More Tech Tools I find helpful: Online Photo Editors and iframe creators

I thought I’d share a few more tech tools I like. You can read my previous post here.

In this post, I thought I’d share a few online photo editors. I think we are all familiar with Adobe Photoshop either by name or user experience. I have an older version I use. But I also like using online photo editors as well. Sometimes it just saves time.

Some of the sites listed may have a limited time use before you are asked to upgrade for a fee. 

Photo Editors

BeFunky

A friend was the one who told me about BeFunky. They also have an app as well.

This site offers basic tools you can edit a photo create a collage or create a project. You are able to save our final product to a BeFunky Account (if you create one), Google Drive, Dropbox, or your device be it a computer or smartphone. You can also save it to Facebook as well.

BeFunky has an upgrade named BeFunky Plus. This has more features you can use for a set fee. 

PicMonkey

I’ve used picMonkey a few times you can see an image I created here.

PicMonkey has the same or similar options that BeFunky does. You can save your project to your device or share it as well. 

The only drawback I found with PicMonkey is it is a limited time use. In this case, 7-day free trial before you are asked to upgrade. PicMonkey also has an app.

PhotoJoiner

Once again like the previously mentioned sites, PhotoJoiner offers a photo editor an collage creator. That’s how I found the site in the first place. You can see the collage I created for Pal here

So far PhotoJoiner seems to be free. I don’t know if this will change over time but it’s a great site. I liked that once you create your project you can download it to your computer or share it via many popular social sites. 

IFrame Generators

I came across these iframe generators while trying to fix my sidebar I had to remove the iframes I created because it violated Tumblr’s usage policy. Even with that, i can still share the info anyway.

IFrame Code Generator

It’s very basic and allows you to set your link and desired settings.  

after you add your info to the generator you can preview your iframe before copying the code and pasting it into your desired location. You may want to check your sites violation terms just to be safe prior to creating your iframe.

I used this site to create these two iframes. Again I had to remove them today (12-13-17) but you still get the point.

Free Tech Tools I find helpful: Photo compression tools

image

I recently ran a test using Google to test my blogs mobile speed. You can test your own page here. The final test results also offered suggestions on how to improve your webpage. You can also have a full report emailed to you free of charge. As I read the results on how I could improve my blogs speed I also did some searches on the info provided. During my searches, I found some great info from other blogs sharing their thoughts on image compression products. I also found a few of these on my own while trying to better organize my blog.

If you’re like me free is usually the way to go. I don’t mind buying software but I do like trying it out beforehand. I also don’t want to spend a lot of money on software I won’t use often. 

I will admit some of the products I share may have a limited time use or may have an upgrade in services for a fee.As for now, these are free.

Photo Compressor

You can read the full definition of what the product does here

I will be sharing ones I found for Windows. I know there are many that are offered for Mac users. 

Online photo compression site

Compressor.io

image


This site is great because you can upload an image and compress it while you’re on the go. You can also save it to various sites such as Google Drive or Dropbox. You can also save the photo to your computer, phone or tablet as well. 

Here’s an example of a picture I uploaded.

image

As you can see it gives you the options of where you’d like to save your file with the change in file size along with the compression percentage. 

This is a great tool to use if you need to upload single images.

Caesium 

image

This software is great because it allows you to compress individual images all at once. You can also compress entire image folders as well. The website offers a few other products as well. I liked that this software is free and it has a simple layout. 

It’s very simple to use and has a basic layout. Here’s an example.

image

Caesium allows you to leave both the original file alongside the compressed version. You can select the percentage of the compression as well. There is also a resizing function too. 

Depending on the number of files compression speed may vary. 

I hope to create a video showing you how the compression tools work. So be on the lookout for that. 

In my next post, I’m going to share a few photo tools I’ve used along with two iframe generates I’ve come across.

Have you used either of the above-mentioned photo compressors? If so share your thoughts. Also, don’t forget to share some of your favorite photo compression tools with me as well.

How to Make Glittered TV Trays

craftychica:

These glittered TV trays are the MOST! I wanted something bright and sparkly for the season and took some regular black TV folding tables and gave them a brilliant makeover! I am living my best life, don’t judge. I don’t care if it is December or July. life is more dramatic with glittered furniture.

The key is to achieve a dense, uniform look to the glitter and there are a few tricks for that…

SEP LIQUID STICKER NAIL

image

I was lucky enough to be selected to review this product a few weeks back. I was sent a full-size free sample from 0.8 Liter USA and SEP Beauty. 

For those of you who may not be familiar with 0.8 Liter let me give share a little more info regarding the site. 0.8 Liter is a site you can join for free. They showcase items from Asia and the US as well. You can apply to review items or you can purchase items for a small fee. This varies by the item. Some start at around $3.99. I created a walkthrough of the site a few weeks ago. You can check it out here.  FYI reviewer selection is random. You just need to keep applying or try (buying) items you like. I personally haven’t bought anything yet so I don’t know how that process works. 

image

This picture gives you a better view of the color shade. As you can see it’s green. SEP LIQUID STICKER NAIL  is sold in a variety of colors. The options that 0.8L had were limited so I figured I’d try green. 

Well, I was very happy when I learned I was approved for the product review opportunity. 

The Test

I tried the SEP product the day it arrived. It is like a regular nail polish you will need to shake it. The info on the bottle was in Korean but I went to SEP’s website and found out how to use the product. 

SEP suggests you apply two coats of polish for easier removal. So I set to work painting my nails. 

image

The brush is a bit smaller than usual nail polishes I’ve used. It does give you a nice even coat, however. As you can see my nails were very colorful It was a little runny at first but after I shook the bottle it seemed to solidify a bit. 

Drying time may vary depending on the weather. The day I did my nails it was warm so I think they dried within 10 minutes or so. 

Once the LIQUID STICKER NAIL dries you can peel off any excess that was on your fingers. 

The Results

Here’s what my nails looked like once I was done.

image

SEP LIQUID STICKER NAIL is shiny and it dries almost like vinyl in my opinion. I will add that the STICKER NAIL does have a bit of a smell too it. it’s not too harsh but it is noticeable. 

image

In this photo, you can see how the STICKER NAIL shaped to my nails and how it has a bit of a sheen to it. Being that the polish is easy to remove you may have some chipping quickly. I know I did. 

I also had a few of my nails lose polish while I was in the shower. I had thought my nails were fully dry but I guess they weren’t. The polish peeled off in one piece due to the warm water. 

image

This was no big deal I just went ahead and repainted my nails. 

My Final Thoughts 

I can say this much SEP LIQUID STICKER NAIL is a unique product. It did its job for a short period. I ended up keeping the polish on for nearly a full day after I took the above pictures. By 2 or 3 p.m. the following day I’d lost polish again. The nice thing is that it peels off in the shape of your nail.

image

All in all this polish would be great for a night out or if you just need a short-term nail color. This may vary from person to person. I found it easy to use and easy to remove. I did love that I could peel it off so no need for nail polish remover. I was happy with the product’s ease of use.
