Developing color schemes can be difficult at times, but with an online service like ColorSuckr you can provide it with an image to have it pull out the top 12 colors. It has a range of features to make generating the color schemes from any image extremely easy.
The free and portable Radical Image Optimization Tool (RIOT) has been an app I've recommended for a few years now (I think I've been using it since about 2008). As the name suggests it focuses on doing one thing, and doing it well: optimizing images. It can compress, resize, adjust, and convert your images in a way that leaves you in control of the end result.
Like many things in life the art of taking photos can be a lot of fun, but the aftermath of organizing the images isn't always that exciting. It's especially daunting if you have thousands of photos scattered around in obscure locations on your computer that you always meant to sort, but never quite got around to.
Sharing content, particularly photos, has exploded in popularity over the last decade. It's easy, it's fun, and as a result, many websites offer services that help you create photo collages. One standout in this area is called Photovisi.
Welcome to the WrapUp by CyberNet. This is a collection of news stories, downloads, and tips that we have collected over the last few days, but never got around to writing about.
If you've ever toyed around with any digital camera for five minutes, you know that the pictures it takes often look different than what you saw in real-life. Common complaints include photos being too bright/dark or having an odd-looking color balance.
I'm sure many of you remember the "Power Toys" from the Windows XP days, and you probably have at least one of them installed if you're still running XP. My favorite was always the ability to quickly resize images with a simple right-click on the photo(s) from within Windows Explorer. It was fast, simple, and did exactly what you wanted it to.
It was a tough decision, but I decided to upgrade my iPhone 3G to the iPhone 3GS. I wasn't sure if the new features would be enough to justify the purchase, but I figured I should be able to sell my iPhone 3G on eBay and recoup a good chunk of the cost. So I pre-ordered the phone, and got it delivered to me last Friday morning.

There has been a lot of focus on photos the last few years as digital cameras become cheaper and more widespread, and many of us are carrying cameras around in our pockets thanks to our cellphones. The great news is that this digital media revolution has made it so that almost anyone can look like a true artist with very little work.
I've always felt like there hasn't been a perfect tool out there for the average person who wants to shoot panoramic shots, and doesn't want to spend ages assembling them on their machine. One of the last tools that we covered on the site was Hugin, but you could spend hours tweaking settings trying to get things just right. It just wasn't something the most people would want to fiddle with.
Microsoft offers a lot of free apps, but the problem is that finding the programs isn't always easy to do. We're always on the hunt for free programs put out by Microsoft, and when we stumbled across Microsoft Pro Photo we definitely had to look into it.
Ryan and I got to talking about traveling recently and how we snap hundreds of pictures when we take trips thanks to digital cameras. Back when we used a 35mm camera, very few photos were taken simply because it was limiting, and sometimes a hassle to get them developed.
Panoramic photos seem to be becoming more common these days as people carry cameras with them wherever they go. In the past we've shown you tools like AutoStitch and Windows Live Photo Gallery that make assembling panoramic photos effortless, but the free Hugin program is much more customizable.
It was just a few days ago that we got an idea of where Microsoft's Photosynth technology could potentially go in the future thanks to a project called "Finding Paths through the World's Photos." In the article, Ryan mentioned that the project involved some pretty awe-inspiring technology, which rem [...]
We always like coming across an interesting free application... especially when it sets out to accomplish a lot of what a paid application does. That's exactly the first impression I got when using Artweaver. They don't come out and say they are trying to emulate Photoshop, but they don't need to.
Microsoft has done a fantastic job with Windows Live Photo Gallery, and it's definitely become my favorite way to manage photos. There's been no mention as to when the next version of Windows Live Photo Gallery will be coming out, but one thing that you can look forward to is facial recognition.
Panoramic images have been something that I've been trying to do more often, and a lot of that is due to how easy it is to stitch together multiple photos. Plus the new Windows Live Photo Gallery is capable of taking multiple photos and stitching them together to form a full panoramic shot as well. Once you have taken a marvelous panoramic photo you have to do it justice by showing it off.
As a consumer, would you rather have a camera in a phone or a phone in a camera? What we mean by that is, these days it seems phone manufacturers throw a camera in as a second thought and it's there, but not really quality. What if camera manufacturers were to take their quality cameras and include a phone with them? That's what Sony Ericsson is trying to do with the C905 Cyber-shot.
