Touch up and archive your photos

Jasc offers both beginning and advanced digital photo­graphers an easy way to organise their photos with its new Paint Shop Photo Album 5 Deluxe. The program's simple, Windows Explorer-like interface and its easy-to-decipher toolbar let every member of the family organise their photos so that they all can find and enjoy their images.

To import photos from your digital camera (or memory card reader), you just click the Camera button. You can use the batch command to rename and resize entire folders full of images in a few clicks. The software lets you assign your own keywords to photos and their folders, which makes for easy cross-referencing. An intuitive file tree helps you find images anywhere they reside on your computer.

The clean interface allows you to toggle among keyword, calendar, and folder views. Version 5 also offers PhotoSafe, which archives your pictures to ensure that you never lose a precious image. Working with your own reminder settings (based on adjustable parameters such as the time elapsed or file size), PhotoSafe warns you when it's time to back up your photos.

In addition, Jasc throws in some basic image editing features such as red-eye reduction and a pano­rama maker. Although no substitute for real image editing software, the extras easily handle basic fixes.

Paint Shop Photo Album 5 Deluxe has an intuitive interface and powerful organisational capabilities. Throw in extras like archiving and you have an excellent program.

If you’re looking to invest in your next work horse laptop for work or home use, you can’t go wrong with the MSI GE63.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.

I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.
