Create beautiful charts online with ChartGizmo

Need to create a quick bar chart or pie diagram to mail it to a friend? Why not do it online? Before this online-application craziness took over, everything we did on our computer, we did it with applications installed on our own PCs. For years, I have been using Excel to create charts. Now with web services like ChartGizmo available, creating charts is a breeze. Not that it was any harder doing it with Excel, but it's definitely quicker.

ChartGizmo is absolutely free (but requires registration) and allows you to create various kinds of diagrams: Pie, Bar, Line, Ring, 3D Pie, 3D Bar, 3D Line, Scatter Plot etc. You can either manually enter the data or import it from an Excel sheet. Now you can't actually upload an Excel file, just select and copy the data and paste it into the data window. The charts are all customizable - everything from colors, to labels, chart orientation and sizes. A window on the right gives a live preview of the diagram even before you save it.

ChartGizmo gives you multiple options to save and embed the chart in a web page. You get the chart in the standard PNG image format as well as in Flash, JavaScript and a Dynamic HTML format. All your charts are saved on your account and you can access them later at any time.

How to Schedule Changes to Your Facebook Page Cover Photo

Facebook’s current layout, the so called Timeline, features a prominent, large cover photo that some people are using in a lot of different creative ways. Timeline is also available for Facebook Pages that people can use to promote their website or business or event. Although you can change the cover photo as often as you like, it’s meant to be static – something which you design and leave it for at least a few weeks or months like a redesigned website. However, there are times when you may want to change the cover photo frequently and periodically to match event dates or some special promotion that you are running or plan to run. So, here is how you can do that.
