Free Photo Editing Software, GIMP!

Does image manipulation/editing fit your fancy? Do you want to try your hand at it but don't want to pay for such expensive software, such as Adobe's PhotoShop? Well than, I have some good news for you! There is free software for download called GIMP, which stands for Gnu Image Manipulation Program. The program is very powerful for anyone's image editing needs whether it be someone who's been doing so for a long time, or an amateur who wants to dip their foot into the water. With tons of filters options, and tools GIMP will serve its users well! Don't think just because it's a free program that it can't stand up to the big names like that of Adobe PhotsShop or Corel Paintshop.

The link to the GIMP webpage is right here!

The K-Lite Codec Pack!

The K-lite codec pack is a small installation file that will allow you to play just about any video or music extension on your computer's video player (Think of those .MKV and .FLAC files). To those who download a lot of subbed anime, this is very useful!

K-lite is great in that it exterminates the need of downloading extra video player software that have the codecs installed with them (besides the Windows 7 Video player is so nice you might not want to use anything else). As a final note, there are different types of codec packs they offer depending on your needs, though, I recommend the standard.
To those interested in downloading the link is right here.

>>>>As a side note, if you are one of those installers who simply press yes/next through all the options without giving a passing glance, I would consider taking your time through un-checking options such as installing the classic media player and not showing certain icons on your system tray.

Free (and Legal!) Music!

I while ago I posted about legal ways to get some software. Well now I'm here to talk about free and legal music through the nifty website Jamendo. Jamendo is a music site that lets you download music of artists who are trying to get their names out there, so you just might end up listening to the next be thing!

You can donate money to the artists if it turns out that you really enjoy their music and want to help out. Though the music may be free, if you want to use it in something like your own works (games or movies) or play it in your store/shop that will cost you money, you'll need to pay for the licensing fees - so in short, personal use free, commercial use not free.

The website also allows those who want to get their music out there to join and get some free exposure as well. The users can even sign up so that should their music be used for commercial use, they gets cash in their pocket too!

To visit the site just click this link.
And if your a jazz fan, you might like this page as well! ;3

Hey! I haven't posted in a while, and to that I say... sorry! I lost my internet connection for a while, couldn't really afford the AT&T plan here, but am now with Comcast! I'll try posting a bit more to make up for my absent time!

Also, there seems to be some cool new templates now too! I'm going to try them out for a bit! ;3
