Robin Good's curator insight, March 5, 2014 1:30 PM



Ember is a Mac and iOS app that allows you to easily capture parts of a screen, a specific image, a whole window or a full web page easily and to edit it, collect it and organize it according to tags, themes/groups and colours.


Ember key strengths are:


a) the image "capture" toolset, which is second to none. It offers maximum flexibility, it is simple, and allows you to save directly to any folder/group/collection you have set-up.


b) the image editor utility that integrates a set of useful tools that includes cropper, focus/blur areas, rotate, add text, freehand drawing.


c) the elegantly designed "library" where you can organize your images and screenshots easily via drag and drop into collections. Each image can also have a description and multiple tags. In addition Ember can automatically sort all your images by colors.


d) the "subscription" area where you subscribe to image feeds from various sites and galleries to get inspiration and ideas.


iCloud-syncable.


Ember is a beautifully designed app that does a fantastic job of capturing any kind of image or screenshot from the web and to give you relevant tools to edit it and "curate" it into private collections.

N.B.: Though Ember is really a great app to use, I would not pay its relatively hefty price tag, unless it allowed me to publish or export (in a publishable format) some of my collections.


Free to 14-day trial.

Price £.34.99 


N.B.: Ember requires Mac OSX Mavericks to run.

Six steps to easy content curation.

 

Curation is sometimes confusing. Everyone has a different definition and it's used in many different ways as part of content and marketing strategies.

 

I asked 10 of my favorite curation experts for their best tips, tools, their favorite curator and suggestions on innovative uses of curation. Each is a curator on Scoop.it, my favorite curation tool and channel. New and experienced curators are going to learn from their advice.

Never heard of it - must be worth sharing :)

Robin Good's insight:Introducing content curation to someone who doesn't know anything about it is not always an easy task. There are so many different articles, opinions, definitions and recommendations about content curation that it is quite difficult for someone just getting familiar with the topic, to easily find out where to start and what to trust. To help out anyone needing to support the explanation of content curation to others, here are five comprehensive resource collections I have put together over the course of the last year. 1) Content Curation - Definitions a collection of the best and most useful definitions of what content curation is http://bundlr.com/b/content-curation-definition 2) Content Curation - What is it? Video Intros 30+ short video clips that introduce the need, practice and purpose of content curation http://huzzaz.com/collection/content-curation-what-is-it 3) Content Curation Visualized 110+ infographics, visuals, illustrations and diagrams explaining what content curation is www.pinterest.com/robingood/content-curation-visualized/ 4) Content Curation Tools Directory - Tools Directory 100+ of the best content curation tools organized in a directory for immediate access http://contentcuration.zeef.com/ 5) Content Curation Tools Supermap - Tools Collection 600+ content curation, discovery, filtering and publishing tools organized by categories for doing content curation http://bit.ly/ContentCurationToolsSupermap All free to use and share.
