PicLens, Lets You Really See Your Photos.

I ran in to PicLens and I was hooked. I am not a professional photographer but I take a lot of photographs. Managing these photographs has been a pain as I like to keep them near me at hand (I have a image server running at home) but most of them are either on Picasa or Flickr. But I am seeing a different perspective of all these since I started playing with PicLens. I am seeing many a possibilities and new ideas for photography presentation.
I installed the Firefox plugin of PicLens and Cooliris Preview (That is another story !) and have been getting to know them, a lot.
PicLens to images is what Google to the web.
PicLens plugin transforms your browser, Firefox, IE or Safari into a full-screen 3D experience for viewing images on PicLens enabled sites across the web. But big sites like Google, Yahoo, SmugMug, Flickr, Photobucket, and DeviantArt are supported directly. I have installed PicLens Lite and adding my photos. The new interactive "3D Wall" lets you effortlessly drag, click, and zoom your way around a wall of pictures for an extraordinary viewing experience. The new search box lets you search the Web in full-screen using Google, Yahoo, SmugMug, Flickr, Photobucket, and DeviantArt. Just type a query and view all the results in the PicLens wall.
Super work PicLens team!
This will keep unsocialized for a while I get to know the society photographically.
