Inserting images in Gmail email to give some color to your message

Previously we had published a simple tutorial on inserting images as your message background in Thunderbird.

Here is how to insert images (not as background) to give some color to your Gmail message.

In Gmail, normally you have no option for inserting images in message body. But a plugin from Gmail Lab help you add some spice in your messages.

After log-in in your Gmail account click on ‘Settings’ tab. Then click the ‘Lab’ tab and scroll down to find the plugin “Inserting Images” and enable the plugin.

Now go back to the main Gmail page and click Compose Mail. You should now notice a new icon labeled Insert Image in the Formatting taskbar.

Click it to add an image to your email. You can upload image files from your computer, or from URLs and can be cropped to fit into message. (via)

PaperBus-free & fast web proxy solution for anonymous internet surfing

There are several free proxy solutions available for downloading ( we had covered few of them in the previous posts ), but from my personal experience most of them are very slow in my country. If you are looking for a free, fast and reliable proxy solution for anonymous surfing, Here is a new multi-platform application, PaperBus (ad-supported) which lets you surf anonymously and bypass internet filters. Paper bus (brought you by Open Terrace Ltd the same company that made commercial proxy service Freedur) is very easy to use. Simply install, and run. No registration required. The only down side is there will be an ad web browser tab popping up in every twenty minutes while you are using it. Another interesting feature of PaperBus is that you can create a list of websites you don't want to surf through PaperBus. PaperBus is compatible with Windows, Mac and Linux systems. Download appropriate version from here. ( via )
