Recover your files with EaseUS Data Recovery Free 12.0

In the XXI century and in the midst of the digital era in which we live, the uses of the folders and large file cabinets, with bulky records on paper, reels or photographic rolls are decreasing day by day. Now emails are part of everyday life. We exchange documents, photos and videos through Facebook, Twitter and even WhatsApp on our mobiles, all within the reach of a click. In the same way, every day we can store more and more information in increasingly smaller devices, 64GB of information on a pen drive as small as the nail of your thumb. Having records and files digitally multiplies the storage capacity, but can violate the availability or privacy of information. If you have the information stored in a server or cloud, in theory you could access it from anywhere in the world. Of course, you would depend on the availability of a computer, cell phone or tablet (with battery or access to electricity).

As for storage devices, although they do not need an Internet connection, these devices are prone to being infected with computer viruses that could erase your information. When something like this happens to us we usually go quickly to the recycling bin to try to recover the file we need, if this does not work because we have already emptied the bin, we can find ourselves in a bind. However, this situation does not have to mean the end of the world, since on the Internet there are different methods of recovering deleted files, including data recovery software.

Today we present one of the best alternatives: EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard Free 12.0

EaseUS is an international software company founded in 2004, which specializes in software recovery, backup and data transfer, with excellent service quality with more than 100 million users and presence in more than 160 countries around the world.

How to recover lost files?

To start using the EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard you must download the program, which you can do from the official EaseUS website in a safe and virus free way.

Broadly, data recovery steps can be divided into 3 parts; selecting a location, scanning, previewing and recovering lost files.

What to know:

– The program interface will show you the different storage units connected or integrated to your computer
– Select the drive you want to scan for deleted or damaged files
– A quick scan of the selected unit will start and the recovered files will appear, this part is really fast
– When finishing the fast scan the program will proceed to perform a deeper scan with which you can access more files

How to Activate Battery Saving Automatically on Android

Battery consumption is something that concerns all users of phones and tablets. Unless we have a smartphone like the Ulefone Power 3 or the

Vernee X , the battery is a factor that we must watch closely if we do not want to stay hanging at the most inopportune moment. Today, we will see how to activate battery saving mode automatically on Android. Of the best thing to prolong a little more the useful life of the terminal until the next load.

How to activate the battery saving automatically

When we access the Android settings menu, in the section dedicated to the battery we find several data and configuration options. If we click on “ Battery saving ” we will access a new section.

Here we must click on the text “ Activate automatically ” so that the system offers us 3 options:

Never activate automatically.

Activate the battery saving when you reach 5%.

Activate the battery saving when it reaches 15%.

It is not that Android has a lot of broadband in this sense, but at least we can manage to extend the life of the battery a good pinch if we configure the automatic saving from 15%, for example.

Finally, remember that the battery saving must be left unchecked , with the tab “NO”. Otherwise, the battery saving will be activated regardless of the remaining battery level.

What happens when we activate the battery saving mode?

When we activate the energy saving mode we help to prolong the battery life by deactivating certain functions of our device. In this way, phone performance is reduced and things like vibration, location services and data transmission in the background are limited.

To give us an idea, if we have the battery saving activated, the mail apps will stop synchronizing with the server and we will not receive new emails, nor will we receive new messages on WhatsApp or new notifications from other apps. Unless clear, we enter these applications to see if there is any news.

9 Mistakes you are Making with your Product Photographs and how to Avoid them

How many times has it happened to you that you have finished that beautiful job you do (stationery, crafts, craft), you imagine the beautiful photo you want to make?

: with good light, background, adequate exposure, divine complements, clear … you prepare everything, camera in hand, illusion to rage,   and in the end the result is very far from what you imagined ?

This type of situations I have lived on more than one occasion, especially in my beginnings. It joins the feeling of “I can not”, “this is impossible” … makes that level of frustration is high. And it goes wrong.

Do not worry because today I’m going to talk to you about 10 of the most common problems we find related to the theme of craft photography every day .

