Software/Online Application of the Month...
Batch Photo Resize Software - Make your Life Easier

ImageSizer is an application built to resize, rotate, optimize and rename a batch of images, outputting them as a single compressed zip file - perfect if you want to e-mail a load of images off your digital camera, or a folder of images - just drag, drop, fiddle with settings and press 'Compress your images'.

App of the month

Once the files are processed, you can simply drag and drop again to export all of your images as a compressed zip archive or a folder on your hard drive.

I’ve used other applications such as Photoshop, Fireworks, etc but for this simple process ImageSizer is the app!

New Years Posture
Better Posture Means More Energy at Work

The art of sitting or standing up straight might seem like something out of a 1950's etiquette class, but it actually plays an important role in staying energized and efficient throughout your day at the office. Here's why:

Super Size your Screen

Health and home weblog Real Simple claims that by slouching, our body takes in as much as 30% less oxygen than we'd take in with good posture. When we sit slumped over (which is easy to do if you spend a great deal of time at the computer), we aren't just harming our posture, but our bodies' ability to keep our energy up.

Next time you you're feeling a little down in the dumps or need a little boost at work, check to see if your chin is up and your shoulders are back (or try other methods to fix your PC posture). It could mean the difference between making your workday frumpy or fabulous.
