Web Design Tip: Crop Photos Quickly without Photoshop
People often ask for a web design tip regarding easy image cropping. There have always been a few decent options available, but most of them have involved buying a desktop graphics software package and spending lots of hours learning how to use it.
Difficulty cropping photos has kept a lot of people who would otherwise do more writing for the web and photo blogging from being active in those pursuits.
No more. There are now many options for cropping photos on the web, and one of the newest, easiest-to-use options for quickly cropping your photos is Cropp.me.
Super easy to use, hands-off, and free spells "yee-haw!" in my book. Just choose the photos you want to crop and upload them. You can pre-set sizes and other aspects of the finished product, and Cropp.me intelligently crops the photos based on the content of the image.
Brilliant! Cross photo cropping off of your list of reasons not to be blogging or updating your web content more frequently.
What other problems do you have with keeping your website up to date?
