GET UP AND OUT THERE

If you want to get a website online fast, there are over a dozen services, that can do that, and many of them are free. We’ve used the free versions of “WordPress” and “Yola” to create web sites. Friends have raved about Weebly for producing new sites, so we tried it and must agree, it’s very nice; it’s also free.

HEY GOOD-LOOKIN

When you see an older celebrity pictured in a magazine and looking 20 years younger, you can’t help wondering if some trick is involved. Well it is, and we’ve discovered a way for anybody to do it. (No, it’s not botox.) It’s a $50 program called “Portrait Pro,” from PortraitPro.com. Take any photo in the computer and let the program work its magic for a few seconds. The results in Joy’s case were so stunning, she is reluctant to accept her old look. She will only walk outside now with the new “Portrait Pro” photo pasted on her face. (This has caused some comment.) You can see examples of before and after photos on their website. When you see it […]

NOTES AND NOTS

Cyberlink’s “YouNote,” a new free app at the Windows  app store, is fun and even useful. It’s a virtual notebook for collecting notes and pictures and putting them in pockets of interest. We found it fun to collect notes this way under different topics, like recipe books, travel, sports, etc. Add the pictures, cartoons and scribbles and some of our notes are cute enough to use as scrapbook pages or greeting cards. The program works with regular or touch screen PCs using Windows 8. But, alas, all is not yet perfect in this infinitely perfectible universe: There are other ways to skin Schrodinger’s cat. YouNote is missing some key features found in the older and massively popular Evernote, a free […]
