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.

The Future of Video Is About Learning How To Tell Great Emotional Stories

Via Robin Good

Robin Good's curator insight, April 15, 2014 6:52 AM



In this SxSW set of video interviews captured by Wipster (a collaborative video review and approval service) with some of the "experts" in the online video publishing field, you can hear most of what you already know and expect from the future of video: 4K, real-time editing, effects, 3D, small screens and more. 

What instead emerges as the real challenge though, is to realize that no matter what kind of tools and services you use, the difficult part is to have a good story and to learn how to tell it on video.


Tools are great and easy indeed, but they don't make anyone a capable storyteller instantly. This is what we really need to work on.


No need to view all 12+ minutes of the video. Just check the first and the last interview in this clip and you will get the real meat.  



Insightful. Informative. 7/10

Kim Zinke (aka Gimli Goose)'s curator insight, February 26, 2014 12:39 AM

This article made so much sense to me that I had to sit down and listen to the podcast right away.  Here's some comments that stood out for me:

  • Brands are struggling.  What's missing is conflict.

  • Need to inject conflict without damaging the brand.

  • Too many provide a false picture – everything is wonderful.

  • Have to (provide and) overcome the conflict or the listener won’t like it.

  • Conflict – get as close as possible to death.

  • Conflict – best kind of universal truth.


How to find your org/brands conflict?  Need to take a softer look at the notion of conflict (the term conflict brings up certain imagery, feelings).  Conflict is simply something to overcome.  Ask yourself - do we want to be a company who wants to overcome things?


There's also a great made-up example (Donut Corp) provided of how an organization could find it's conflict.
