Using Easy Thumbnails

Easy Thumbnails is a freeware software tool. The installation and usage are very simple. The user just needs to pick the pictures and set a few simple parameters, such as size, brightness, contrast or resizing algorithm. He can also set a new naming convetion for the newly created files. The tool is very fast and is perfect not only for webdevelopers but for anybody who wants to shrink a higher number of pictures, without having to open them separately or uploading them to third party website.


De-bloat Google Images

The current version of the <a href="">Google Image Search</a> has several usability improvements above the old one. In my opinion it also has flaws: if you click on an image in the search result list it points to a site called "Google Image Result" which displays the actual image in the foreground and the website where this image was found in the background. The old version of Google Image Search (which is still available in the Austrian version <a href=""></a>) has some similar behavior. The intention of this page is to select if you want to either view only the image or the whole website. For me, neither of these two versions work especially well. Both, the old and the new approach load a whole website where I'm only interested in a single picture. One more negative aspect of this behaviour is, that there are no direct links from the search result view to the actual image files. In nine out of ten cases this makes me feel kind of slow. I'm looking for a way to modify the search results page of google image view to make the links of the individual pictures point to the actual files instead of the intermediary preview page.
