QuickImageCM - Contextual menu plugin for MacOS X that
displays graphic image files without launching any
application. It also has some other feature like
adding/removing thumbnail icons, copying image to clipboard,
moving to trash, enlarging/reducing view size.

PhotoToolCM - Contextual Menu Plugin allows supposedly
Loseless Image Resizer, Renamer and Framer 2.0

DVDTheque - 2.7.5 DVDTheque allows you to organize your film
collection by DVD, film, picture, staff, language and
bonus. French, German, Italian and English versions are
included. Even allows me to link to stored Movie Trailers.

NicePlayer - 0.93 This program aims to be a QuickTime player
designed for playing movies nicely for a person who likes
to watch or present movies on their computer (such as the
casual viewer or the video artist). This program features
full screen or border-less floating windows, convenient
controls for scrubbing or queuing movies, and on the fly
playlist creation.

I liked Snap n Drag until I found Image Well. It does so much more and is loaded with features.
[www.xtralean.com]

"ImageWell allows you to easily resize and edit images that you can quickly send over the Internet to your iDisk or web server, drag and drop to another application including an email message, copy to the clipboard, or copy the url or HTML tags of the uploaded image for easy insertion into a discussion board post or other HTML document. Using the History list, you can copy selected files and paste them all at the same time with one click of the mouse.
You can set up multiple server locations (and folders) making it easy to just choose one from the location drop down list without having to change the information each time you want to send to a new server location or a different folder.
You can add labels and watermarks, frame your image with a shape and/or drop shadow, rotate the image, crop it, add a thought cloud or balloon, add a square, circle or arrow, and easily adjust the size. And if you forget to rename a new image, ImageWell can warn you that an image with the same name already exists on the server so you don't accidentally overwrite it.
If all you want to do is simply send a file to the web, choose the location from the drop down list, and drag and drop the file over top of the Send button. You can do this with Quicktime movies, .doc, .xls, .pdf, .gif, .png, and most other commonly used file types. If you just want to edit an image and save it to your computer, you can do that too!"

Just because it has two clutches, shifts faster, uses a torque converter or has near-infinite gear ratios, requires less driver intervention and is more efficient doesn't make it better in my opinion.

ImageWell is cool. I used to use it quite a bit but have been using ThumbsUp more now. It can resize and rename an entire folder of images in an instant. Both are handy in their own way.

Restores tabbed/popup folders to OS X. Restores about 95% of the OS 9 functionality.

Anyone on here tried both NeoOffice and OpenOffice? Just
curious which one you liked more and why.

NeoOfficeJ:

It does things that MS Office couldn't...like embed a picture as a background. From what I read, the latest MS Word can do it. But NeoOffice is free and runs fairly fast.