The best that this type of errors cover basic very basic issues, but no less important. These types of errors are most commonly related to:

Style,

Lighting,

Composition and

Camera configuration It is particularly important if you market your products via online store or shop (I love that name :)) or if you sell on Etsy or any other online craft market, that your photographs are successful, striking, beautiful … that you curres them, and work them well.

The poor composition, bad lighting, style problems, will not only make possible customers leave  , but in the end also other bloggers and colleagues in the industry will not want to talk about your products.

I have noticed that if people see a beautiful picture, they comment it, share it, tell other people about you, about your work. Bloggers look for beautiful and eye-catching images. If your photograph is not up to the task, you can also lose some opportunity in this way.

Come now with some very common mistakes and simple to fix . The solution to each of them uses simple techniques that you can find at home, and a professional team is not required. I hope these examples help you, and if you suffer this problem, these solutions will help you.

1. Accessories that do not add, but subtract

In the course “Photographing the beautiful” I talk a lot about this. Your objects, along with the work that you want to appear in the images, have to tell a story. Accessories can help tell the story of your work, and also your brand.   Think well when you add a supplement if it adds up, if it adds value. If you think it does not add up, it’s probably that it does not. I sometimes, if I doubt, I make the same photo with and without that complement, and then I stay with the one that transmits me the most

When you start and do not know very well what add-ons you can start by putting some detail of the materials or ingredients with which that product has been made.

We can completely change the appearance of a photo when we eliminate the prop that does not change and we put the appropriate

2. Use an inappropriate background

Many people use a base without thinking much. With a fabric with spots, wrinkled, folded, different materials that mislead.

Think that the fund does not have to call attention too much, but be a subtle base that makes your photographic composition something beautiful.

If the background is too dark, unless you take pictures of still lifes or just look for that mystery effect, those backgrounds act as a distraction. Neutral and soft backgrounds are a better option. And now the marble background is fashionable. I have got a piece and I love it. (it is the base of an old bedside table)

In case of doubt, remember that the simplest is generally the best. If you use a simple background, you allow the client to completely focus on your product.

3. Edit the photo a bit, do not miss it

On everything related to trimming .

In my case it’s the first thing I do, I remove from the image what I do not like and distract .

I usually photograph the area well, and so I avoid that I forget something, but then at the end when I download the pictures on my computer if I see something that I do not like I usually cut out the photo.

Seldom do I not do the truth . By doing this, you already have the base to later put more light or see what you want to do with that picture. See the space that you have left for example to put a beautiful phrase. When you cut a lot, and a small photo is left, it’s worth shooting the photograph again.

See the same cropped photo

4. Avoid whenever you can use the direct flash. We use the direct

flash believing that we give light to the photograph, especially when we are in a dark room. And the “flash” what it does is burn that part and get it white more. If you also photograph objects that shine (mirrors, glass, fruit …) be careful with the use of the flash so that rare flashes do not come out.

My photo of the apples on Instagram, you can not imagine what it cost me that there were no strange reflections in the photo.

To avoid it if I use flash, what I do is put a little piece of kitchen paper in front of it, and that makes the strong light of the flash diffuse.

5. Moved photos, more focused

This I see so obvious, it happens a lot.

I see photos moved, and that dizzies a little. Balance the exposure, maintain an adequate distance between the lens and your product, choose the appropriate aperture setting, the focal point and stay still.

Using tripod if you have it is perfect. And if not bad a box. Sometimes I use my children’s shoe box as a basis to leave the camera.

6. Photos in low light

Under-exposure is one of the easiest problems to detect . These types of photos are very dark . Just without color, and the colors tend to be black or gray.

To avoid this problem, try to use the natural light that comes in through your window (provided it is not direct, to avoid shadows) and reflector to reflect the light through all the parts of your object.

The reflector that I use is homemade, a poliespan board. In Leroy Merlin you can buy it for four dollars. You can also move the camera settings if you shoot in manual mode to allow more light to enter through your lens. If you raise the ISO value, as long as your camera accepts it and does not create “noise” (grainy) in the photos, it is very effective. Normally I have 200 but sometimes 400 gives me more luminosity in the photos and it looks very good. You can also lower the shutter speed or raise the aperture.

