Totally Cool New Photo Viewing!

I just learned about a new application/plugin that people can use for a real snazzy way to present photo galleries. It’s called Cooliris (formerly it was PicLens). Products like Cooliris are so cool that it’s frustrating to know that hardly anyone uses them. You have to check it.

So what does Cooliris do? It takes certains compatible websites and allows the user to view the website/media in a really slick and attractive interface. I think of it kind of like turning your boring browser screen into a cool iPhone type experience. Using it is very easy. Just browse to http://www.cooliris.com/ and click on the green download button. This will install Cooliris on the browser that you are using. If you use multiple browsers, such as internet explorer and Firefox, you need to repeat this download for each one. Once it is installed and you’ve restarted the browser, you’re ready to rock. You should see the blue/green Cooliris box on your browser now, like in the picture below.

Now all you have to do is browse to a website/webpage that is compatible with Cooliris. Here is a list of supported sites for Cooliris. You’ll see that it includes a lot of popular photo websites such as Flickr, Facebook, Picasa, Zooomr, etc. Next time you visit your friends pictures on line, check out Cooliris.
