Free Video to JPG Converter enables you to take screenshots of a given video while you're playing it on the program's built-in player. The whole process is extremely easy: select the video, browse to the scene you're interested in and take as many screenshots as you want.
The good thing about Free Video to JPG Converter is that it allows you not only to take single screenshots (by clicking on the "Make snapshot" button) or pressing the S key) but also take multiple screenshots by selecting any of its automatic saving options. Also, there's the possibility of trimming the video so that you take screenshots only from a certain fragment.
On the downside, I missed having more configuration options, such as being able to choose the picture format, customize keyboard shortcuts or choosing a naming pattern for the screenshots. An easy-to-use, effective tool to convert your favourite movie scenes into pictures.
Earth Alerts uses a variety of online resources provided by organizations such as the National Weather Service, U.S. Geological Survey and Smithsonian Institution (just to name a few), to identify what sort of activities "Mother Earth" is currently dishing out on the planet.
To use Earth Alerts, you simply select the specific natural hazards -- earthquakes, tsunamis, volcanoes, tropical cyclones, wildland fires, landslides, severe weather, local weather, etc. -- and the locations that interest you. The application will then automatically retrieve the latest information from various live data feeds available on the Internet and present it to you in a convenient arrangement of reports, maps and images.
Earth Alerts has been available to the general public since 2005. In that time it has undergone a number of significant enhancements. As a hobby, a one man production and a labor of love, conceiving the ideas and creating Earth Alerts has been a (time consuming) pet project over the past few years!
