Wonderful online tool to re-size and compress images!

Ok so i was having a real hard time finding a tool that resizes a picture and compresses it.For online usage and stuff we often require to shred some extra fat off our pictures,but preserver the quality of at the same time.

Most of the tools that i found online were either less in compression rate or the quality was ehem.. Shit ! :P

So i came across this wonderful tool , which suited my purpose perfectly and saved the day!

Its super simple and effective , and the best part is the image quality was also reasonably OK.

Kudos to the guys at http://www.shrinkpictures.com/ !

Visual Studio 2012 Page Inspector

Ok so here goes my first blog post ( Deep breath ).

So i`m going to start with something really simple , but yet useful in every day work.

With the MVC 'invasion' , everybody seem to be talking about it and trying it ( Including myself).

MVC can be a tricky b**** at first , but once you have  got the hang of it , its pretty obedient.

Anyways , lets cut the small talk and get in to business!

No "Design View" when designing MVC Views ?

So when you do start on MVC , one thing that you`ll notice is , there is no design view like we used to have with good `ol ASP.Net.

So how can you view the changes that you make to your Views` HTML without browsing to it?

Fear no more , Visual Studio 2012 introduces an awesome new tool!

Enter PAGE INSPECTOR !

I browsed all over the web and asked a lot of people at my work place and people that i know , it was surprising that most of them were not aware of this tool , which comes built in with VS 2012.

How to Use Page Inspector


  1. Right click on your View.
  2. Select the "View in Page Inspector" option.

































and Voila!



So there you have it , i wont go through each and every detail and functionality of the Page Inspector as i`m pretty sure that you will be able to work it out your selves after playing around for a bit.

If you are too lazy to do it  , here is a useful video that can help you out.

If you are too lazy to do even that ! , post your questions here i will answer them ( or will try to ).
