The mind-bending illusions that are created by photo manipulations make us believe in the most incredible things. This area of art is the excellent place where some artists can express themselves and the most unusual ideas and the others can derive inspiration from. Actually, there is nothing supernatural in the process of creating photo manipulations: you just compose several photographic images and create the desired effects with Adobe Photoshop, but the effect is still stunning though. When the artist’s professionalism, his or her experience and creative thinking fuse into creative process, it results in the wonderful artwork with its own magnetism. In these works you can find whatever you can imagine: the mix of styles and epochs, the unity of reality and supernatural phenomena, the emotions of the author and the feelings of the painted characters… It seems that these wonders can occur only in the versatile world of photo manipulations. Today let’s deep in the amazing atmosphere of winter photo manipulations that are presented in this post and feel their fairy mood!

Alright now fellows, are you ready for the next portion of web design goodies that we have prepared for you? I bet you are and now it is time to talk about some extremely useful time savers. Being one of the best web browsers Google Chrome keeps moving forward by gaining more and more awesome extensions. This move can be easily accepted as a wide-front offense to the Firefox’s reserves because we all know that Firefox has gained its army of devoted fans due to the huge choice of various extensions.

 

Google Chrome developers have decided not to invent anything new and to build extensions that have already become extremely popular for Firefox for the Chrome users as well. We must admit that this is a very effective strategy because well-known and proven extensions don’t need any extra promotion. Of course it doesn’t mean that you won’t find anything new at the Google Chrome extensions directory – there are plenty of useful new stuff there but you’ve got to be ready to see many familiar extensions.

 

1. Web Developer

 

 

The Web Developer might be familiar for you because there is a similar extension for Firefox. This is a great tool that adds a toolbar button to the browser with various web developer stuff. So if you stuck to Firefox just because of this software than this is your chance for migration.
