The original purpose for GIMPshop was to make the Gimp accessible to the many Adobe Photoshop users out there. . And maybe along the way, convert a Photoshop pirate into a Gimp user.
Gimpshop is an exceedingly powerful Photoshop lookalike that has far more features than you, or most people you know, will ever use

I have a new way to send a gigantic files.

Send large files to anyone with TransferBIGFiles...

Just select the files you want to send (up to 1 gigabyte per file) and TransferBigFiles will
email the recipient with a link to the download page, and it's FREE!

Start sending your files now...

TransferBigFiles lets you send up to five files at a time. I like being
able to send a file to five people, too, though I'd prefer being able
to blind-copy the recipients. Other features: You can password protect
the file and get a confirmation that it's been downloaded. Files are
held for five days and then deleted.
ALSO-- You do not need to download anything to doit. However if you do want a handy extension to the program then you can download the drop zone Client from HERE
This includes-
  • System Tray Utility (for Windows)inc.Vista
  • Drag 'n' Drop to Share Files
  • Auto-resume interruptions
  • See a History of All Your Transfers
  • Extends file expiration from 5 to 10 days
  • Increased downloads permitted (up to 100)
  • Small footprint (~200kb)
  • Fast, secure & reliable!

ImgBurn is a lightweight CD / DVD / HD DVD / Blu-ray burning application that everyone should have in their toolkit!

It has several 'Modes', each one for performing a different task:

* Read - Read a disc to an image file
* Build - Create an image file from files on your computer or network - or you can write the files directly to a disc
* Write - Write an image file to a disc
* Verify - Check a disc is 100% readable. Optionally, you can also have ImgBurn compare it against a given image file to ensure the actual data is correct
* Discovery - Put your drive / media to the test! Used in combination with DVDInfoPro, you can check the quality of the burns your drive is producing

Oh and let's not forget the best thing about it.... it's 100% FREE ;-)


Back up your movies on DVD to your hard drive.
Here's one for anyone who wants to make backup copies of their DVDs on their hard disk. That way, you can use Windows Media Center or another DVD media player to play the DVDs on your PC. The program lets you rip the DVD to your hard disk in a variety of formats, including a lossless one that keeps the image and audio quality intact. You can choose from other formats if you want to save hard disk space. And you can also customize the quality on any DVD you rip.

DVD Shrink will preserve all your DVD content, including menus, trailers, subtitles, and so on. If you'd like, though, you can eliminate any of that content as well. Maybe best of all, it's free.

become, in essence, a vast operating system, with applications built on
top of it. To a great extent, that's the premise underlying

The Web is just as chaotic as the world--but Pageflakes
can organize both of them for you. This super-customizable version of a
home page enables you to pick the news and information feeds you want
to read, and to specify the "flakes,"
or applets, you want to include. Flakes let you add all sorts of cool
stuff to your page--movie times, to-do lists, a notepad, e-mail, a
horoscope--even sudoku or a personal blog. If you're looking for
one-stop browsing, this is it.
