When I search for free photo editing software I always check its reviews. I want to know in advance an unbiased opinion on how to edit photos with a certain photo application. I look for information about technical requirements and drawbacks before I download any free software. Besides, I need good user guides, how-to videos, tips and tricks. To cut a long story short, a free photo software review is an indispensable thing for the right photo tool choice.

If you rack your brains about an unusual present an individually designed CD/DVD or Blu-ray discs might be the unconventional solution to the dilemma “what-to-present-the-person-with-who-has-everything”.
In fact, there are several opportunities to customize your disc surface. Earlier there were special discs with soft cover and special printers that were specifically designed for this kind of discs. You could also buy extra felt pens to decorate discs, but I met too many complaints about their smearing effect. Laser printers for disc surfaces do their job well but I wouldn’t call it 100% hand-made disc then.
Sometimes one picture is better than a poem. In some cases, a short video presentation shows more than screenshots and overview. A good 60 seconds video can reveal product features and uniqueness or display it in action. Popular startups like Box.net or 99design.com embedded introduction video on the website home page instead of traditional features overview and images.
Most of us know the silhouette of the main French tourist attraction – The Eiffel Tower. It is famous for a massive foundation and a light top.
It looks like during the last two years web designers were inspired by the upside down French beauty. Take Flipboard, for example. While entering the site, you see the top and hardly can notice the bottom menu. Frankly speaking, at my first visit to www.flipboard.com, I spent 3 minutes searching for a navigation menu. I failed to find more info about this app and I quitted the site. Probably I’m not the only one who faced such problem and returned back to Google search. I’m sure that my bounce is not a big deal for Flipboard.
Money making is the main purpose for any business. To boost earnings, you should attract as more potential customers as possible. Let’s learn to make a winning registration page or a purchase page with a high conversion rate. The page has several names: registration, purchase page, pricing plans. But the meaning is one – to offer few price options and a correct call-to action. It’s the final page that persuades visitors to pay you now.
Every hour millions of people share Twitter and Facebook updates. A friend status about a new website can bring an immense number of visitors. Thus word of mouth turns a formerly unknown web page into one of the most visited destinations.
However, Twitter and Facebook are useless unless you can handle them right.
A Successful Subscription Page Rules
I have several favorite blogs. I often go back to them to read recent posts, but I subscribed to few of them. There are 2 reasons that stop me from email subscription:
- Lack of clear email subscription rules at subscription page. I’m not talking about a must-have unsubscribe policy;
- Complicated web subscription forms.
It looks like many websites underestimate the power of loyal subscribers.
When we make a website, we pay huge attention to content, design or a top-notch domain name. Often a little, but crucial, thing that slips away is a website navigation. I don’t want to say that many fresh websites have no navigation. Each site has at least one type of navigation: upper, bottom, or left site menu. I’d like to dwell upon the importance of additional or backup navigation.
