PicLens for offline?

Sup,

Got the PicLens add-on for Firefox and its freaking awesome for online image viewing on search engines like yahoo, google etc (kind of turns the pictures into an interactive scrollable wall).

I was wondering if there is an app such as this to view images offline on my computer?

(I'm running XP btw)


- Thanks

Wow, just d/led this. Pretty neat app, now I'm interested in an offline version!

*edit* just figured this out. copy the file directory into firefox, and then click the blue arrow icon in the upper right corner of firefox, and there you go!

I pasted the folder (containing images) into the Firefox icon and a web page pops up with access to the images in link form. Nothing happens though when I click on the PicLens icon in the top right corner of the screen, just says there is no content etc.

That's weird, mine works just fine for viewing pics with the method I posted. Here's a 3D wall of 'wallpapers', get it!?

I made it :)

Ok, now i made it ...

For those who want the same, just type in firefox.

file:///c:/<path_to_image_folder>

where <path_to_image_folder> shall contain your images.

Then, click on the BLUE play button at the top right of the firefox browser (below the control buttons of the firefox window : e.g., minimize, maximize, close).

And that's all
