CollageIt LogoA photo collage is a collection of pictures that you put up together in an artistic style. While its much easier to create a collage with printed pictures and office paste, its not much harder to do with digital pictures. You do not need expensive software like Adobe Photoshop for creating the photo collage; neither do you need to go to college and attend some boring lectures to learn about photo editing skills. All you need is a free software called CollageIt. It can take your pictures and randomly put them together on a page creating the photo collage for you. It also lets you adjust other minor details like page border, spacing between pictures and the layout of the collage. Read the rest of this entry »

Note: AirPlay Mirroring will only work for “the new iPad” (3rd generation) and the iPhone 4S or later devices. Other AirPlay functions like YouTube over AirPlay will work with older supported devices.

If you would like to project your iPad’s screen to any PC on your network, you can do so with AirServer. AirServer runs on your PC and broadcasts its availability to all AirPlay mirroring capable devices on the same local network. With version 0.9.3.1 (currently in beta) and onward, you can stream audio too.

PROS: All-In-One Ripper and Converter. Converts Both DVD and BlueRay to any format needed. Very good Image Crop Functionality. Watermark and image adjustment features.
