We all tend to collect little programs and apps that do one thing very well and then linger on our hard drives for years. As you declutter for the new year, consider replacing some of them with these one-purpose sites tech blog Gizmodo recently collected.
If a photo you’re sharing has a blocky, low-resolution look, send it along to Let’s Enhance, which uses neural networks to improve the photo’s resolution and enlarge it. You’ll need an account to view the results, but you’ll be able to choose from a variety of options.
If you work with relocation or other customers who may be in different time zones, TimeandDate gives you a display of clocks much like what you see in TV newsrooms. You can customize the clocks and their order, and if you sign up for an account, you can use your preferences as a default display whenever you go to the site.
As the internet grows larger and net neutrality shrinks away, different sites may load or not load at different times, and you may run into speed difficulties. DownForEveryoneOrJustMe gives you a way to see if the site you’re checking on—maybe your own—is broken for everyone or whether the problem is at your end.
And if you’re tweaking your site and want a pleasing array of colors, check out Palette Generator. While many sites can offer you collections of colors deemed to work well together, Palette Generator lets you upload graphics—say, your site’s logo—and suggests options that work well with that color.
