Collage makers have recently become very popular. There are enough online collage creators, take Photovisi, for example, and desktop applications to organize your pictures into a wonderful mess. Today I suggest that we have a look at one tool that can be installed on your computer and can be used even without the Internet access.
Haiku Deck is one of the best free presentation makers for iPad. It can't completely replace Microsoft PowerPoint, Prezi or Keynote for Mac, but Haiku Deck iOS app definetely deserves to be reviewed. Look at the Haiku Deck presentation sample below that I've made in less than 1 minute!
Panorama photos are one of the latest trends in digital photography. Panoramic photos are good for displaying landscapes, sightseeing, monuments, and object covering vast area. But they are rare in our home photo collections.
Usually after vacations we bring several separate photos of one place or building. We explain to our friends that we couldn’t shoot it as one pic and ask them to believe that it looks gorgeous as a united monument unit. But there is one free program that can save your friends’ imagination - IrfanView. It creates one panorama photo out of a few split pictures.
Everyone who works with piles of digital images, scanned faxes, PDF-documents, Photoshop files, and other stuff of that kind is familiar with standard Microsoft Document Viewer. Say it frankly, is it enough? If yes, skip this post, if no, go on reading.
I’ll ask the question and I’ll answer it myself basing on my personal experience. What a good viewer program should possess so that its users would run about and enthusiastically tell everybody how good it is?
Tick off points on your fingers. The perfect viewer has to:
- support a manifold of formats as there are plenty of exotic ones specific for various parts of the world;
- have a user-friendly interface (someone can object that it applies to all programs but I meant a big clear space left for image viewing);
- have a tool set to process files;
- be sold at a reasonable price and ideally be free of charge;
- offer some small but pleasant features as a compliment;
- have a multilingual support.
Beauty is an incredible weapon. A right haircut makes us self-confident. When we go to a hairdresser to change hairstyle, we may feel uncertainty. A new haircut is a long-term investment in appearance. If it doesn’t go well, you may feel ill at ease and less self-assured. Did you ever dream to change your look or try new haircut, but uncertainty in successful outcome stopped you from something new?
Give a try to jKiwi, free desktop software that casts away all doubts. jKiwi is a virtual appearance makeover that helps you try various haircuts, makeup and eye colors.

You can put on diverse mascara from the rich palette of blush, eye shadows, lip glosses and toners. jKiwi application makes easy and funny personal style change.
I love open source software. My open source photo software review section would be incomplete without GIMP overview, an exemplary open source photo editor. GIMP stands for GNU Image Manipulation Program. At first sight, the engineering-sound name makes you feel that GIMP is not invented for shopping (photo shopping) or profit-making interest. On the contrary, open source GIMP is a pure brainchild of coding and high-tech.
Launched in the 90-s by university students as photo editing software with open code, GIMP was cordially welcomed by the whole open source community. Many freelancers contributed to GIMP code, translations and bug fixing. Now GIMP is acknowledged as the leader of open source photo software.
