Find Free Photos Firefox Extension
Presenting: The Find Free Photos Firefox Extension. Find high quality, free photos online straight from the Firefox address bar.
I made a Firefox extension that makes it easy as pie to find high quality, free photos online straight from the Firefox address bar. Awesome!
Earlier this year, I discovered that the internet overflowed with free, high quality photos. The revelation was documented in a post appropriately titled Find Free High Quality Photos Online. Ever since, I’ve used the sites I discovered to find great photos to use to freshen up the posts I publish on this site.
But searching each site manually is very inconvenient. What if there was an easier way? Now there is!
Presenting: The Find Free Photos Firefox Extension!
Just open a new browser window or tab, and enter
ffp YOUR KEYWORDS, for example
ffp mountain range. This will open a few new tabs, and search for your keywords on the photo sites. Easy as pie. Please note that the extension is dumb as a rock, so it won’t reuse the same tabs the if you do a new search. Instead, new tabs will be opened.
The source code is available over at GitHub; https://github.com/vskjefst/find-free-photos-ff-extension. Pull requests are always welcome.
