6 Instagram Hashtags to Find and Inspire Creative Photos

While Instagram is full of self-takes (selfies), lunch specials and beautiful beaches, you can go beyond the common photo types to find those unique to Instagram. Use the right hashtags (keywords), and others doing the same things will see your specialty photos. Who knows? You could become Instagram-famous, and at a minimum, lift your photostream out of the ordinary.
This hashtag can provide hours of entertainment. Look for faces in inanimate objects around you — say, the headlights and fender of an old truck that together resemble a grinning face.
You can modify this hashtag by adding a place name at the end of it, such as #iseefacesbarcelona or #iseefacesinmykitchen. Use Instagram's "Explore" feature to search variations on a hashtag and find the popular ones — or start your own. (If you go the original route, use both the popular hashtag and your own when you post a photo.)

Another favorite, #jumpstagram, is a little trickier to capture, especially if you're alone. The hashtag indicates a photo showing the subject in mid-air. If you're on your own, you'll need a timer app, such as the $0.99 Apimac Self Timer for iPhone and iPad, or the free Camera FV5 Lite for Android. You'll also need a tripod that can you can set low to the ground, like a flexible GorillaPod , available from Joby for $20.

You want the camera not only near the ground, but also tilted up. If you're taking a photo of a friend, press and hold the shutter button, and release it as soon as the jump begins. (Those using a timer should set it to about 10 seconds, then run into position to make the jump.)

One of the original Instagram hashtags , #fromwhereistand means pointing the camera at your feet and including a little background to give viewers an idea of your location. Instagrammers frequently use this hashtag for travel pictures, and it makes a welcome addition to the usual scenic photos.

#throwbackthursday and other weekday shots
Hashtags have also spawned day-of-the-week traditions, such as #throwbackthursday

when users post photos from their pasts. (You can finally drag out those adorable baby pitures and post them without looking ridiculous.)

Other daily hashtags include #manimonday (a day to post a photo of your nails, often while holding the bottle of polish you used) and selfiesunday (that's right, another day to post a self portrait). Alternately, if you've been out with friends on Sunday, use #sundayfunday.

The hashtag #ootd stands for outfit-of-the-day and is usually a selfie. Standing in front of a mirror is the most popular way to do it, made famous by @oscarprgirl. Don't worry about hiding your camera from the mirror; including it is part of this genre.
If you are wearing a similar outfit to someone else, intentionally or not, take a photo and tag it #twinning.

#porn series
No, this has nothing to do with sex. (Instagram user policy prohibits nudity.) In this case, porn refers to a category of especially beautiful photos, such as "food porn." 

Instagram  contains a glut of meal pictures, so you might consider a different kind of "porn," such as photos of the sky. More than 3 million Instagram photos have gotten the #skyporn tag. #Cloudporn has a similar number of photos. You can tack "porn " to just about any photo-related noun to create a hashtag that is sure to be popular with fellow enthusiasts — #bikeporn, #beachporn, #rockporn.

5 Top Rumor for 2013

In 2013, there are probably more rumor’s in gadget world then in any other earth cracking or disaster’s. We have survived the Dec 21 trauma, and now we are ready to take some more. Gadgets are preferably the most easy targets to get caught in rumor’s as photo editing has become more and more easy and effective.

On any social network you would probably see photo manipulations on your timeline. Here in this post we have collected 5 best and top of the top rumor’s for 2013 all related to gadgets. I hope to see more rumor’s in line for this year as it proceeds further.

Amazon Smartphone

amazon office

Having successfully entered the tablet market with the Kindle Fire, could Amazon’s next product launch be an iPhone-rivalling Kindle phone? “Anonymous sources” say so, and suggest the Android-modified handset could be bundled with a 4G data package to add extra value.

Apple TV set

iTV or iPanel

Rumours suggest that Apple will launch a dedicated TV set in the first half of 2013. Possibly called the iScreen or iPanel (it already has a set-top box called Apple TV), this could offer streaming TV, film and games services; have built-in Siri and FaceTime; and be controlled using your iPhone or iPad.

Google mobile network

Google mobile network

The Wall Street Journal says talks are “well on the way” for Google and the US satellite company Dish to team up on a 4G wireless broadband service. The success of Android phones and tablets makes this a logical step, but could we see a Google-branded high-speed mobile network launch over here?

