Climsy shares images on your clipboard via Dropbox and Imageshack

Every now and then, there's screen capture or image you stumble across that you just have to share. Climsy is a nice, simple Windows program which makes the process dead simple. It works the way FluffyApp does: take a screenshot or right-click and copy an image to your clipboard in any application, and Climsy will file it to a folder of your choosing or upload to either your Dropbox account,...

Gimp Paint Studio expands GIMP with new brushes, presets

Looking for a way to expand GIMP's default toolset? Have a look at Gimp Paint Studio, a Creative Commons-licensed set of brushes and tool presets that add a wide range of new artistic options to your painter's toolbox. While GPS itself is a fantastic and functional add-on for GIMP, its creators hope that it also provides a spark to encourage others to experiment with the open source photo app's...

Microsoft shows off Windows Live Photo Gallery's Photo Fuse compositing

If you haven't tried Windows Live Photo Gallery 2011, it's definitely worth a download. The Inside Windows Live team has published a blog post showing off two features they find particularly cool: Photo Fuse and image compositing, and pixel-level retouching. A one-time Microsoft Research project, Photo Fuse allows users to makes it easy to combine elements from two similar photos. Got a...

Set an image as your desktop wallpaper in Google Chrome

Chrome's inability to set an image as desktop wallpaper is a shortcoming I've harped on before. It's a feature that just about every non-power user I know who tries Chrome wishes was there -- but even at version 8 Chrome still can't do some things that Internet Explorer 6 could. A little while back, the Chrome Pig extension arrived -- finally bringing a third-party solution. Still, it's a bit...

Add TinEye similar image search to your Google Chrome context menu

TinEye is a slick "reverse lookup" tool that helps you find similar images from a source. It's the kind of thing that would be handy to be able to access from your browser's context menu: see an image you want to search, right click it, and get your results! Firefox users have been able to add this functionality for a while [addon link], and now Google Chrome users have an option as well. A...

Google offers up to a 40% discount on all JPEGs -- with new WebP format!

There's a lot of bandwidth being wasted every single second, and Google thinks they've got a pretty snazzy new way to tackle part of the problem. Behold! The new WebP image format! Following in the freshly-trampled footsteps of its video cousin WebM, Google claims that average savings of about 40% over a comparable JPEG can be achieved. Curiously, the image they chose to provide CNet as an...

ComicRack, eComic reader and library management

First, let me disclaim that I do not read comics, nor manga, and I'm not a huge fan of anime. In fact, the only drawn-art medium that I really like is hentai. But enough about me! Today I've had the pleasure of using ComicRack, an eComics reader and manager. I don't have anything to compare it to, but according to my friends it's the best comic reader out there. I can't really tell you if...

Did Microsoft Russia leak the new Internet Explorer 9 user interface?

This time the leaked Internet Explorer 9 image we're looking at is a bit more trustworthy than the mock-up we received back on April 1st. As Mary Jo Foley reports, the image above was posted by Microsoft's Russian PR site, though the post has since been pulled from the server and now returns a 404 error. If this is the new interface, it's certainly been simplified from the IE8 incarnation. A...

FoxySpider is a Web crawler for image and video enthusiasts

I still remember the day fondly. I was 16 and I had just got my first broadband connection. 512 kilobits of pure DOWNLOAD! Ten times the bandwidth of my dial-up modem! Unlimited traffic! To this day I'm still amazed at how quickly I filled my 20GB hard drive with porn. But that's beyond the point -- back then, you had to either painstakingly Right Click > Save As on every image and video, or...

GooEdit adds a basic image editor to Google Chrome

While there aren't really any examples of full-fledged Google Chrome extension apps in the wild yet, there are a few standard Chrome extensions that do some very app-like things. There's ExtensionFM, for example, which I've talked about before, and now there's GooEdit -- which adds basic image editing kung-fu to Chrome. GooEdit offers a good array of tools. Images can be rotated, flipped, and...

Easy Image Modifier provides free, easy batch image processing

Easy Image Modifier is a simple piece of portable freeware that can rotate, resize, convert, and rename JPG, PNG, and BMP files. I tested it with a bunch of large JPGs (about 1.5MB each). I just dragged the JPGs over it and dropped them. Then, I set the Resize option, set a destination, and clicked the huge button up on top (the one that says "Drop images here." Once you drop them, its text...

Mugtug offers beautiful, powerful sketching and image editing for the Web

Mugtug is one name (and website) for two distinct, and equally impressive, image editing/creation applications: Darkroom is a sophisticated, in-page photo "adjustment" software. Note that I don't use the word "editing." That's because you can't really make selections (unless you want to crop or mirror). You can, however, adjust any image parameter (such as white balance, exposure, contrast, or...

Awesome Screenshot for Google Chrome does annotations, sharing

Folks like those of us on the Download Squad team might have more use for screenshot tools than some, but they're still incredibly handy from time to time even if you're not blogging or designing. If you spend most of your time in your web browser -- and that browser happens to be Google Chrome -- you might want to check out Awesome Screenshot by the folks behind Diigo. What makes it awesome?...

Redo Backup is a fast, easy way to image your hard drive

xPud is a slick little live Linux distribution. Apparently, it also makes a nice foundation for a backup and recovery tool. Redo Backup is just that: a small, speedy Linux live CD that provides an easy way to backup and restore the entire contents of your hard drive. Redo utilizes Partclone for the heavy lifting, and it also provides automatic mounting of Linux and Windows shares so that...

Pick&Zip lets you download any Facebook album as a ZIP or PDF

Despite being the largest image sharing service in the world, Facebook still has a depressingly short list of crippled features when it comes to photo albums. You can add a description, tag friends... aaaand... that's about it. When news broke yesterday about Flickr and Facebook teaming up I actually squealed with delight -- this is it! -- and then I realised it was just Flickr importing your new...