The first with low light, the second with more light.

7. Overexposed photos

I have to admit, and I’ve said it more than once that I like photos that are a bit overexposed. I really like the photo where the dominant color is white. But you have to be careful because if you are very overexposed at the end the image is burned and information is lost and you stop seeing parts of the photograph. There is no data that creates the photo.

To avoid this, you have to do the opposite to the previous case, lower ISO, raise the shutter speed, or decrease the aperture. This kind of thing can only be done in semiautomatic or manual mode.

8. Very blue photos

When you take a picture, you have to try to make the color as true as possible. I also see many photos with blue or orange tones.

You can solve that by setting the white balance well. Depending on the light you have, use one another: neon, cloudy, sun, shadow … The white balance tells the camera what is pure white. Neither bluish, nor pink or orange. And the drawings that appear help you to know what kind of light you have.

In the photo below you can see the blue but very little. However, the one above is totally bluish. 9. Very hard shadows

Another problem that I see is also the subject of very hard shadows. When it gives the direct sun to your objects this makes you see very dark shadows and it does not usually look pretty. Very dark shadows are black and “sharp”

You have to try to avoid direct sunlight . Think of a cloudy day, those days are perfect. Those days when the sun passes through the white clouds and fades is perfect that light.

Pay to the window, put your hand, if the light creates a very strong shadow that window is not correct. You have to find the window where the sun comes in softly

And here’s what I had to tell you today. How are you? Do you make any of these mistakes?

If you have a camera in which you can play with the parameters of the manual mode you have a lot of won. I hope you get the game right from that camera and your photos tell stories, your stories.

If you need a little push to make the photos of your dreams,   the second edition of “Photographing the beautiful” begins at the end of the month and it comes with a great offer if you have a SLR photograph machine and you do not know how to use it. 

All the info by clicking on the image :). Two sensational courses if you want to learn once and for all to make beautiful beautiful photos of your work.

Chinchin for some beautiful and wonderful photos

LibreOffice is updated to version 6.0.1 with an important security patch

Just a few days ago we informed you that the top managers of the popular free open source office suiteLibreOffice, we’re launching an awaited new version of their software reaching version 6.0, all with a good number of new features and bug fixes.

However, a few days after its official launch, the new version has received another update, perhaps somewhat earlier than initially expected, but which is responsible, among many other things, for patching an important security flaw detected recently. At the same time that this revision of the suite was launched, users of the same will also be able to have a new stable version of LibreOffice 5.4.5 from this moment, so this version is also ready for download.

It is worth mentioning that this first review carried out on the LibreOffice 6.0 open source project, appeared only a few hours ago through official channels and available for all supported platforms, together with the fifth maintenance update of LibreOffice 5.4, as we have mentioned. In this way, both version 6.0.1 and 5.4.5 of the suite are now available for GNU / LinuxmacOS, and Windows, in which several bug fixes have been included.

LibreOffice 6.0.1 fixes a serious security error

In particular, LibreOffice 6.0.1 has received a total of 75 corrections for the most recent failures that have been detected, in addition to a patch for a major security breach. On the other hand, LibreOffice 5.4.5 is updated by correcting 69 errors in several of its components and to improve its stability.

All this does nothing more than demonstrating, once again, the level of response that the top managers of the project have for the errors that are detected in their software, widely used all over the world.

That is why The Document Foundation urges users of both versions of the program to update as soon as possible in order to benefit from these corrections. Similarly, LibreOffice 6.0.1 is recommended for all those more advanced users and technology enthusiasts, while those who seek a higher level of reliability and stability in their daily work with the office suite, for now, opt for LibreOffice 5.4. 5. It is evident that with time, LibreOffice 6.0 will become as stable as the series 5.4, but until then, if this stability is a priority, it is recommended to use the oldest one.

