Have you ever wished you had a Photoshop-like editor inside WordPress? I know I have.
Well, now you can. There is a new WordPress plug-in with which you can pull in images from free sites like Flickr and more through their easy search function You can edit and enhance the images. You can insert the images into your WordPress posts with the proper and legally required attribution with no hassle. All from within your WordPress post or page editor.
You can even pull in images you already have inside your WordPress media files and Dropbox. You can edit, download to your desktop (or anywhere), and there is also support for Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, Google+, and more. You also get the option to buy it for use on just one site or for a few pennies more on unlimited sites.
I did play with it for 30 minutes or so, and it’s truly easy, and I have never found graphics easy… until today.
If you use WordPress at all, I think you’ll get a lot of use out of this, especially for this low price. I know I will. You can see more here:

Have you ever lost a computer document?
Everyone who has created computer files and documents has experienced frustration when they lose an important document.
Let’s see how Dropbox can help eliminate this problem.
First and foremost, you can download Dropbox for free on any Windows, Mac, Linux or Mobile operating systems. No matter how great a computer system you have, it’s necessary to back up your files.
The main advantage of online backup is your files are hosted at a remote location entirely separate from your physical location. Most people who back up data transfer it to an external hard drive. But, what if that hard drive fails or you experience a hurricane, tornado, flood or a fire? If your equipment is destroyed, so is your data. You can also use Dropbox to backup information located on multiple computers with a single service. That’s so much more convenient than plugging an external hard drive into your desktop, transferring, unplugging it, plugging it into your laptop, transferring again, etc.
Security is also an issue that can impact Dropbox (and any other online storage service). Storing your information online is handy and provides an off-site backup you can access in case of a major catastrophe. Your online data will be accessed with your username and password. To improve your security, choose a password that would be difficult to guess and limit access to Dropbox to secure connections.
Dropbox lets you:
* Store your documents, videos and photos
* Share your documents with others
* Protect your precious photos and important documents
With Dropbox you can access your files from anywhere at any time and never have to worry your files may be damaged or lost.
Sharing your documents with others is simple. Just send them an invitation to folders in your Dropbox and they can view those files on any computer just as if the file is actually saved on that computer. It’s a great option when you want to share files or photos with clients, co-workers or relatives.
If your computer or external hard drive should die (heaven forbid), your files on Dropbox can be restored quickly. You can reverse mistakes and it allows you to remove files from the trash that you may have moved there and didn’t intend to.
Dropbox is fast and easy to set up. Storage for up to 2GB is totally free but you do have the option to purchase a storage package that will allow 100GB of storage for $9.99 per month or $99.00 per year (you can get even more storage if needed).
Another great benefit with Dropbox is it works with smart phones, iPads, and other devices that connect to the internet. Accessing your saved files can be done from anywhere in the world.
The convenience, ease of use, and peace of mind knowing your files are safe is a big reason more people are turning to Dropbox for help with file storage.
