Flick The Pic – Quick Access to Your Photos From Firefox

Posted in Firefox, Firefox Extension, Free Storage on Internet, Photo, Sidebar, Social Bookmark, Extensions on September 22, 2007 by Ethan Dickenson

I use the Flickr photo service because it’s a great photo management site but also because there are a lot of tools available so I can manage my entire online photo experience. One of those tools is the Flickr Sidebar and it’s a great way to look up pictures while you are working on your blog or website or when you want to send an email of a picture… You simply click on your AllinOne Sidebar and it gives you a list of thumbnails on your left panel. If you don’t see what you want you can either search for your photo or just page through them. If you are not using Flickr yet, you should. They are one of the best sites for managing, organizing, and sharing photos. They helped define the online photo business.

You can download the Flickr Sidebar for Firefox at the link below.

Sadly, the one thing that Flickr doesn’t do well is organize their ‘tools page’. To download the flickr uploader that I’m using and recommending in this post click on this link.

Breedlink: Flickr Uploader for Windows

The Flickr page of tools is at http://www.flickr.com/tools/ They have a new uploader specifically for XP and a plugin for Windows Explorer that I have yet to use, so I can’t recommend. I’ll be checking those out in the next couple weeks and I’ll post my opinion on them then.

History, The Key to The Present

Posted in Firefox, Firefox Extension, Sidebar on September 15, 2007 by Ethan Dickenson

Enhanced History Manager (EHM):  Another Extension that should be part of the Ff product.  I don’t even remember what an un-enhanced history looks like.  I want as much help as I can get when it comes to finding a web site I’ve been to before and EHM breaks it out by day and gives me a search window which makes it easy to pull up where I’ve been.  EHM integrates with your all-in-one Sidebar seamlessly.  This is a good standard tool that has been around nearly as long as Ff itself, so you know it’s reliable and it’s never had a problem running when Ff upgrades, you can’t go wrong with EHM.

Quick Access to a Calculator

Posted in Bookmark, Firefox, Firefox Extension, Sidebar on August 22, 2007 by Ethan Dickenson

This is a really quick way to access a calculator. It has saved me from having to go look through my start button menu, access accessories, then find the calculator…  It is most accessible if you’ve already installed the All-in-One Sidebar because then you just pick the calculator from that menu and it will display in your sidebar.

This calculator will pop up in your right sidebar and this does everything that most “power” calculators can do…
