The other day I was visiting the Microsoft website and I discovered a couple of interesting little programs including AutoCollage 2008. It is a program which will produce various sizes of blended collages from the pictures in a folder on your computer.
Last week I downloaded the latest edition of FastStone, my favourite image viewer.
I like it because it is just as fast as its name implies and one of the quickest ways I know of to view a folder of pictures and cull the bad ones. It has a huge range of features including the ability to convert Raw files produced by a whole range of cameras.
It’s free and, if you haven’t done so already, I’d really advise you to pop along to FastStone.org and take a look. When I downloaded the latest version, I also got a list of other programs that FastStone users have downloaded and, at the top of the list, was a free program called PhotoScape, which I’d never heard of. It’s only about 16 MB in size so I snagged a copy and installed that as well.
