Image resize manipulation text tools

One of them is https://www.remove.bg/ – BG meaning background. Unbelievable website where you take a photo such as a headshot, you upload it to the website, and a few seconds later it’s removed the entire background. And it even turns it into a transparent png for you.

Another great website is http://www.picresize.com/ With this website tool you can rotate photos, flip photos, resize them, and save them as a different version. You’ve got JPGs, GIFs, PNGs, BMPs. You can even apply special effects. And the special effects are like, you can blur it, you can do grayscale it, you can make it look like it’s scorched.

Another couple quick websites that you can use as part of your toolkit is https://cooltext.com/ and https://flamingtext.com/ where you can create an instant logo or heading for your website by typing in some text, change the look, and add many special effects to the fonts that are available.

“Frequently I need to send out large files to people. What many don’t realize is most email servers have issues with file attachments above 10 megabytes. Here is something for you to consider.

There’s another website that you should be aware of, and it’s called https://wetransfer.com/ It’s great because you don’t have to register for it, you don’t need an account, all you do is you put in an email address of where you want to send the large files and then you just upload the files.

You can upload as many as you want, up to 2GB (gigabytes) total limit. But you can do it multiple times if you have many files that you want to send. You have the ability to either send the large files with the link to somebody by email so they can click on it and download it, or you could have the ability to display that link to yourself and then you email that off to perhaps a group of people.

They also have a subscription version where you can send up to 20GB at once and also store files, even password protect them and set when they expire. Thsi is a great website that you should check out if you need to send large files.”

“It is important to have a privacy policy on your website due to Google ranking algorithm changes, GDPR, and to protect yourself.

Do you have a website? Do you have a privacy policy? Does it really matter? Google’s making this a part of the search engine ranking algorithm. And it’s becoming very important just to protect yourself. Think of the European Union GDPR that was pushed out last year.

Privacy Policy need Search Rank

You can go to the website https://www.freeprivacypolicy.com/, and it will create one for free, just like the name implies. It covers off things like GDPR, California Online Privacy Protection Act, the General Data Protection Regulation, Google AdWords requirements to have a privacy policy, personal identifiable information, the Federal Trade Commission, and fair information practices.

It has all these check-boxes that you go through when you generate your free privacy policy, spits it out, and it looks great. You can insert this into your website, and you’ve got yourself an instant privacy policy to help ensure that you’re protected, and also that you’re better ranked when it comes to Google.”
