RealWorld Paint.COM is a powerful new image editor

Although there are plenty of free image editors to choose from, I’m yet to find one which I can call perfect. Gimp comes close but it’s still rather limited in comparison to Photoshop. Paint.Net is good for lighter editing jobs. Recently, I stumbled across a new one - RealWorld Paint.COM.

My initial impression on RealWorld Paint.COM was mixed. Going through the contents of the menus I could see that there are several good features. On the other hand, the toolbar looked completely alien and messy. Most of their icons are non-standard. You can’t make out what a particular button did unless you hover the mouse over it and wait for the tooltip to appear.

RealWorld Paint.COM supports layer and is capable of applying a handful of layer effects like drop shadow, bevel and polar transformation - a feature which is absent in Paint.Net. It also supports Masks and has a couple of image filter effects. An very interesting feature is that RealWorld Paint.COM can import Photoshop filters into the program.

Most of the usual tools are present – brushes, brush hardness, flow settings, gradient fill, magic wand, transparency, color correction and so on.

The biggest handicap is the absence of the History window. I wonder how many users will be able to deal with that?

The task manager is ideal for real-time analysis of CPU and memory utilization. It even displays a short history of CPU utilization in the form of a graph. You get a small time-window, about 30 seconds or so, depending on how large the viewing area is.

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.
