Unsplash Free Images

What if I told you that there is a website where you can find beautiful high-resolution photos that are FREE for both commercial and noncommercial purposes? For today’s tip, I’m sharing with you a gem of a site that offers just that…

Unsplash.com is full of excellent image collections. The photos are gifted by a generous community of photographers, and you are allowed to use them for FREE! You don’t even have to credit the creators, but of course, it’s nice if you do.

Ok, so now go browse the site and let me know what you think of the pictures! Do you know of other good sources of free high-quality images? If so, please share!!!

Pinned Browser Tabs That Open Automatically

Pinned Browser Tabs

Do you have certain web pages that you check daily? Perhaps you’re like me, and you keep your email or calendar tabs open all day, every day. Or maybe you like to have your social media account pages easily accessible. I personally hate having to open the same 2-3 sites every single day… so I found a simple and easy way to have your pages show up every time you turn on your computer and launch your browser.

Using the Chrome browser, open your favorite websites. Then, right-click on each browser tab and click PIN TAB. If you’ve never pinned tabs before, it’s a neat little feature that narrows the tab and moves it to the left of the screen. It helps keep things manageable and it makes it harder to close them accidentally.

Once you have all the sites open and pinned, click on the three dots icon located on the top right corner of the browser. Then click on SETTINGS.

On the settings page, find the section called ON STARTUP and then select CONTINUE WHERE YOU LEFT OFF.

So, the next time you open Chrome, the tabs you selected and pinned will open automatically! Now tell me, what sites do you visit every day?

Multiple Images On Instagram Stories

Did you know you can add multiple photos in ONE single Instagram story? If you are one of the lucky ones that have the new Photo sticker, then that’s all you need. BUT, if you are like me and don’t have that sticker available yet, here’s what you can do:

Whether you start your story with a photo or with just text, you can add multiple pictures with Instagrams text tool. Start by going to your phone’s Camera Roll. Find the image you want to use and COPY it. Then go back to your Instagram story click on the “Aa” icon (text tool) on the top right of the screen and PASTE your image. It will now display as a sticker. You can repeat the process to keep adding more images to the same story.

Additional Tip: To copy an image on iPhone, click on the export icon on the bottom left of the screen (it’s the square with an arrow pointing up) and then click on the Copy icon.

Welcome to my corner of the internet, where the coffee is hot, and so is the weather! I can’t wait for cooler temperatures… but I live in Texas, so you never know what the weather will be like from day to another. But staying indoors, where it’s nice and cool, gives me a chance to tell you a little bit about this blog.

I usually showcase samples of my recent work on here. A couple times a month, I’ll share tips about online tools, social media, or technology in general. I also post some personal thoughts and insight into my life in the hopes that you can get to know me better! So whether you’re a new follower or a longtime friend, I’d love to know what kind of content you would like to see? Comment below!

Restoring Tabs

Restoring Tabs

Sharing is caring, right? And since I care so much for you, I thought I’d share a little trick I recently learned. I’ve spent years working as a graphic designer, which means I’m in front of my computer quite a lot. I usually have 3-10 browser tabs open at once, and every so often I accidentally close one! Sometimes, I close all the tabs on my browser by mistake. Has that happened to you? You can search for your tabs in your browser history. You can also redo your online search to find the pages again. However, both of these solutions can be frustrating. So here’s a tip that might make you smile! If you use the Chrome browser, there is a super-easy way to restore closed tabs!

All you have to do is click on FILE and then on REOPEN CLOSED TAB… and poof! Your tabs are back!!! It takes about 3 seconds to restore them. Amazing, right? Do you have any browser tips you’d like to share! If so, leave them in the comments below!

Get More Instagram Color Options!

Stories are one of the most popular features of Instagram. And while they provide us with a lot of ways to personalize our posts, some of the most useful tools are not very easy to find. So, for today’s tip, I wanted to show you how to get access to more color options when drawing or typing on your story. It’s easy—just open the brush or text tool, and TAP and HOLD any of the default colors at the bottom of the screen. That will open a color slider with a rainbow of new color options! Do you know of any other Instagram hidden tools? If so, comment below!
