Canvakala is a new plugin that is getting rave reviews


The recently released plugin (special launch price $17) aims to give word-press users a replacement for the inadequate image handling that is built-in. Some people claimed it had the power of photoshop while being a lot easier to use, so I thought that I would try out.

..

Here’s the link if you want to check it out (this is a direct link not one that would earn me a commission)

Claims:

..

Find Royalty-free Images 

Easily Find images from sites like pixabay, flickr, openclipart & instagram, ALL from your WP dashboard!
YES, it did that but you have to have active accounts at Flickr & Pixabay first, so be prepared to upload some photos there first if you don’t have active accounts there already (at Pixabay at least)

..

Manage & Edit Images EASILY 

Once you’ve picked an image you can resize/crop to any size you want or to built-in size suggestion like for FB ads, cover etc.

Yes, this feature is excellent
 

Choose from 20 Automatic Special Effects also apply Instagram like filters to your image


Make your image UNIQUES and STANDOUT with some WOW effects!  – 

 

Lots of effects but of limited use in my opinion

..

Insert Your Image Easily To Your Blog Post or Download it for other purposes!

After you finish designing or editing your image you can easily use it for whatever you want!

Yes, that can be done easily too.

..

Adds a Full Photoshop like Editor to your site –

Well, it does add some features found in photoshop but the plugin is not designed to replace photoshop any more that a Mini would replace a Rolls, but they both will get you from one place to another in their own way.
..

Some of the features advertised are only available in the Pro version (OTO1 – $27 at time of launch)> If you have a lot of WordPress sites, want to have more choice that people who only bought the regular edition or if price is not an issue for you, then the pro edition gives you a heap more choices.

..

I’ve only tried it on two sites so far – but does the editor does not open to search for images on the other site. I’ll be sending a support ticket to see if there are any known incompatibilities with other plugins or themes.

Would I recommend it? Yes if your time is more valuable than the cost. It certainly made the finding & posting of the image above very easy, but I have many sources for graphics asn other good programs to edit them, so did not buy the upgrade (was very tempted though – I am one of those impulse buyers sellers love!)

And don’t think it’s not free because it’s cheap and nasty because it isn’t.  It’s actually a very high quality product and I use it myself – this is free because the creators are wanting to help people get traffic to their sites and offers...

..

Let’s face it, we were all told it was easy to do this interent martketing thing, right? NOT TRUE – some parts of the process might be easy for some people and other parts of it might be easy for others, but getting enough quality traffic to help with rankings and make sales is NOT EASY AT ALL!YouTube Marketing Blunders This free software will help with that.

Money-in-wallet

We all want to make extra money to supplement our income these days,

but the question is, what is the best way to go? What opportunities are legitimate and realistic for ordinary people without a big budget?

.

To give you an opinion other than mine, I went searching for sites with that seemed to me to provide good advice and found this one that gives a top ten list.

.

Don’t expect everything on the list to suit your circumstances, but there are some good suggestions there and maybe the hardest choice will be which one to try first.

money_5Top 10 Ways to Earn Extra Money Online
http://www.australianbusinesstimes.com Sat, 01 Feb 2014 10:38:53 GMT

Everything from self-publishing e-books to entering online tournaments has the potential to bring in an extra wage. The following are ten top ways to earn an income online. One – Self-Publish an eBook: Self-publishing books …
Read more …

Now, some of these ideas would not do for me at all, such as online poker tournaments or forex trading, but the list includes others that do appeal, such as self-publishing or doing this as a service for clients, online freelancing (and another site not mentioned in the article that I use is People per Hour) or setting up a consultant site.

.

Whatever you decide to do, just pick one method and give it a good go. Too many people try one thing for a short time but give up before that idea has a chance to bring in any money
