    Best Free Application for windows 7 2013 Guide



    In this guide I will recommend some free software that I use and find it very useful for 2013. All this software has been tested by me and I've been using them for a while. The best part is they are *Free* The free version will just work as fine, But if you like it I would recommend buying the Full version just to support the developers so they can keep bring out updates. I will keep this list short and just list the most useful and important ones. Will try to add more when I have time. If you know some good ones you can also reply to my post and let us know. Here is the programs I think is must have and I install them every time I rein...

    A Tutorial on Tips to Edit your Photos.

    Everyone wants nice photos. So do I, and so I've created this tutorial on tips to editing your photos to make them look nice and clean.

    Today, we'll be looking at the more common type of photo editing, which is the simplest of all, but the effect is drastic.

    If you have been on Tumblr, or maybe Pixiv or Zerochan, you would notice that some users actually " edit " photos, to differ from the original. One example, which is mine is like this :

    Original :

    Edited :
    Do you get what I mean? Easily put, it's just changing the picture to make it look different. So, today, I'm going to teach you how to do that ^^. First off, get a picture you want to edit. Try to get something that isn't copyright protected. Note that you MUST always credit the artist of the image NO MATTER WHAT. It's rude to take other people's wo...

    A simple guide in making GIFs -- The Slideshow Image Version.

    A guide to making GIFs, Slideshow.

    * Note, in the final GIF, those words at the bottom are my watermark to show that I was the one who made the GIF. And yes, I do have a Tumblr.

    So what happens is that first, you need to have a set of CGs you want to make a GIF out of.
    We will be using Photoshop.
    Take note that any image can be used, though make sure they are all of the same sizes.
    So I'll be using Starry Sky ~ In Summer ~ CGs here, to show you that nice effect when the images are linked together.

    Picture 1 :


    Picture 2 :


    Picture 3 :


    So first, what I will do is to Sharpen the images. The Sharpen function can be found under Filters : Sharpen.


    When you're done with that, in the first image, duplicate that layer. Most likely, you'll end up with a second layer called : Background Copy.


    Make sure the background COPY is selected, then go to Filter, Blur, MOTION BLUR.

    How I Judge Artworks: Critical Thinking/Practice

    Article By: darkandshadow





    I'm seeing a lot more people, not just in forums, but in classrooms, outdoors, etc. taking on new challenges for increasing their aesthetics. Some people can grasp the concepts easily, while some others have a little trouble with their first steps. That is ok. Sometimes it takes years of practice before you truly understand art, and its foundations. What I have put together here, is something I see, and critique art. You don't have to follow this to the letter, but understand that this is, but a mere guide to help you on your way.

    The Definitive Guide to Purchasing a Computer
    Article By: darkandshadow



    Note: I've tried making this as non tl;dr as possible without cutting out too much details. The modern computers are getting faster and faster, smaller, and smaller, and sometimes a little less pricer. Let's face it: eventually, we're going to have to give up that old machine that we fell in love with oh so many moons ago, and upgrade to one of the latest renditions of computing hardware, whether it be PC, Mac, or what have you. But with all of the new technology and “rederick” going on, it's sometimes hard to keep up with the intense pace. So what do you really end up doing? Purchasing some machine that you believe will get the job done, only to realize there could've been better alternatives. I should mention one thing about this kind of hardware: m...

    Facts about Japanese Hentai Games that you must know!




    Ok, in my life in Hongfire, I've noticed the same repeated questions, over and over again, until I got tired of it

    I can say to you that you can find these questions below in almost every torrent/download thread for hentai games :

    1. Is there english patch/version?
    2. Is there ways to remove the censor?
    3. Help! My computer cannot display the letters / the game won't start!
    4. How to open the file?



    I'm sick of those questions.

    To put an end to them once and for all, let me answer those questions.

    1. Is there english patch/version?

    NO, except interface translation (if applicable).
    All those hentai games that you have been enjoying are supposed to be only available inside Japan. And so there is no

  • How to Learn Japanese from Hentai Games!

    How to Learn Japanese from Hentai Games!






    I know many people in HF are fans of Japanese Hentai Game (or at least, know them). Although lots of people like to play them, most of them don't understand Japanese well (some even cannot read the kanas). So, to help you guys improving your Japanese skill while enjoying gal games, I'll give you a quick tutorial in learning Japs via Hentai games.

    First, you need to :
    1. Memorize all Hiragana and Katakana (it's like alphabet in English).
    2. Learn basic prepositions (e.g. に、で、と、や) & verb forms.
    3. Learn how to pronounce hiragana and katakana properly. Not so important. But you need to do this, because sometime words are not typed properly in games (e.g. 違う 「ちがう/chigau」 sometimes
