It’s always good to help other people out and even the smallest of things can help to put a smile on somebody’s face for a day. In a world where there is often little money available, however, we are restricted in terms of what we can do because we need our money for other important things. That doesn’t mean to say that there are still not things that we can do for other people though because with a computer and an internet connection we can still help people in certain ways that don’t need to cost a single penny. Here are a few suggestions of how you can use your computer to do something for somebody close to you.


Make a Card

With imaging software such as Photoshop you can use your computer to create greetings cards when it is a special occasion. Because you are making the card yourself you can customise as you like to create whatever you want. You can take different photos of members of the family, for example, and put them together to make a single montage. If you have a quality printer then you could print the card ready to gift it to the person you are giving it to, alternatively you could find a print shop that will do it for you.
You can also use imaging software to help enhance photographs and old pictures you may have. Sometimes when you take a photo you may have an imperfection such as red eye or maybe something in the background you would rather not have. With imaging software you can edit the photos to remove what you don’t want to improve the picture. Similarly, many pictures fade with time and you can use computer software to create a replica that is as vibrant as the original. An ideal example of this is wedding photos or maybe photos of deceased relatives from many years ago.


Repair Something

The internet is a great place to find instructions on how to repair just about anything you can think of. If somebody you know has had something laying around for a while that is in need of repair, you could try and find how to fix it so they can use it again. With any luck you won’t need any special tools or equipment to make the repairs and you can do so without spending a penny. No matter what you repair, whoever you are repairing it for will surely be delighted at being able to use it again.


Find a Recipe

If you know somebody that is due to be entertaining guests then they might be in need of a recipe to help them with their catering. It could be something simple such as finger food ideas or it might be something more advanced such as a three course meal. If you would like to help them beyond just finding a recipe then you could consider cooking all or part of the recipe for them. They will be sure to thank you when their day goes as planned with all guests happy to be fed such wonderful food.


Trace Your Genealogy

Many people are very interested in their family’s history and would love to be able to trace their family origins as far back as possible. The power of the internet allows you to do a great deal of research, helping you to trace your origins back further than ever before. Once you have completed your research you can put your findings on a chart and have it framed to be placed on the wall. You could even find that your genealogy chart shows that the person you are giving it to has very famous people in the past generations.
There are countless different things you can use your computer for to help your family and friends. If there is a particular task you want to do, have a look out for software that might make it easier for you.


You can also use your computer to teach somebody to play poker and when they are good enough to begin winning, they can play at www.pokerstars.co.uk.
