Free Online Photo Editor that works for high rez pics w/ nice Pixlr-like effects?

Are there any free photo editors that can work with higher resolution images (300dpi) and offer some of the effects that Pixlr-o-matic can? They seem to save to web resolution only.

Point me to a font size ruler.

I need a clear ruler with picas, points and line thicknesses on it, for measuring printed materials. I want it today. I'm in Australia and go shopping on the Gold Coast or Brisbane. The nearest thing I've found is at Officeworks but the picture is too small to be able to tell if it's what I need and they appear to only sell it online. I'm willing to pay up to $100. Maybe more if it's super-duper.

Showing work in a UX design portfolio without violating NDA's/intellectual property laws

I'm updating my UX design portfolio. I've signed a NDA with my current employer so I can't show work that isn't already live. However, I have a lot of great mockups & wireframes I made either for prospective clients (that we didn't sign) or clients whose sites we haven't made live yet. I designed some amazing mockups for a huge client, but their site won't be live until 2013, and I really want to show my work now. How do I show my work in a way that doesn't violate my NDA?

Wear your retainer

Freelancer filter: I'm a graphic designer / creative consultant. I've been at it for 15 years. I like the freedom, but have never been particularly good at invoicing etc. I have a client wanting to work out some sort of "retainer" situation but, frankly, I'm not even sure what this could be like, how it would be structured, and why it would be better for me than my current status. I'm all for regular paychecks... So there's one. Anyone have experience with similar arrangements?
