Using irFanView to batch edit images

Submitted by tresero on Thu, 06/28/2018 - 09:40

I recently decided to repurpose a product and turn it into a book and Kindle version. The Kindle version had no real issues with images since they get down sampled anyway, but the printed book needed to have the images at at least 300 dpi (dots per inch). If not the images would almost certainly be grainy, and I don’t want that. Most screen capture software saves the images at 96 dpi or sometimes 72 dpi. I started using Photoshop and taking each image and making it 384 dpi by using the bicubic sampling functions. It was a pain.

Using BackWPup for WordPress backups

Submitted by tresero on Thu, 06/28/2018 - 09:40

Many of you are looking for a free way to do back ups on WordPress, and even though I've got some scripts to back up whole directories and that on my website, it's really nice to be able to split each WordPress instance or website into its own backup, just in case one goes bad or you need to move it. I've been using BackWPup. I think that's how they pronounce it, but it's WordPress back up plug-in for a year or so now, and it's only gotten better. You can look for it. Just type in BackWPup.

Well, technically not Wordpress, but your hosting is probably vulnerable.

From http://www.darkreading.com/database_security/security/attacks/showArticle.jhtml?articleID=224300052&cid=nl_DR_DAILY_2010-04-13_h if you want to read the whole thing.

There was an attack on Wordpress blogs hosted at Network Solutions, but your host is probably guilty as well.
