A PENNY SAVED IS A PENNY EARNED !

Just now i finished shopping. Went to the Market, bought some vegetables, groceries and fruits.
Every shop keeper used to give me things in a carry bag & ignored that plastic bag.
As i took a Bag with me, i saved 7 carry bags in total.
I started thinking while i'm on the way home !
O If every one starts ignoring plastic bags,
O The shop keeper will buy less bags.
O The industry manufactures less plastic.
O It will have a drastic change in pollution......
O WOW !!
I hope alteast one reads this blog and changes his shopping strategy !

THE MS-PAINT TRICK !


One day i found out that saving a picture file in ms-paint reduces the file size.
But wait a minute, Paint is used to draw simple diagrams. But how come it reduce the size ?

DO THESE STEPS:

O Take a picture file. (Especially a picture taken using a Digital camera)
O Usually they are at least 1.5 to 4 MB / file.
O Now Open this file in Ms Paint.
O Just Select FILE -> SAVE.
O Close the paint window, now check out the file size.
O Don't forget to Say Bingo !

Example: (To view the actual size, click on the images)
The one with the RED tie was me posing with my friends on convocation day !
This File about 2.53 MB is the Actual one taken using a Canon 8.0 Mega Pixel camera.



This File about 500 kb comes after saving it with ms-paint.
Look at the clarity !
