Firefox Images Helpers and Tweaks

Firefox Image ToolbeltWith Firefox and a few handy extensions, you can take any gallery of photos or images and get more out of them. Where other browser might fall a little short, Firefox knows how to treat the image loving freaks out there. Need some help with your digital images? Firefox has you covered.

Image Toolbar – get that old IE6 hover-over toolbar on Firefox. You know the one that used to let you save, coy, print and more? Yeah I try to block using Internet Explorer out of my mind too.

Image Zoom – Allows you to zoom in on images to get a closer look. Of course, you still face the eventual pixelation of the image, but nice to have if you don’t want to export the image to an image editor.

PicLens – This is my favorite of the “view your images in a new way” extensions. PicLens instantly transforms your browser into an full-screen slideshow experience. It also comes with support for Flickr, Facebook and Google Images right out of the box.

Open Image In New Tab – I bet you can’t figure out what this extension does. If you said “washes the car” you would be wrong my friend. Get a new right-click menu option to open your images in a new tab. Yes, it really is that simple.

Have any other image extensions that deserve my attention?
