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.

A really quick tool for the Mac, but can do the same with Quicktime. Not sure if my firewall is preventing this from running. Recorded 5 seconds of footage from 1/4 of my screen on my MacBook Pro and has been cycling for about 5 minutes. Personally I pay the money and use ScreenFlow, which also allows webcam and microphone input together with screen casting and computer sound. Once finished recording the Screenflow editor pops up to allow you to adjust any of the shot.

A Curated Collection of All the DataViz Methods: The Data Visualization Catalogue

A Curated Collection of All the DataViz Methods: The Data Visualization Catalogue | Presentation Tools | Scoop.it
If you've ever struggled with what visualization to create to best show the data you have, The Data Visualization Catalogue might provide just the help you
Robin Good's insight:



The Data Visualisation Catalogue is an on-going project developed by Severino Ribecca which attempts to index and catalogue all of the data visualization approaches available, in order to help journalists, designers and professional communicators identify more easily the type of data visualization most appropriate for their needs.

.

In the Catalogue there are now over 50 different data visualization approaches that have been identified, and about a third of them have also been documented with a basic description, visual examples, relevant tags to associate it with their possibe best uses, variations, and with a list of alternative tools available to create that type of data chart.

.

You can browse the catalogue also by using the "Search by Function" which is designed to aid in choosing the appropiate data visualization approach based on the specific communication need at hand, or with the "View by List" approach, which organizes dataviz methods by types. 

.

My comment: Excellent resource for visual communicators of all kinds as it helps you see the great variety of dataviz approaches available. It makes it easier to identify and select relevant solutions according to needs and use.

Make It Easy for Anyone To Connect To Your Projector via this WiFi box: Prijector

Robin Good's insight:



Prijector is a new hardware device that eliminates issues arising when different people, who have different computers and setups need to connect to a projector.


You know how the story goes. One guy forgets his VGA adapter cable. One another doesn't have a HDMI out plug. And so on.


Prijector solves the issue by acting as an intermediary between any computer wanting to present and the projector itself. You connect via WiFi to this device and that's it, you don't have to worry anymore about cables and plugs.


Therefore even if you have a conference with multiple presenters, each one of them only needs to connect to the Prijector WiFi access point to be connected to the projector.


Key advantages I see:

  • you don't have to worry about people having the proper cable or adapater to connect to the projector
     
  • you are not locked to be within cable length distance from the projector
     
  • you can easily switch from one presenter to another easily without flipping cables
     
  • you can provide local wifi access to the people attending


I haven't tried one but it looks useful.



Pre-launch pricing: $119 (later $199)

Add a Custom Voice-Over To Any Presentation with SlideSpeech

Add a Custom Voice-Over To Any Presentation with SlideSpeech | Presentation Tools | Scoop.it
Robin Good's insight:



SlideSpeech is a free web app which allows you to upload .ppt or .odp presentations and to automatically add a voice over, digitally generated, that will automatically read all of the speaker notes associated to each slide.


Alternatively you can record your own voice via SlideSpeech, one slide at a time or upload pre-made audio files to go with each slide.


Under the hood there is also a little interaction facility that makes it easy to add a question and a set of possible answers at the end of the presentation. 


The final presentation is posted online at its own URL, can be embedded in any web site or blog and can also be downloaded as a video or .zip file. A simple stat facility keeps also track of how many view your presentation gets.


It is also possible to set whether other people will be allowed to edit and remix your presentation and whther or not you want search engines to index it.


Available on the web and on iOS, Android and Windows Phone.



My comment: Excellent free tool with lots of good features under the hood. Unfortunately you only have three digital voices to choose from: two males (English, German) and one female. Great download options but .zip is not enabled yet and the video option requires some additional Quicktime plugin to work but it doesn't say which one. Overall promising but with a few rough corners still.



Free to use.

Evver is a free web app which allows you to create music slideshows with extreme ease. You simply select your favorite pictures (from 10 to 100), you pick up a song, among the available soundtracks, and the rest is automatically done for you.


You can re-arrange the order in which the photos will be shown in the final video and delete the ones that you don't want to use and you are set to go.


Evver edits your pics in sync with the music and creates a music video that can be easily shared on any social media or embedded to your site or blog.


My comment: Very, very easy to use. The selection of music tracks that you can use is presently very limited. The final result is good, but - as you can see from my sample - not as good as it could be.

Create and Show In-Sync Multimedia Web Presentations Across Devices with Swipe

Robin Good's insight:



Swipe is a new web app which allows you to easily create multimedia web presentations by simply uploading images and PDF files or linking to specific video clips.


Once uploaded, slides can be easily re-titled and can be sorted intuitively in any order you want.


Your final Swipe presentation can be shared with anyone and you can show slides in-sync to anyone viewing. You can even stop or pause video clips that are part of your Swipe presentation as they are being viewed and re-start them when you like.


Swipe-based presentations can be created, edited, delivered and viewed across all kind of screen sizes and devices from desktop computers to smartphones.


Cool features include the ability to preview the next upcoming slide without viewers seeing, private and public settings, and a custom timer that measures your presentation time. 


My comment: Excellent presentation tool for delivering in-sync slideshows. For delivering presentations to an audience you need to factor in a teleconference or audio conferencing tool for the audio part. As it is Swipe it's great for one-to-one or small group conferencing via Skype in which you want to show a presentation in sync with everyone (screen-sharing for groups on Skype is a pro option, it's paid, requires lots of bandwidth and it isn't that great if you don't a lot bandwidth).


The approach used by Swipe to show slides in sync with everyone is very bandwidth effective and makes it possible to use this tool effectively in situations where participants have little bandwidth and use smartphones and tablets, in place of using screen-sharing apps which are bandwidth-hungry solutions.

Picadilo è un editor di immagini web based, si tratta di un web eare che possiede finzionalità complete per il trattamento delle imamgini e non richeide lunghi tempi di apprendimento per poter essere utilizzato. La versione libera non consente di usare gli strumenti di selezione più evoluti e di lavorare con i livelli, per il resto offre tutte el altre funzioni: cropping, resizing, rotate, flip, regolazione luminosità, contrasto, saturazione,esposizione, temperatura colore, selezione, ecc.

E' possibile salvare il lavoro finito e condividerlo.
