Snapseed, Aviary and PiscArt are all
the three free photo editors I have personally picked and gathered can resize
and enhance your photographs by adding filters such as; grunge and vintage
filters. You can transform or invert
your pictures, add text, stickers, borders, frames, specific themes on your
photos; and also you can create collages of your favorite’s images as well. By
pressing one of these photo editors’ menu buttons, It'll definitely do wonders
on your images.
So to begin with, go click on your
Applications store icon, Apps/Store, (if applicable, on your android device),
type and search the name; when you get to find it, install the application.
With Snapseed you can add filters, transform, flip, crop and so on. Just makes
sure that during the saving process, click on saves a copy of the photo that's
been edited to prevent altering the original image. The edited image will be
saved in its own folder, which is Snapseed Album. PiscArt will enable you to
edit your pictures such as create collages, add filters and so on, the
application creates its own folder as well and all of the edited photographs
you created will be stored in that folder.
Just a reminder that with PiscArt,
there are certain features that aren't free to use to create your projects,
which means you need to purchase them. My top number three is Aviary which will
not create its own album; it will edit your images and save it automatically on
the same folder/gallery for your pictures. With its saving process; it won’t
alter your original picture, it will just save the edited copy. The following
random photos are my personal photographs; that I edited using the top three
free photo editor’s applications out there, (which I installed on my mobile
My vivid memories of playing happily
the part of an Angel during my First Grade: Class Christmas Party comes to mind
every holiday season.
I still remember wearing an immaculately white lovely dress with a pair of white Wings which were
made out of Cardboard and shredded Solid white crepe paper. My teachers adorned
me with those gigantic angel wings and that I really needed someone to hold and
helped me walk with it due to my tiny size. lol. It was indeed a memorable and beautiful childhood memory of
mine, during my First grade class celebration of the holiday seasons in the Philippines.
Just edited my own photograph where I sat on a wooded
bench and was waiting for the Calgary transit bus in SW of Calgary during the
spring of April 23, 2015, taken by my aunt. I have added wings –stickers and
effects as well, which is artistic; and selected Contours.
This is the Calgary tower, it’s where you can get aerial
views and take some photographs of the downtown city of Calgary. The tower also houses a fine dining and some retail shops. I have taken this photograph of the Calgary

My siblings' family went fishing one time by the lake
outside Alberta, during the summer of 2013. It was warm and sunny during that
day, and the children enjoyed fishing as well. Fishing is one fun family activity
to be on your list, during the warmer season in Canada.
I have taken this photo during the summer of 2017; this
building is the Alberta Court of Appeal and is now one of the vintage
architecture design in downtown Calgary. The city uses the Calgary Courts Centre which
is across this building.
Canada’s summer is everybody’s favorites, because the
city’s atmospheres' will be very colorful with the sidewalks that is always aligned with gigantic pots of
beautiful flowers, as well as there are many summer festivals being celebrated in the city. (This picture was taken during the summer of 2017)
It's the Rockies behind the series of the Lake of
Vermillion by Banff National Park of Canada in the summer of 2015; this is
taken during my tour guiding job. The couple who were canoeing have seen me
taking photographs by the shore; so then they came to rest by the side of the
lake and that have given me the chance to take a shot of their canoe.

I stumbled on these rabbits one summer night by our
building's entrance during one summer night of 2016. I noticed that there’s an
abundant population of wild animals in Canada, from time to time I see baby
deer’s and rabbits in our neighborhood whatever the season is ; whether Spring,
Summer, Fall and Winter.
This is the Bow River by the Shouldice Park in NW of
Calgary, during the winter of December 25, 2016. The Park is always open all
throughout the seasons. You can jog, take a walk with your pet, play sports,
also barbecue and have a picnic with family and friends as well.

There Are Too Many Reasons On Not Working Toshiba Laptop
June 27, 2015
For not working Toshiba Laptop Touch pad device with
Windows OS: Turn off your computer by holding your power on/off button for 15
seconds, until the computer power light goes off. Unplug the Adapter Cord and
also take out the battery. Return the battery, and plug the Adapter Cord back,

in case of a power outage, [shock]). FYI! I do not plug the computer A/C
directly to an electric outlet.
Press and hold down FN +F9 at the same time together

you go point to Start Menu then select Control Panel, click on Hardware and
Sound tab, then onto Devices and Printers click on Mouse, then modify the
settings of your touch pad device.