Finally, we will say that LibreOffice 6.0.2 will arrive at the end of this month or the beginning of March, while revision 5.4.6 should be made available to everyone in the last week of March. This series will reach the end of its useful life on June 11, 2018, when LibreOffice 6.0 receives its fifth maintenance update.

How to edit PDF for free using LibreOffice

LibreOffice is a powerful office suite platform of open source that works in many ways like the popular Microsoft Office. So you have applications to work with spreadsheets or Word documents, but we can also use the application to create, edit and save documents in PDF format.

And this is a functionality that this suite supports by default since it opens them in the LibreOffice Draw application. In this way, we can open the integrated Draw tool and use the “File” menu to load PDF documents, or from the start wizard. In the same way, we have the possibility of associating this productivity suite with the PDF file format so that it is the default application to work with them so that by double clicking on these PDFs, they open automatically here.

To say that if the PDF document with which we are going to deal with is large, the opening process may take a while, and although a PDF of one or two pages opens almost instantly, PDFs with hundreds of pages may take up to more than a minute The funny thing is that we can create a new document from scratch using the Draw tool , so we only have to make sure to select ” File / Export as PDF ” when we have finished generating it.

Create and edit PDF files in LibreOffice

In addition, LibreOffice Draw shows the pages of the PDF document loaded to the left of the interface, in a sidebar, while the content of the selected page is in the editing area.

This content will be seen without problems in most cases, but it is possible that sometimes we notice that the editor may have some problems with more complex page designs. Therefore editing documents with rendering problems can be more annoying due to the faults that we will find in the visualization and editing of them.

On the other hand say that editing PDF documents work as it should since we can click on any position to add, edit or delete text, and even use advanced functions such as inserting images, changing the format, or adding tables. Of course, we must not forget that once we have finished, we must select ” Export as PDF ” in the ” File ” menu, because if we do not do this, we will save the document as a file in ODG format, the default used by LibreOffice Draw.

At the same time and when selecting export as PDF, the options corresponding to these files are opened, among which we can find the sign with watermark, establish the level of compassionencryption, or permissions, among many other options.

These are the news that will come with LibreOffice 6.1

For some time now, The Document Foundation has been fully working on the new version of LibreOffice 6.1 for its launch in August of this 2018 and has promised that it will add many improvements and some new features to the popular office suite open source.

In fact, this is a program that has already reached 1 million downloads in version 6.0 in just two weeks after its launch, so due to this success, are at full capacity for the next version, LibreOffice 6.1, you will see the light officially in August. Say that this will be the first major update to the 6.x series of the office suite, and will add new features and improvements to the current version. This is a multiplatform open source office suite that is used by millions of PC users around the world today.

Well, among the new features and improvements that will be implemented in the next version, we can highlight the optional “on-line advice” for the Writer tool , the ability to order images in Calc , along with a new implemented option called “Insertion of Image “, to allow anchoring the image to a cell or page in the same tool.

Also, Writer is also getting a basic list of styles, which can be accessed from the ” Styles ” menu option, in addition to the ability to insert page numbers in documents or support for new text formats.

On the other hand, the user interface of Calc is also receiving some new options in the context menu in the form of commands designed to work if the mouse cursor is in a certain range, in a field with validation attribute, or in a field that has a condition, for example.

More improvements that will come to LibreOffice 6.1

As far as the Impress and Draw applications are concerned, they will receive a new menu that will allow exporting text to the DOCX format, in addition to the Microsoft Excel 2003 XML import filter has finally been revised, and the ” Link to Calc’s ” External Data ” now supports Text / CSV files.

On the other hand, it seems that the new LibreOffice 6.1 will further improve the ” LibreOffice On-line ” component, which allows users to use the basic functionality of LibreOffice through a web browser, adding new features such as the grouping of columns and rows in Calc, among many other things that we will know. These are some of the most outstanding novelties, although a good number of functions will be added when LibreOffice 6.1 is released this summer.

