How to Manage Your Pictures

Picture Resizing

How many times have you tried to upload a picture and then you get an error indicating that your picture was not the correct size?  With this Picture Resizing tool, you can now fix this easily.

PicMoney is an online editing site that has the ability to edit your photo and allow you to download at a high resolution.  They offer a free trial as well.


Free Images

Obtaining images online can be a tricky process.  One of my agents completed a Pay it Forward blog and did not use the free site that I recommended in class.  A few months later, he received a bill from the company for the use of the picture that he embedded in his blog.  Be sure you are using original content, your own pictures or your own designs.  Or be sure to use a site that offers FREE images and read the fine-print, as you may need to give the site credit when using their images.  In any event, here is a site that offers images for you to use.  Here are a few sites for you to explore.  Use at your own risk: – Zero cost royalty free images – Tons of images here!
morgueFile – Another great free stock image site
iStockPhoto – You have to pay here but still some great photos
BigStockPhoto – Similar to iStockPhoto

Smashing Magazine  is amazing: Go there and type in “free graphics” or “free icons” and you’ll get lots of downloadable packs completely for free!



Need to transfer documents to clients and the information is too big for email?  Consider DropBox.
