Launch 280 Slides
Create beautiful presentations, access them from anywhere, and share them with the world.
With 280 Slides, there's no software to download and nothing to pay for

it any way you like.
The available themes look great, and you can use pictures and videos
from online services in your presentations. Once you’re finished
with your presentation, you can publish it and share it on the Web in a
variety of ways, but you can also download it as a PowerPoint file.

For ONLINE editing there is only one program for me and that is FotoFlexer
got a few other options you can try. both online and for download. First, Windows Live Photo Gallery (see previous post) has a
few simple photo editing tools built in. For a step up, consider Picnik, an online photo editor with a surprising amount of photo editing muscle.
Or consider the FastStone Image Viewer, I can heartily recommends as both fast and free.
A final option is only for the adventurous. GIMP,
which stands for the GNU Image Manipulation Program, is an open-source
photo editor that offers many of the same features as a powerhouse like
Adobe Photoshop, but it's completely free. The interface takes a little getting used to, though.
photos, and Windows Live Photo Gallery proves that you can get world
class software without paying a dime. Available from Microsoft, Windows Live Photo Gallery is an enhanced version of the Photo Gallery that ships in Windows Vista,
but it works on both Vista and XP. It has superb organizer features,
including adjustable thumbnail sizes, keyword tagging, and the ability
to upload photos directly to Windows Live Spaces and Flickr. My favorite feature is the integrated panoramic stitching tool.

If you use Gmail in the “new version” you should take a good look at Better Gmail 2, an interface package put together with Greasemonkey user scripts by Gina Trapani. Originally available on Lifehacker, it is now an official Mozilla extension for Firefox 3.
Better Gmail 2 offers a number of enhancements, including
- Force Gmail to make an encrypted connection (HTTPS)
- Move the inbox count to the top of the sidebar lists
- Add neat row highlights on mouseover
- Show appropriate icons for email attachments
- Filter assistant to help create filters quickly
- Message details shown automatically with each message if you like
- Reply above the item you’re replying to
- Full html signatures, including colors and rich text
- Show BCC, CC by hot key or automatically when opening Compose Mail
- A hierarchical folder system based on the label system (really saves space and organizes the labels box)
- The ability to hide chat, ihe invitation box and spam count
- Select three different skins, or none (try the snazzy Redesigned number)
- Advanced stuff if you want to write some macros
Several of these, especially HTML signatures, have been long needed
in Gmail, and this is a painless way to get them. Remember, though,
that it is a Firefox add-on (extension), and will only be
available on machines that have it installed along with Firefox. If
you want it whenever you need it, you will have to make sure it’s
installed on all the computers you normally use. Fortunately, it’s as
easy to install as any other Fx extension.Check it out.

you three strips of videos that match the words you searched for. It
pulls in results from places like Veoh and YouTube. The really cool
thing is that in those strips, the thumbnails are animated.
