I just want to share another interesting site I stumbled upon recently.
The site is called It's a web based photo editor, and you can join for free or premium account.

Now, let me tell you that I'm impressed with their simple, user friendly interface. In no time, I was able to transform a boring picture into a stunning piece of art.

Here's the original picture I uploaded. Click it to see the larger view.

Inside, I clicked on Edit tab, where you can use the edit tools like Auto-fix, Rotate, Crop, Resize, Exposure, Colors, Sharpen and Red-Eye.

On my photo, I didn't use any of it so I went striaght to Create Tab. There you can find Effects, Texts Shapes, Touch-up and Frames.

I clicked on Effects, chose the black and white, and Soften, applied to it. Then I chose the area on the the lower part of Enzo, to focus on rubicks puzzles and his multicolored converse shoes, then applied the Focal B&W.

Then I clicked on Text tab to add the annotation "Enzo&Gian Rubicks Cube Competition" Note that the texts are separated individually, because I can't change them in different colors.

Finally, I clicked on shapes, chose the square, and add them in different colors.

Ooops, before I forgot, the last thing I did was the frame with round edges
effect, which I added under the Frames tab. That's it.

Here's the resulting image. Click it to see larger view.

What do you think? If you want to try, just go to this site and join. If you want to give the premium service a spin, Picnik is offering users a one-week free trial. and you'll be able to sign up for it on Picnik's front page.

Oh, here's another version of the photo I edited.

My Dream Gadget is Out

My dear Chelzsky asked me to reset her iPod Video because
Gian our 2 year old super duper active kulet son played on it.
He listens to High School Musical hits. Now, she can't hear
the music.

Hmm, I did a backup first and tried to reset it back to original
factory setting inside iTunes. Then I copied back all of 300
photos inside, put some few CD albums and hand it back to her.

As I was browsing the net this morning, I learned that the new
generation iPod called iPod Touch is out in US. Also, according
to Apple, this new model, which is excatly same size as iPhone
but thinner, will be shipped in few weeks worldwide.

Come October and November, Many Hong Kong peeps will surely grab
this toy. I think iPod still has the most number of users here.
