Pixlr – Free Online Photo Editor for Firefox

I couldn’t be more blunt with the headline, and it pretty much tells the entire story here.  Pixlr, a great online photo editor has now got an extension that will work with Firefox.  With it, you have access to import and edit any picture you find into the Pixlr web site.

Free Photo Editor Pixlr in Action

So who really needs Pixlr?  It is a great alternative for us normal people out there who may not need the entire Photoshop suite of tools, just a simple and easy to use editor.  Having it online and with easy access via Firefox makes it an even handier tool for the web developers out there to have access to.  The only thing you need to have to make it work is Flash. 

One more nice feature about the service is it is super quick.  Just playing around with the editor on its own, it loaded up in under two seconds easily.  To pick up the Firefox add-on for Pixlr, go check out the Firefox Add-on site.  To learn more about the Pixlr editor, be sure to visit pixlr.com.

Create, Save and Share Your Image Collections

There are several add-ons for Firefox that will change the way you can interact with images and galleries, and joining that clan of extensions is OutWit Images.  It is a simple, straight to the point image browser for the browser.  It does all the catching, saving and auto-browsing for you.

Image Browser for Firefox

The thing that makes OutWit Images different than other image browsers, is it allows user to save images right to the hard drive and browse from there.  From within Firefox, you can collect images from various web sources  with just a simple click of the button. 

The sleek design (as you can see above) is also worth pointing out.  It can also be personalized by selecting different background colors and views for the thumbnails themselves.  Here is a little more about this extension from the developers:

The images can be dragged and dropped into the collection basket, “the catch,” from which they can be saved directly onto the computer, displayed in a slideshow, or shared with others. It also offers a variety of other options including filters for viewing and saving the images, as well as, visible source information.

OutWit Images is designed for the collection of images, plain and simple.  You can pickup this add-on for Firefox on the Firefox Add-ons site or the official OutWit site too.

Gallery of Firefox Toolbar Customizations

Well, I put out the request to one and all to see what you have done to customize Firefox, and I got tons of responses.  It is always interesting to see how others are using Firefox to fit their needs – and how creative people get when it comes to moving around the basic toolbars and general interface of the browser.

Here are the best of the bunch!  Thanks to everybody who submitted!
