Pixa Safari Extension Makes Grabbing Images Easy



Remember Pixa? You should, because it’s awesome. Pixa was my pick, sir[1], to replace iPhoto on your Mac with a non-sluggish, non-horrible photo organizing app. And now it has added extensions for popular Online Web Browsers Safari and Chrome.

Click the new toolbar button and the extension pulls up a new sheet over the current web page, with all the pages images arranged into a grid of large thumbnails. Click to import them all, or select the ones you want and click to import those. The images are send to Pixa, ready to be used.

Once there, the pictures dumped into the main library, so you’ll need to sort on date added to find them. It’d be neat if you could specify a project to send them to, or just to tag the images as imported from the extension, but it’s no big deal I guess.

I like this extension quite a lot. You’d be surprised how many sites seem to hide their images, or force me to dig into the page source to find them. This Pixa extension helps with that.

Of course, you’ll need Pixa to use it, and costs $25. But if you have it already, or you need a replacement for
