IMPHOTO: Free Photoshop alternative Photo and Image Editor software for Windows 10

GIMP is one of the best free open-source photo & image editing software. But some users believed that GIMP was a few features away from being a complete solution to photo editing needs, and so someone created a modified version of GIMP with improved features and options, and they call it GIMPHOTO. Gimphoto comes with GIMP loaded with useful plugins and resources. The UI is tweaked a bit here and there.

GIMPHOTO for Windows 10

GIMPHOTO comes packed with Gimp plugins that have been developed by other developers across the globe. These plugins can help you extend features and add more options while editing an image. Let us take a look at some of the outstanding feature of this free Photoshop alternative software.

GIMPHOTO for Windows 10

UI

Gimphoto makes use of Clearlooks GTK engine to render the UI. The interface is almost the same, but you may notice changes in the appearance of controls. They are more smooth and flat because of the Clearlooks engine. Gimphoto also includes a tool that lets you use any other GTK theme and customize the UI more easily.

Menu Convention

A few changes to the menu structure have been made. Although, the naming convention remains the same so that you can still follow GIMP tutorials as it is they were before. The right click menu has also been modified to add more tools so that they are easily accessible.

Additional Plugins

This section covers the additional plugins that come preinstalled with Gimphoto.

Save for Web

This plugin lets you save images in webioptimized quality. Since disk space is an expensive resource these days, you can create images that are beautiful to look and are small in size. This option has been added to the ‘File’ menu.

David’s Batch Processing

This plugin exactly does what it says. You can easily manipulate images in batch mode without learning any new scripting language. You can perform operations like rotate, resize, color, blur sharpen, crop and even rename. This is a pretty nifty plugin and can help you a lot if you use batch operations.

Separate+

This plugin adds some really useful color management features to the GIMP. Gimphoto uses this plugin for RGB to CMYK conversion. This feature is mostly required by professionals and needs in-depth knowledge of digital imaging. You can find this plugin under ‘Image’ -> ‘Mode’.

LayerEffects

This script lets you add some effects to the separate layers of the image. You can add effects like border, gradient, glow, and shadow.

Other than these plugins, a few other additions have been made. You will find a new and improved set of brushes awaiting you. A new and modified brush set has replaced the default one, and the developer has stated to improve it further and add more brushes to it.

The default set of gradients have been modified, and almost 30 new gradients have been added to create button, symbol or graphics for Web 2.0 design style.

So that was pretty much that has been changed to make this tool more useful. All in all, Gimphoto is a complete photo editor that can handle most of your image editing needs.

 

Moreover, Gimphoto updates come along with GIMP updates. So the latest version of Gimphoto is now running upon GIMP 2.4 stable version while GIMP has been updated to 2.8 in the meantime and we expect a new Gimphoto update with all the new GIMP feature like single window mode, etc. With this tool, you get all the GIMP functionality with more features.

Gimphoto is an outstanding feature-rich image editing software that does what it says. It can serve as a PhotoShop alternative software for those who cannot afford PhotoShop. The UI is very easy to understand, the image is in the center and the toolbox and others sub-windows are aligned around it. You can easily perform basic and complex tasks on Gimphoto. Click here to download Gimphoto. The software is Open-Source, and the source code is available for further modifications.

Frozen Mountain Software Announces Plugin-Free Support for WebRTC in iOS 11 and Safari 11

Image result for Frozen Mountain Software Announces Plugin-Free Support for WebRTC in iOS 11 and Safari 11]

IceLink now provides plugin-free WebRTC support in iOS 11 and Safari with the same IceLink API.

“Apple’s recent announcement at WWDC is gladly welcomed by our team,” states Anton Venema, CTO of Frozen Mountain Software. “Although IceLink has always historically supported native iOS WebRTC application development and Safari usage via our plugin, today we are happy to announce that IceLink now also supports WebRTC in Safari 11 without plugins.”

With the WebRTC standard now supported by all the mainstream browsers, IceLink users are assured that their website visitors will have an even more seamless user experience when using Safari. Prior to this announcement, visitors would be prompted to install the Safari plugin during their first visit. Now this step will no longer be necessary.

From a developer’s perspective, this announcement highlights the advantages of leveraging IceLink’s common cross-platform API that abstracts each browser’s unique WebRTC implementation. Developers familiar with IceLink will find the same powerful API in v3.0.13 as they have used in the past, and will require no code changes to take advantage of Apple’s new WebRTC support.

As Apple announces more details and rolls out support for more WebRTC functions, development teams using IceLink are benefitting from the drastically reduced development time and effort needed to react to each of these changes.

To learn more about Real Time Communications solutions using IceLink, and the soon to be released LiveSwitch, visit frozenmountain.com.

Started in 2008 and having grown to over 300 customers in 47 countries worldwide, Frozen Mountain Software provides cross-platform, licensed Internet Based Real-Time Communication (iRTC) SDKs, such as the multi-award winning IceLink, and services that allow organizations to incorporate WebRTC audio/video streaming, selective forwarding, audio/video mixing, screen sharing, call signaling, telephony, broadcasting, text chat, shared whiteboards, browser synchronization and internet pub/sub messaging into their applications.

