Fotoshop

Fotoshop is a software created to edit photographs in any imaginable way, fotoshop was developed a while ago by adobe an has been growing ever since, it has a huge active community and constant updates. It features many tools that allow the user to make changes from just a single pixel to the whole global image.

Fotoshop has increased in complexity as well and has become a tool for an above average user, it requieres some expertise, maybe a introduction course, some video tutorials online, take a class and all the way to the designers with a bachellor’s degree. Fotoshop has far exceded it’s competence in widespread use.

Some other photo edition software exist in the world, some even more professional or targeted to a more specific niche, but none of them is as famous as fotoshop.

As it’s to be expected, fotoshop is not free, you need to purchase a one time license and it’s updates. Some online versions have appeared like fotoshop online which allows you to do some similar things, like taking things (parts, objects) from an image and placing them into another image. But it’s interface isn’t identical to fotoshop, only the concept. Some other editors more similar to the original have appeared as well like pixlr, so depending on how familiarized you are with the software you may want to choose between one of those.

Photo threshold effect

One of the not so common effects you can apply to your photos is the threshold effect. This effect works the following way:

In the photo threshold effect all the pixels with color values lower than a defined threshold (which you define) will be changed to another defined color (which you define as well) creating an interesting effect. Commonly all the pixels that satisfy this condition usually are gather in the same place or belong to the same region, even this region is not closed, this way what will happen is that some of the homogeneous regions in the image will be switched to the color of your selection.

There’s also a black threshold effect and white threshold effect, which basically do a similar thing as described above, but the new pixels are mapped to black or white depending on the effect.

For example the next photo was thresholded (filtered) with a red filter

VPN4All review

Privacy is a major concern nowadays, specially for people that use internet frequently. Internet can be used for different purposes that range from work or sturdy to personal communication and entertainment but no matter what you do online, you should pay special attention to the security of your connection. Everyday we send and receive private data through internet (which is a public network), so it is important to be aware that this data can be accessed by others including your ISP, companies, hackers and even the government. In other words, our privacy is not safe online unless we take the necessary precautions to ensure that our online activities cannot be monitored. Whether you want to protect confidential information from work, download and access content without restrictions or enjoy internet with confidence even when you connect using a public Wi-Fi, you can trust in a VPN service. Established in 2009, Dutch company VPN4All is one of the providers that offers all the advantages of a VPN, including a no logging policy which mean that they do not keep track of your activity online. Even though the company does not own or control their own network of servers (this is administered and controlled by WebBrodcasting Ltd, a company based in Seychelles). VPN4All manages billing and customer support from the Netherlands and they guarantee to provide a reliable and fast service. We tried out VPN4All to see how their service performs in the main aspects of a VPN.

Servers Location
When you subscribe to the VPN service that VPN4All offers, you can enjoy access to over 200 servers located in 32 countries (You can expect this number to increase as they work to expand their network) in Africa (Seychelles), Asia (Japan, Hong Kong, Singapore), Europe (Netherlands, Poland, Spain, Latvia, United Kingdom, Germany, Czech Republic, Ireland, Finland to name a few) as well as United States and Canada. The lack of servers in Australia or New Zealand can be seen as a downside but since they are constantly updating their list of servers, this may change very soon.

Supported OS, Protocols and Devices
At the moment they do not support Linux (even though they do provide helpful information on how to set their client up through OpenVPN) but their VPN service works with the two most popular Operating Systems: Windows (XP and higher versions) and Mac (from 10.5 onwards). In regards to protocols, they mainly offer OpenVPN and throughout their website they highlight the security of this protocol for desktop computers compared to options such as PPTP. They only offer PPTP and IPsec/L2TP for mobile devices. VPN4All’s client is compatible with iPhones, iPads, androids, windows smartphones and of course, desktops and laptops.

