How to increase mp3 volume? You got an mp3 music file with low volume so you want to increase the volume.

If you simply need to extract bin files, you don’t need to buy a software to do that — I just downloaded a RAR archive containing a 600MB Bin file and found that apparently my installed 7-zip couldn’t extract the file, so I searched for a free extraction tool that can extract bin file. Surprisingly, among ZipGenius, PeaZip, IZarc, Universal Extractor, Zipeg and some other free file extraction tools, I found that only IZarc can extract bin files. I even tried to use Winrar, the most popular extraction shareware, but still failed to extract it. I used IZarc for the extraction and the result was great. [click to continue…]

An animated GIF image offers an attractive way to display your picture as people are naturally more interested in moving objects rather than the static ones. Since an animated GIF image consists of a series of frames that are displayed one after the other, you have to prepare a number of images beforehand to create one. Here I use 5 JPG images to produce an animated GIF. There are many online GIF animation makers, but here we use only Picasion to create animated GIF online. It’s free and doesn’t require any sign up to use the tool. [click to continue…]

Sometimes you might find PDF files whose texts are heavily surrounded by images. In my case, I usually find this pattern on PDF ebooks discussing about photography. While some images are useful to provide visual explanations, some are just there to make the content looks appeal to be read. Some pages even put the text right within a big image even though it isn’t actually needed. For pages like these, you might want to extract the content out of the image. If you don’t feel like want to install anything just for the extraction, you can use Google Docs as an alternative. If you already have a Gmail account, then you can directly access Google Docs.
