Computer Utilities: get the most out of your computer

SequoiaView: I have so much stuff on my hard drive that I'm running out of space. Video clips and sound files are huge and I've downloaded them all over my computer. The trouble is I can't remember where they all are and which directories are taking up all the space. I found this nifty free program called SequoiaView that gives you a graphical representation of your hard drive. I now can easily find all my big files, save them to a CD-ROM and free up some disc space.

Restore deleted files: Ever delete a file, emptied your recycle bin and then need that file? Well, there might be hope - read about restoring files that you thought were gone forever. This free software won't work all the time, but I tried it and reocvered an mp3 I had deleted about a month previously. File download is at the bottom of the page.

Clean up your computer: remove those nasty spyware programs and get your computer running fast again.

Download AudioGrabber
. It's free software that helps you suck (rip) songs off an audio CD, creating audio files you can use on your computer. You can make MP3s with this software, but it takes an additional download. I recommend creating WMA files instead (Windows Media Audio is Window's version of and MP3.)

Graphics / Video

Picasa: Google has done it again, with this free software download that organizes all the photos on your computer - it's perfect for all those worship projection images you've been downloading at WorshipMax.com! Plus there's a simple photo editing feature that allows you to crop, fix the contrast and color, and enhance your digital pictures.

PhotoPlus 6: PhotoPlus has the features you'll need... from importing or creating pictures and animations, through manipulating colors and effects all the way to final export. Once you've got your image into PhotoPlus, you can enhance and alter its on screen appearance with a diverse toolkit of functions and effects. A full range of export options (with special attention to Web graphics), plus powerful optimization capabilities, round out this high performing package.

Download Avid Free DV - This is a streamlined version of Avid's top of the line video editing software. There's a lot to it, so you might want to spend an afternoon installing it and walking through the tutorials. Avid also provides free flash tutorials at their website - it's much easier to learn by seeing than by reading!

Edit worship background slides with the online image editor pxn8.com.

Screen Monkey is a free program that allows you to seamlessly switch between different types of media and directly full screen them to a second monitor.

Someone just emailed me about "ripping" a CD. You can do it with Windows Media Player but it's a little confusing. Try the free AudioGrabber and let me know if you like it.

Chord Chart Wizard: WorshipIdeas subscriber John Huss writes: "Chord Chart Wizard is a free software program designed primarily for worship leaders, to automate the creation of documents like: music (chord charts), overheads, Powerpoint, song sheets (handouts), and set lists. Whether you're a full-time worship pastor, a college worship leader, a guitar player, or a jazz musican, this program can save you time and make your music and materials look more professional."
