well every web developer certainly need this baby to upload their files from local computer to remote server in order to publish their work.

in early days of my work i was introduce with cuteFTP (don’t ask why they neme it that way, it’s not that cute though). at first it was a fine ftp client tool up until i need to upload my work to a remote server with secure web host. back then cuteFTP unable to access this kind of web host.

then i start googling and found some fine ftp client; coreFTP, bitvise Tunnelier, ipswitch FTP are among other FTP client that i have tried. but none of them suits me (well the reason was none of them have the facility to connect to web secure host or SFTP :D). oh i found some good sFTP client but most of them are paid apps (boo..!!)

then a friend of mine recommend winSCP. a free sFTP client, and this ine just about right. the navigation are friendly (commander-like or windows-like, up to you), the connection was fast, and… its FREE! 😀 hah.. beat that.


to tell you the truth i haven’t maximized all the feature that it has to offer, but untill now it haven’t let me down a bit so no reason to search other sFTP client.

another of my favoite tool. i’m a big fan of this one.

most screen capture tool only give you the ability to capture the images on your screen, leaving the rest of the image below of your screen. this usually happen when your the image you want to capture much larget then your display monitor.

but not with this one. beside the common screen-given image capture, FastStone Capture lets you capture all of the content in your screen even it’s streched long down below of your screen. very neat. on FC it called “Capture Scrolling Window”. i use this a lot of time and saves me some time merging pieces of images in photoshop (hate it…hate it…hate it…)

it doesn’t stop there. with FC you can capture a freehand region. fantastic !! so you are free from box type image capture method.

once you capture what you want, FastStone Capture will deliver it to its image editor. there you can draw, add some caption, resize, give effect, watermark, etc. cool huh

in addition, you will get screen color picker and screen magnifier.

just get it ok, trust me with this one.

if you ever need a web color picker tool then Color Shchemer is one tool i can recommend.

Color Schemer

and why is this tool so great you ask? because i use it 🙂 for those of you who lack of color knowledge and sometime just don’t how to mix color then CS might be your greatest asset.

this tool equipped with color saver. so if you have color for a web project for instance, then you might want to save all the color you use on that project in a single file with this. just drag your favorite colors to the “Favorite Colors” box and after you have some then save it. rename that color if you want to.

then there this Color Scheme Analyzer. if you want a preview of color mixing of your saved favorite colors, then CS can show you.

and if you want to know what is the result by mixing two colors, yes it can answer your sense of curiosity.

one thing though, this tool already help me with numorous task for picking and mixing in my project. so this one i surely recommend.
