Reducing image file size is one of the most important tasks for every designer and blogger. If the file size of any image is big, it will take more time to load which may cause the reader or user of the website to leave without even opening the page. Recently, we came across a useful tool, GIFbot which can help users solve this problem without installing any third-party application.
GIFbot is a useful online tool which can help users reduce the file size of any image to make it load faster on websites. Using GIFbot is really simple and easy, all you need to do is upload the image of the file you want to compress or give the URL if it’s uploaded somewhere. Also specify the email address where you want the tool to send the converted file.
You can even change the output of the file you want to convert. You can either convert in the same format or change it into GIF or JPG format and run the test.
After converting the image, it will give you images in different quality and sizes. All you have to do is right click the image, save it and compare it with the original.
GIFBot is a must try online tool which can help users compress images in a matter of seconds. If you know about any other tool, please share with us using the comments section below.
We know that Photshop is the best way of photo editing and literally it is more than a photo editor due to availability of a number of its extensions. But Photoshop or any other Windows based image editor can’t be with us every where and some time our PC is not with us. In this condition online photo editor can fulfill our most of photo editing requirements and I really mean it. Prntscr is one of the best online tool to make this dream true.
When you will load the Prntscr it will look like Photoshop i.e its user interface matches with Photoshop very much.
Like Photoshop you will find lasso and polygonal lasso tools in with which you can make fine selections and can also apply proper value of feather to make edges smooth. You can also make edges anti aliased.
You can crop any area of image easily.
Blur,Sharpen,dodge,burn and Smudge tools

Overall it is really a lovely online photo editing tool and may be very useful if we do not have a good photo editing tool in our computer or we are unable to use our PC i.e during working on anybody else computer or in Cyber Cafe.
All of us love to have animated GIF images as your display pictures on our Instant Messengers, social network profiles and what not. However, very few can actually create their own GIF images according to their own liking. Today we present to you five of the easiest online tools which you can use to create your own GIF images and then use them wherever you like:
Free Websites to make GIF’s:
Probably the easiest tool to get hold of in order to make animated GIF images, Imator just does that and more. The great thing is that there seems to be no limit to how many images you can upload and convert them to GIFs. Also, you can create animated banners and avatars for use on blogging websites and forums to let everyone see your creativity. Images can be uploaded from your PC and/or any URL. The simple drag and drop interface easily lets you work and animation speeds of your images can be selected from a pre-defined drop down list. <Link>
Another great website which allows for creation of animated GIF images, Loogix helps you create your own animated GIF in just three steps. First you need to upload an image (PC or URL). Next, you are required to select the size and speed of the animation you want to apply and finally generate the desired animation and that’s it. Your GIF animated image is ready. Maximum pixel size which can be set is 400 pixels using Loogix. <link>
The great thing about Gickr is that it allows you to upload images from YouTube as well, making it easy for you to make animated images out of video clips. Simply Specify a YouTube video URL and you’re on the go. There is a limit of 10 pictures maximum for Gickr which might be a turn off for many. Also a YouTube video converted will only contain a maximum of 45 frames. However, the ability to make animated images from YouTube videos is just amazing. Created GIF Images are downloadable to PC as well. <link>
Picasion gives you the ability to resize your images before you actually turn them into animations and also lets you upload pictures from many services like Facebook, Twitter, Bebo, MySpace, Flickr etc. Moreover, you can also rotate the pictures and add color effects to them while turning them into cool animations. <link>
Make A GIF
The best thing about Make a GIF is that you can add multiple images at the same time up to a maximum number of 12 with each image not being more than 1MB in size. Also, you can edit and resize the image before applying the animation and animation time can be set even in milliseconds for some more precision. However, one bad thing about Make a GIF is that it doesn’t provide the user with the ability to one-click download the created GIF and you have to manually save it from your browser. <link>
