What’s on Your Desktop?

(A la Capital One: “What’s in YOUR wallet?” No, that’s not a plug.)  I thought I’d do an up-to-date share of a few tools that I’ve been using lately that I can’t live without; the things that I give icon space to on my Vista desktop.

GIMP Plugin Registry

GIMP – Think of GIMP as a free version of PhotoShop.  I’m not a real graphics jockey, but I’ve found GIMP indispensible for graphic file manipulation since I loaded it up.


Thanks to Scott Currier for his pointer to the SharePoint Utilities for Developers (SPUD).  SPUD is great for finding GUIDs, generating CAML, and any number of other things.

I wrote about ColorPic recently.  It’s a nice little tool that lets you grab color codes from your screen.  See my previous post for a little more about why I like it.
