Upload to SmugMug Easier with SnugUp

I recently worked on a project where I needed to upload many folders of images to SmugMug. Rather than manually create each folder and wait for the several hundred imaged to upload I tried out SnugUp. It is extremely easy to use and will sync any folder you target to the SmugMug folder you specify. I was able to easily upload the several thousand images in the proper folders in one shot. Great tool.

Great Chrome Extension – The Great Suspender

Here is a cool extension for Chrome. It will essentially “pause” tabs that you arenot using. You can manually freeze a tab or set a time period that will make unused tabs auto freeze to take up less memory and resources for tabs you are not using.

Unload, park, suspend tabs to reduce memory footprint of chrome.

How To Easily Add Plain-Text Pasting to Windows

I just read a great tip that will speed up a TON of time for me. I often have to “clean” text by pasting it into notepad to remove all formatting before pasting into a WYSIWYG web editor. After running this tiny .exe I can do a “clean paste” by pressing “Windows key + V”. Easy!
