Girlboss Tech Hacks You Might Not Know

stockphoto via I've never read Girlboss, so I apologize if I'm using that phrase wrong. I was going to use the term "Working Girl", but when I think of that term I immediately think of hookers. I'm currently knee deep in re-watching season one of Dexter with the Ice Truck Killer, so I'd like to avoid anything talking about hookers. I'm having enough nightmares as it is. These hacks are really for anyone that uses an electronic piece of equipment on a daily basis. So, errybody.

Discovering these hacks has been a lengthy process. I've either had a problem, and stalked the internet trying to find a solution, or accidentally stumbled on a hack that I now can't live without. So, here we go!

1. Typing Emojis On A Mac Computer

Many programs and websites on your Mac actually allow you to use emojis, you just have to know how to type them. To use an emoji on Twitter, Facebook, iMessage, Email, Instagram...

2. The One Trick to Improving Every iPhone Picture You Take

Did you know you can automatically place a filter, a very good filter might I add, on every picture you take on your iPhone. This is one of those tricks I accidentally stumbled on, but it is a game changer. I never take a picture without this setting turned on. Here's how:

1. Open to your Camera App. In the bottom right corner, you'll see an icon made up of 3 round gray circles. Click that icon.

2. You will be presented with several automatic filter options.

3. Those three dots in the bottom right corner will now be colored.

I personally will still edit my photos in Afterlight before posting to Instagram, but the difference that little filter makes is incredible. You can also add that filter to pictures you've already taken. Here's how.

1. Open your Camera Roll and select a picture.

2. Select the "Chrome" Filter from the choices at the bottom.

3. Click done and you're good to go. As you can see, it just gives your pictures a little something extra, don't you think?

I'm not sure if this one is just me being dumb and everyone already knew how this worked, but when I discovered this I felt like my world changed. I never could figure out how to make an image smaller/bigger in photoshop without distorting it. Now I can.

When you try and manually drag the corners of an image/element to resize it, it will get distorted, like this...

To resize without distortion...

1. Click one of the corners of your image/element

2. Change Width (W) and Height (H) percentage at the top of the screen.

How many office spaces have you seen on Pinterest with that awesome flip clock screen saver on their computer?

Yes that's my desk thank you for asking.

Setting an alarm is maybe the most tedious thing in the world. I'm of course being dramatic, except for the fact that I'm not being dramatic at all.

When I was trying to take this picture, the "burst" photo setting was helpful to get the right shot.

Need your phone charged, like, yesterday?

So those are my tech hacks I've picked up over the last few months. Have you found any that are not on my list that will change our life?!?! Tell me in the comments!
