||FileZilla is a powerful FTP-client for Windows 9x, ME, NT4, 2000 and XP.
||Free for Personal, Educational and Non-Profit use
||Even more powerful than FileZilla.
||Using WinSCP it is possible to connect to a SSH (Secure SHell) server with
SFTP (SSH File Transfer Protocol) or SCP (Secure Copy Protocol) service,
mainly to UNIX machines. It's more secure than FTP as your password is not
sent in plain text over the internet.
||Free evaluation, full version - $25.
||Console file manager with FTP client, text editor, file viewer, extensive system
of plug-ins and much more. Free and not time
limited evaluation version is more than sufficient for most tasks.
||If you have $30, fast connection and don't like separate FTP clients - this
might be useful.
Most digital cameras produce JPEGs with aspect ratio 4:3 (1600x1200, 2048x1536 etc).
At the same time most photo paper sizes have different aspect ratio (4"x6" => 3:2,
8"x10" => 5:4 etc). Photolabs will do the cropping for you, of course, but
there is a risk of losing somebody's head or other imporant part of the
picture so it's safer to crop images yourself.
Dedicated image editors can do the cropping too, but when it comes to cropping 50 images it
gets rather time consuming. Also the editors would recompress JPEG and compromise (slightly)
image quality. JPEGCrops isn't a real image editor: it just
rotates and crops losslessly, without recompressing. And it's fast and it's free.
Similar to JPEGCrops above but with different user interface. The site is in Czech,
but the program has English UI as well.
ImageMagick is a great collection of tools to read, write, and manipulate
an image in many image
formats (over 89 major formats) including popular formats like TIFF, JPEG, PNG, PDF,
PhotoCD, and GIF.
I use MOGRIFY very often to recompress full-size JPEG images before
uploading to the web-site. With JPEG quality 85-90 it shrinks JPEGs produced
by my Canon S40 camera to 40-50% of their original size (i.e. ~700-900KB out of 2MB).
||Free for non-commercial use
||Graphics viewer for Windows. Not quite ACDSee, but does not cost $50 either.
||Free utility to extract and modify image EXIF information. DAlbum EXIF parser
is based on its source code.
|PHP file managers|
|Invision Power File Manager
||Easy to install and use PHP file manager.
|Comet File Manager
||Great explorer-like interface and tons of functionality. List of system
requirements is a bit long though.
||Very small, simple and it works!
