Socializing Your Favorite Pics

Posted on 11.08.2007
Some images are so compelling as to warrant an action on the viewer’s part. But when you come across an image on the Internet, you're forced to right-click, save the image - sending it to the no-man's (or woman’s) land know as your hard drive if you want to take a look later. If you deem the image worthy enough to share it with your friends, you're then forced to dig through that cluttered file structure of yours, find it and then send it off to your online pals.

The answer to your question is yes. There is a better way - social bookmarking designed specifically for visual contents. Who's doing it and doing it right? for one and they're enabling the image obsessed to remember their favorites and share them with a great deal of convenience.

Say you’re tooling around checking Google Images for a new background for your desktop. If you were registered with and had the services’ bookmarklet installed within your browser, sending that image to the platform can be done quickly in a few clicks. When you are on a page with an image, click the bookmarklet and then select the image you would like to add to your account. Add a description, a few defining tags and its saved for later viewing.

What’s clever about is the social bookmarking twist placed on standard image galleries. Being able to share you photo bookmarks with the rest of the Web is bound to help us all find more cool stuff more often.
