I like picnik.com - it's a great free site for photo manipulation such as cropping, resizing etc.

What a great addition of free online tools.

You've listed some I haven't heard of...which is terrific.

Thank you.

Hi Karen,

You're most welcome. I've got several more I'd like to add, actually, but have to prune through my bookmarks to find them.

These are all great freebie tools.:-) Most I've heard of or even tried but I
failed to see the one that most people are never aware of. Twitter provides
an easy and free Twitwall account for every twitter account even if you
have a dozen twitter accounts you get a dozen individual Twitwall account.
What it allows you to do is use a text editor that is really quite good plus
you can place raw html in the post area in such a way that it then changes
it to be totally readable just like a webpage with graphics, file attachments,
videos embedded then when you are ready you enter the post and a short
link with the title you provided as a tweet on twitter. Not only all this but
it even lets you schedule retweets so it continues to tweet to more users as
they come & go. What could be sweeter than that. Not sure if I'm allowed
to put my twitwall link here so I will just say do a google search for twitwall
and I know you will find it.  ;)
 
 Happy tweeting

Do you know of any speech to text freeware like Dragon that is more hmm accurate? Or at least something that doesnt leave a hole in the pocket? I would like my writing more easy. :)

Depending on your operating system you may already have a speech recognition on your computer.  If you're using Windows 7 you can find it here:

Start --> All Programs --> Accessories --> Ease Of Access --> Windows Speech Recognition

I haven't used it so I don't know how accurate it is (Dragon user) but it's worth a try.

Thanks,
Mark

I'm actually on Win 8 right now but I guess it should still be there. I was thinking more along the likes of Dragon who can do long dictations. But I'm noticing that dragon aint really up to the task of prolonged use.

My two favorite free online tools (that I believe haven't been mentioned yet among the great apps on offer here) are:

1) Trello.com - an online todo and task manager that's a lot more than that description can convey.

2) Evernote.com - remembers, files, sorts, and searches everything, so you don't have to.

Bonus: Micro$oft have now made their One Note application available for free. It's actually quite good (but I prefer Evernote).

Please note that there are also paid versions of these applications. However, the free versions are so good you probably will be satisfied.
