Send .exe (executable) files via Gmail

 

We sometimes need small software (.exe) for our windows, which we try to download from the internet and the links provides us none other than rubbish toolbars. We just want our friend to mail that software via email. But, here’s the problem too. If you are a Gmail user and you try to send executable files via Gmail, you will definitely get an error that “XYZ is an executable file. For security reasons, Gmail does not allow you to send this type of file.”

This generally happens because you are not allowed to send executable files via Gmail. There is no error till you click on the Send Button. It will upload the .exe file normally, but at the sending time it will provide error that you can’t send executable files via Gmail. Sample error shown will look like:

If you are thinking to zip that .exe file then sending it via Gmail is also not a helping hand. All the extensions such as .zip, .tar, .gz, are not working with Gmail. These all zipping formats cant be used to send executable files via Gmail.

Send executable files via Gmail

The only way to send executable files via Gmail is to use the .rar format to zip the executable file. Still .rar extension is not being blocked by Gmail. We can use this as a trick to send our .exe files.

So, use .rar and send any type of file with any type of extension via Gmail.

Click Good Photos from Mobile Phone Camera

 

images (1)A good photograph doesn’t depend on the device it is clicked with. It is the art of photographer clicking it. We are often in a situation where we want to click some snaps to save them as memories. But every time we just can’t carry our Digital Camera or Handy-Cam with us. So, we just take our phone out, and save the moments. And the mobile phone camera is not up to the mark to click best photos. Although there are various phones available having a wide range of high resolution, high megapixel (8 – 14 MP) cameras. But still there are more users of moderate (2 – 5 MP) camera in their phones. Even your mobile phone camera can click the best pictures that you have ever seen. And this can come about by just keeping a few things in mind.

Picture1

Set Maximum Resolution – Image resolution can be defined as the detail an image holds. So, it’s important to set the mobile phone camera resolution to its maximum available value. This will provide the maximum definition of the captured image.

ISO Maximum – ISO is the measurement of how sensitive a digital camera’s sensor is to light. So, keep the device’s ISO to 100 or as higher as possible to capture some good clicks in the bad light scenarios.

White Balance – If your phone provides the feature of White Balance during image capture then experiment it while shooting in bad light. This can help to click some brighter images during dark.

Avoid Light Source – While shooting in low light, avoid the light sources at the back side of portrait, or any high beam light source in front of camera such as sun, halogen lamps. Even an open window in a dark room can create such problem.

Still the phone – When we press/touch the button after the cheese, the slight pressure to device can move the phone and photos get blurred. To avoid that, hold the phone still. Another method to avoid this problem is to use monopod or tripod stands along with the Self-timer option so that we don’t have to touch the phone for the click.

Wait after click – After clicking a photo, don’t move your phone. Hold it still, until the photo is completely developed or preview is not available on the screen. This is because same cameras take some microseconds more after the click event.

Avoid Zooming – Zooming controls the magnification of the scene and it gives closer view of the subject. But, for clear and better image quality, shoot in normal mode without any zoom.
