    by Tagged No tags 0 comments Add comment
    There are a lot of sources for stock photography, but most of those sources aren't faith-oriented and it can take hours searching those sites and still come up with little to nothing really usable.  We've found that Lightstock is the best place for images and videos that focus on faith, and we'd like to share that with you.

    TueTuesdayJulJuly16th2013 No Photoshop? No Problem!
    byDavid Pohlmeier Tagged Church Technology 0 comments Add comment
    Building a website is more than just text. Graphics and images play an important role in how your church or ministry is presented online. It's also important that images are created the correct size and at the correct resolution to ensure they can be viewed quickly and accurately.

    For the best experience, Adobe Photoshop is the industry standard. There are other options. We did a write-up on Pixelmator, a Mac app for just $14.99.

    Today, I stumbled upon something entirely different, a web app called Pixlr. It's interesting because Pixlr seems to work just in your web browser and provides a fairly complete Photoshop like experience. There also doesn't seem to be any sort of cost associated with using the product. I edited a few photos, save them to my computer and it all seemed to work great. Creating graphics and re-sizing images appear to be a breeze with this product.

    Below is a screenshot of the editing screen. As you can see, it's fairly similar to what you'd expect from a Photoshop alternative.

    Have you had any experience using this or a similar product? We'd love to hear your comments.