SkyDrive Music Player

SkyDrive Music Player

Microsoft may add a cloud music player to its online storage service, SkyDrive. As with Amazon and Google, the player will scan and match tracks you already have, as well as letting you play songs you buy from the Xbox Music Store.

iPlayer Playlister

The BBC is allegedly working on music version of the iPlayer, which would let you stream thousands of songs from its archives to your PC, TV or mobile device for free. The service could be help up by licensing issues and potential objections from the likes of iTunes, but it sounds like a top idea to us!
will make another good post on it in upcoming posts.

10 Best Free Software Downloads for Feb 2013

With 2013, the software market is booming like anything, every day, every hour there is something coming new and due to the immense competition the quality of products has been increased considerably.

We make an extra effort now and then to make a list of best software launched or revamped in previous months, this time we have collected ten best free software for feb 2013. Let us know which of the following free software gives you a piece of mind while using it. With great interfaces and marvellous typography these software have made me say wow.

1. Bitdefender 60 Second Virus Scanner – Anti-Virus Tool : 

Min requirements Windows XP/Vista/7/8 File size : 156KB (installer) 
The problem with a lot of anti-virus programs is that they take ages to scan your system and often hog important resources, making it difficult to use your computer for other tasks. As you can probably guess from the name, Bitdefender’s 60-Second Virus Scanner is different. It’s light, super-fast and, while it certainly won’t replace your existing security software, it’s handy to have as a second line of defence.
The interface is a simple widget that sits on your Desktop and can be repositioned or shrunk down to the System Tray. To run a scan simply click the magnifying glass in the centre of the widget and watch the timer as it counts down the brief scanning time.
While the first scan does indeed take just 60 seconds to complete, subsequent checks are considerably faster. On our test PC, the average time after five scans was just 26.3 seconds. Fifteen scans later, the time had dropped to 17.1 sec. The scan is so fast because it’s carried out in the cloud, which means the data is analysed online and only checks a few critical system areas. According to the report it generates, 60-Second Virus Scanner targets around 30 or so processes and just over 1000 files. The program settings let you change the scan frequency (this can be daily, weekly or monthly); Choose if you want the scanner to start alongside Windows; and turn real-time scanning on or off.

2. Collapse, Collide – Game 

Min requirements: Windows XP/Vista/7/8
Collapse, Collide is a short, experimental platform game that uses some stylish pixel art. You control a character who can cling to walls and jump when falling – two tricks that prove very helpful for getting you through the levels. There are secret areas to discover, and a hard mode that does away with checkpoints to make the game more challenging.

3. SoftPerfect WiFi Guard - Wifi Scanner

Min requirements: Windows XP/Vista/7/8, Mac OS X or Linux
If you suspect someone may be accessing your Wi-Fi without your permission, this free tool can find out. It will scan your network and present you with a list of connected devices, telling you when they were last active, and flashing up a warning if it detects any unrecognised ones. If you know a device is safe, you can tell Wi-Fi Guard and it won’t warn you about it again. The program can scan your network automatically at predetermined intervals.

4. UndeleteMyFiles Pro 3.1 – Data Recovery Tool

Min requlrements: Windows XP/Vista/7/8 Flle size: 1.3MB
SeriousBit usually charges money for the full versions of its Windows programs, but it has released the latest version of UndeleteMyFiles Pro for free. The suite offers a selection of tools, including File Rescue, Files Wiper, Media Recover, Emergency Disk Image, Deleted File Search and Mail Rescue. The rescue and recovery tools are very easy to use and do a good job of finding and restoring any accidentally deleted files.

Antivirus Software That Won’t Slow Down the PC

Choosing the least memory intensive antivirus solution is not an easy task, especially when there are a lot of options in the market, all promising protection at the highest levels with no compromises made towards computer speed. From my own experience, and from those of others, I’ve learned that only some products care about computer resources when implementing defensive solutions.

Although some big names in the industry have managed to create powerful products, that keep the system far away from any attacker, we’ve seen that in some cases the power needed to protect the computer disrupts the navigation experience, which is undesirable, at the least. So, today, we are about to venture and discover the most appropriate antivirus solutions that consume small hardware resources and manage not to slow the computer, at least distinctively.

Antivirus software with low resource footprints


Before presenting the options, you must first be aware of some key aspects and basic elements. An antivirus relies on hardware, like any other software installed on a computer, to run and on other elements to process the information. The complexity and the level of the antivirus, describes how much resources it needs to run all of its algorithm.
On the other hand, good developers can optimize the software to consume fewer resources than others, thus drastically downsizing memory requirements and processor load.

Avast (Free & Pro)

Avast scored great in our quest for finding the best free antivirus for 2012, and one of the top reasons for the high score was its low resource usage while protecting the PC. You get top notch protection on your computer, emails, downloads and IMs. And its powerful heuristics engine allows it to find almost every virus around. All these without hogging down your PC.

