View Better & Faster With The Latest Free, Reliable PDF Viewer


PDF is one of the most widely used apps today mostly for commercial purposes (more often than not when you buy goods online, you find them talking about the terms and conditions). I am not here to explain what a PDF is, as most of you’ll will be knowing. PDF and Adobe Acrobat are inseperable for many. They think its one and the same – hey, folks hold on, that’s not the case! Adobe Acrobat is a brand name but there are others in the market too.

I tried out Foxit Reader and personally think that it has the potential to beat the all-so-popular brand name in the immediate future. Talk about speed performance and space occupation it beats the latter right, left and center! The installation file is just 1.7 MB while Adobe Acrobat is 20.8 MB. Its reliable too, apart from being simple and user friendly.

About Foxit – The program is simple to use and has a simple, straightforward look. It has several toolbars like search tool, rotating, image snapshot, text selection, zoom, etc. We can deactivate the small advertisement on the upper corner by clicking the deselect advertisement option, which I think is a very good option as you need not bother about those irritating pop-ups from time to time.

Other features that are worth mentioning – It comes with PDF conversion and PDF edition, which you do not have to search separate software for these options. it helps to edit the PDF files and convert word documents into PDF files. There is also an option for the users to install virtual printer driver, which it serves them to convert any type of windows application.

Ease of use, less space and plenty of feartures puts Foxit on the pedestal for me. You can try it out instead of Adobe next time and see for yourself. Let me know if you think otherwise!

My Choice Of The Best Photo Editing Software


In my little experience with photo editing, I must confess that not everyone has the technical ability to work with Photoshop. Though it is one of the best photo editing software in the market, there are hundreds of alternative photo editing software easily available. They may not be technically advanced but has the best photo editing options to create excellent photos.

Among the latest to hit the market, in my opinion GIMP is one of the best options available. GIMP is a free and the latest alternative to Photoshop. It has basic to advanced features like sir brushing, cropping, nested layers and gradients creation. It serves perfect for anyone irrespective of whether you are a starter or an advanced photo editor. Each photo appears in a new window, where you can use the options and GIMP toolbar to edit the pictures. Beginners would gain a better learning experience, while the experienced editors can explore their creativity using the GIMP.

Today, we see many photo editing software easily available on the internet. Due to the increasing use of home photo printers and digital cameras, the demand for photo editing applications is rising by the day. It helps people to give their pictures a professional touch. Moreover, you do not have to waste huge money or time depending on photo editors.

It is easy to learn these software programs as they come with a tutorial or manual book, hence every Joe can give it a try. Some of the other popular photo editing software available this day and age (in case you want to have a look at them too) – Photoscape, Picasa, Photos POs Pro, etc. These help to format your photos quick and easy. The users can resize and change its position as per their needs. They serve great for designing purposes. They support all formats including JPG, BMP and GIF images.

Such software has equal features like the paid ones. However, in the little that I have seen, Photo GIMP is the best user friendly application that allows you to resize, edit, manipulate and paint draw your favorite images in several ways. The full version is available for a reasonable price. I recommend that those who are looking to experiment their photo editing skills a little further buy the premium version.
