PicPick – Toolbox of Awesome – FreeFile Review

FFR-WP-logo

picpickPicPick is a toolbox full of utilities for graphics/design work. It combines eight tools into one neat package. A screen ruler, screen protractor, color picker, magnifier, and an excellent screen capture utility are the main tools in PicPick. It is for Windows only and is free for personal use.
The best feature of PicPick is how well all of the tools are integrated. Installation is very quick and problem-free with only one .EXE needed. The program is pinned to the taskbar during installation, so that any of the eight tools are available by right-clicking the pinned icon. This makes it very convenient to launch any of the tools. The portable version of PicPick will require manually pinning it to the Taskbar (not a big deal). The tools can also be launched through a desktop shortcut. I found all of the tools to be both simple and effective. The screen capture tool has top-notch features, such as image adjustments, drawing tools, and Save as PDF. I wish that the Color Picker and Color Palette tools had more options for adjusting/mixing colors, but overall, they are simple to use and effective. Rounding out the tool kit are a Cross Hair tool, to determine the pixel coordinates of any object on your screen and a White Board tool for making freehand notes on your screen.
– – The Bottom Line – –
Certainly, if you do any graphics/design work, you regularly use one or two tools similar to these, but having eight great tools in one little package is too good to pass up. PicPick is free for personal use.

Mr. Cat Poop – Strange Titles For Well Known Movies In Foreign Countries

349602_v1

Cracked found 9 bizarrely retitled movies –

Some filmmakers spend literally years trying to think of a movie title that will strike the right balance between “this doesn’t sound completely stupid” and “this will make me filthy rich.” It may not always look like it, but there’s a lot of effort, a lot of money, and a lot of hard drinking behind even the simplest of movie titles … all of which goes out the window once that movie ships overseas and needs to make sense in another language.

As we’ve shown you before, translating titles isn’t as easy as it looks, since they so often contain some idiom or pun that would be complete nonsense directly translated in another language (and, as you’ll see, this works both ways). It forces distributors to get creative, and sometimes the results are amazing:
