Visual Communication And Video Publishing Tools

  1. Vcasmo
    Vcasmo is an online presentation tool that enables you to combine your PowerPoint presentation videos, images or a voice over.

  2. MyPlick

  3. ImageDiff
    ImageDiff is a free downloadable software that anyone can use to compare two pictures. You can compare any type of image, even in different formats than each other (including JPG, GIF, BMP, TIF, PNG and more), in a matter of seconds: just select the images, and it will overlay the original image to see exactly where changes have occurred. You can also compare images of different sizes, as imageDiff will scale and compare them automatically. Free.

  4. PicMe
    PicMe is a freeware application that scans your digital photo library and displays your images in a 3D stacked interface. You can use it to browse also to share photos, either with photo sharing webapps like Flickr, Picasa Web Albums, or Facebook, or with PicMe contacts. The free version allows you to share 200 print-quality photos. Free to download and use, for Windows machines only.

    resizeit_logo.gif is a free web-service that lets you resize images online without using any other software. When you are on the homepage, you can choose between four different modes: you can resize pictures in portrait mode, landscape mode, crop pictures, or choose the advanced mode which lets you do both with personalized settings. You can then export your picture in GIF, PNG or JPG format. Free to use, no registration needed.

  6. PictureFul
    PictureFul is a free web-based image editor that you can use to edit any picture online. Just select the file you want to edit and click upload to start editing it: you can rotate, change orientation, resize and apply effects to any picture, with no need to install any additional software. The service is completely free to use with no registration needed.

    anjo_logo.gif in an online video converter that allows you to convert videos from YouTube online. You can enter the video URL, or enter a search-word and browse between all the videos, select the output format between FLV, 3GP, Mp4, AVI, MOV, and also Mp3-audio-only, and click send. You will then be provided with a download link to get your new converted file. Free.

  8. Zorro
    Zorro is a freeware Windows -only application that you can use to literally crop your screen for better watching videos and images. It does so by blacking out all content that isn't your video, images, or what you are looking at, including your browser window: just launch it, resize it so whatever you want to isolate is inside Zorro's boundaries, and hit escape to black out everything outside the Zorro window. Free to download and use.
