Фото Jambu is a little extension I originally cobbled together for an article in Linux Magazine. The extension demonstrated a simple but clever technique of embedding a website into a popup. In this case, I used the excellent Galleria framework to create a photo gallery extension.
When I delivered the article, I decided to repurpose the extension and use it as a showcase for my snaps. The source code is available at GitHub, and you can easily install the extension from the Google Web Store.
While doing research for an article in Linux Magazine, I cobbled together a simple extension for the Google Chrome and Chromium browsers. This is a one-trick pony that fetches the latest RSS articles from this very blog and displays them in a popup window.
The extension is customizable, so you can replace the default Scribbles and Snaps feed with any feed you like. You can specify the number of RSS items to display, too. You can read about the extension and download its latest release at the Scribbles and Snaps RSS page.
If you happen to use the Chrome or Chromium browser and you are looking for an easy way to spice up your photos with vintage effects, the Lomo+ web app is right up your alley. Using the app, you can apply a wide range of high-quality vintage effects to any photo on the web without leaving the convenience of your browser.
Once installed, Lomo+ adds the Modify in Lomo+ command to the right-click context menu, and you can use this command to open a photo in a web page in the Lomo+ editor. While Lomo+ cannot open photos stored on your machine, you can work around this limitation by uploading the photo you want to give a makeover to Flickr or any other photo sharing service, and then open the full-size version of the photo in Lomo+. The Lomo+ editor puts 12 artistic vintage effects right at your fingertips. Click on the effect you like, and you will see the result almost instantaneously (the time it takes to process the photo depends, of course, on its size). To save the processed photo, use the Save Image command. Right-click then on the generated thumbnail and save the photo on your machine. That’s all there is to it.