Microsoft Security Essentials (Free)

Microsoft has strongly ramped up their security game and have improved the Security Essentials software over the past few years. It’s effective, incredibly easy to use, free to download and is perfectly integrated with Windows operating system. This helps a great deal in reducing its memory footprint. For someone looking for a basic security suite, MSE is an ideal candidate.

PC Tools AntiVirus v9.1 (free)

PC Tools AntiVirus 9.1 is the latest protection tool by a company partnering with Symantec and known for its defensive solutions. The software is capable of protecting the PC against usual viruses, worms and Trojans, using a rapid updating system and a real-time scan known as IntelliGuard. The PC Tools solution also comes with an advanced functionality tool that allows scanning and removing boot sector viruses. Also, from what we’ve seen until now, it’s one of the lightest protection solution on the market. It only requires a computer with 256 MB of RAM to function, and a processor with just 300 MHz.

Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2013


Surprised? Don’t be. Kaspersky is one of the toughest names on the market. After being a satisfied customer for the past two years, I consider Kaspersky as the Rambo of all security tools: merciless with its enemies. Kaspersky, in general, is able to remove some Windows-files if requested by the user and gets very angry when you try to shut down protection for good, if you don’t know how to do it properly.

Specifically, Anti-Virus 2013 can be considered as a first level defense and a lighter version of more advanced tools, such as Internet Security or Pure. But, without question, is a good tool to have and one that treats computer resources nicely, without burdening and slowing the system down.

Above all presented, Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2013 is optimized to have a low impact on network activity and other processes overall, like installing new programs, launching web browsers and others. In addition, the solution comes with a Gaming mode that will surely prove helpful.

Other worthy variants

There are also other names that worth taking a look at. The following list has been ordered by resource optimization, with the top names being the most friendly:
  • Norton Antivirus 2013 – one of the most popular antivirus software. It has improved loads in terms of low memory footprint in recent years.
  • Eset Nod 32 – Another popular security suite with low memory footprint.
  • Spyware Terminator 2012: coming in two versions, one free and one paid, the Terminator is a light defensive solution which will protect you against usual threats.
  • BitDefender Internet Security 2013: one of the best solutions I’ve experienced in a while, BIS 2013 is a highly advanced protection tool that protects the computer pretty much against any known threats

How to Change The System Partition to Different Disk in Windows 8

Recently ( I know it’s late) I have switched to Windows 8 from Windows 7 completely and physically. I was having two physical hard disks and Windows 7 64 bit and 32 bit on each disks. One more new hard disk was added for Windows 8 and it worked great. But, my main idea was to utilize other old physical disks space and get rid of Windows 7 completely. There was a catch and I stuck. Even though I have booted my computer from Windows 8 (from newly added hard disk), I could not format a particular partition which was created earlier while installing Windows 7 on different disk. That was the ‘System’ partition on my computer.

I had to make another partition as system partition to be able to format the particular partition. In this small guide I show how to change the system partition to different disk in Windows 8.

By the way, what is System partition?, System partition is the one having the information which will be read firstly by booting process, basically it tells the hardware to where to look for Windows booting files. You can find more information here at Microsoft.

In my case even though I have connected the new hard disk on SATA 0 port, that’s why the disk has become Disk 0, but the Disk 1 was having the system partition earlier. I missed to take the screenshot before the changes, but I’m sure below screenshot will give an idea how it was.

how was it before
I found several suggestions on internet to change the system partition to different disk, but they did not work. Here is the easy way I found to change the system partition to different disk on Windows 8.

Change The System Partition to Different Disk in Windows 8

1) Restart the Windows 8 computer and login to BIOS.
2) Change the hard disk boot priority. Make the hard disk where you want to have system partition as first boot hard disk.
In my example, Disk 1 (SATA Port 1) was set as the first boot hard disk. I changed Disk 0 ( SATA port 0) as the first boot hard disk.
Save the BIOS changes and reboot the machine.
3) Do not panic, probably your Windows 8 will not boot now. Because there is no system partition (or information) on the first boot hard drive now. You need to have Windows 8 bootable DVD to boot the machine.
4) Boot the machine with Windows 8 DVD and select ‘Advanced options’ under Troubleshoot. Here you need to select ‘Automatic Repair’.

Select windows 8 startup repair advanced startup repair windows 8
Windows 8 will automatically detect and repair the startup issues, I assume during this process it makes the first partition of first boot hard disk as ‘System’ partition.
5) Once repair completed and rebooted successfully, you can use Windows 8 without any issues. Now if you go to disk manager, you could see that System partition had been moved to different disk where you wanted.

