For the many bloggers / home user out there… getting a offline photo editing application can sometimes be pretty costly and even complicated. Don’t get me wrong, there are plenty of free ones out there, GIMP, Paint.NET… and they are pretty good for most average user… but how about this, something that is quick, easy, and free and it’s online!!!

Check out Picnik!!! Thanks to the power of Adobe Flex, the web world has changed!

Here’s the excerpt from the site:

  • Fix your photos in just one click

  • Use advanced controls to fine-tune your results

  • Crop, resize, and rotate in real-time

  • Tons of special effects, from artsy to fun

  • Astoundingly fast, right in your browser

  • Awesome fonts and top-quality type tool

  • Basketfuls of shapes from hand-picked designers

  • Works on Mac, Windows, and Linux

  • No download required, nothing to install

  • and more…

    The company that I work for now is heavily exploring and coding Adobe AIR / Flex stuff and man… it’s a totally revolutionary development platform!!! Any developer out there, you need to check it out or the development world you knew will pass you by in a blink of an eye…

    After weeks of waiting in anticipation… Xobni finally arrives! Here’s my previous entry on this fantastic add on to Outlook.

    Got my install link and I went straight away to get it on my Outlook and man, it integrates pretty well. It took a fairly lengthy process to index all my mails as I just IMAP instead of POP and it did detected that immediately and gave me a notice to wait… patiently.

    Once it is done, it is simply amazing! Everything in the video released previously work flawlessly. I have been using it for the past two days and have already invited friends to try this out (Disclaimer: there’s no sponsor whatsoever from Xobni).

    Thanks Xobni! Keep up the good work and will be willing to pay for such app when it is released.


    Above is the screen shot of the integration with my Outlook. Nice!

    So far, the food has been terrific. 8 out of 10 are absolutely fabulous!!! Worth trying again. Just stay away from Taipei and you will really enjoy the food cos they are way cheaper and nicer.