How to delete the background of an image directly from Word or Powerpoint

Word and PowerPoint are two of the most used tools in the Microsoft suite. And is that every day there are many text documents or presentations that are created or modified. In these documents or presentations usually include images, which can be added from our disk, although as we saw recently, we can add images in Word and PowerPoint directly from Pixabay. In any case, we may want to remove the background of these images to make our document or presentation more professional, therefore, we will show how to delete the background of an image directly from Word or PowerPoint.

In this way, the use of other image editing applications will not be necessary and may be more difficult to manage. And is that the latest versions of Microsoft Word and PowerPoint have the option that allows us to delete the background of an image directly from the Office tool itself. 

Steps to follow to erase the background of an image in Word or Powerpoint

For this, the first thing we have to do is open Word or Powerpoint. Now, we can open a document or presentation that contains the images we want to edit or create a new one and add the images either from the hard drive or from Pixabay if we have the complemented installed. One way or another, once we add an image to our Word document or PowerPoint presentation, the next thing we have to do is select it and go to the Format menu option.

With this option selected, we will see how in the toolbar the option Remove background appears in the Adjust section. Just click on the Remove background option, the options will be shown in the top menu of the Office tool, Mark the areas to keepMark the areas to removeDelete markDownload all changes and Keep changes.

Therefore, we can select the tool Mark the areas to keep and click on the image to mark the silhouette of the shape, object or part of the photo we want to keep. The rest, once we have marked it correctly, will disappear automatically when clicking on the option Keep changes. At that time, we will see how we have left the part of the image we have selected without any background so that we can place it in our text document or PowerPoint presentation where appropriate.

Microsoft Office 2019: Everything we know about this new version

The office is Microsoft’s office suite, the best known and used all over the world. Unlike other applications, it does not usually release new versions every year, but usually does it every 3 or 4 years, being able to give better support to the current versions and launch the new ones with as many improvements and new features as possible. It has been 3 years since the release of the current version of Office 2016, and for this reason, Microsoft is already finalizing the launch of the next big update of its office suite:  Microsoft Office 2019.

In September of last year, Microsoft spoke for the first time about Microsoft Office 2019, which will be the next Office update. This new version will reach all users this year, although at the moment we do not know very well when. Anyway, although we can download and use it in the coming months, for the moment Microsoft has been releasing information from the new update with a dropper.

Next, let’s see everything we know, so far, of Microsoft Office 2019.

Everything we know about Microsoft Office 2019

At the moment, the only official information from Microsoft about this new update is that Office 2019 will only work in Windows 10, a very hard decision but that makes a lot of sense, considering that support for Windows 7 will end in 2020.

Regarding the novelties of Office 2019, no official information of Microsoft is known, although according to the rumors and leaks that have been known, we can summarize them, for now, in:

  • New functions for drawing and writing by hand, such as ink effects and pressure.
  • New tables and formulas of Excel.
  • More and new animations for PowerPoint.
  • Greater integration with Cortana and new voice recognition features.

We can not know for sure anything related to the price of this new office suite, although, if you look at the launch price of Office 2016 Home, it is very likely to remain at 150 dollars if we want the independent license, without subscriptions. Users who already pay for Office 356 every year will be able to download this new version of Office as soon as it is available without having to pay anything else for it.

We remind you that the subscription to Office 365 is $ 99 per year with the possibility of sharing it with 5 teams or 69 euros in the Personal version for a single user. This new version sure works as a universal UWP application that we can download from the Microsoft Store, although we do not know if we can also use it as a classic Win32 application or we will only receive the UWP version.

As for its launch, it is estimated that it will be around mid-2018, although we bet it will be after summer, probably even at the same time as Redstone 5. In addition, users who subscribe to Office 365, if they want, can download Right now the Insider version of Office 2019 to be able to have a first contact with what will be the next update of this office suite.

The useful life of Microsoft Office 2019 will be 5 years in its main support, and two years more (3 years less than the previous versions) in its extended support. Thus, we will have Office 2019 support until 2025.

Over the next few months, we will learn new data related to this new version of Office, a version that will not only mark the future of the office suite but will be an incentive for lagged users to make the leap to Windows 10.

What are you waiting for the next Microsoft Office 2019?
