FotoJet, an AWESOMELY Simple (& Free) Web-Based Photo Editing Suite

Image result for fotojet logo

There exist many photo editing programs, both online-based and offline-based.  In a sea of options, I wanted to see what made PearlMountain Technology Company’s FotoJet a practical online photo editing program. It must be said that it certainly helps to have had some experience with other photo editing products before jumping into any program of that type. Fortunately for newcomers, that won’t apply for FotoJet, as it lets you edit photos, create collages, make photo cards, posters and practically anything else with the greatest of ease, which — in my mind — makes it one of the best free online photo editors/collage maker available today.

Here in the good ‘ol US-of-A (or ANYWHERE that’s NOT Japan), it’s pretty difficult for pinball machines to compete with the advanced visuals of computer and home gaming consoles. It’s probably safe to say that VR isn’t helping things either, but what MIGHT help is the addition of an interactive element that would let players design their own tables. Enter artists Jérémie Cortial and Roman Miletitch, who’ve found an interesting method to make pinball great (and relevant) again.

“It’s a MEW Day; Yes It Is!!!”

Mostly because it involves cats. Plus, this IS the internet, and the internet just LOVES cats for some reason.  Anyway, the gang over at Muscle Temple released an interesting group of wrestling fanart, as artist Becky Dreistadt (of Capture Creatures, Star vs The Forces of Evil, Bee & Puppycat) combined two of the things the internet ove the most: pro wrestling and cats. I must admit, they are A-DOR-ABLE!!!

Watch The New Day, Ric Flair, And More Get The Sega Genesis Treatment In This WWE 2K16 Parody Video

I love that I can still pop WWF No Mercy in my Nintendo 64 and enjoy that little bit of nostalgic wrestling video games that make me feel like a kid again. Truthfully, there’s’ probably NO other feeling like it! However, something new and original could probably help re-create that feeling of childhood nostalgia, especially if it’s executed properly; kind of like this… Continue reading Watch The New Day, Ric Flair, And More Get The Sega Genesis Treatment In This WWE 2K16 Parody Video