Plans
They offer three plans depending on your needs and devices. If you mainly connect to internet from your mobile phone or tablet, you should go for the VPN4All Mobile plan. The bandwidth limit for this plan is 5GB and you can only use 100 of the over 200 IPs that they have. Still, it is the best option for mobile users. The price per month for this plan is €5.95 (Or $8). For three months you pay €15 (approx. $20), Six months cost €28 ($38 approx.) and the annual subscription cost €49 (nearly $66). If you use internet from a desktop computer or Mac and you are mainly interested in online browsing, you can get the VPN4ALL-50 GB, which as the name indicates, offers 50 GB bandwidth limit. The price per month is €9.95 (or $13.5), €25 (Almost $34) for 3 months, €48 (About $65) for 6 months and €84 ( $113 approx.) for a yearly subscription. For those that need unlimited bandwidth and that use internet to download and stream online content, the bets option is the VPN4All Unlim. For this plan, you pay €16.95 ($13) per month, €43 ($58) for 3 months, €81 ($109) for six months and €142 ($191 approx.) for annual subscription. VPN4All offers a 30 day money back guarantee on all plans and you also have the option of getting additional protection against malware, viruses and phishing for an extra cost of €2.49 ($3.35 USD).

Customer Support
The website has an extensive knowledge base in which you are very likely to find the solution to your query. If you need to contact their support team, you can do it by email based ticket support system. For faster response, you need to select the relevant department to address your issue to (e.g. Billing or Technical support) and they also state that they can be contacted via live chat. However, we were not able to contact them, not even the window or a message stating that they are offline. Perhaps, they are not available at this time, even though the website still list this option. Still, when we contacted them via email, they were effective and fast to respond.

Conclusion
VPN4All is easy to use and their anti-malware features are a good option to enhance the security of your connection. However, you can get a more complete service for the same price (or even less) and the fact that their compatibility options are restricted can also be an issue. The fact that their VPN service is operated from Seychelles allows them to have a no logging policy but they still have to improve many things in order to become a top VPN provider.
VPN4All offers a good, easy to use service that offers additional security options that can be very appealing, specially for those with higher technical requirements. However, their prices are not the most convenient and they do not offer as many compatibility options in terms of OS (no Linux support) or protocols. Their Live chat support does not seem to be available, it seems like they need to work on making their website more accurate and easy to navigate.

GoTrusted VPN review

Protecting your identity online should be a priority. Every time we connect to internet, we are exposed to attacks from online fraudsters that want to get hold on your private information for their own benefit. Using a VPN keeps your data protected and offers many other benefits such as allowing you to view content from any website, regardless of geo location restrictions. GoTrusted is a leading VPN provider that puts a high emphasis in online security and privacy.

Servers location
While GoTrusted is one of the most solid companies in the VPN industry and they have invested a lot in the marketing of their services (being the first VPN service with their own TV commercial), they also have their downside and one of the main ones is the limited amount of servers and countries they feature. Still, they offer a good selection and with their service you can connect to internet using IPs from countries like Ireland, Japan, United States, United Kingdom, France and Singapore.
Supported OS and Devices
While GoTRusted is compatible with all the popular platforms, some people (particularly those that want more advanced/technical systems) may find the options limited. However, most users will find their options suitable as they are compatible with  Windows and Mac OS X. Their service can be used with iPhone, iPod Touch and Android devices.
Protocols
In terms of protocols, they offer a good range of alternatives for different users. The protocols supported by GoTrusted include PPTP, L2TP/IPsec and OpenVPN, which is the most secure options when you are using your Desktop Computer and Mac or Linux systems. PPTP and L2TP are more compatible with mobile devices like iPads, iPhones and Androids.
Plans

After the free trial, you can subscribe for as little as $5.99 USD per month and enjoy all the features such as unlimited bandwidth and speed, with the option of cancelling at any time you want. They also offer solutions for big and small companies.
Customer Support

You can also contact them using their ticket support system.
Conclusion
There are many good aspects about GoTrusted such as their strong technical support, easy to use service, their comprehensive website that provides a great deal of information and the convenience of their prices. However,  their limited compatibility and narrow selection of countries from where you can connect to internet make GoTrusted a weaker option when compared to other providers.  If you are looking for a highly advanced VPN service that suits all your technical needs, GoTrusted may not be the best option but if you want a standard service that is convenient for most devices and that is easy to use, you may want to give them a try.

Invisible browsing VPN review

The importance of surfing internet securely cannot be highlighted enough. Every user has to be aware of the fact that their identity can be traced by anyone and that it is important to take steps to enhance their security online, in order to keep their identity protected. Virtual Private Networks are the most convenient way to ensure that your privacy remains safe while you are connected to internet. When you use a VPN, your true IP and location cannot be traced and your information will not be at risk. One of the most affordable VPN providers in the market is ibVPN or Invisible Browsing VPN. The company has a strong background in internet services with a focus in developing privacy tools. Thanks to this experience they are able to get into the world of VPN and are offering their services for a low cost. In order to confirm if their affordable price does not affect the quality of their services, it is important to check what they offer and how do they perform in the main aspects of a VPN.

