Google Images and Oiled Simians
I’ve recently been looking for some decent images I can display on a projector. I’m not a very artistic person so I’ve done the imaginative thing and gone on an Internet scavenger hunt. While Google images is actually a decent image search engine it’s got a couple of annoying quirks that I’ve been able to work around with a little application of Greasemonkey.
Firstly, when you click an image, you get sent to the containing page. This is very rarely what you want and makes you do a lot of needless hunting around the page for the image you wanted to see. Fortunately, the Google Images Re-Linker, written by Pat Cavit makes Google images do what you want most of the time; click the image and you get the image.
