Best Flickr Greasemonkey Scripts

FlickrMany people love Flickr, but that doesn’t mean it is perfect. There are a lot of little things that Flickr could do better – and thankfully with a tool like the Greasemonkey extension for Firefox, you can put in what the Flickr developers might have left out.

Here are five of the best Flickr Greasemonkey scripts on the Web today.

1. Flickr Image Unblocker – This script gets rid of that annoying image that hovers over an image to keep you from saving it. It remove the “spaceball.gif” blocking and does so very well.

2. Multi Group Sender – This script enables you to easily send your Flickr images to multiple groups at the same time. It works by overriding the normal “Send To Group” button on your Flickr photo page.

3. Flickr EXIF Decorator – Hover over a photo on Flickr to get an unobtrusive translucent overlay in the top left corner showing meta data including camera model, aperture and shutter speed.

4. Flickr Shades – Changes colors of all Flickr pages pages to white text on a black background. You can also easily edit the colors in the script to whatever your preference is.

5. Flickr Photo Magnifier – Have a look at the notes on the images. Basically, when you toggle the magnifier on, you have a small rectangular magnifier on the medium sized image to look at the details. Great for seeing details in photos.

Automatic Photo Slideshow

When viewing photos or pictures Online, there has to be a better way to do it. I don’t want to have to scroll down the page looking at thumbnails.

That is so 2001! There has to be a more efficient way of getting this simple job done.

There is and it’s name is AutoSlideshow. The AutoSlideshow extension for Firefox allows you to view graphics on a Web page in a little “photo player”. Here is what the author of the extension has to say about it.

AutoSlideshow allows you to view slideshows of images of web pages or images linked to from web pages. This is mainly useful for viewing images of a page with no possibility for image browsing.

Auto Slideshow

Right now it has special support for: wikipedia, google, yahoo, facebook.com and studivz.net. As time goes by I could see a lot of areas where this simple extension could expand and get even better.

Easier Photo Management

If there is anything that I enjoy it is having a tool that makes my life just a little easier. Just like anybody else out there I love my Flickr account. I do wish I had a better way of managing and uploading my photos though. Well look no further, FotoFox looks like it is trying hard to become my new best friend.

FotoFox allows you to easily select, tag, title and upload pictures from your computer to an online photo album. Works with Flickr, Tabblo, 23hq, Smugmug, and Marela. It is still a young extension – and has plenty of room to grow. I do have to say though that it has one heck of a nice head start.
