gimp

Gimp

GIMP (or GNU Image Manipulation Program) is another open-source project providing you with a free alternative to Adobe's PhotoShop.

 

Like Photoshop, there is a bit of a learning curve involved. GIMP does take a bit of getting used to in that many of the same features offered in Photo Shop aren't always called the same thing in GIMP. (For example, resizing in GIMP is cropping in PhotoShop.) But if you are not inclined to spend hundreds of Rand's on PhotoShop, GIMP is a great way to get into photo retouching, image composition, and image authoring.

dyndns

DynDNS Updater

If you're like most DynDNS.com customers, you have a dynamic IP address which changes periodically (monthly, weekly or even daily). This can make it difficult or impossible to connect to services at home, like remote desktop or FTP.

Using an update client with your Dynamic DNS or Custom DNS hostname allows you to make sure you can always reach your home network, because it makes sure that your hostname is always up-to-date with the latest IP address. The update client runs in the background, so once you have it properly configured you don't have to worry about it; you only need to remember your hostname to reach your files and services.