Alright, so by the time you get into the settings for your
mouse touch pad, just make sure that you [Unchecked the box for disable
internal mouse when external device is attached, then press Okay for new
settings to apply]. This is very important.
And the last option for you I hope is that; you can make
it work your Touch pad by updating your touch pad driver. Go to official site of Toshiba's’ support
site. Just type (www.toshiba.com) and look for support page, Follow the
prompts, such as: input computer laptop model number and the rest will follow.
Toshiba will scan your computer for drivers update. It will recommend you to

This could be also a virus attack. Try to install a good
virus guard, there are lots of free antivirus programs out there, (i.e.AVG,
Avast, and so on), and scan the whole computer. The anti -virus will quarantine
or remove the virus. Restart after scanning. However, if you want a free anti-
virus protection for your computer I would recommend you the following
antivirus software’s you can download
and install; such as: Avast Antivirus or AVG. Take your pick and just type on
your browser www.avast.com or www.avg.com to download any of the two antivirus
programs to protect your PC from unwanted threat, such as viruses and most
unwanted software you might find online.
However, my pick is Avast, it’s because it’s one of the
best Anti-Virus software’s out there and has one of the highest virus detection
rates of any software, and the best part is definitely free!
Well, if this doesn’t work, I recommend you go to an
authorized service center for your comp. It must be the touch-pad is already
To sum it up, an existing e-mail is imperative for
everyday activities nowadays, it's just because, In general, a social media
required an e-mail of yours, to set up an account: (example: Google
Plus my favorite), hehe
Today's age of computers, mostly all companies that offer
free software's online may require an e-mail, (i.e. if you want to download a
free game, a free photo editor application to enhance your personal pictures,
etc.), you perhaps need to provide an e-mail as a requirement, more so that you
as a user can be provided with an update later on.
To sign up for the first time, type google mail on an
Internet browser then click on create a new account, (a phone number is
required to verify your account if you have no any other existing e-mail to
provide, Simply enter all mandatory fields, (e.g. First Name, Last Name,
Gender, etc), choose a secure password; don't forget to jot down all the
information's you provided for a back-up document in the future, then after
filling up the form, you must click on "agree" to the company's
conditions to set up a new e-mail account for you.
Some free web mail providers out there also are MAIL.COM,
Yahoo, Hotmail, and so on. You can chose though whoever you want, my apologies.
Apparently, an e-mail message uses the same format as a
standard memo; it includes, From, Date, To, and Subject lines, typically
followed by the content of the message. To... line: indicates who the recipient
of the message is, (it includes CC:, & BCC); Subject... line: is for the topic of your message, usually in
bold capital letters; (I.E. BIRTHDAY
PARTY OF MY BABY), From... line: your web mail supplies your name or e-mail,
& Date... line: (depends on what device you use), the computer or your
phone automatically supplies the actual date you send the message.
Remember that when you're sending a message, there are
three types of e-mail “recipients”, namely: Primary-(TO), is the first
individual to whom you intend to send the message; Secondary- (CC), are the
interested parties who want to receive a copy of the message and
Tertiary-(BCC), Blind Carbon Copy-(bcc) bcc'ng someone is very important, if
you want to send someone a message but that someone prefer (to be bcc'd),
meaning to hide such an individual's certain e-mail address from everybody receiving the same message.
You will find your Inbox folder which stores all your
messages you received from all your contacts. Outbox are composed messages that
perhaps aren’t successfully sent to your contacts due to failed delivery
usually because of mistypes or invalid e-mail addresses. While your Sent Items folder accommodates all
the messages you successfully sent, meanwhile Drafts folder stores all those
messages you created but haven’t finished and sent it yet, unless you’ll delete them, otherwise they
will be there waiting for you to edit and send to your recipients. Deleted
items folder is similar to a computer’s Recycle Bin, it will store all your
deleted items until you’ll restore or delete them permanently. Contacts folder
is being created by the E-mail holder and that is no other than you; you can do
this option, by doing; Go>Contacts option on the E-mail’s Menu Bar then
select “Add new contact by filling up the form and then click on Save”.
In general to send an E-mail, first thing to do is compose
the message so click on Compose or New button, and then afterwards click on
Send button. You perhaps can attach files by clicking Attach File/Insert File
button then follow prompts, whether the files are inside your
Computer/Download/ folders (it depends where you stored your files though).
If only MS Office suite program isn't included on your
Operating System (i.e. Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, Access), Go to Start Menu
Button, Point to All Programs, select Accessories>click on WordPad or
Notepad, they are included with you computer-Win 7, 8, 8.1 OS, etc. Otherwise,
you can use the MS Word.
In this tutorial, you will learn how to manage your files.
By the way, what is a File? A File is a collection of data, which has a name
and is stored on a computer’s drive or in an external drive. After creating a
File, you can print it, open it, edit its contents, and or save it again
usually using the same program you used to create it. To accomplish any given
task that involves texts, you must type texts where texts are required though.
When you start a document program, such as the WordPad, a
blank wide area will appear below the menu bar, toolbars and ruler. That area
is called the document window. By the upper left side of the document window,
the flashing vertical bar is called the Insertion Point. The insertion Point
shows your typing position on the screen, and it moves as you type and usually
blinks when you pause you’re typing.
Word Pad Window
