Online Printing

Looking for economical printing for large/jumbo postcards (or something simple, won't be mailed).

Anyone try Vista recently? I've always shied away, but they are cheap.

Others I am looking at:

Moo.com (their Luxe cards I had made were 'ok', not as impressive as I had hoped) and Modern Postcard (decent experience 8 years ago).

Any others? These will not be mailed out. Quality is most important.

Mockups

Looking for some quality mockups for logos, business cards, web, etc.

Free would be nice, but quality is more important.

(Google is showing me a billion, I see that, but one good link would save a headache or two :-) )

Standing Desk

There were some links to standing/moving desks a while back, but I can't seem to find them (surprise, given QBN's wonderful search feature!).

Anyone has some of the links?

Gmail photo colors

Is this a known problem with gmail - photographs do not display correctly (colors are off). Both the preview image and when you enlarge look horrible.

Same email in Yahoo or Outlook look fine (preview sucks in Yahoo too, colors are off/desaturated, but look fine when you enlarge).

Notes: same image sent from Gmail looks fine in Yahoo and Outlook, so Gmail isn't changing anything, just making things look bad.

Viewing in Chrome.

(I've noticed Dropbox does the same to the images and had to stop using it for my photography...back to emails via Yahoo)

Any suggestions?

Time Keeping

Anyone have a good, simple software (for PC) for keeping track of time?

I need to keep track of others time and give them something simple to use to report/track.

Toggl (https://new.toggl.com/#) seems pretty good, anything else?

PDF Editing

Looking for a simple (ideally free) program to edit PDF's that have security/password.

I just need to add notes/comments and would prefer not to have to go back to clients.

Funny that I can use GoodReader on my iPad, but can't use Acrobat. Annoying, really.

Suggestions?

Photo Viewer

What is everyone using for quick previews of images? I liked the simple Windows Photo Viewer, but on my new computer everything is soooo dark (doesn't matter the color profile, etc., and looks fine in Lr, Ps, Quicktime, etc.).

I just want something super fast to preview the jpgs, I am fine with Lr and Ps for organizing and editing.

Thanks

Project timekeeping software

Looking for some very basic software to keep track of time per projects.

Something really simple...I used Plock ages ago, but it ended up not compatible with Windows 7 (can't seem to find it now).

Any suggestions? PC compatible please

Laptop

Looking for a new laptop.

Requirements:

1. Looks decent
2. NO stupid numerical keyboard on right side (my God, why the hell do they all come with this now??! I've never, not once, used mine on my reg keyboard...my bookkeeper uses it. I am not a bookkeeper)
3. Powerful enough for light 3D, video, PS, etc.

15" (don't think i want another 17")

(I love the MacBook quality and screen, but am liking Window's 8 touchscreen functionality. iOS looks so dated, too)

Any suggestions?

Looking for minimarlist WordPress themes/templates.

Something like this:

One of the best I have seen - looks like a nice portfolio site, not the usual grid/blog/generic look.

MT

No Media Temple posts yet?? Looks like the entire thing is down (at least for half my sites). No email, no websites, no FTP access.

Woohoo

iPads for clients (and video)

Giving a client an iPad for a present.

Does anyone know if there is a way to put our video on it without setting up a iTunes account (as it will be handed over to them)?

Is there a way to 'lock' the iPad so the video doesn't get erased when they setup their iTunes on it (assume they'll want to)?

Or is iTunes simply going to make it impossible (and I should sell it, go buy an Android or Windows device?)?

Thanks
