Take screenshots, convert graphics and more with this week’s picks.
Switch to a less distracting background while taking screenshots with this free gem. This app hides your desktop picture and clutter and can even hide the menu bar and dock.
With Pictu, your favorite picture is a menu item away. Pictu pops up a picture of your choice on click, and lives in the menu bar. And that’s all it does. Don’t you love programmer restraint?
Rather than firing up Photoshop for simple image conversions, try this app. It converts between many formats and can resize and compress (jpgs).
Is the picture you’re looking for on another system? Get VNC. If you haven’t used VNC already, this is a good time to try it. Share your Mac over a network, and view and control another Mac/PC.
Don’t misinterpret the name on this one. WinSwitch makes fast user switching faster. WinSwitch gives you quick access to other users’ accounts through a menu bar item. You can even tweak settings with the accompanying preference pane.
Get the picture? Have fun.
