I used these tools on a daily basis. To give you bird’s eye view I work as photographer and graphic artist in our city. I use this tool to develop rush ID pictures and also to entertain myself if I have nothing to do on my laptop computer.

Tool#2 : Adobe Photoshop CS3

• Great for editing pictures and images.
• With Photoshop you can edit the contrast, brightness, resize and crop the photo.

Tool#3: Printers and Scanner

Tool#4: KeepVid and snipmp3 website

• I used it when I’m not doing anything. Primary used for grabbing videos and mp3 for personal use.

• All you need to do is copy the YouTube URL of the video you would like to save and paste it to the KeepVid site. Click go and it will automatically prompt you to proceed and download. Same goes with Snipmp3 site.

• The mobile monitoring software is an application that you install on your love ones cell phones. It lets you see their text messages, calls, pictures, videos and real time location.
