Riot - Radical Image Optimization Tool

This is a wonderful little tool that gets better with every update. Pictures can be very useful, as part of coursework, or illustrating a point in a presentation, or a website. But it is always good to have it at the right size, to speed up loading, and for when you email it. The latest version now has Brightness and Contrast control.

Claro Capture

While recently looking for a "research" tool for capturing text from the internet, I came across Claro Capture. Well worth having a look at. It is reasonably cheap (around €20) and there is a free trial.

Rather than list all the feature (most of which are best seen visually on their webpage) just click on the link for details.
