Optimizilla is "yet another" online image compressor. It's an easy way to drag and drop 20 images.
It's good, however it doesn't beat the compression done by shortpixel.com. In my test, I compressed the same image using Optimizilla and ShortPixel. Optimizilla was able to compress the image 13% while ShortPixel was able to compress the image by 65%.
This online image optimizer uses a smart combination of the best optimization and lossy compression algorithms to shrink JPEG and PNG images to the minimum possible size while keeping the required level of quality.
Upload up to 20 images. Wait for the compression to finish. Click thumbnails in the queue for quality setting. Use the slider to control the compression level and mouse/gestures to compare images.

DTV Reception Maps
Did you know that the FCC has a handy chart to show the channels that you should be able to pick up using your Over The Air TV antenna? This is the DTV Reception Maps page on the FCC website.
The nice thing about this page is that it helps you figure out which size antenna that you should get.
I ran this at my address and can confirm that it is very accurate. We get the channels that we should be getting based on our antenna range.
Use this program to check for the DTV signals that are available at your location. Enter your address in the box below and click Go! The DTV coverage map will list all stations in your area.
Sometimes stations change the frequency on which they broadcast ? the channel a viewer selects to watch a particular station remains the same but the frequency that the viewer?s television finds the station on changes -- requiring viewers who use an over-the-air antenna to rescan their tuners to locate the station's new signal.

Stolen Camera Finder
Have you ever lost a camera? Frustrated that you can't get the camera back? Well, there may be hope!
StolenCameraFinder can find out if someone posting photos with your camera!
Simply drag and drop an old photo that was taken with the camera, and StolenCameraFinder will search the internet for the serial number that is hidden in the photo metadata.
StolenCameraFinder currently support 1,534 cameras. You can see all the supported cameras on their website.
Every photo you take with your digital camera contains hidden information about both the image and the camera such as the make, model, and date. This information, called EXIF data, can also include a unique serial number that identifies your camera.
stolencamerafinder crawls the internet searching for photos, collecting the serial numbers of the cameras that took them.
When you use the drag & drop feature, stolencamerafinder reads the unique serial number from the EXIF data of your photo and uses it to match against serial numbers it has stored.
If StolenCameraFinder can't find your photo, it will recommend places to report your camera stolen (or lost).
Note: This won't work for smartphones as they don't store serial numbers in their photos. Maybe Apple should change this in the new iPhone?
When it comes to video editing, there are a lot of choices. One new player on the market that is making noise is Veed.io.
Veed.io is a great online post production editor. It?s a great resource to make quick clip edits and touch ups.
You can try out Veed.io for free with a watermark and an 50gb upload limit. If you like it they have some competitive monthly/year pricing that removes the watermark and increase the file upload size.
As of this writing, these are the main features of Veed.io.
Add Images to Video - Add logos and photos to any video. You can add it for the whole video or just certain parts.
Add Subtitles to Video - You can add your own subtitles using your own style and design. You can save the style to use in other videos
Auto Subtitle - Automatically generate subtitles from the audio of the video. How cool is that!
Filter Video Online -You can easily change the overall color to match various styles. Pick filters that best fit the mood that you are trying to come across.
Music Visualisation - Add an audio visual to your video so that it moves as music or words are spoken. Useful if you have an audio track with a static image.
Translate Video - Easily add translation subtitles to your videos to reach larger markets! Now you can start promoting your services/podcast to different countries.
Video Effects - Add effects such as VHS Filter, Filmic, Snow Effect, and Glitch Effect
Note: The veed.io team are consistently launching new features. So expect to see new features soon!
Veed.io is an online editor and it works great with the iPhone. You can upload a video from your phone and apply any style or effect.
Now you can be a production expert right from your phone!
Check out the sample video that I created.
I had an old Traffic Report from 2002. I added the logo and automatic subtitles to give it a really cool effect. Note: I didn't touch up the subtitles. There are a few places where a break or word needed to get fixed - which you can easily do in Veed. I just wanted to demo that effect.
The two things that impress me with veed.io are:
- Automatic Subtitles - This is a cool feature that I haven?t seen elsewhere. More and more videos are adding subtitles as people don?t have sound on when they are browsing social media. Veed makes adding subtitles super easy.
- Music Visualisation - This is also hard to find. You can buy plugins for Final Cut Pro, but they are very expensive. Veed makes it easy to place the visualization and offers different styles to choose from.
I would encourage people to check out veed.io and play around with the tools.
