Picks and tips

Windows Weekly tip of the week: Use Windows Live Photo Gallery to fix date/time of photos. WLPG lets you sort photos by date taken, group by camera, and adjust time relatively.  It's under the Edit tab select all the photos from one camera click adjust time and you can bump it however you need too. Thanks to Matt Battaglia for the tip.

Windows 7 app pick: Image Resizer - Image Resizer for Windows is a utility that lets you resize one or more selected image files directly from Windows Explorer by right-clicking. I created it so that modern Windows users could regain the joy they left behind with Microsoft's Image Resizer Powertoy for Windows XP. Thanks to Brent Burzycki for the tip

Windows Phone 7 app pick: Tasks At LastFull-featured Exchange task client (Exchange 2007 and 2010 only, not third party solutions). $3.99
