Pimagic is an excellent and super-intuitive free online image editor

accessible to anyone without needing to download, register, login or install anything. 


You can easily upload any image you have, and crop it, or apply to it one of several presets which allow you to easily improve it.

Pimagic also offers a set of visual effects, similar to those available in Instagram. 


Images can be saved in either .jpg or .png file formats.


The only function I was not able to find was a resizing tool. Did I miss it? 



Useful. Easy. Immediate.


Free to use. Ad free. 


Try it out now: http://app.pikock.com/pimagic 



Thanks to Ana Cristina Pratas for uncovering this gem.

Collaborative Free P2P Screen-Sharing for Macs and PCs with ScreenHero


Via Robin Good, Timo Ilomäki

Robin Good's curator insight, November 24, 2013 2:32 AM


ScreenHero is a downloadable app for Windows and Mac computers that allows you to collaborate one-on-one on the same app with someone else at a distance.


ScreenHero has recently added full support for Windows PCs and it now integrates a voice feature allowing you also to talk with the person you are collaborating with.


Your login credentials and session data are fully encrypted using a P2P TLS scheme (SSL based).


ScreenHero operates as a P2P app, allowing parties to hook up directly to one another, and resorting to its centralized servers only when a direct connection is not possible for some reason.


My comment: An excellent screen-sharing tool for distributed teams. If you regularly operate with someone else at a distance and you need to easily and reliably share screens to see and edit drafts, mock-ups, presentations or code, ScreenHero is a great resource.


N.B.: If you are on a PC you will need a recent version of Windows, as PCs with Vista and earlier Windows versions are not supported.


Free version available.
