  • November 2, 2011

2ePub.comThis new site turns creating an ebook into something that anybody can do, as it’s not only really simple to use but it’s also available at no cost. If you’re a writer who has just finished his first truly good work, all you have to do is to upload the PDF or Doc for it to be converted into an ePub file. As I’m sure you know, that’s the standard format for mostly every reading device around. iPads and iPods support it, and so does Sony Readers, Kobos and Nooks. The one exception to the rule is the Kindle, as that’s got a format of its very own (IE, mobi). But even that is supported by, as it’s one of the output formats that you can choose when converting any file.

The full list includes the following formats: doc, docx, epub, fb2, html, lit, lrf, mobi, odt, pdb, pdf, prc, rtf, and txt. As you can see, that’s pretty extensive. It’s hard to think of a reading device that doesn’t support at least one of them.

And the site’s not only usable for free, it can also be used without having to sign up for an account first. All you have to do is to select the files that you want to have converted for the job to be done before you can even snap your fingers.

More – Digitize Old Media

  • October 2, 2011

PeggyBank.comAlthough there are lots of companies that can digitize media and turn anybody’s old and trusty video tapes into more modern formats, a fair share of people aren’t entirely convinced with the way these work. They’re just reluctant to stick some unique VHS tapes into boxes and have them sent by mail to someone they really don’t know, and who might actually be located at the other end of the country.

No, people need something more reliable. Something like PeggyBank.

This Nebraska-based startup enables those who want to have their memories digitized to do it in a fast and secure way. The company mails customers pre-addressed boxes for them to put all the media they need to have converted into them. That can be anything from VHS tapes to photos and even slides and negatives. The way this company works, digitized files are made available to customers right on its site, and the original media is returned once the job is done.

That is, unlike competing services PeggyBank doesn’t limit itself to creating a DVD with the converted files and sending it on its way. No, this company enables customers to get their files online. And once they get them, customers can proceed to have them shared with all their friends thanks to the deposit boxes they get for free. These are named “PeggyVaults”, and in addition to costing nothing they come with unlimited file storage.

More – Turn Photos Into 3D Models

  • September 26, 2011

3Defy.comThe days in which we had to buy expensive software in order to have 3D models created are nothing but a memory. Nowadays, we have applications that work on the browser from start to finish, and that let us come with fully-featured 3D models regardless of our actual technical skills. 3Defy is one such tool. It lets people take photos and have 3D effects applied to them, right on their browsers, and using a point-and-click interface. And then, have the resulting photos embedded just wherever they want.

Leaving aside an unwieldy registration process, 3Defy is a very spontaneous and versatile service. It makes it clear that the newest version of the Flash Player (version 11) has got a lot going for it, and that the GPU-accelerated 3D graphics rendering capabilities it has are enough to leave HTML5 gasping for breath.

3Defy can be used for free, and it must be stressed that what you can see if you give the site a try right now is a demo. It’s fully-functional, and it will allow you to have 3D effects added to all the images that you want. But the site you can currently visit is meant to give you a taster of what’s to come when the full (and final) version of 3Defy sees the light.

Convert your PDF to JPG: 3 Very Easy Ways

  • August 3, 2011

Convert your PDF to JPG: 3 Very Easy WaysIt’s only natural. Just because you have a computer that can handle all kind of files and documents you assume everybody else has a computer that can do exactly the same. But the truth couldn’t be more removed from that. Not everybody has a computer that can play .AVI files, for example. And not everybody has a computer that can open and display PDFs either.

In all cases, the one way out of trouble is to play things as safe as possible, and send your contacts the type of files even an Atari ST could handle. Take everything to its simplest denominator. And as far as PDFs are concerned, that implies having them turned into the kind of files just anybody could visualize: JPGs. There?s no personal computer that could fail to open such images. All computers can do it by default, without users having to download anything or launching any kind of conflictive application.

The objective of this post is to introduce you to some of the better applications that can assist you in such a conversion task.

In general, you must know that there are two ways to get that job done: by using web-based tools, and by downloading and installing a file conversion tool in your computer.

From PDF to JPG on the Web

There is no shortage of browser-based conversion tools you can use for free, and without the need to even register first. A really popular one is Zamzar. Its free version will let you upload and convert as much as five files at the same time, amounting to 100 MB. All you have to do is to upload them (or point the application to where they’re found online) for them to be rendered into the relevant output format (JPG in this case). They will be delivered straight to your inbox – your email address is the one and only piece of information you must supply.

And a very good alternative to Zamzar is the one provided by Neevia Technology, a purveyor of edocument solutions. This company offers a web interface for uploading files that is really simple to use, and that comes with some features not readily available elsewhere (much les for free), such as being able to set down the resolution of what you are converting and the overall image quality. And something as vital as being able to encrypt what you are converting by password-protecting it and making the image unprintable is made possible in a mere couple of clicks. So is watermarking your image.

The only downside of Neevia Technology is the upload limit, which is really harsh (1 MB per file).

From PDF to JPG on your desktop

In general, people resort to desktop converters not because the image quality is better or anything like that, but simply because they are much safer to use. There is information that no sound person would ever upload to the Internet. Who knows who might end up seeing it? These desktop conversion tools are the only safe way to keep such documents ensconced in your computer, and converted far from prying eyes.

PDF-Xchange Viewer for Windows is the one I want to bring to your attention right now, because its free version is capable of taking any document of yours and have it rendered into a JPEG, BMP or a PNG file. When doing so, you can tweak with aspects like its resolution, its page zoom and even the background to be used.

And PDF-Xchange Viewer has the added plus of letting you visualize PDFs, and annotate them as largely as you might want. That is, it lets people both open and edit documents with the same speed and ease.

More importantly, PDF-Xchange Viewer is a self-contained application. You won’t have to install any drivers in order to use it (a problem with other tools for the conversion of images).

So, there you go. I am sure any of the three applications introduced above will let you have any PDF of yours converted and rendered into a JPG anybody could handle. Personally, I always head to the Neevia Technology website in order to have PDFs processed because of the many encryption services that are offered, and that can be implemented with zero effort. But all three services are excellent, and they can all be used for free to begin with. Convert your PDF to JPG: 3 Very Easy Ways

People who are really creative and who are kept from turning their ideas into practice will be put in a position where these ideas can naturally grow and be developed. Technical considerations (IE, the biggest turnoff in such cases) will go flying out the window.

A trial version of Divine Elements can be downloaded on the site.

And if you find Divine Elements useful, then consider giving

ThemesPress a good look. That is a service for creating blog themes from HTML, for a more than reasonable fee.

  • July 5, 2011

FreeFileConvert.comNot all of us have the fanciest computers around. I am sure everybody can tell a tale or two of how he got his hands on a long-sought movie only to find that his PC could only play it back in a way bearing more resemblance to watching a slideshow than an actual movie.

Videolicious.comAn application that both users of iPhones and iPads can get for free at the AppStore, Videolicious stands as flexible way for making videos come to life. This iOS application can take both separate stills and raw footage and have it all combined into a visually-appealing video.

This is all done in a mere couple of esteps, namely picking the media to be used (and concatenating it), and recording oneself when narrating what happens in the video (or choosing a song to go along with the full sequence).

That will do the trick. The video will be ready in less than one minute, and you (as its creator) will be able to have it shared on Facebook, Twitter and any other social site that you habitually visit.

It is patently clear that the objective of Videolicious is being recognized as an easy, ad-hoc solution for the creation of quality videos in the shortest possible span of time. I think it passes the test, but I encourage you to give it a try for yourself and see whether it resonates with you or not. Remember, you can get the app for free.