Servers location
ibVPN counts with servers in Canada, Sweden, Ireland, United Kingdom, United States, Russia, Romania, Luxembourg, Switzerland, Hong Kong, Spain, Netherlands, France, Germany and Italy. Dynamic IPs are available through some of their servers located in Canada, United Stated and United Kingdom.

Protocols
They support diverse protocols such as OpenVPN (for which ibVPN uses the strongly secure Blowfish algorithm with 256 bit keys), PPTP, LT2P/ IPSec and recently they also added SSTP to this list. The best protocol for you depends on your needs but OpenVPN is one of the most secure and fastest protocol, even though it is not included in any version of the Operating Systems available so it requires installation.  PPTP on the other hand, is the protocol included in many OS but it is not as secure and reliable as the others.
Plans
ibVPN  has multiple packages including their standard VPN package with different options such as Ultimate VPN (a very comprehensive option with a price of $10.95 USD per month) and the Torrent VPN plan that has more limited features but that only costs $4.95 per month. You can get savings when you subscribe for longer period (3, 6 months or one year).  They also offer plans for small businesses with an inclusive package that gives you the option to avail 20 accounts for $99.95 per month.
Customer Support
Even though their customer support was helpful, they are not always available through their live chat and the response time is not as fast as you would expect. They can also be contacted by email and ticket support system and they offer remote assistance.
Conclusion

ibVPN may not be one of the most popular VPN providers and their website is not as professional as what you see from other companies.  However, they offer a very convenient price and an acceptable customer support.  They lack on special features and additional technical options but for a low price you can get a goof basic VPN to protect your online privacy and access any website regardless of the location.

Cyberghost VPN review

In the last few years, the importance of subscribing to a VPN service has been highlighted as internet users are getting more concerned about the risk of having their privacy compromised or being a victim of online fraud. More people are opting for using a VPN service when they connect to internet in order to protect their privacy and ensuring that their information is kept safe from eavesdroppers and fraudsters. With the growing popularity of VPNs, the number of providers available in the market has increased and users have a wider selection of companies to choose from.  One of the benefits that internet users can expect when there is a large amount of companies in the industry is that all VPN providers have to step up their game, offering better features and service in order to gain more customers. One of the companies that is aiming  to provide a service that will appeal to anyone looking for a secure online connection is CyberGhost. This company is based in Romania and as such, they are covered by data retention laws applied in the EU. However,  the company guarantees that they keep no logs or records of their customers’ online activities as the laws have not been officially applied. CyberGhost offers a free VPN service that is quite good, so we were looking forward to try their paid option as well. Belo you will find more details about how CyberGhost performs in the main categories.

Servers Location
CyberGhost is committed to protect the privacy and identity of their customers and one of the features that shows this dedication is their impressive network of servers that allow you to switch your IP address to disguise your location and enable you to access content from any website around the world.

Their website contains information on how to configure OpenVPN with each of the operating systems that are compatible and how to set up L2TP/IPsec for iPhone, tablets and smartphones, which are some of the devices that can be used with their service.

Plans

One of the most appealing things about CyberGhost is that their free service is quite good and offers a good set of features but they also have paid packages that are very reasonable. When you subscribe to their Premium or Premium Plus and enjoy great features such as access to all their servers and locations. With Premium Plus, you can use their VPN service in up to 5 devices. The prices are quite convenient and you can set up a subscription to their Premium service for 24 months for only €49.99, 12 months cost €29.99 and one month €4.99. Their Premium Plus costs €79.99 for 24 months, €49.99 for 12 months and €7.99 per month.

Conclusion
CyberGhost impressed us with the quality of their free service and their no logging policy, which are two points that show their commitment to help internet users that wish to protect their privacy. The speed of their service is quite good and their Antispy add-on has features designed to enhance the protection of your privacy online. The prices for their paid plans are good value considering the features and the service that you get. Even though (as with all providers), you should not take their no logging policy for granted, CyberGhost is a good option to ensure that your data is secure on internet and that you can enjoy total freedom online.
