New online photo browser with a great UI
« on: January 26, 2008, 02:26:50 AM »

I just came across and tried a new free browser plugin that generates a great full screen slideshow from Flikr, Google Images, Photobucket, and social networking sites.  

http://www.piclens.com

In Firefox on a Mac running Leopard it worked great.  Safari was not successful for me, though.  The interface is very simple and intuitive and the design is nice, sleek and iPhoney.  For the price ($0), it seems hard to beat.  These guys also have a free slideshow that can be embedded in a website to avoid the need for viewers downloading a plugin.  I will give that a try soon, too.  I have no affiliation with these people, but highly recommend checking it out.

In installed the plugin into my browser and became so enamored with it that I enable PicLens support on my own photography site. I find this has quickly become my preferred way of browsing image sites.

I was surprised that, unique as it is, PicLens didn't even rate a blip on this forum.  I walked away from the topic to avoid looking like a software shill, but still use it often.  I like the way it works in Firefox best, which is quite different from it's UI in Safari.  

I also took a look at your site, Sean.  Great images and a very clean, elegant site design.

And yes, I still like it a lot...