SITE ANALYZER SOFTWARE

The HTML analyzer tool analyses on-line and local HTML web pages. It allows you to dissect html text in the same way that a search engine would do it. Site analyzer may be used in several ways:

· Analysis of your own site text, while building and optimizing the site, by calculating keyword density and keyword weight.
· Detailed analyses of your competitors’ sites to obtain optimal keywords and keyphrases.
· To ensure that your web pages are well designed and the HTML code is correctly formed.

The first report provided by the HTML analyzer contains detailed information on keywords, such as keyword weight and keyword density. The following statistics are obtained for each keyword:

html analyzer report Total number of occurrences – this total is a count of all word occurrences in the text, including visible text as well as invisible and administrative tags (TITLE, ALT, meta-tags, etc.).
Number of presences in visible text – how many times a word occurs in text that is visible to site visitors.
TITLE tags – shows the keywords in the page header and title tags. Search engines place special importance on the keywords included in these tags.

Stylistic tags – indicates if a keyword is printed in bold type or italics.
Link text – shows if this keyword is associated with links to other pages.
Alt tags – shows which words are present in image alternative tags.
Keywords and Description Meta-tags – shows if a word is present in search engine meta-tags. The Meta Keyword Tag allowed webmasters to set keywords of the current page for search engines. The Meta Description Tag allows you to set the desired description of the current page. Meta tags are not fully used by search engines nowadays and often ignored, but their continued use is advisable when creating a new website.
HTML report

As well as the parameters described above, keyword weight and keyword density are shown for each keyword.

Keyword density is a measure of textual keyword frequency. For example if the text contains 100 assorted words and the given keyword occurs 5 times then its density is 5%. The density of keywords is an important parameter to be taken into account when optimizing your site. A low density will cause the search engine to consider the page irrelevant for a query on that keyword. An extremely high keyword density will cause the search engine to switch on a search spam-filter and as a result, the page will be excluded from search results. According to various sources, the optimum keyword density is between 3% and 7%.

Keyword weight – is a figure that evaluates the significance of a given keyword in a web page.

Here are some of factors taken into account by the search engines when evaluating the keyword weight:

      – The total number of occurrences of the given keyword,

 

      – The text attribute tags. For example, title, bold type and so on.

 

      – The distance from the beginning of the text.

 
keyword density      The next Site analyzer report allows you to analyze keyphrases of a website. This report is useful when analyzing competitors’ projects because it allows you to accurately determine the search engine keyphrases that your competitors are aiming at. This report is similar to the previous one but shows information on key phrases. In addition, detailed parameters of the words in each phrase are displayed.
HTML report

HTML analyzer also provides reports “in reverse.” Instead of choosing a page for analysis and listing keywords (or phrases), you can select a keyword (or phrase) and view analyses of it in all the pages of interest to you.

Two more HTML analyzer reports are designed to give an overall site analysis:

keyword weight     A summary of keyword weight for all site pages. HTML report

site analysis report     An estimate the total number of words and number of visible words in each page and their size, in kilobytes.
HTML report

With HTML analyzer:

      You

analyze

      and then

optimize

      your website keywords and phrases to achieve best possible search engine positions.

 

      You

analyze

      your

competitor’s

    websites to determine the search engine keyphrases that they are using. They may be useable in your website.

SITEMAP SOFTWARE

The term “sitemap” was derived from “website” and “map”; it is a map of your website. Some sitemaps are designed to be read by humans and are often written using HTML code. Other sitemaps are designed to be read by search engines and are often written using XML code. Our sitemap software can generate both types of sitemap.

In a sitemap links to all sections/pages of the website resource are listed. Initially sitemaps were used to simplify navigation for website resources that have many internal sections. If the visitor couldn’t find the necessary section using the navigation menu, he or she could visit the sitemap page and access all website sections from the sitemap with a single mouse click. Although human readable sitemaps can be manually constructed it is much easier to use sitemap software to automatically generate them.

As search engines appeared and developed, sitemaps began solving another problem – to simplify the indexing task for search engines. It is well known that internal website pages nested several levels down from the main index page are indexed less often by search robots. With a sitemap you can make all internal site pages available for robot crawls in only two steps. The first step is from the main page to the sitemap and the second step is from the sitemap to any of the internal pages. That is why sitemaps appear on resources where human visitors don’t have navigation problems. They are provided for the use of search engine robots and are best generated using sitemap software.

The next step in the evolution of the sitemap was made by Google. This company started supporting sitemaps in XML format. An XML sitemap contains information about all pages of the resource – page address, average update frequency, the date when it was last modified as well as the relative importance of each page. The XML sitemap format is unreadable for humans, but highly efficient for search engine robots.

HTML sitemap software

An HTML sitemap, (it can also be called a traditional map), is a conventional web page where links to all sections of your website are gathered. Our HTML sitemap software scans the site and collects complete information about its structure. Using an intuitive built-in editor, you can create both horizontal and vertical sitemaps and also choose different color schemes to make the sitemap match the design of the rest of your website.

Two HTML sitemap examples generated by our sitemap software are shown here – horizontal and verticalmaps of our own website www.seoadministrator.com.

Xml sitemap for Google and other search engines

XML format is unreadable by humans but our XML sitemap software includes a built in editor in which all information is presented as easy to understand tables. This makes manual editing of an XML sitemap quite easy. After editing is complete, the sitemap software will generate an xml file, upload it to your server and then, using special functions (the so-called API), it will inform Google that a new version of your sitemap is available.
