For BYOD users without photoshop..
Due to licensing, we are limited in our ability to install photoshop on byo computers. That doesn't mean you are without options for graphics software..
One that looks quite familiar to anyone who has used photoshop or paint shop pro and easy to use is Pixlr.

official site
https://pixlr.com/editor/

chrome store
https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/pixlr-editor/icmaknaampgiegkcjlimdiidlhopknpk?hl=en

This app is a google chrome browser plugin which means that it works on any machine, plus its free.

If you're still looking for a graphics application this might be one to try out.

For Windows 10 Users...

There's a little background service running on windows 10 that will collect data about your machine and send it back to Microsoft. This is in addition to the sharing and data collection options that you have when upgrading or installing.

I like informed choices so here's a tip..

run services.msc
look for a service called 'diagnostic tracking service'
right click, properties and change startup type to manual, press STOP and OK
If you have installed the latest service patch, it has been renamed to 'Connect User Experience and Telemetry Service'

If you find applications not working after the change, turn the service back on and test.

Using GoPro' they have recorded theatre in a 360 degree experience. Couple this with google cardboard and your smartphone.. https://www.google.com/get/cardboard/

An interesting app with Christmas just around the corner. Heard about on JJJ radio.
Goodonyou app can be used to influence your clothing shopping based on the reputability of companies on criteria such as how well they treat their workers, environment, etc. Worth a thought after the Bangladesh tragedy in 2013.

what interesting app have you come across recently?

Check your google chrome browser is up to date by clicking on the 3 lines icon (top right corner), Settings and 'About'
This generally updates automatically.

Your version should be 46.0.2490.86 or later.
Some vulnerabilities exist prior to this version so it's worthwhile keeping it up to date. 

Any questions, please visit the IT office/helpdesk
