Picasa is one of the great free photo organizers and editors that you can rely on, especially since they’ve been bought by Google a few of years ago. Ever since they’ve supported Mac, updates have been available for both side by side and it stays true in version 3.8. This latest version, now available for download for both PC and Mac, includes a bunch of major features such as batch album upload, ‘Face Movie’ and Picnik intergration.

Batch upload is pretty much self-explanatory. Face movie on the other hand is a feature where users can create animations from a series of photos of the same person. Finally, Picnik intergration. We’ve covered Picnik a while back where you can edit your photos online for free easily. Picnik is a great and easy to use tool for fast photo editing and now with Picasa you can select your photos from your Picasa, upload them to Picnik, edit them and have them saved back into Picasa.

Head over to picasa.google.com now to download Picasa 3.8.

You want to build a website but don’t know how to go about doing it? If you find yourself in that situation where you just can’t handle the codes when building a website in Dreamweaver or Frontpage, this could be a solution for you. Wix.com is a free website builder that offers free flash template. The way Wix.com works is close to what you can see on iWeb. But for those who do not have access to iWeb, this could be a great tool.

Websites are built via drag and drop and builders do not need to see a single line of code at all. This is a great feature and one that iWeb users know so well. Wix also provides tons of templates ranging from personal websites to business though you have the option to start from scratch too. Not only that, you are also able to upload your own files such as your photos and videos to personalize your website. Another feature worth mentioning is the fact that websites created on Wix.com are search engine friendly.

Go on give Wix.com a try.

An example of a website made on Wix.com: www.costumeboutique.biz

A lot of the times I find myself searching for stock photos or commercial safe images but it’s not always easy. Looking for photos to use on a blog post is one thing – I’ve got Zemanta, Flickr and Google Images for them but what about stock photos to use for your designs for cheap or even better, free?

For that I usually use Stock Exchange but not everything can be found there. So sometimes I turn to Veezzle, a new comer to image searching and as a new comer, Veezzle still has a few issues it needs to address. Some searches are not accurate shown right on the first page. For example, when I searched for “Playstation 3”, the following results came out:

I can understand the fourth image but the first two? I wonder what Sony would think.

But know that Veezzle puts credit where it’s due. Notes by photographers are kept, the website is clean of annoying ads and the speed is top notch.