The Insertion Point indicates where the characters you
type will appear. As you type sentences of texts in the specified document
window, no need to press the Enter Key on your Keyboard when you reach the right
margin of the page. Most Windows document programs contain a feature called
Word Wrap, which automatically continues your texts on the next line.
Therefore, you can press the Enter key only when you have completed a
paragraph. While the mouse pointer moves
freely around on the screen as you move the mouse and when the mouse pointer is
positioned in a text area, it looks like an I-Beam.
If ever you make a typing error, just position the Mouse’
I Beam-Pointer to select the texts by highlighting all the texts you want to
delete and then press the Enter key on the Keyboard. When you move the Mouse’
I- Beam pointer to a position on the screen where texts has been typed, and you
click the mouse, the Insertion Point moves to that location. Use the Insertion
Point, to erase the typed wrong texts by moving the I-Beam Pointer to the
correct position over the wrong -typed texts and then click. The Insertion
Point moves to where you clicked then use the Backspace key.
In general, whatever project you are working on your
computer and or when you type texts on a document program, it is being held
temporarily in the computer’s temporary memory called RAM, (RANDOM ACCESS
MEMORY), and is being erased when you turn off or restart the computer. For
permanent storage, you must save your work on your computer's hard drive, (c:
drive; if applicable), and or on a removable disk as frequently, as
possible. A removable USB drive is an
example of an external hard drive to store your project, otherwise your work
will be gone for good and only a professional retriever can retrieve your work.
If you will use a new disk to store your files, only
format the disk when it’s unformatted and or its old and you wanted to reuse
it. To completely erase and reuse an old
disk, you can format the disk using the Quick Format command.
Format Option Command
Go>Start Menu>Point to select Windows File
Explorer>Right click on the specified USB or Floppy disk and point to
select Format>Put a check mark on Quick format box>then Press the
Format options-Creating an MS DOS startup disk
If you will save your document for the first time, Go File
Menu tab>Point to select Save option, a pop up Save As dialogue box
appears, it gives an option where you want to save your file (if applicable: on
the hard disk or the computer's Documents folder), Otherwise use an external
disk to store your file, by selecting the correct destination folder on the
Left Pane-Explorer bar options, of the Save As dialogue box window.
file by typing a name that you can easily remember then click Save. The file is
automatically saved in that application you are using. At the bottom of the dialogue box, you will
find out the document you're saving in its' own file type, (.RTF, etc.).
You could delete files (only you created) which you no
longer need, so that your folders and disks don't get cluttered. Use
Windows Explorer File window to manage your files by using the Delete command
on the file's shortcut menu options.
Right click on a given file, click on Delete
option>Select permanently delete the file by pressing Okay button.
However, be careful when deleting a folder, examine it contents first, and only
delete the whole folder if you no longer need the contents. All the deleted
files from your computers C: Drive, goes inside the Recycle Bin.
The Recycle Bin is an area on your hard drive that holds
deleted files, until you emptied the Recycle Bin, and then they're removed
permanently, and can't be recoverable anymore.
(If applicable), you'll find the
Recycle Bin on your desktop. However, in public places though, such as the
public library, no need to delete such an item that you downloaded on the
computer's hard drive from the Internet, the operating system's already been
programmed to delete such items.
However when you delete files and or folders from an external drive
such as: USB and Floppy disk, they can't be recovered anymore; such deleted
items will not go to Recycle Bin at all, once you deleted them, they're gone for good, meaning, they're permanently
Restore/ Delete Command
To retrieve such deleted files or folders of yours inside the Recycle
Bin, use the Restore Command on the Recycle Bin’s Restore option to return the
deleted files and or folders from the C:Drive; You can return them back to
their original location by Double clicking to open the Recycle Bin>right
click on the item inside the bin and point to select Restore command option.
Copy and Paste technique: If you have an extra external disk, you can
make a copy of your data from your original disk now. Make sure you copy the
data stored on your original disk regularly so that as you work on your
original disk the data on your copy disk stays updated. To copy a file is just
an act of duplication, and placing the file to another location of your choice,
but the original file isn’t affected.
However the Cutting technique is different, it’s actually removal of
the data from its original location and it’s being transferred to its new
location. To do this method; on the
pop-up dialogue box menu point to select Cut option on the files you selected
and highlighted and then go to a new destination folder of your choice, from
there; double click and select paste
command on the pop-up menu dialogue box to completely remove the files from its
current location, and places the files to its new location.
Copy and Paste Technique
To prevent losing all the data stored on your external disk, you
should always have a copy of your disk for later purposes. To do this
technique, Make sure to insert your original USB or floppy disk and a blank
disk to the computer, and then open up Windows File Explorer.
Double click on the original disk to open it. Click on the first file
to select it (inside the original disk) and then press Shift key on the
keyboard while clicking on the last file to highlight it then release the shift
button, notice how all the files are selected and highlighted. Right click on
top of the highlighted files and point to select Copy option on the menu of
pop-up dialogue box. Open up and click inside the blank disk and then right
click and select Paste option on the menu of the pop-up dialogue box.
Everything will be copied from the original to the new disk for Backup
documents in the future.
