Makes Flickr almost awesome - while waiting for SmugMug to fully fix it ;-)
What is Flickr Fixr?
'Flickr Fixr' is an Edge browser add-on designed to enhance user experience on Flickr. The extension reinstates old features, introduces quick navigation tools, and highlights photo geotags on maps. Users may also personalize their experience through an options page, where specific features can be enabled or disabled. Flickr Fixr aims to offer a seamless and explorative photography experience.
A multi-feature add-on to fix some annoyances, make Flickr more "explorative" and bring back some lost features...
The current major features:
Album-teaser column on photostreams. In one of the big Flickr-updates some years ago, the column to feature a photographer’s albums or collections disappeared and made Flickr less gallery-like and less inviting for exploration in photographers' “backlog”. But Flickr Fixr puts back a column featuring albums on every photographer's photostreams. The 10 first albums as sorted in Flickr Organizer are shown in this column.
Direct tag-links to same photographer's photos. When hovering the mouse over a photo-tag, Flick Fixr adds an extra link in tag, pointing to the same photographer's similar tagged photos.
Links to album-map and album-comments. Adds two extra links in "album headers". One link pointing to a map with current album's photos, and another link pointing to the old hidden/forgotten page with album comments. The last is also a great page for reading (and editing) long album descriptions.
Highlight geotagged photo on associated map + Google Maps link. Makes sure geoposition of photo is highlighted when following link to Flickr Map from a geotagged photo. Plus, on the photopage for a geotagged photo, also adds a link to show geoposition of photo directly on Google Maps.
Flickr Fixr may not be safe to use and it requires some risky permissions. Exercise caution when installing this add-on. Review carefully before installing.
Flickr Fixr is probably trust-worthy. Prefer other publishers if available. Exercise caution when installing this add-on.