Now you can format or delete the other partition which was system partition earlier. In this way I successful managed to move the system partition in Windows 8 to different hard disk/partition.

moved partition
I hope this helps someone Smile

HomeSoftware8 Best OCR apps for iOS

Optical Character Recognition is the wonder technology that was supposed to deliver us the paperless office. The promise of OCR was to convert all our paper documents into digital form. Despite our best efforts, paper continues to arrive on desks, and the chore of feeding each sheet into a scanner, then filing the result, has proved just too much effort for most of us to cope with. Even dedicated scanners like the PaperPort, which sit neatly behind your keyboard and process one page at a time, haven’t been enough to free us from the deluge of printed material.

With the enhanced cameras now ability to scan documents on the go – and to store them neatly and conveniently in a compact, readable and highly searchable manner. The principle is straight forward: you photograph a page of text with your iphone, and the app turns the result into readable text.
Most of the apps featured will work with any iOS device, including the iPod touch and iPad, but do check the requirements in the App Store before you buy. So, here are the 8 best OCR apps for your iOS devices.

8. Text Grabber $3 approx.
Text Grabber can recognise a huge range of languages, from Afrikaans to Welsh, and can translate scanned text from one language to another. It not only word-wraps perfectly, but even interprets hyphenated words at the ends of lines and joins them together again, which is a real bonus.

7. Doc Scanner $3 approx.
Doc Scanner is a big on auto detection: it will detect the document edges and document type, and even wait until you’re holding your device steady to take a photo. but its algorithms are off-kilter. while trying to frame the image in the iOS window, a dancing red outline leaps all over the place. It can’t be set manually.
It did word-wrap the document and can recognise text in several languages, but needs a long hold on the OCR button before it will perform its task. Scanned images can be emailed ad PDFs, but plain text must be copied and pasted out.

6. Imageto Text Free
This curious app has the simplest interface of all: you can take a new photo or choose one from your library, and then you just press the button to convert it. you’re given the opportunity to send the resulting text to Evernote, or by email. at no point are you allowed to view the text directly, which means the only way you can copy it into another is first to email it to yourself.
Imageto Text was the most accurate app of the lot in terms of character recognition errors, but fail to word-wrap.

5. Mobile OCR free
This free app recognises English, German, french, Spanish and thai; a paid version ($3 approx.) adds 25 more languages. There’s no way to square up the image after capture, which makes recognition less accurate unless you’re extremely careful.
Mobile OCR couldn’t word-wrap lines, or deal with hyphens at the ends of lines. The resulting text, couldn’t be saved or emailed, only copied and pasted into another app.

4. Quick Reader $.99
QuickReader is heavy on choices, with no less than 13 buttons offered on the opening screen, including those for sharing results with Twitter and Facebook. for an iPhone app, this is pretty cluttered. This is one of the few products that allowed editing of text directly within the app. Files have to be given a name before they can be saved or emailed.
It cannot word wrap line endings and had trouble with drop cap.

3. Skootch $.99
Skootch has a friendly interface –  so friendly it won’t let you begin until you’ve told it your email address. It shows the captured image behind a square selection area, but a page of text is likely to extend above and below this, so skootch helpfully advices you to ‘Move and scale’ it. But although we could enlarge the text, we couldn’t reduce it enough to fit in the square, so the bottom few lines of the text can be missed. There’s no word wrap and had trouble with drop cap.

2. Prizmo $11 approx.
With the highest price tag, Prizmo offered the most features. The image can be rotated, cropped and adjusted for perspective, and separate White Picker and content slider help convert it to pure black and white.
The text can be translated between languages, copied, emailed or sent to Dropbox, Evernote or the cloud. There’s even a function for reading it aloud, using more or less naturalistic voices available for $2 each approx.

1. Perfect OCR $4 approx.
Although it can work with a single shot, Perfect OCR prefers to use its ‘SureScan 3x’ technique to optimise the photographed image. this involves you taking not one but three separate shots of the page you want to convert. after capture, a single image is shown – presumably a composite of your three shots – with a strong ruby overlay. you adjust the corners of the overlay to form a frame around the scan, thus squaring it up to enable better recognition. Next, the image is shown squared-up and in stark black and white, with five button for you to identify the blackest text with the least show-through from the page behind. Only after completing these steps will the app proceed to interpret the text. It word wrapped correctly and outperformed all the other apps by a wide margin and proved that if it’s not quite perfect, it’s the next best thing.
