Citrify - Edit your photos a la AIR

Yesterday I was checking my friend Duane "Chaos" Nickull's page called Technoracle(a.k.a "Duane's World") and I found out that he was giving away 50 Free Citrify Licences of course...I took my chances and was gladly choose -:) I'm a Citrify user right now -;)

But...what's Citrify? It's an Adobe AIR based application used to edit your photos in a fun and easy way.

Choose a picture...

You can adjust Brightness, Contrast, Hue, Saturation, Resize, Rotate and Sharpen.

You can use some Touchup with Airbrush, Blemish, Glare, Redeye, Toothbrush and Wrinkle.

Of course...don't forget about the Effects, you can use Halftone, Flashback, Watercolor, Hulkify, Obamify, Sepia, Black & White and Pencil sketch.

Playing along with effects and adjustments, you can make some weird looking pics like this one -:)

I really recommend this piece of software...easy to use, build on Adobe AIR...what else can you ask for?



ChessJam - Online chess

I must admit that I'm really bad at Chess...but it doesn't mean I don't like it -;)
So, when I was browsing my RSS Reader, I found ChessJam.

ChessJam is a pretty neat application build on Adobe Flex and ColdFusion running on Adobe AIR.

But you might be asking...what's the big buzz about a Chess game? Easy...you can play against bots or against people from all around the world...chat included...to me...that's awesome -:)

We have to create an account and then log-in.

We can choose to play a single game or chat and challenge other players....

We can choose varios types of games (Depending on the game time play) or enter a Tournament.

We have plenty of room to choose if the want to play against a bot or another human being.

We can choose between a nice 3D look...

or a nice 2D classic view...

When you sign up...you must give out your Country of residence...so the system could run some nice statistics.

So...why don't you give this game a chance? Play it...enjoy it and pass it along -;)
