My Top 7 Favorite Youtube Channels

My Top 7 Favorite Youtube Channels

I have always been an avid watcher of Youtube videos. Would you believe that I learned how to drive a Nissan Presage from watching a Youtube video? I was on an audit assignment in Brunei and I had to drive to our client’s office in an automatic Nissan Presage. Up until the first day of my new assignment, I had only driven a manual car.

How to Create a Circular Profile Photo with Pixelmator

How to Create a Circular Profile Photo with Pixelmator

Circle, or round, profile photos are all the rage these days. You can see them practically everywhere – from Facebook to Spotify to Twitter and Pinterest. What is it about circle profile photos? Well, there’s a lot more to it than simply aesthetics.

The reason why many social media sites use round profile photos is because it helps the user distinguish content from the person’s profile. Moreover, rounded edges are easier on the eyes and convey a message of safety, as opposed to the sharp corners of the square which trick the mind to thinking it is harmful.
