics thingy. And it’s free.
Hmz … and that’s about it
