It takes a lot of imagination to be a good photographer. You need less imagination to be a painter, because you can invent things. But in photography everything is so ordinary; it takes a lot of looking before you learn to see the ordinary.

So I figured I'd write this to tell you about two programs I've found that I like.

A few weeks ago I brought another monitor, so now i have a dual monitor setup. I decided to change my wallpaper today, and since I am currently watching the anime Air Gear I've scanned the images from the two dvd boxes and I wanted to set up both images, each on one screen. So, quick google search and I came across DisplayFusion( http://www.binaryfortress.com/displayfusion/ ) This has allowed me to put different wallpapers on both monitors. From the website the features are...

DisplayFusion: Multi-Monitor Taskbar and Desktop Wallpaper

DisplayFusion will make your dual monitor (or triple monitor or more) experience smooth and painless. With DisplayFusion you can add a taskbar to every monitor that works and looks just like the Windows Taskbar. Or take advantage of advanced multi-monitor wallpaper support, Flickr integration for image searching and fully customizable window management hotkeys. These are just a few of the many things that DisplayFusion can do.

  • Advanced Multi-Monitor Taskbar support
  • Use a different desktop wallpaper image on each monitor
  • Use a desktop wallpaper image that spans all monitors
  • Randomly change your desktop wallpaper using local images or images from Flickr
  • Drag or middle-click the taskbar of maximized windows to move them to other screens
  • Auto-snap windows to the edge of your monitor
  • Integrated Flickr.com image search & download
  • Integrated Vladstudio.com image search & download
  • Manage application windows with fully customizable hotkeys:
    • Move windows to the next monitor
    • Move windows to the next monitor and maximize them
    • Move windows to the centre, top, bottom, left or right side of the monitor
    • Size windows to a configured size or percent of the work area
    • Maximize windows so that they span all monitors
    • Customize your own hotkeys to do anything you can imagine
  • Built-in support for different languages:
    • English English
    • French French
    • German German
    • Spanish Spanish
    • Chinese (Simplified) Chinese (Simplified)

I just installed it a few minutes ago on my Vista 64 desktop and I am loving it right now. You can DOWNLOAD IT from here...

 

Another program I found that came in handy, Instant Eyedropper ( http://instant-eyedropper.com/ ) With this program, instead of taking screenshots and copying into photoshop to pick a specific colorfrom your computer monitor, you can go to your task bar, and drag an eyedropper over the screen and it will instantly give you the HEX code to the color you wanted. Check it out it saved me a lot of time when I was working on my last template, lol. If you want, DOWNLOAD IT here...

 

Both these programs are for windows. Display Fusion requres that you have the Microsoft .Net 2.0 framework. But yes, check them out, I am loving these programs right now. And best of all, they're FREE!!!
