How Many Presses Can You Do?

This plugin ROCKS! We’ve PAID for video plugins that didn’t do as much as this one or didn’t perform as well. If you want to add a video library on your page, then this is the tool for you. You can pull from an existing playlist, channel, group or album that already exists on Vimeo or YouTube or you can create your own channel and pull the videos in from there. Or, if you want to just do a keyword search, this tool has you covered as well. Check it out. Another FREEBIE brought to ya by THE ZU! Continue Reading

A Monkey Is Loose in The ‘Zu

PicMonkey is a FREE online photo editor that works better than most and quite frankly, we use it mostly for Facebook posts. It’s simple to use and can take an ordinary image and turn into something much more professional-looking. We used PicMonkey for the images on our sidebar . . . just to spiff it up a bit.

Phixr Editing Tool

The Name Says It All

There’s lots of editing tools out there so we tried to choose those we found to offer the most simplistic ease of use while providing the user with several options. Phixr Editing Tool made the cut! Using Phixr you can soften and sharpen photos, imitate HDR images (using unsharp mask algorithms), remove noise (“despeckle”). Phixr can also blur your photos in many ways (eg. motion and zoom blur). You can add objects (icons; think flowers, smilies, etc.), borders and textures (overlays), of which there are hundreds to choose from. Phixr can even geotag your photos. Continue Reading



It’s A Good Excuse to Shout

Post your voice on your favorite social media site using Shoutomatic. This is a simple tool that allows you to post your voice message directly from your computer or phone using the app. There’s really not much to it, other than “allowing” your microphone to kick in and then simply saying what it is you want your followers to hear. You can also upload specialized images to draw some additional attention. We’ve found that people are a little afraid to “shout back” at you, but then again, we haven’t used it for any extended period of time. So get creative and start shouting! Continue Reading
